Originally released back in November as a timed exclusive for Xbox One and Xbox 360, the critically-acclaimed Rise of the Tomb Raider was previously confirmed for release this month to kick off the new year, and now Square Enix has confirmed the exact release along with tons of new info about the game’s upcoming PC release.

Publisher Square Enix confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be releasing on January 28th, 2016, with the PC version available in three different pricing options. The first option will be the standard edition of the game for $59.99, while a Digital Deluxe Edition will also be available for $89.99 that includes “nearly all current and future DLC,” most likely containing the extra content from the game’s Season Pass (reg. $29.99).

The third option will be a special Collector’s Edition of the game for $149.99, which includes a retail copy of the game, a special Steelbook case, the game’s Season Pass, and various physical collectible goods: a replica of Lara Croft’s journal, her jade necklace, and a 12″ tall collectible statue of Lara. Pre-orders of the Collector’s Edition will also include a free copy of the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot on PC.

Alongside the PC release, Square Enix confirmed that the title will feature Windows 10 support and 4K resolution, as Square detailed that “PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they’ll embrace the version created for their systems.”

Square also released the minimum requirements needed for Rise of the Tomb Raider on PC through the game’s online store page, though no recommended specs were made avaialble at this time, which you can view below:
