Rise of the Tomb Raider for PC will be available this January, according to Steam Store. The news is an exciting one for the fans of the Tomb Raider games, who don’t own an Xbox. The PlayStation owners will have to wait longer for the game though, the game being scheduled for the platform in late 2016.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is an action video game, being the third one of a series. The player controls Lara Croft, who battles her enemies using improvised weapons and gadgets. The game was first announced in June 2014 and was released in November 2015.
At first, Rise of the Tomb Raider was released only for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, but gamers everywhere knew that it was only a matter of time until the game would be available for the Microsoft devices as well. A speculative date release was made by Steam Store as well as Amazon France. While Steam Store said that the launch will happen in the first month of the new year, Amazon France went even further and said that the game will be released on January 29.The game’s publisher, Square Enix did not make any comments though on whether the information going around on the Internet was right or wrong.
Even though Square Enix, the publisher of the game said that he was content with the number of sales so far, reports suggest that the game hasn’t done that well since it was released. So they should hurry up with the releases on other platforms.
An extremely disappointing fact is that the game has received exciting reviews when it was released. Some reviewers even said that it was better than the Tomb Raider 2013 edition. Even though it was one of the best games for 2015, it was sold really poorly, much to the dismay of the team. Game Spot gave the game a 9 out of 10 score and received approximately 80% positive reviews on Game Rankings.
The developers are hoping that the game will increase its figures once it will be released on other platforms. In the meantime, a free demo of the game was launched for Xbox One.
At the beginning of 2016, a new content for the game will appear, called Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch. This will enrich you game experience by adding new puzzles, tombs and a new campaign.
If you own a computer and you are a fan of the movie and of the series Tomb Raider, then you won’t have to wait much longer because Rise of the Tomb Raider for PC will be available this January.
