Square Enix has announced Rise of the Tomb Raider will launch on PlayStation 4 on October 11 in a new 20 Year Celebration edition. This version of the game will feature "a completely new story chapter entitled Blood Ties."
In addition to this, it will have new co-op Endurance gameplay, PlayStation VR support for the new Blood Ties chapter, all previously released DLC, extra outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards. A limited edition art book will also be included.
All this content will be available as part of a Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration edition for Xbox One and PC players. This, however, won't include VR support.
Current Rise of the Tomb Raider season pass holders on Xbox One and PC will receive this new content for free. The season pass will be updated to include this content going forward. A season pass does not exist for PS4 as all the extra content is included in the new version of the game.
Microsoft has revealed the $399 2TB version of the Xbox One S will be hitting shelves on August 2.
The company also confirmed if you've pre-ordered one, you'll be getting it on release day. If you want one of the new slim consoles, you can still pre-order from Microsoft's store, although Microsoft claims availability is limited so if you want one, you might want to be quick.
The 2TB Xbox One S will be available in the following regions: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK and United States. Other countries will follow later this year.
Elsewhere, there's a base bundle that comes with a 500GB hard drive and an Xbox One controller for $299, or you can get a 1TB version for $349. Microsoft says "more details on the specific availability dates of these two options will be shared soon," but the belief is these should also be coming in August.
Last week, the Xbox One S Kinect adapter price was revealed, but if you already own an Xbox One, you can request one for free.
Phil Spencer anticipated at E3 2016 a new business model for consoles based on new compatible configurations instead of generations. That was the official movement, the underground one was the PS4 NEO leak before the official confirmation by Sony.
The internal documents that described NEO and drew the guidelines for developers have been leaked. There is not new information in these documents, but it’s a great way to confirm the info previously leaked.
Over on Exophase, a Trophy list has appeared for the original Dead Rising, a game that has never deployed on a PlayStation system since its release in 2006. It's unclear if this is a straight port or a full remaster, but we could be getting our hands on it very soon. Trophy lists only appear when a game is very close to its release, which points to an imminent launch of this classic zombie adventure.
