Rise of the Tomb Raider will look incredible on PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider will have a bunch of PC-exclusive tech features when it is released on Thursday, January 28 on Steam and the Windows Store. The game's official YouTube page has posted a video showing off those advanced graphical effects.

Developer Nixxes worked with the game's original developer Crystal Dynamics to add the PC-exclusive features:

"This tech-centric feature details improvements available on the PC, such as anisotropic filtering, tessellation, dynamic foliage, and through a partnership with Nvidia, a high-end ambient occlusion technique called HBAO+. Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes worked tirelessly to push the PC version to new heights, giving players unprecedented visual fidelity and the most realistic-looking Tomb Raider adventure to date."

Of course, you'll need a powerful-enough PC equipped with the a newer graphics card for that high-end ambient occluding, but if you do... oh, it'll look good.

The Steam version of Rise of the Tomb Raider is already available for pre-order for $59.99. There's also the option of buying the game's Digital Deluxe Edition for $89.99 that includes the Seasons Pass worth of post-release DLC packs.
