Square Enix has announced today that Rise of the Tomb Raider will release on the 11th of October on PS4. Originally released last year on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and early this year on PC, Rise of the Tomb Raider comes to PS4 with lots of extra content.

Called 'Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration', the PS4 version includes the original game, a new story chapter entitled Blood Ties, a new co-op mode Endurance, new "Extreme Survivor" difficulty mode, PlayStation VR support for "Blood Ties", all of the previously released DLC, more outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards. In addition, those who pre-order the game will receive the game's Limited Edition which also comes with a limited edition art book filled with official concept art and community contributions.

"Blood Ties, a new premium DLC, beckons players to explore Croft Manor in a new story mode; then defend it against a zombie invasion in Lara's Nightmare," said Square Enix. "When Lara's uncle contests ownership of the Manor, Lara must explore the estate to find proof that she is the rightful heir, or lose her birthright and father's secrets for good. Players can then test their zombie-killing skills in the replayable Lara's Nightmare mode: a haunted Croft Manor where players have new challenges and must rid the Manor of an evil presence."

As for the new co-op mode, Endurance "lets fans raid tombs in a brutal wilderness together. Two players must team up to survive the harsh elements by day, as well as lethal threats from enemies by night. Fire takes fuel, food restores health, and every resource must be hunted, collected, or crafted. Battle to the top of the leaderboards, as others try to beat your longest survival run."

In addition, the game will also come with a Classic Lara card pack, which allows players to replay the main story with five classic Lara models.

All the extra content, with the exception of PS VR, will be available on Xbox One and PC too. Season Pass holders will be granted access at no additional cost.
