Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition crashes onto Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service that gives Xbox One owners access to over a hundred games for $9.99 each month. It's similar to Netflix where certain games — like Microsoft exclusives — will stay there forever and experiences from third-party developers rotate in and out.

December 2018 was a massive month for the service because games like Ashen, Below, Mortal Kombat X, and other high-profile titles became a part of the subscription. However, it looks like January will be even bigger. On Twitter, Xbox executive Mike Ybarra said that he had a chance to review the Xbox Game Pass line-up for January 2019 and that it was "awesome." Considering that Ashen and Below launched the previous month, the upcoming games will have to be massive to top that! We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.

Today, Xbox Game Pass added Tomb Raider: Definitve Edition to its catalog. Keep in mind that more games will be added in February like Pumped BMX Pro. According to Square Enix, the cinematic action-adventure that forced Lara Croft to grow from an inexperienced young woman into a hardened survivor has been rebuilt for modern consoles, featuring an obsessively-detailed Lara and a stunningly lifelike world. Lara must endure high-octane combat, customize her weapons and gear, and overcome gruelling environments to survive her first adventure and uncover the island's deadly secret.

You don't have to worry about purchasing DLC because the Definitive Edition includes bonus content and combines all of the downloadable content from the Xbox 360 version. Are you interested in Tomb Raider: Defintiive Edition? Let us know.

  • In my opinion this game is far better than Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
  • Agreed. My wife and I both played through all three games in order and we both LOVE the first one. The next two, while technically superior, just seemed to not "feel" as good. Still, all three are excellent games I highly recommend to anyone. I hated the old TR games but love this new series.
  • I, personally, put RotTR a bit above TR, but mostly due to the storyline, I much preferred the immortality stuff over the curse stuff. Both the first games I found better than SotTR, which felt like a let down (not that it was a bad game, far from it, just not as good as what came before it).
  • I have yet to play the latest one, though I do have to say I loved both of the previous two. TR was probably a little better because it was so unexpected for me. I didn't like the original games myself, but really enjoy these.
  • I liked how fast moving action game the definitive edition turns out to be.
