So despite being originally planned for a release this Tuesday in North America, and this Friday in Europe, it seems a lot of gamers have managed to get their hands on Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition a couple of days early.
Square Enix has not said anything about a possible early release date, but a lot of visitors to GameStop's stores across the globe have confirmed that they have managed to pick up Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, despite it the confirmed release date still being days away.
Square Enix's social media profiles have suggested that they still planned for the January 28th release date for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, so it sounds as if GameStop have made a bit of a mess up, or perhaps Square Enix had a deal in place that allowed them to sell the game earlier than the intended release date.
Either way, if you have a GameStop near you, and you're looking into buying Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, you may want to stop by to see if there are any copies available for purchase in-store.
The original Tomb Raider game released last year managed to gain a huge amount of success both critically and sales-wise, so it's no wonder that Square Enix have decided to port the game over to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 so quickly.
Definitive Edition is said to have much more refined graphics, and both consoles will reportedly run the game between an average of 40 to 60FPS.
