"The Rise of the Tomb Raider" is now on its 20th year and in celebration of the anniversary, fans of the game are going to be treated with the release of the Tomb Raider game on PS4. It was reported that gamers can avail the game starting this coming Oct. 11.

"The Rise of the Tomb Raider" was initially only playable on PC and Xbox One but on July 19, through a blog post on Playstation website, it was announced that the game is coming to PS4 as well. The post revealed that it will be release on Oct. 11.

"The Rise of the Tomb Raider" on PS4 will have a new story entitled "Blood Ties." The game will be compatible with Playstation VR and will feature all the previous DLC updates and Expedition cards. New weapons, co-op Endurance and new outfits are other things to look forward to in the special PS4 version of Lara Croft's "Tomb Raider."

An example of what players will receive are Lara Croft's restyled cold weather outfit and her Hailstorm pistol which she used in the third sequel of the "Tomb Raider" game. With the expedition care, players will have the option to wear the original outfits that Lara wore since the game was launched in 1996.

The Endurance Mode is probably the biggest addition to the game. "We released Endurance mode for Rise of the Tomb Raider in December 2015. Since then, we've been thrilled to watch as you have hunted, foraged, and raided your way through over 600,000 game days of survival," Will Kerslake, senior designer at Crystal Dynamics, wrote on Xbox page.

Lastly, as a bonus, since this is going to be released as part of the 20th anniversary celebration, players will also get a limited edition art book when they buy the game. For those who have Season Pass for "The Rise of the Tomb Raider" on Xbox One and PC, except for the VR feature, they will be given all the extra contents for "Blood Ties," for free.
