Lara Croft Looks Amazing on PS4 in this Video Comparison


IGN recently posted a video interviewing Tomb Raider’s executive producer, Scott Amos, as he talks about the graphical updates, added effects, and 1080p visuals in the upcoming Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. The video directly compares footage of the game running on PS3 and PS4, and the next-gen visuals do not disappoint. Lara’s character model has been redone, now featuring a more realistic, human-looking face, hair that flows like water, and skin that’s had some “subsurface scattering” done.

I’m not usually one to swoon over realistic looking graphics, but our tomb raiding heroine’s new look is pretty damn impressive. When details are so minute that you can “see the actual cloth in Lara’s shirt”, it’s hard not to dive in to the visual feast. And, remember folks, we’re still at the very beginning of the new generation. Think about how good games are going to look when PS5 and Xbox Two are on the horizon. Just think about it. It’s going to be bonkers.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will feature all multiplayer DLC, the “Tomb of the Lost Adventurer” add on, and a few new costumes for Lara to strut her stuff in. It will be released on January 28th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
