    Square Enix has announced details of the UK and Ireland's special editions and pre-order bonuses on offer for Tomb Raider ahead of the game's release in March 2013. There's no less then two special editions up for grabs alongside a "beautifully packaged" standard edition.

    There's the Survival Edition, which comes with a mini art book, a double-sided map of the game's mysterious island and a survival pouch, the soundtrack and DLC weapons, while the Deluxe Collector's Edition comes with all of the aforementioned Survival Edition content and a 6" Lara figurine, packaged in a metal box.

    We've been unable to unearth an image of either edition thus far, but you can read all the details on the editions below and try and picture them in your head. There's also a round of pre-order bonuses to browse below from specific UK retailers like GAME, Tesco, ShopTo and Amazon.
