Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Is Not Coming To PC

At Spikes’ VGX Awards show announced something that we’d all come to suspect; Tomb Raider is coming to PS4 and Xbox One.  Dubbed Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, a short trailer was shown promising the true next-gen experience with the game being completely rebuilt for PS4 and Xbox One.  Seeing as the PS4 and Xbox One are basically PCs should we expect a PC version?  Turns out we won’t be getting one.

In a huge FAQ, Square Enix has squashed any hopes of the game releasing on PC.  “Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was designed and rebuilt from the ground up for next-generation consoles. At this time a PC update is not planned.”

The FAQ also revealed that there will be no upgrade program for those who already own Tomb Raider on PS3 or Xbox 360.  Last year, games like Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag allowed next-gen users to purchase their games for only $10 if they had already purchased the game on PS3 or Xbox 360.

Crystal Dynamics argues that they’re giving players enough content to justify the $60 pricetag.  These include numerous visual improvements and including all of the DLC content ever released for the game.  Those that pre-order will also get an exclusive art book.  They’ve also hinted clues to the future of Tomb Raider will also be included.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is out January 28 on PS4 and Xbox One.
