Rise of the Tomb Raider 20th Anniversary

Rise of the Tomb Raider 20th anniversary edition ESRB rating is live. The 20th anniversary edition comes out with a Mature rating from ESRB. According to ESRB, Rise of the Tomb Raider 20th anniversary edition features blood, gore, intense violence and strong language.

This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Lara Croft, an explorer searching for an ancient artifact. From a third-person perspective, players use pistols, shotguns, knives, and explosives to battle various enemies (e.g., soldiers, animals, ancient warriors).

Players use stealth kills (e.g., stabbing enemies in the neck, cutting enemies’ throats, strangling) to dispatch unsuspecting soldiers. Battles can be frenetic, with realistic gunfire, cries of pain, explosions, and large splashes of blood. Some sequences show Lara getting shot, beaten, or dramatically impaled by swords/spiked traps. One area depicts a horde of corpses burned and disfigured by a fire; severed limbs and heads are occasionally shown on the ground. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.

The rating is exactly the one used for Rise of the Tomb Raider for Xbox One, Windows PC, and Xbox 360. Looks like there aren’t any changes to the game or new content that’ll affect the rating in any way.

Rise of the Tomb Raider released last year for Xbox and make it to PC earlier this year. Just days ago, Square Enix revealed its 20th anniversary edition for PlayStation 4. It comes with PlayStation VR support, a new intriguing zombies mode, and a co-op survival mode.

The survival mode is similar to the one we got to play previously, just with a co-op twist.

You can pick up Rise of the Tomb Raider on PlayStation 4 later this year. Pre orders are now live on Amazon and other retailers.
