An iconic video game hero receives a herculean upgrade this week in the world of PlayStation. Legendary adventurer Lara Croft returns in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which launches Tuesday on PS4.
Originally released on PS3 last year, this reboot showcased the breathtaking and brutal origin story of a gaming great. But the team at Crystal Dynamics wasn’t satisfied with its already critically-acclaimed project. The developers doubled back and addressed every detail, making huge technical overhauls to take advantage of PS4’s hardware. The result? A visually stunning adventure, all displayed in native 1080p and running at a silky smooth framerate.
