Microsoft confirms Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to Windows Store


After being exclusively available on both Xbox One and Xbox 360, Square Enix’ Rise of the Tomb Raider game has been confirmed by Microsoft’s Windows Store twitter account as ‘coming soon’. This announcement comes after news that the game will be heading to PC January 2016 via Steam. Not much else has been said about when we can expect the game, or whether it may coincide with the Steam launch, but now Windows users have a big game to look forward to after two months of Xbox exclusivity.


A brief description of the game can be found below:

After uncovering an ancient mystery, Lara Croft embarks on a journey throughout the most treacherous and remote regions of the world to find the secret of immortality. Forming powerful new alliances and relying on her intellect and survival skills, Lara will ultimately embrace her fate as the Tomb Raider.

Featuring epic, high-octane action moments set in the most beautifully hostile environments on earth, Rise of the Tomb Raider delivers a cinematic survival action adventure where you will join Lara Croft on her first tomb raiding expedition and witness the rise of an icon.

You can check out the listing on Steam here, though it wont be available until next month.
