Rise of the Tomb Raider will be “timed exclusive” for just over ten weeks.
If there is any indication that Microsoft buying out Rise of the Tomb Raider timed exclusivity for Xbox One and Xbox 360 for “Holiday 2015” didn’t quite work out as intended, Square Enix is making it clear today. They have announced via press release that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be coming to PC on Windows 10 and Steam on January 28. That brings the total amount of time that the game will be exclusive to Microsoft hardware platforms to a whopping 78 days.

There are a number of features coming to Rise of the Tomb Raider on PC. For one, the game will support up to 4K resolution, while PC co-developers Nixxes Software will also be adding support for Windows 10 users.
“The PC release of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues the positive momentum from our highly successful partnership and collaboration with Microsoft for the launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360,” co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics Scot Amos said. “PC players are a passionate, devoted audience and we know they’ll embrace the version created for their systems,” added Ron Rosenberg, also co-Head of Studio.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will release on Steam, Windows Store, Amazon, the Square Enix e-store and brick and mortar retailers at $59.99 for the Standard Edition and $89.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition. That comes with a Season Pass to “nearly all current and future DLC.” The Square Enix e-store will also sell a PC Collector’s Edition that includes the Digital Deluxe version, a 12-inch Lara Croft statue, replicas of Lara’s journal and jade necklace, and a steel case.
