Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition targets 30fps, but PS4 may go beyond

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition comparison video shows off next-gen graphics

Tomb Raider was already a mighty pretty game when it launched last year on last-gen consoles. But, how does the Definitive Edition fare on PS4 and Xbox One? Will the generation jump really affect the visuals in a noticeable way?

You can judge for yourself in a new comparison video released by IGN. On one hand, it's impressive to see how well the last-gen version fares. On the other hand, some of the updated lighting effects sure do look pretty.
