‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ Hitting PS4 and Other Formats Next Year

The next installment of the Tomb Raider franchise, Rise of the Tomb Raider, will be available only on Xbox 360 and Xbox One when it is released in November. However, in a July 23 announcement, the gaming publisher Square Enix has revealed that the game will be available to PC users, Steam and the PlayStation 4 in 2016.

“Renowned developer Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, is leading development in the latest entry in the iconic series for additional platforms,” according to the released statement.

The game begins where the 2013 Tomb Raider game left off. Lara Croft is now in Siberia searching for the ancient city Kitezh in order to find the secrets behind immortality. As she navigates through the wilderness, she will be facing off with Trinity and the forces of nature as well.

New PlayStation 4 Will Add 1TB of Storage to Already Powerful System

According to The Financial Express, the ‘Ultimate Player Edition’ PS4 comes with double storage, meaning 1TB, and will be released across Europe on July 15. There is no news on a wider release as of yet.

This new PS4 will be a direct response to Microsoft’s new Xbox One, which will also have more storage capacity. With the new storage, gamers can download games, save highlights, share experiences and extend play with more add-on content.

This announcement is just part of a slew of new products Sony is releasing in the next few months. The company will also release an updated 500GB model PS4 that will be slimmer and more energy efficient for those who are looking for an upgrade.

These two machines will more than likely be released stateside during the holiday shopping season.
