PlayStation owners might just be celebrating Christmas much earlier than expected as Sony has just released its yearly 12 Deals of Christmas, and the first on its list is a 50% on the "Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary Edition".
PlayStation will kick things off by releasing the "Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary Edition" at half the price. The deal was not available on Black Friday or even Cyber Monday, so it's definitely worth trying out especially if you're into crypt exploration expeditions.
The "Rise of the Tomb Raider" was released on November 10, 2015, on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. A special edition of the game titled Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration was then released. The "Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary Edition" features a much younger Lara Croft on her very first tomb raiding adventure. The storyline follows Lara Croft's adventure as she goes deep into Siberia to search for the city of Kitezh while going head to head with a paramilitary organization that's hellbent to stopping her from getting to the city's promise of immortality.
The "Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary Edition" mainly focuses on combat and survival while going through some various optional tombs. The game has received positive reviews on its release, with several critics giving its gameplay, characterization, and graphics thumbs up, Game Faqs reported.
The "Rise of the Tomb Raider" was considered as the bestselling Xbox One game on its Christmas Week released, and even sold more than one million copies at the end of 2015. The sales were more than what was expected that an additional content was released, which includes a whole new story campaign, an additional gameplay mode, and even new weapons and outfits for the Tomb Raider.
What makes the "Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20th Anniversary Edition" different from its previous versions is that it features a whole new crafting system. This allows the players to create items like various arrow types by using the materials that players can scavenge from the plants and animals that can be found in the open world.
