Rise of the Tomb Raider Listed on Amazon for PC, PS3, and 360

Rise of the Planet of the Tombs

Retailer Amazon.uk has posted a listing for the next Tomb Raider game that shows it as available for both current-gen and last-gen platforms.

Announced at E3 last week during the Microsoft press conference, Rise of the Tomb Raider's reveal trailer (you can watch it again here in case you missed it) was short on details outside of the fact that it'll be on Xbox One, it's a direct sequel to the previous Tomb Raider game, and it's coming "holiday 2015."

We've reached out to Square Enix representatives to find out whether this posting was made on accident, or whether it's an unintentional early reveal of the game's platforms. The US Amazon site currently only lists the game for Xbox One.

I hope this is true. As of now I don't intend on buying a ONE. I like to just play games I don't need the rest of the stuff.

The previous game became profitable on 360, PS3 and PC. I was pretty convinced this was going to happen, though not officially announced.

Too bad they are releasing this for the pc.. I used to complain that console games never went to pc. I know why now.

This QTE mess was horrible.

I played the first one all the way through on PC with ultra settings and then again on PS4. Knowing this game was a port from the X360 it was staggering what hey did to it when it was upgraded to the PS4 from how it was on PC. I'm sure whatever we end up with on the new systems will be at least as good and I'm ok with that.

For those of you worried about this news, phantom pain is also for last gen and from what i have seen the game looks great even on last-gen. Hardware wont stop a good game from being entertaining. And its not even confirmed if it will be on ps3 and xbox 360.

"Rise of the Morning Wood" only available on Next-Gen and Xbox One.

I also thinks this begs the larger question:


Why on EARTH would you preorder ANY game that isn't coming out for at best another year and a half of which you've only seen ONE itty bitty trailer?  (And this from someone who loved the last one and was happy to see this announced)


Patience, people.  Or don't complain about the hype train.

Really looking forward to playing this game on next gen consoles.

The last Tomb Raider was surprisingly brilliant, and I have high hopes this one will be, too.

Folks, if we have learned anything, never, ever trust what any online retailer lists as fact.  Ever.  How many "release dates" have been "leaked" by whoever only to be completely bogus?


When Crystal Dynamics says what this is on, I'll listen.  Amazon?  Gamestop?  Strange French discount outlets?  Take with salt.

oh dear. Games being released in 2015 should be next gen exclusive. Why let 9 year old hardware drag us all down? Take a hint from AC:Unity or the Witcher and go next gen exclusive. Exclusive games push the new hardware and create progress.

As someone who's played every single Tomb Raider game since the first one. I'm totally cool with the new Rebooted Tomb Raider series. Yes it's different than the original series, but it's still a lot of fun. Gameplay mechanics keep changing over the times, if they remained the same, you'd get bored of the series after a while.


I really liked TR 2013, and hoping for a equally impressive sequel.

And the bastardising of the original tomb raiders continues.

What are they talking about??  The only version of it I can see on Amazon is the Xbox One version.

If Amazon have it listed for PC, why can't I follow it for PC on here? Is it because there hasn't been an official announcement, or are we just playing catch up with the mountains of E3 articles that came through?

£54.99 and free delivery, sounds like a bargain.

I've already told myself I wouldn't buy any "next gen" game that was on both new and old consoles. Not only for the fact that the old consoles will likely hold the new game versions back but also because the older versions are cheaper and likely just as much fun. Especially online where the population is still higher.

So is this going to be a childish shoot and loot like the last one (although a very well made one) or the more adult oriented puzzle game like the originals? Yeah, there were some puzzle elements in the last one, but they were light.

i hope it comes to xbox 360 my pc cant run it and dont have a new system. :P

I doubt the PS3 or the 360 will be alive at the end of 2015, since now, for example, GT servers are down and you can´t race online anymore so, why make a game for "old" consoles that might be deserted on 2015 holiday?

devs need to move on from last gen at some point. it doesn't do anyone any favors to keep them around that long

I don't mind this for now. But the "final" game in the reboot in 4 years (when She finally ditches Bow and arrows for dual pistol full time and right before she discovers a T-Rex still walk the earth  :) ) should be for XBoxOne, PS4 and PC.

Crystal Dynamic knew their missing on the Tomb Raider reboot. And they have said about bringing a real Tombs to the sequels and still hold the strength of the reboot to this sequel. The new engine make the game more amazing. I am hoping for seeing some gameplays. Really looking for this sequel. 
And I am playing Tomb Raider 2013 again for the 19th times :))

I'm fine with this.  I hope as many people get to experience this game as possible.  We are not at the point quite yet where we can ditch the older consoles.

The last Tomb Raider was fantastic with a great storyline, gameplay and was really well polished. If they can deliver a similar experience with this one I can't see them going far wrong with it.

I loved everything about the last game except for the other characters especially that angry black chick and that celebrity scientist Fool (NOT BEING RACIST HERE I just don't remember their names and that black girl had no right to be angry at Lara all the time).

Don't care, Lara Croft and Tomb Raider are dead. She died when they hired a voice actress for her who isn't even British, tried to turn her into a lesbian for some inexplicable reason, made the game about third-person shooting instead of calculated platforming and made her personality completely bipolar (cutscene Lara is weak and helpless while gameplay Lara is Rambo).  The reboot sucked.  Sure it made a ton of money (mostly off of people who weren't even fans of the original games most likely) but that's what's so tragic about it.  We're never going back to the good Tomb Raider.  Instead we're stuck with this garbage. No thanks Square-Enix.

Right...what the hell is a QTE?

Its shame people are strapping you to a chair, forcing you to play on PC.

@themc_7 I don't agree. There are a lot of us that like our 3's and 360's and have no need for all the social media stuff.

@EasyComeEasyGo LOL  "angry black chick" Tomb raid was just bad as far as story and characters outside of Lara herself

Chr0noid
Chr0noid

@EasyComeEasyGo So, you loved the characters, except you can't remember any of their names....now what does that tell you about the characters' impact on you?  Could it be that they were in fact not very memorable?  You referred to one of them as the "angry black chick."  If a character is written as a bloody stereotype then the writer is doing something wrong.  Great storyline?  Please, I scoff at that notion.

@Chr0noid Camilla Luddington, voice of Lara Croft, 2013, is British, you loony. 


Also, anything about lesbianism is you projecting onto the game, because it isn't in there.

What everybody else said plus Camilla Luddington IS British, she's from frickin' Ascot...

@Chr0noid I am a fan of CD's Tomb Raider series (Legend, Anniversary and Underworld) and I found out that if you don't compare Tomb Raider reboot to the old series, the reboot is worth to buy and play. It was amazing and so enjoyable.

And I really hate the controls of the old series. Even I have known the series for a long time but I only enjoy CD's Tomb Raider series. And still love the new game for sure.

And if you don't want it or hate it. Just ignore it. Did CD and SE make you to buy their games?

@Chr0noid Even if her character was a lesbian why would that matter? I'm sure you'd cope somehow!

@Chr0noid I have been fan of Tomb Raider franchise for 15 years, one of the first games I have ever played and also my most favorite franchise.

Tomb Raider (2013) was an amazing game, sure it stepped into slightly different direction, but it still was worthy prequel/reboot.

There was not a single hint that Lara is lesbian, none. There was plenty of platforming and puzzles, maybe not the best or most clever puzzles but they were not the worst either. Lara never was helpless, all this game and story was about woman who ended up in impossible and terrible situation, but found a strength to fight back, survive and help her friends, even was forced to take other people lifes. Experience that shaped her into person who we all have seen in earlier games.

Looks like your own delusions and misunderstanding of this game made it terrible experience for you.

@Chr0noid It made money because it was a high-profile game that was actually pretty fun. I didn't feel she was portrayed as a lesbian at any point (are women forbidden from having best friends now?), it did have platforming, and I didn't feel a dichotomy between cutscenes and gameplay (It was more of a "must continue and survive at all costs" than "Rambo" to me, and who wouldn't be freaking out in a situation like that?).

@Chr0noid His post says he loved everything about the game EXCEPT for the other characters. Not sure whether you missed that, or the post was corrected after you made yours?

@Chr0noid I guess that's why the only character most people know is lara croft, even though there have already been so many games. The one thing I enjoy about the new lara though is that I don't have to spend the game hopping and shooting. The combat is a lot more realistic. It's also  nice to for once see her not look like a cartoon character. The puzzles where a little on the light side, but that's just where gaming is going to ever since the majority has become the casual gamers.

@Saidrex Slightly different direction my ass.  The previous Tomb Raider WEREN'T THIRD PERSON SHOOT EM UP GAMES.  Stop sugarcoating it.

I also been playing Tomb Raider since the PlayStation started the gaming world and I for one enjoy the newest Tomb Raider and I also got it on PS4. Chr0noid has always hated the reboot Tomb Raider so I'm not surprise he/she is piss off that Tomb Raider is getting a sequel.

@Chr0noid @Saidrex So what is it? Tomb Raider is FPS? I remember is a third person adventure game. Don't like it, don't buy it. Crystal Dynamic has made a good reboot.
