As one of the first last-gen games to get a PS4 or Xbox One makeover, all eyes will be on Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition when it takes to the stage later this month. After all, the game's name places plenty of billing on it alone; as Crystal Dynamics' Scot Amos puts it, "Really, we looked at it from the end of current-gen, through PS3, 360, and PC, and those were the starting points for this next-gen version."
Maybe this PS3 vs PS4 comparison, courtesy of IGN, will help you start to make your mind just how Definitive the graphical improvements are. The PS4 and Xbox One versions offer 1080p resolution, textures "blown up four times larger than they'd ever been," a more detailed head and model for the new-new Lara, more dynamic lighting, and other bits and pieces of cross-gen wizardry.
On top of the visual enhancements, Definitive Edition also includes the game's previously released multiplayer DLC, the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer add-on, six extra outfits for Ms Croft, and other digital extras like comics and docu-vids. You'll be able to scrutinize Tomb Raider in all its next-gen shininess when it arrives for PS4 and Xbox One on January 28.
