No Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for PCs

A new Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition FAQ is online to answer questions about the upcoming enhanced edition of the Tomb Raider reboot which will include DLC, preorder content, and spiffier graphics. One of the things they confirm is that the already spiffier looking PC edition of the game will not be getting an update, as they say: "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." They also note this will not come to last generation consoles, and that there will be no upgrade path for next-gen consoles, where the game will be a full US$59.99. Thanks MCV.

Fuck them. Bought Tomb Raider Survival Edition for the PC at full price. One of the few games I bought for full price in the last year. And now this ass rape for PC gamers again. Guess how many more Tomb Raiders I will ever buy at full price again dear Square Enix? Yup. You got it. You assholes.


If them deciding not to re-sell you the same game for full price feels like ass rape to you, you must live a pretty irritated life.

No, he's saying they should be putting out the additional stuff as a free upgrade for existing owners and he's right.

It sounds like the only additional stuff is the spiffier graphics, right? The rest is DLC. Companies don't give old users free DLC when they release a GOTY edition, so I don't know why this would be different.

As for the graphics, as Blue mentioned, the PC version already had better graphics, and these new graphics are being done specifically for the consoles, meaning there's no attempt to make them work properly on PCs. Since the PC already looked better, not sure why anyone would care.

So, basically, it's improved graphics, which the PC already had (just not to the same extent), and it's DLC, which is already available to the PC if I read correctly.
