[UPDATE] Tonight during the 2013 VGX awards, Square Enix confirmed that the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 28, 2014. Crystal Dynamics developed the new version of the game with two external studios. The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Tomb Raider will feature additional polygons and new environmental effects, as well as "real hair" for Lara. The game will run in 1080p, though Crystal Dyanmics did not say if this pertains to the PS4 or Xbox One version or both.

The original story is below.

Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One via the Definitive Edition, launching January 28, 2014. That's according to an advertisement for the game found on the 2013 VGX awards website spotted by Game Informer. The ad has since been removed.

Square Enix has yet to formally announce the new version of Tomb Raider, though the publisher is expected to do so tonight during the awards show, which starts at 3 p.m. PDT/ 6 p.m. EDT. Check out our roundup for everything you need to know about the event.

A previous Amazon listing for the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition suggested the new bundle would include the main game, as well as all DLC; this would include items like various Lara Croft skins and multiplayer map packs, among other things.

In addition to the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, a sequel is currently in development. For more on the Tomb Raider reboot, which failed to meet sales expectations at 4 million units sold, check out GameSpot's review.
