Rise of the Tomb Raider Art Book and Play Arts KAI Figure Announced

The Crystal Dynamics team are in San Diego for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and they’ve kicked off the weekend’s festivities by announcing two new collectables Tomb Raider fans may want to add to their collections.

The first is an official art book for Rise of the Tomb Raider, which will be published by Titan Books and will feature hundreds of unreleased pieces of concept art, sketches, character models, and 3D renders as well as developer commentary on the environments, locations, and characters seen in the game.

This hardback book will be available as from 10th November 2015 and will set you back around $40. You can order your copy today over at Amazon or Amazon UK.

The second collectable that was announced this week was a new Play Arts KAI figure. For those of you attending Comic-Con, a prototype of the Rise of the Tomb Raider figure can be found on display alongside other video game figures from Square Enix’s Play Arts KAI range.

No further details have been released so far but we can probably assume that the figure (and possibly even the art book) will be included as part of a special collector’s edition of Rise of the Tomb Raider. But will Crystal Dynamics make an announcements about the collector’s edition at the San Diego Comic-Con or will they be saving it for Gamescom or EGX later this year? I guess we’ll find out within the next few days, so stay tuned.

Don’t forget that Crystal Dynamics and Xbox have a full programme of events lined up for the entire Comic-Con weekend. Details of these events can be found over here and anyone planning on attending the cosplay gathering on Saturday 11th July is strongly advised to RSVP over on the Facebook event page.

Update: The Play Arts Kai figure is now available for pre-order over at Square Enix’s online store.

    1. I think they’d be missing a beat if they don’t sell these items separately, especially since the PC and Playstation fanbase will be missing out on the game this November. I fully expect the Collector’s Edition to include both of these items along with a few extra goodies….like some flares and a bear plushie. 😉
