It's sadly not for sale.

Rise of the Tomb Raider makes its debut on PS4 today in the form of the 20 Year Celebration edition. Sony has marked the occasion by showing off a particularly special version of the game that you're unlikely to get your hands on.

The PlayStation UK Twitter account today sent out photos of a PlayStation 1-era CD case for Rise of the Tomb Raider. This features not just appropriate box art, but a matching manual, too.

The game housed inside looks to be a standard PS4 copy, so don't expect to see footage of a PS1-era version of Rise of the Tomb Raider anytime soon. Still, it's a shame this wasn't offered as a collector's edition to commemorate the series' 20-year anniversary.

The 20-Year Celebration edition includes the same game released that's been available on Xbox One and PC. It also comes with all of its DLC, outfits, and weapons, as well as a new difficulty setting and PlayStation VR support. You can see a lot of what's new, including some retro-style skins for Lara Croft, in the game's launch trailer.

With today's release, you have the chance to claim 100,000 free in-game credits on all platforms. Simply log in to the game on PC, PS4, Xbox One, or Xbox 360 by October 18 to receive the freebie.
