An update on Steam has indicated that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be hitting our favoured system in January.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is/was an Xbox timed exclusive, with other versions due to arrive later. For PC, that meant “early 2016” (while PlayStation-ers will have to wait until the end of 2016). According to the game’s new Steam page, that “early 2016” actually means “January”, which is a bit sooner than I actually expected it.
No word on when in January we’ll be seeing Lara’s return, but I daresay we’ll have more information – and probably some screenshots, or something – before long. Its initial Xbox release was extremely well-received and I adored the previous title, so I’ve got pretty high hopes for this.
That said, this seems awfully soon after the November launch of the Xbox version. Hopefully that’s an indication that the game was always developed with PC in mind, and not that we’re getting a rushed port. We’ll find out next month, I suppose.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
