Greetings everyone, seems like this great price is back again on Xbox One for the next 7 days :)


Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration includes the critically acclaimed Rise of the Tomb Raider, nominated for over 100 “Best Of” awards.

Xbox One X players can choose from three visual modes, including Native 4K for the highest fidelity resolution, Enriched Visuals for stunning graphic upgrades, and High Frame Rate for the smoothest possible gameplay.

Additional Xbox One X tech enhancements include HDR display support for more vibrant and accurate color representation, spatial audio support, including Dolby Atmos® for true 3D audio, enhanced texture resolution, and improved anti-aliasing for even more immersive and realistic details. Additional visual enhancements include improved volumetric lights and reflections, enhanced foliage, upgraded polygonal detail and amplified texture filtering.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration includes the new “Blood Ties” single player content, new Co-Op play for Endurance mode, “Extreme Survivor” difficulty setting for the main campaign, 20 Year Celebration outfit and gun, and 5 classic Lara skins. It also includes all previously released Downloadable Content such as Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, Endurance Mode, Cold Darkness Awakened, 12 outfits, 7 weapons, and 35 expedition cards.

    The standard edition is available via Game Pass on Xbox for those unaware.
    I don't believe you'll have the extras available like in this edition however.

      Reckon extra DLC worth it for $5.99?

      •  

        Not really.

        One of them is you being in a mansion and examining hundreds of documents. There's no combat, just finding and reading documents.

        The other is a survival mode.

        And then it's multiplayer modes.

          You forgot the Baba Yaga story based DLC.

          So that's 2x story based DLC packs, and a bunch of other modes.

          I'd say it's definitely worth it for $6 if you enjoyed the main game.

            @manbearpig: Yes you're right. I forgot about that one.

            It wasn't bad. That would clearly be the cream of the crop in the package. The story was very predictable though.

            Yes I agree it's worth it for $6 now that you reminded me. Though I wouldn't pay more than that for them.

            The mansion one was very forgettable. In fact, I don't remember what was in any of those 100+ documents. I do remember the ending though.

            I tried the other modes but didn't like them enough to play beyond that.

              @lostn: Yeah the mansion exploration was a bit odd but I liked the Baba Yaga mission.

            •  

              @lostn: To each their own. I actually liked the mansion exploration without the combat. It was very atmospheric, and I got TR2 vibes just exploring.

              •  

                @manbearpig: I don't demand combat. But making me find 100 documents by spamming Q was not fun, and the sheer volume of documents meant I couldn't remember the contents of a single one of them. The challenge consisted of circling around and around until you find all the well hidden ones. Hunting for hidden objects is not my idea of a TR game.

    Excellent game. First one had more crazy cinematic moments, but rise of the tomb raider perfected the gameplay. Way more fun then Uncharted, especially when played on a higher difficulty.

    Was tempted but then saw it was already in gamepass so no need!

      Gamepass version had no DLC though

    •  

      So I read your post, and then just checked out gamepass (I've actually just picked up a cheap 3 month live + gamepass… I wanted the live).
      HOW HAVE I NOT REALISED THIS!!!? Gamepass is incredible.

      Will a game like this still be available next month, or will it cycle out?

        It will be indefinite

        It was published by Microsoft so it will stay in the Gamepass lineup, unless there is some change in policy. Third party publisher's titles, however, are cycled in and out of Gamepass every month; only the Microsoft ones are permanent in the lineup.

    I grabbed this last time it came out for this price. Well worth it, comes with pretty much all DLC.
    I recommend bumping up the difficulty from default though. Bit too easy otherwise and you'll rip through it.

    already got it on game pass but i bought it for the super cheap dlc :)

    Nothing beats the original 1990 pc tombraider.

  •  

    Not as good as the first one but decent.
    Just don't get the third one. It's garbage.

  •  

    Already played the base game through but considering this has all the dlc (?) gonna pick it up for such a cheap bargain.

  •  

    I thought the TR games had fun gameplay. But I didn't care for the characters or story, unlike with Uncharted where I liked the characters and bought into the adventure.

    They nail the gameplay part, and for most people that's enough.

    The third game is a lot slower.

  •  

    Good campaign off-line?

    •  

      Yes, the multiplayer was horrible and dead on arrival. Don't buy any of the multiplayer DLC for the Tomb Raider games as it's just wasted money.

  •  

    I really enjoyed the Baba Yaga content, they took it to some interesting horror-ish places. But it was very short and I did want more.

    Great value for sure.

  •  

    Is this worth bumping up the backlog? Had it with dlc a couple years now and never loaded it up

  •  

    Do I need to have played part 1 to be able to follow the story? Or does it have enough recaps throughout that it's not necessary?

  •  

    Is this a physical copy?
