Good news for Lara Croft fans intent on playing the Tomb Raider rebirth on the PC - our version won't simply be a half-baked port but rather something that takes advantage of the hardware muscle that only a gaming rig can deliver. Crystal Dynamics' senior art director Brian Horton notes that the environments in Tomb Raider won't have any postcard-worthy visuals, as its going for a grittier feel with darker tones and stronger colour palettes. "We spent a lot of time making sure that the standard here is good enough for someone who’s only ever experienced Tomb Raider on PC," says Horton. It will play just as seamlessly as its console counterparts, but much better-looking in the graphics department. "We’ll have things like being able to have higher-resolution textures - there’s a lot of details I can’t go into right now, but the PC version will definitely make those who have a powerful gaming PC very, very happy." Sleeping Dogs and Deus Ex: Human Revolution both pumped out some pretty awesome eye-candy on the PC, so it's likely that Square Enix will make Lara Croft a stunner on our monitors, even as she's fighting for her life.
