The PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will soon receive support for multiple eye-tracking features, developer Crystal Dynamics has announced.
Players will be able to become even more engaged in the adventures of Lara Croft after a partnership was struck between global eye tracking company Tobii and Crystal Dynamics to introduce combined head and eye tracking functionality to Rise of the Tomb Raider on Steam.
Working in tandem with traditional PC gaming inputs, Tobii’s unique eye tracking feature uses the player’s eye movements to create new input modality. Pairing eye tracking with mouse and keyboard or gamepad controls gives gamers a richer and more immersive experience as they are able to mimic actions that occur in real life, such as looking for cover or aiming at a target.
“After celebrating twenty years of Tomb Raider throughout the past year, we continue to find new ways to entertain and immerse our players,” said Rich Briggs, global brand director at Crystal Dynamics.
“These new Tobii features take the exploration in Rise of the Tomb Raider to a deeper level with cutting edge technology.”
Tobii has previously partnered with Eidos Montreal and Ubisoft to bring similar features to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Steep and Watch_Dogs 2 in addition to a host of other titles on PC.
