Square-Enix has detailed the pre-order bonuses for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The pre-order bonuses range from the standard in-game costumes, to actual physical content. The GameStop bonus sounds the best, gameplay-wise, but seeing as we’re suckers for art books, the Amazon deal is pretty hard to pass up.
Exclusive in-game CHALLENGE TOMB
- In this exclusive standalone tomb, Lara encounters all new environment puzzles to test her brains and brawn.

- AVIATRIX SKIN: an exclusive 1930s adventurer outfit for Lara Croft, complete with bomber jacket
MCV also has some details on a Survival and Deluxe Edition of the game (collector’s), but Square has not officially released details or images, or whether or not these will be UK exclusive. According to MCV, the Survival Edition will include an art book, map, survival pouch, and codes for a weapons pack and the Tomb Raider soundtrack. We’re guessing this version will run about $100. The Deluxe Edition will contain all of the Survival Edition, plus a 6″ Lara Croft statue in a metal box, and going with current CE trends, will probably run $150.
As of now, Tomb Raider is scheduled to release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in March, 2013. No word on whether or not Lara will make a leap (ha!) to Wii U.
