Dedicated Lara Croft fans now have the option to pick up a Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition for the Xbox One that comes with a 12-inch statue of the bloodied and bruised heroine. The price is on the hefty side, but reactions to the statue and the other physical goodies have been positive thus far.
Developer Crystal Dynamics revealed the Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition via the official Tomb Raider Tumblr blog. The total cost of the package is $150 and is available to pre-order now from the game’s store and will be available to pre-orderfrom Square Enix’s store and other retailers soon.
Rise of the Tomb Raider bucks the trend of collector’s editions being packed with in-game digital items. In an appreciated move by the developer and publisher, this one comes with only physical collectible items.
- Full retail copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbox One
- An exclusive 12-inch-tall statue of Lara Croft, which depicts her searching for answers on her first great Tomb Raiding expedition
- Collectible steelbook
- A replica of Lara’s leather in-game journal
- A model of Lara’s Jade Necklace, including the pendant that was her first archeological discovery, and the strap that was given to her by Conrad Roth, her late mentor
Rise of the Tomb Raider is due out November 10 for the Xbox One and the Collector’s Edition will be released alongside it.
Microsoft and Square Enix have already devised a crafty way of building up hype for the release of Lara Croft’s next adventure. Xbox announced yesterday that Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers will receive Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition for free on September 15 as part of the Games with Gold program. This is the remaster of the rebooted Xbox 360 release that comes with all of the downloadable content released for the game.
