Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have announced – via the game’s official FB page – that Tomb Raider has gone Gold. Darrell Gallagher, Studio Head had also a message to share, in which he thanked the fans for their enthusiasm and their support, and believes that they’ve created something that explores Tomb Raider’s history while pushing the limits in interactive storytelling and design.
“It’s been a long journey, and it feels like we’ve been on this one together. Thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support since we first revealed our new vision for Tomb Raider to the world. I am very happy to let you know that we are into the final stretch of what has been an exciting and challenging adventure for the last few years. Tomb Raider has ‘gone gold’ and is now en route to manufacturing ahead of the game’s official release on March 5th, so there isn’t too long before it will be in your hands.”
Tomb Raider PC will feature some specific graphical features, as well as support for DX11 and higher-resolution textures. Staying true to its latest PC versions, Square Enix has also overhauled the game’s controls for keyboard and mouse. The PC version is developed by Nixxes Software, the studio behind Hitman: Absolution and Deus Ex: Human Revolution!
Tomb Raider will also feature a Multiplayer mode, though we were not impressed with what we’ve seen so far. Here is hoping that EIDOS Montreal, the team responsible for it, will be able to deliver something more than an Uncharted-MP-clone.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
