So do you get the same content in 20 Year Celebration edition of Rise of the Tomb Raider as you do for the standalone plus season pass? Because that way works out £5 cheaper...

Tempted by the dead rising 4 season pass but it does seem a bit strange that none of the dlc has been released for it yet. I only ever buy dlc if it has achs so I think ill wait.
That's what I was thinking. DR4 must be selling really poorly for the season pass to go on sale this early. Honestly though they deserve the poor sales seeing as the game not only launched full of glitches, but continues to be full of them 3 months later.

So I am seeing on Major Nelsons blog the Battlefront season pass is on sale at 50% off but it shows at £23.99, is that the normal price?

So is there any reason to buy the 20 Year Celebration pack for $35 over just buying the game and the season pass for $27.50 together? Is there something extra the pack offers that I'm overlooking?
I have this exact same question, if anyone happens to know the answer.

I just finished the DLC for witcher 3 a couple of weeks ago...it's FANTASTIC. Hearts of stone is really good, Olgierd is a great character. But the Touissant DLC....is ridiculous. It's as big as some games. The world building is incredible. Skellege is great for those who like Gwent. It's just a monumental achievement when taken all together.

I dont know if am missing anything but isnt it cheaper to buy Tomb Raider + season pass and not the bundle? I am NOT one complaining about a rare 75% DLC sale for once, but it seems abit wierd, should at least be the same price...

Anybody keen for Dead Rising 4 Deluxe Edition, check to see the cost to buy the game and Season Pass separately.

In Aussie land, you can save almost $2 if buying separate rather than bundled.

Rise of the Tomb Raider not a great price. 20 year version is £19.99 on PSN store, £15 cheaper.

I know it is going to come across as lazy, but I would find it really helpful if the t.a. ratio of each game was listed in the info where the "unobtainable" achievements get listed

We've tweaked our routines and we're now picking up Season Passes and Game Preview.

I've updated the story.
Then why is it that it still doesn't include the The Witcher 3 expansion pass and both DLCs as separate entries?! laugh not complaining, just saying wink
Boosting achieves/games on my to-do/boost-request list. Interested? Send me a PM on TA/XBL!

The Ultimate Edition of the game is on sale - £15. That gets you all the DLC plus the base game for cheaper than the current price of the Season Pass. I bought it last week just for the DLC. Plenty of people in the lobbies now too.

Man I'm so tempted to get the Mega Man Legacy Collection. Loved those games on the NES but don't know if I can be bothered to play through them again. Got too many 360 and One games to play without adding some NES games into the mix redface
Buckled. Picked it up lol. Only a fiver. Be rude not to.
Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

WTF.

Rise of the TombRaider 20 dollar. But if you live in Europe you pay 35 euro.
According to Google conversion 20 dollar is 18.97 euro.

That is 84% more.

What's your point? Petrol is cheaper in the US. Cars are cheaper in the US. Heck most things are cheaper in the US, but minimum wage is also less.

Anyway, just change your region to US and buy it from there.

Bought Rivals of Aether. They seem to have a decent schedule for this year. The full game is coming out at the end of the month on Steam and should be supposed to hit the Xbox store one month afterwards.

I have this exact same question, if anyone happens to know the answer.
The best answer I can find is from "FAQ - Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration" on the Square Enix forums:
Do current Xbox One and PC season pass holders have to pay for the upgrade?
Current Xbox One and PC season pass holders will automatically receive the “Blood Ties” upgrade for free. Moving forward, the content will be added to the existing season pass for new purchasers. If you do not own the season pass and wish to purchase only the “Blood Ties” upgrade, you can do so for $9.99.
If you look at the list prices, then the 20 year pack is the same as buying the game and season pass separately. The difference here is that the season pass is 75% off compared to only 50% on the game/pack.

Also looking on the Microsoft Store and comparing the contents of the 20 year pack with the game plus season pass, then they both include all the same content.

Might have to treat myself smile Not that I don't have a massive backlog alreadyroll
