Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris PC System Requirements and More

As you all know, last week I met with our Community Manager, Meagan Marie, in New York and brought her a bunch of your questions about the upcoming games Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Since the Rise release is still quite a way off, those will have to wait, but she was able to consult the Temple of Osiris developers for details about that game. She also thanked everyone for their patience as she settles in at Crystal and gets back up to speed.

Several players asked: Will the Gold Edition physical goods be available separately in Europe as they are in the North American Square Enix store? (Apparently Xbox One players can't get the Gold Edition over there.)

We don't currently have any plans to do this. The Gold Edition in Europe will contain the physical elements as well as a disc for the game, either on PS4 or PC, and a code for the season pass.

(If you don't mind paying for overseas shipping, fans outside North America can order the Gold Edition Physical Goods from the North American Square Enix Store. Note that the product description says it includes the season pass. This is not correct. The physical goods package includes the Lara figurine, art book, and map. The game and season pass are available separately. –Stella)

Harry (from The Music of Tomb Raider fansite) asks: Will there be an official soundtrack release for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, as Al Wilmer teased.

No news as of this moment.

Filarwen asks: Will Temple of Osiris support mixed local/online coop so that 4 people play with two computers online with each other?

Yes, the game is drop-in, drop-out co-op, allowing you to play with two people on the couch, and two people online, or any mixture thereof.

And-Ray asks: Will there be any type of CD version for LCTOO?

The Gold Edition in Europe for PC and PS4 will have a disk. In North America, the Gold Edition box contains all of the physical collectibles, and then digital download codes for the game and the season pass are provided separately.

Maël asks: Does the game have some Easter eggs from past games?

We pay tribute to past games through costumes such as the Legend Lara pack. As for Easter eggs, you'll have to wait and see.

Several people asked about the PC system requirements. Meagan has promised to share them in her Friday fan-site update. In the mean time, Steam has posted the following list, which I will amend if necessary tomorrow.
