Releasing in the UK on January 31, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition boasts improved visuals over the previous Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, with the title said to have been "re-built specifically for next gen consoles".

"See Lara Croft like never before," reads Amazon's listing, "with every bead of sweat, strand of hair, and article of clothing delivered in obsessive detail. Endure a stunningly re-imagined island, fraught with new, unforgiving storms, and alive with motion."

Amazon's listing also features two screenshots thought to be of the next-gen version.

As well as enhanced graphics, the Definitive Edition also contains all previously-released DLC, including the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer, six outfits for Lara, a digital mini art book, and the digital comic The Beginning.

Amazon currently lists the game for $59.99 (£36.70). A UK price and release date have yet to be announced.

More details on Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition are expected to be unveiled during this evening's VGX awards.

The Definitive Edition precedes a next-gen Tomb Raider sequel currently in development at Crystal Dynamics.

Um.... This game was rubbish! If you should re-release a game it should be a good one at least, like Skyrim, Borderlands or The Witcher 2, something with legs!

It felt like a better Uncharted, which isn't saying much for it considering I thought Uncharted was a bunch of balls. Still I know this games looks mega lovely. Still don't get why they're doing this, I guess they're jumping on the "look no games on this" console market and people will buy it.

I played this the other day until Lara is captured for the second time.

There were moments I thought it was getting fun but then it turned back into a slugfest.

The aesthetics and some of the open area's are nice though

there was about 5 tombs in that game.... and each tomb consisted of a corridor (purely to give the game chance to load) and a single room with a single puzzle. brilliant game, very much enjoyed it, but NOT a tomb raider game.

always had that wonderful feeling of accomplishment after figuring out what the hell i had to do, or where i had to go, or what set or traps i needed to get past to continue the story with old, *Proper*, tomb-raider games. :(
