Rise Of The Tomb Raider Clings To January 28th

This is what is so exciting about archaeology: we’re always uncovering new (old) developments, learning more, and reshaping our understanding of history. As recently as yesterday, our radiocarbon dating techniques could only broadly date Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] to a January release window. Today, a new development means that we now know a specific day: Thursday, January 28th. Isn’t progress exciting! I’ll be awfully disappointed if I don’t see, within a week, this breakthrough attributed to Albert Einstein by a Twitter account named e.g. ‘Science Is My Daddy’.

Nixxes Software, who you might remember from Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s port, are working on this PC version. Today’s announcement declares that the port has added “numerous features, including Windows 10 support and 4K resolution.” Heaven knows what’s so exciting about Windows 10 support! I suspect we might hear more of the technical nitty-gritty over the next few weeks, mind.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will cost $59.99 for the standard edition or $149.99 for a boxed version with a Lara statue and necklace and other jazz. I’m not sure how Square Enix will convert the $59.99 to real money, but that Collector’s Edition costs £109.99 on Xbox One. Strewth!

Oh, look! We’ve uncovered a scroll with the minimum system requirements too:

Minimum OS: Windows 7 64bit

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 650 2GB or AMD HD7770 2GB
