Rise of the Tomb Raider has officially ended it’s time-limited exclusivity on the Microsoft Xbox One and Xbox 360. Now PC gamers can fully enjoy the latest action-adventure title by Crystal Dynamics. Gamers once again take the role of Lara Croft with Rise of the Tomb Raider taking place a year after the events of Tomb Raider.
Struggling to explain the supernatural events that happened on Yamatai, Lara begins to look for answers through her late father’s work. This is where Lara stumbles upon the lost city Kitezh which could contain the supernatural power of immortality, easily setting her off to the next big exploration adventure.
Gamers have already been embarking on this adventure with Lara on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 when it first released into the market on November 10, 2015, but now the game has finally released for the PC worldwide. PC gamers may have been forced to wait a bit longer to enjoy the game, but here are five great reasons why it was worth the wait.
These five points illustrate just why Rise of the Tomb Raider is a much better purchase on the PC than Microsoft’s console.
#5 – It Just Looks Better
It shouldn’t come to much surprise that Rise of the Tomb Raider looks far superior compared to the console release of the Xbox One. Don’t confuse this with being a point simply putting down the Xbox One either. Yes, the PC versions of video games often look far better than console release but often times it’s the amount of money put into these rigs that get the game looking top notch. Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PC holds a few more settings that can be tweaked officially in order to get the game looking its best.
For instance, on the PC gamers have a bit more settings to push for higher quality which includes dynamic foliage, purehair and even tessellation. All of these settings increase the aesthetics of the game if only bit a slight bit. Again, these features are, for the most part, included on the Xbox One version of the game but they sometimes dropped down in quality in which PC users get the benefit of turning them all the way.
