The lights are on
In a new video from Square Enix, we’re given a new look at how Lara Croft has been upgraded for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. With voice over from Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Scot Amos, you’ll see the updates to Lara’s face, hair, and skin, along with the additional tricks used to make her seem more integrated with the environment.
The inclusion of additional lighting effects, mud, blood and sweat, and little physics touches like the climbing axe swinging have all been added for this new version. Tomb Raider Definitive Edition will arrive on January 28. It will include all of the previously available DLC, which is largely confined to the game’s multiplayer mode. You can read our review of the original release here.

It's definitive because it costs more. Also boobs.
You're better off getting the original copy. Skin improvements, DLC for crappy multiplayer, and no increase in frame rate doesn't justify $60.
I have it. Haven't finished it yet. because it's boring to me. Besides paying $60 for improved graphics is not my style.
This is great for people who missed it on the last-gen console's, but as a person who played through it, I'm not really a fan of the price tag. I'll probably wait until a price drop happens, because it is a game worth getting, just not right now for me.
I can see some of the differences, but it's so much effort for maybe a 20% improvement overall. The gear jostling is one of those things that sounds incredible on paper but is completely unnoticeable when you're playing.
Did any of the NPCs get the same treatment?
If you didn't already play it on last gen consoles, I would definitely recommend it. I can't say that it would be worth $60, but I use Gamefly specifically for games like this where I'm not sure if it's worth buying or not. Maybe something to look into. I haven't played any other Tomb Raider games, but this one played out somewhat like a Splinter Cell game where you have the option of stealth or open combat when confronting the enemies. Overall, it had a pretty good story and was fun to play.
If it was cheaper I would buy it in a heartbeat, played it and loved it. For those who didn't hears a good chance to play it. Not much else is going to be released until end of Feburary start of March.
