Lara Croft GO is available now on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita
Big news out of the 2016 PlayStation Experience! Square Enix Montréal announced that the critically acclaimed Lara Croft GO is available now on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and is fully compatible with PlayStation 4 Pro computer entertainment system. To celebrate the occasion – and as a #TombRaider20 tribute – Square Enix Montreal collaborated with indie studio KO_OP on a new story chapter, “Mirror of Spirits”. Inspired by Croft Manor and classic encounters with Lara’s doppelgänger, the chapter includes new puzzles, mechanics, achievements, trophies, and more, available first for PlayStation.
“We’ve partnered with the talented artists at KO_OP to deliver a new Lara Croft GO chapter all while retaining the spirit of the Lara Croft franchise,” said Antoine Routon, lead engineer and co-creative at Square Enix Montréal. “Extending Lara Croft GO beyond the mobile platforms is a testament to the game’s success and our team is incredibly proud.”
In Lara Croft GO for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita systems, Lara Croft will use her wits and weapons as she delves further into dangerous chasms, filled with mystery, artifacts, and peril. Featuring an ambient, mesmerizing soundtrack, soothing art style and didactic turn-based puzzle solving that made the game a critical and commercial success on mobile platforms last year, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions feature finely tuned controls, trophies (including a platinum), as well as cross-buy and cross-save functionalities so you can purchase and play it on both platforms without losing progress.
“This has been a momentous time for Lara Croft, as the industry and gamers worldwide have joined us in celebrating The Year of Tomb Raider,” said Rich Briggs, Global Brand Director at Crystal Dynamics. “Lara Croft first appeared on PlayStation in 1996, and 20 years later it’s exciting to pay homage to this legacy by bringing Lara Croft GO to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita first.”
Lara Croft GO is available today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita for $9.99/ £7.99/€9.99, with a 20% discount for PS Plus Members. The game will come to Steamthis Sunday, December 4, with the Mirror of Spirits expansion following three months later. Additional platforms will be discussed at a later date.
