    All sounds great, but just to clarify; the co-op for the Endurance mode will be available to season pass holders?

    So, no Artbook Edition for Xbox One users? Is this a joke? I mean, I'm glad I can get all new content through the season pass, but this seems like a nice FU to Xbox gamers. Trying to make things right with Sony or something stupid? Yes, I'm quite angry about this.

    I have the same doubt. The co-op for “Endurance Mode" doesn't appear on the list above but it does on the question below. Will it be avaliable with the season pass on Xbox One?

    It doesn't seem very fair, this thing. Why should the "Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration" edition be only avaliable on PS4 and PC and not on the Xbox One? I know many people who were waiting for something like this to buy the game and now they're quite angry. I understand you must make PS4 owners happy after the long waiting but this is like a punch in the face for the One's fanbase.

    Well it's probably because tomb raider hasn't even been on xbox for 20 years, it has only been on it for 10. Half the time of which it has been on ps & pc which SE excluded from their deal.

  7. #7
    Yeah not only the Xbox One players. There are also couple of guys (like me) who played it on the 360. And we are getting nothing of it at all, even though the same company develops/developed the PC and the 360 version... -____-' Guess who we are feeling...

    Are we Xbox 360 players at least getting the new outfit cards, when we are excluded from the new DLC modes...? I am REALLY pissed, because I feel like we don't need to get the whole game. These stupid different versions on every *** console of one and the same game are a plague...

    Hey, whoever is responsible, would be great if you at least fixed the bugs in the 360 version that are preventing some players who actually still enjoy the game from finishing the expedition mode! When we are already left out of new content...

    In my opinion, Xbox has received quite a lot already, including almost a full year of exclusivity. They've got to give something to PS4 owners. If it matters that much to you, just check eBay or something after the PS4 version launches. Someone is bound to sell their art book.

    PS4 owners are getting the game + all DLC for $60, is that not enough? Why should PS4 players get something extra? As an Xbox gamer I didn't ask MS and SE to make the timed exclusivity deal, so why should I be 'punished'? We're all Tomb Raider fans, right, regardless of platform?

    FYI all, more FAQ's are in the works and will be posted once available. Please be patient

    I have it on PC, but will get it again on PS4. Cause I don't have the season pass, and want all the extra stuff in one package in physical. Anyway, is the PS4/PC artbook edition only available as pre-order? thank you.

    You did not ask for it. But you got it. And PS4 Tomb Raider fans had to bear watching first Xbox and then PC Tomb Raider fans get and enjoy the game and it's DLC while they had to stand on the outside looking in, as well as having to endure two years of absolute silence about the PS4 release, except for a single confirmation of the release last year. I can tell you how difficult that was. I was one of them. Trust me, madam; the slight you feel now is as a sneeze in comparison to pneumonia. So in order to compensate, PS4 fans get all these extras, including the book.

    You are absolutely correct: we are all TR fans. That is the single worst damage that this deal did to the fanbase: it sundered it and segregated the fans, and caused great strife and division. This release is an effort to repair that breach, with PS4 getting the most out of it, since PS4 fans suffered the most, by far.

    Come on. We waited a whole 11 months for this. I mean it would be cruel if they just gave us the game and be like, 'Hey, now you have to pay the same xbox players did when the game came out for them for the season pass.' This is there sorry to us.

    And if your REALLY DESPERATE, rather spend your money on this ( https://www.primagames.com/games/20-...aider/products ). Your welcome

    12 outfits? So Valiant Explorer stays XBOX ONE exclusive forever?
    I've spotted it in Infographic though. If it will be released then maybe it's 13 DLC outfits?
    Let's see if I'm wrong:

    01) Sparrowhawk (Sparrowhawk Pack Pre-order DLC)
    02) Apex Predator (Apex Predator Pack Pre-order DLC)
    03) Nightshade (Wilderness Survivor DLC)
    04) Immortal Guardian (Prophet's Legacy DLC)
    05) Hope's Bastion (Hope's Bastion Pack Pre-order DLC)
    06) Ancient Vanguard (Ancient Vanguard DLC)
    07) Shadow Runner (Tactical Survivor Pack Pre-order DLC)
    08) Siberian Ranger (Siberian Ranger DLC)
    09) Spirit Weaver (aka "Remnant Outfit", Remnant Resistance Pack Pre-order DLC)
    10) Pioneer (Endurance Mode DLC)
    11) Valiant Explorer (Pringles Promo, XBOX ONE Exclusive DLC)
    12) Wraithskin (Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch DLC)
    13) Ushanka Camo (Cold Darkness Awakened DLC)

    that is my question too! they're saying that we're being excluded from endurance co-op and blood ties! does that mean that we'll get the outfits and the new difficulty mode? im confused! nobody answers questions about 360 anymore! and this happened with other dlc too! they only cover xbox one or pc and we just wait to see what we get!

    I have recently bought the 20 anniversay edition from Amazon's UK site.. At the back of the art book there is a space for a disc but there is no disc. I returned this and received a replacement and there was no disc in the replacement either. Other customers on Amazon have said the same thing. Is this correct or should there be a disc. Thanks
