Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Has Two Different Developers for Xbox One and PS4


Yesterday it was reported that the next-gen versions of Tomb Raider run at two different framerates with the PS4 running at 60fps and Xbox One's reaching 30-45fps. Now it seems that information comes with reason as two different studios are working on the higher resolution editions.

In a news release on their website, Nixxes Software announced that they have been working on the PS4 version of the game. They also outed Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games as the helmer of the Xbox One version.

"Nixxes Software is proud to announce that it has been working on the Playstation 4 version for the recent announced Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition!" They also noted that they "provided support to United Front Games" during the development process.

Nixxes noted that the DualShock 4's lightbar will glow red and orange while Lara is using a torch and also quickly flashes when Lara is shooting her gun to replicate muzzle flash. The Xbox One also has some special functionality as the Kinect can be used to "change weapons, attachments, and navigate the menu with your voice." The Kinect can also be used to observe artifacts more closely by using hand gestures.

The Definitive Edition is set to release next week, January 28th and contains tons of content including multiplayer extras, "Tomb Raider: The Beginning" comic book, "Tomb Raider: The Art of Survival" art book by Brady Games, and the documentary series "The Final Hours of Tomb Raider."
