Square Enix has announced Survival and Collector's editions of Tomb Raider, while revealing pre-order incentives being offered by key retail partners in the UK and Ireland.


Releasing alongside the standard version, the Survival edition will contain the game, a mini art book compiled by art director Brian Horton, a double sided map of the title's island setting, a protective pouch, an access code to the soundtrack and a DLC weapon pack.
