Tomb Raider Is Being Ported To PS4 And Xbox One

By Ishaan . November 18, 2013 . 2:57pm

It looks like Tomb Raider is coming to next-generation platforms. Siliconera discovered the game has been rated in Brazil for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

 

Tomb Raider hasn’t received its equivalent of the usual “Game of the Year” editions one normally sees, wherein all downloadable content is included out of the box, so this would probably provide a good opportunity for Square Enix to release one of those.

 

Note that this is different from the next-generation Tomb Raider game that is currently in development.

    I’m Brazilian,and I’m not so sure one should actually believe this site….stuff around here is very inaccurate,sadly.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Hm. Perhaps Amazon Italy is a better source, since we know Amazon loves to leak things:

      http://www.amazon.it/Square-Enix-Tomb-Raider-Definitive/dp/B00GPO2H56/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1384792262&sr=1-1&keywords=Tomb+Raider+Definitive

      Complete with a description.

    • DesmaX

      Hm, never heard of cases of mistaken in the classification.

      And anyway, It does show the proper Xbox name (In which was releaved after TR released… or at least announced), so that means it was reclassified. No reason to do that unless it’s really coming

    • Lucky Dan

      These guys are the best they are quite impartial.

      Not as inaccurate as the gaming journalist sites quoting Sony President’s Tweet over 1 million sales and referring that to the source which every “gaming site” is doing without an official source.

      First they go off about other sites doing it and then they do the same thing to everything else. They are all claiming that they sold 1 million PS4 in America. I asked a source as it’s impossible to build that much due to sourcing component, constructing unique parts so copies of the PS4 don’t appear which is sold exclusive to Sony and due to labor shortages and so forth that it would be impossible, A million built by hand takes longer than a minute to construct a PS4 with so many components. Too much circumstantial evidence yet they only provided me source which is IGN and Kotaku.

      I claim that’s impossible a country such as the USA cannot get that sales data in 24 hours when we still can’t make a proper political count during an election !!

      Injustice Ultimate Edition also got leaked through this same same. Although at the time it said it was licensed for the WiiU too.

  • Godmars

    Its Square, so what else would you expect but a reprint to another platform.

    • LightZero

      Yeah because a game company should be loyal to one system when their sole purpose is to make money…

      • Godmars

        More like they shouldn’t thrown out more money after saying they didn’t make any.

        Despite selling 4 million…

        I mean, you asking people to double dip while also possibly not learning the lesson you needed to learn about over-advertising.

        • Shady Shariest

          Squeenix was waiting for 2 billion yen of losses on estimate, these plans could have been made back before XIV:AR lightened up the chart… To make some money,as well as getting a good standing on the platform for the big games coming like XV :P

      • 60hz

        more like they should stop milking the hell out of their properties and release something new… soon they’ll be remaking their remakes… final fantasy X HD SuperHD, any one?

  • nyobzoo

    1080p and 60fps, sure I’ll double dip

    • subsamuel01

      I think I might replay this as well. It was amazing the first time around, next gen should make the experience a lot better.

  • Michael Martin

    Sigh, I haven’t even gotten around to playing the PS3 version yet. Might as well wait for the PS4 port.

    • Masa

      our in for a treat, the game is amazing! This coming from someone who doesn’t even like the tomb raider games, now i cant wait for the next.

  • Xaltmas

    Couldn’t it also be a placeholder for the sequel that was confirmed to be in the works?

  • Pyrotek85

    I got it for PS3 on release, and later for PC when it was on sale. Both played well, but now that I have a beefier PC I don’t see the need for a third version personally. I have to say I did like the hair physics for the PC version though, and I’ve heard that these new editions will feature that as well. Anyone who hasn’t played should give it a shot, they did a great job rebooting the series IMO.

  • DesmaX

    Damn, you guys find stuff at the weirdest places.

    Not complaining

    • Arcana Wiz

      yeah… woaw, at brazil??? how they were able to dig this?

  • doubleO7

    I’ll bite if the next gen version has those amazing PC-only hair physics.

    • Pyrotek85

      One source I saw said that it will. Makes sense since both consoles have AMD gpus.

  • Aoshi00

    I liked Tomb Raider a lot, but don’t think I would double dip so soon just for a little graphics upgrade.. I would go for next gen if it’s new titles being released simultaneously like AC4 Black Flag or MGS Ground Zero..

    Wonder if Jpn would get the PS4/XB1 ports as well, the PS3/360 ver were censored a lot for the Jpn ver.. unlike other Cero Z games..

    Replaying PS2 classics in HD remaster after so long is one thing, but this port is way too soon.. I hope the next gen systems don’t get a lot of ports like this..

  • PreyMantis

    If true, you bet your arse that they would neglect the Wii U, like always. Never understood these developers. Why release a game on systems that were barely out with little numbers of people and not release it on a system that’s been out for a while with five to ten times the players on those system? Don’t they understand that video game consoles works as no games = no one buys the system; no one buys the system = no games comes out due to low numbers?

    Just my 25 cents-I-found-under-the-couch on this matter.

    • Rick R

      Five to ten times? After one day, PS4 was already over 25% Wii U’s life to date sales. By the end of the year it’ll have already passed it. The reason they make games for these platforms is because these consoles will sell a lot more, and Nintendo consoles generally have terrible sales with anything not made by Nintendo. There’s no money in it.

    • d19xx

      Probably due to the userbase/audience of the console. Most people that bought Nintendo consoles mostly buy Nintendo games and most 3rd party games are an afterthought.

      • miyamoto

        Couldn’t have said it better myself. You are so correct!

    • Shady Shariest

      X1 and PS4 have PC-architecture, which means that they can easily port the PC-release to them. Wii U would be too much hassle for them most likely.

      I’m leaving this here because the reply by @leevikoskivuori:disqus explains what the main reason is, and I think it’s informative enough that people could learn something from it. Typically, though, we don’t like it when people bring up the “Why isn’t this on my favourite platform?” type questions. I’m making an exception here since there’s more to it than simply low sales in this case.

      • Shady Shariest

        Oh. Thank you. *Actually amazed*.
        *Blushes*

  • sunK1D

    Kinda glad i didn’t buy this the first time around. I’ll get it for X1.

  • eilegz

    hopefully its not just a next gen port, few extras wont be bad

  • hazelnut1112

    Isn’t it a little too damn late for that?
    This really doesn’t make any sense to me. Why?

  • http://so-very.me/ Jenny

    Ooooo~ I already have it for PS3 though :P BUT!! It wouldn’t hurt to prolly get it for PS4 since my 3 is starting to act up >.> IT KNOWS!!

  • LustEnvy

    Bought it on Steam for like $8. This game is easily worth full price. I’ve never been a TR fan, but this one makes me anticipate what comes next. I’ll probably buy it again for PS4, assuming they can keep a consistent framerate.

  • Sergio Macellaro

    No bad, but with expensive price tag of ps4 on Brasil and preocupant errors reports on ps4, who cares?
    Ps4 to me no before 2015.
    Xbox one is a option, tho.

  • artemisthemp

    Hopefully they removed MP in this version.
