Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Launch Date, Pre-order Packs, Retail Gold Edition and Season Pass Details Announced


Revealed at E3 as the surprise sequel to isometric puzzle action-adventure game Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is officially slated to launch December 9th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Unlike its digital download only predecessor, Temple of Osiris will be available in a retail package in addition to downloadable releases across PSN, Steam and Xbox Live. The retail release, known as the Gold Edition, will contain a 3″ Lara mini figurine, an art book, a folding map of the Overworld, and a Season Pass for all post-launch DLC which will consist of six costume skins, additional tombs and new rings, amulets and weapons.


I haven’t been able to track down the cost of the Gold Edition, but the digital edition has been priced at $19.99, the Season Pass at $9.99, and a combo pack with the game and Season Pass for $29.99.

To the dismay of those who hate retailer exclusives and the surprise of absolutely no one, Square Enix has also revealed three game themed pre-order costume packs. Including:


• Pick up the Ultimate Augmentation with the Deus Ex Pack, only available on Pre-order to receive the exclusive Deus Ex themed skins, including Adam Jensen’s signature combat rifle and the Augment ring, which reduces the cost of treasure chests by 10%.


• Assassinate Your Enemies with the Hitman Pack, available on Steam and from participating digital retailers. Pre-order to receive the exclusive Hitman themed skins including the iconic Silverballers and The Agent ring, which gives your character increased weapon damage and more powerful bombs.


• Become a Legend with the Lara Croft Legend Pack, only available at GameStop. Pre-order to receive the nostalgic Tomb Raider Legend skins including a golden pistol and The Legend ring, which gives your character health regeneration powers and a more powerful torch.
