New Rise of the Tomb Raider Gameplay Surfaces

Rise-of-The-Tomb-Raider

Crystal Dynamics has dropped a brand new gameplay video for their Tomb Raider sequel. The video picks up where the E3 gameplay left off and we find Lara trekking through the snowy wilderness of Siberia.

Lara has new ways of dispatching bad guys, from stealthy bow kills involving poison arrows, to the ever popular “death from above” stealth kill. The crafting system introduced in the 2013 reboot makes a return as we see Lara craft herself the aforementioned poison arrows. Ms Croft doesn’t just have to contend with humans in the wild but highly dangerous animals as well, including a very big, very pissed off Bear.

How will Lara overcome this ferocious beasts? You’ll have to watch to find out.

 

Rise of the Tomb Raider launches on November 10, 2015 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It is a timed exclusive.

Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals Review

TR Immortals

Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals by bestselling British novelist and comic book writer, Dan Abnett and Nik Vincent, is a novel continuing Lara Croft’s adventure and takes place between the events on Yamatai in the Tomb Raider reboot and the next to be released game title. This tale is considered cannon and acknowledge as such by developer Crystal Dynamics.

The story starts off with Lara being thrown into a panic attack by the startling and loud backfire of a neighbor’s car engine. As she takes to the streets of London, for a therapeutic walk to soothe her nerves, she receives a call informing her that Sam (best friend, roommate and designated damsel in distress), has been admitted into a hospital. Upon her arrival, Lara discovers her friend is in a coma suspected to be induced by a drug overdose.  However, having both recently survived supernatural events, Lara has her own suspicions about the cause of Sam’s condition. Therein, begins the quest to find an artifact of legend with healing capabilities able to restore her friend to health.

Lara travels to several locations around Europe in search of information and leads, meeting with professors, antique collectors and shady business men with auras of danger. In her pursuit of the relic, she finds there are others who would kill without hesitation to gain possession of it and Lara must fight for her life in order to save Sam’s. Savvy as she is, Lara is able to gain the trust and employ the help of hastily made acquaintances, using their skills and knowledge to advance her progress or escape danger as necessary.

TR

Story line aside, the delivery left more to be desired. Everything was over simplified, there were no puzzles or need for in depth thinking, answers were basically thrown at her and the vocabulary and descriptions were basic. The action scenes were fun, but the majority of the down time was spent giving trivial descriptions of Lara navigating city streets and public transportation; if only to display her observation skills and paranoia, to then watch them fail her miserably on more than one occasion. Having seen and experienced the trials of Yamatai alongside reboot Lara, there are certain things she should definitely be able to handle. Not so, in this novel. It’s as if she’s starting over in skill level. Retaining the memory of her previous adventure, but none of the character development.

Final Verdict:

I will not claim to not have enjoyed the book at all, but my expectations for a Tomb Raider title were not met and often times I found myself bored and actually making an effort to continue reading. I would recommend this novel to a younger audience, not formally acquainted to classic Lara or reboot Lara for that matter. Large font, basic vocabulary and simple writing earned this novel a 7.2 rating.

Overall Score: 7.2/10

RGN Rating: Bronze Novel

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Announced for Next-Gen Platforms, Details and Gameplay Within

Lara

Square Enix recently announced the sequel to the award winning Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light from developer, Crystal Dynamics. Scot Amos, Executive Producer for Crystal Dynamics offers up some details on the game set for a PS4, Xbox One and PC.

“The story takes place in the forsaken Temple of Osiris, long hidden, deep in the deserts of Egypt. Lara Croft arrives at the mysterious temple, only to discover her new rival, Carter Bell, is also seeking the legendary Staff of Osiris – an instrument of power over life and death. When Carter removes the mythical Staff from its resting place he triggers a trap that curses them both and unleashes the evil god Set, brother to Osiris, and usurper of his kingdom. However, the reclaimed staff also awakens the gods Horus and Isis, the son and wife of Osiris. Free from their ancient prison, these gods offer to repay Lara and Carter by joining forces in order to remove their curse and stop Set. You’ll play as Lara, Carter, Isis, or Horus as you fight your way across lethal sands and through deadly tombs battling to resurrect Osiris and fulfill his prophecy by defeating Set.”

While its predecessor featured 2 player cooperative play, Temple of Osiris will include 4 player co-op for the very first time in a Lara Croft title.

“This is a unique opportunity to cooperate with or compete against your friends in drop-in and drop-out co-op to earn bigger rewards, better treasures, and more powerful artifacts to boost your character. But how you play is up to you. Will you share the wealth, or will you sacrifice your friends for more loot and a higher score? The entire campaign is multiplayer and single-player since we know lots of fans will want to tackle Lara’s all-new adventure solo,” Amos explains.

Peep the announcement trailer and gameplay footage below.
