Rise of the Tomb Raider is available from today onwards for PC courtesy of Nixxes Software and Crystal Dynamics. There’s a ton of graphical updates over the Xbox One version which have been detailed in a new video. Check it out below.

Some of the new features in the PC version include dynamic foliage, anisotropic filtering, hardware tessellation for uneven surfaces, improved LOD and ambient occlusion. That’s not including the support for 60 FPS and resolutions up to 4K which is sumptuous (for those who have the hardware to run it).

PC users will also be getting the Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch DLC which recently released for Xbox One and Xbox 360. This adds three more hours of gameplay along with a new bow and outfit for Lara Croft.

    You will need a good PC to keep a solid 60fps on this game using max settings even at 1080p. An i7 4790k + GTX-970 couldn’t keep at 60fps, and even feel to 30fps in some places.

    Although the Xbone runs at 30fps Digital Foundry’s i3 + 750Ti-OC ( on lower settings than Console ) was dropping to 10fps and couldn’t keep good frame-rates at low settings. Both CPU and the GPU were shown to be not up to the task. This is why DF have been using a more meaty PC when doing faceoffs with Xbone nowadays.

    Using the i7-4790k + GTX-970 at same settings as Xbone seems ok but still cannot hold a solid 60fps in places unless dropping more settings which then allows a solid 60fps….To match Xbones settings and able to keep a solid 30fps you will need something like the i7 4790k + GTX-960

    The PC DF used *i3 + 750 Ti-OC* while running on low settings shown in this screen shoot should show that DF’s budget PC used is no longer suitable for all console game faceoff’s.
