It was recently confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be making its way to Steam some time this month, and in an announcement today, Square Enix revealed that the latest installment in the Tomb Raider franchise would be available for PC and Windows 10 gamers on January 28. Rise of the Tomb Raider will remain an Xbox One and Xbox 360 console exclusive until Holiday 2016, when it makes its way to PS4.
"The PC release of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues the positive momentum from our highly successful partnership and collaboration with Microsoft for the launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360," said Scot Amos, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics, in the announcement.
"PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they'll embrace the version created for their systems," said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.
The PC launch includes a $59.99 standard edition and an $89.99 digital deluxe edition that includes "nearly all current and future DLC." A $149.99 collector's edition is also being offered, and includes a 12-inch figurine, replicas of Lara's journal and jade necklace, and a steel case.
According to Microsoft, Rise of the Tomb Raider has sold over 1 million copies, along with every other title in their exclusive 2015 holiday games line-up.
