PC gamers are about to get into some raiding.

Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb revealed today that the PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available via Steam and the Windows Store on January 28. Previously, the game was only available on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

This is good news for PC owners who prefer to play on their personal machines, which are often more powerful than modern consoles. The PC version, which is being developed by Crystal Dynamics in conjunction with Nixxes Software, will have exclusive features, including support for 4K resolution.

Rise of the Tomb Raider came out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 last November, and a PlayStation 4 version won’t release until late this year. Lara Croft’s latest action-adventure was also one of GamesBeat’s picks for the best games of 2015.
