Default Rise Of The Tomb Raider


Quote:

A site claiming to have a mole inside Eidos has published pictures purportedly of concept art and other collateral for a Tomb Raider reboot sequel, which figures to be both open-world and survival horror.

It's hardly shocking that Eidos - bought out by sequelmeisters Square Enix of course - would be planning another Tomb Raider. Existing IP is a big chunk of a studio's value as an acquisition target, and Eidos' Ian Livingstone even said to expect a Lara Croft reboot a couple months ago. Still, this is someone else's rumor and someone else's photos. We've emailed Eidos PR if they want to take a swing at this rumor, first reported today by 4Player Co-Op.

In the shots (which you may see here) you can see a mounted Lara (on horseback, stupe) firing arrows at zombiefied creatures with gnarly, ouchy-looking appendages. The concepts for her foes are barely more than silhouettes, but they all look ugly and threatening, Lara herself has a look that backs off the overt sex appeal and makes her into a more athletic, ass-kicky fighter.

I've never been too into the tomb raider series. The only one I've played was 2 and I hated the controls I been turned off from the series all this time. Like that they're stepping away from the fan-serviceness of her design.

To be fair, the series hasn't controlled like that since Crystal Dynamics took over.

I figures SquareEnix Europe would be working on a new Tomb Raider, and I actually like her design a hell of a lot more.

I do, too. I dunno about this survival horror noise, but I'm actually interested to see what they change.

They've "rebooted" this franchises twice already right?

All I ever did in these games was use shitty weapons on purpose, and swan dive off of cliffs at certain angles to make a good corpse.

I've only played part of Tomb Raider: Legend, but I liked what I had played at the time. Before that, I only played demos of a few of the games.

Legend was pretty damn good, though it was the only of the newer ones I've played. To be absolutely honest, I've only played that and the very, very first one.

I have Tomb Raider: Anniversary that I got from a Steam sale a while back. I haven't actually played it. Probably should sometime soon.

The tigers in the first one scared the shit out of me as a kid.

So basically all I did was lock the butler in the freezer

Oh maaaaan, this is the most I've cared about a Tomb Raider game ever. I can't wait to play this.

I bet that guy who didn't fall in the ocean would make a hell of a tomb raider.

I was already looking forward to this one, but that trailer makes me want it right now. If they keep the entire game that cinematic, I'll be happy.

I've noticed that a lot of the new games in franchises that Square Enix has picked up through its acquisition of Eidos are that way. The new Deus Ex, the new Hitman, both the last and new Batman games, this. They're throwing a lot of money into making them bigger productions than they'd probably be otherwise. Just so long as the games are also fun, I think it's great.

This is one of the best things to be shown at E3 so far.

I'm still not sure I've caught a release date anywhere. Is this even coming out this year? 'Cause if so, I've got yet another game to budget for.

I still wince when I go back to watch the demo being played and see her fall on the piece of rebar.

Also, found this neat (from the text wall I linked to earlier):

The results are amazing.
