Making the deal even sweeter.

It was a bit of a bitter pill for PS4 players to swallow that last year's Rise of the Tomb Raider was a timed exclusive for Xbox One (it came a few months later to PC). But the game is finally coming to PS4 in October, and it's shaping up to actually be a pretty good deal that's just gotten even better: If you preorder Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4, you'll get a copy of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for free.
The preorder bonus was revealed on the PlayStation Store listing for Rise of the Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is the PS4 remaster of the Tomb Raider series' 2013 reboot that was critically acclaimed at launch. It's worth noting that this bonus is only for digital preorders; buying the game through the PSN Store will grant you a PS4 download for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is launching on PS4 alongside a suite of additions and changes to the game. On all platforms, the game is getting a new singleplayer, narrative-focused mode called "Blood Ties," a zombie horde mode called "Lara's Nightmare," and a co-op mode called "Endurance."
The PS4 version, called "20th Anniversary Celebration," will include all of these new additions, PS VR support for Blood Ties, all previously released DLC, and new costumes and skins. On Xbox One and PC, the new modes will be free for owners of the season pass. You can read more about the additions here.
The game launches on PS4 on October 11. When it originally released on Xbox One, GameSpot gave it a 9/10. You can read our full review here.
