Originally announced earlier in July, Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration re-release will see the first look at its VR content debuting at PAX West next week. VRFocus has spotted a panel and a live demo event that have both gone live in the schedule, featuring Rise of the Tomb Raider’s development team.

The panel is simply titled “Developing Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration”, and features creative director Noah Hughes, senior designer Chad Armstrong, designer Alisha Thayer, and senior community manager Meagan Marie.

Exploring Croft Manor will be done in a new story chapter added to the game’s re-release, called “Blood Ties”. As the original announcement describes:

“The Manor also offered a great opportunity for us to investigate the possibilities with cutting edge VR technology. So for the first time in franchise history, you’ll be able to play “Blood Ties” in first-person through Lara’s eyes!”
