Feral Interactive has announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will be making its way to Mac sometime this spring.

The critically acclaimed title stars everyone’s favorite tomb-raiding adventurer Lara Croft, now with slightly more realistic proportions. It was originally released for Xbox in late 2015, while the 20 Year Celebration special edition landed on PlayStation 4 in October 2016.

Check out its spectacular trailer below.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration is the first sequel to the 2013 series reboot Tomb Raider. The game follows Lara as she travels to Siberia in search of the legendary city of Kitezh, whilst battling a paramilitary organization called “the Trinity.”

The special edition includes two extra standalone stories, a two player co-operative endurance mode, classic costumes from previous games in the Tomb Raider series, and more. (See below for more details.)

No Mac system requirements, pricing, or launch date have been announced yet — but the game will be here sometime this spring. If you’re a fan of the franchise, this is certainly a title that’s well worth picking up once it becomes available.

Added extras for the twentieth anniversary:

Blood Ties: A standalone story in which Lara uncovers family secrets as she explores her childhood home, Croft Manor.
Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch: An adventure in which Lara seeks the truth behind a mythic terror lurking within a new region of Siberia, the Wicked Vale.
Cold Darkness Awakened: When a biological weapon is unleashed in the Siberian wilderness, Lara is tasked with ending a viral outbreak as she fights off waves of infected adversaries.
Lara’s Nightmare: As undead hordes infiltrate Croft Manor, Lara must become the ultimate zombie slayer.
Endurance Mode: Two players team up to survive the dangerous forest while plundering crypts for relics.
Extreme Survivor Challenge: In the hardest difficulty setting for the main campaign, players overcome difficult limits of save points, resources, ammunition, and health.
5 Classic Skins: Nostalgic skins from Tomb Raider history: Croft Manor, Tomb Raider II, Tomb Raider II Bomber Jacket, Chronicles Catsuit, and Angel of Darkness.
12 Outfits: Ancient Vanguard (Byzantine-era chain mail), Apex Predator (bear fur, animal claws, and warpaint), Shadowrunner (tactical vest and watch cap), and the reimagined Antarctica outfit inspired by Tomb Raider III.
Expedition Cards: Players use cards in Expedition Mode to boost their score, modify their abilities, and apply cosmetic effects like Big Head Enemies.
