Crystal Dynamics has put together a new gameplay video for Rise of the Tomb Raider. The latest footage highlights Lara’s less-lethal side, as she makes her way around an armed gang by sticking to the shadows and utilizing distractions. Nearly five minutes of play and not a single arrow to the neck? I didn’t know such a level of restraint existed.
Microsoft has rolled out a new trailer for Rise of the Tomb Raider. Crystal Dynamics is returning to the world of tombs and the raiding thereof as Lara Croft sets off on a global treasure hunt. The video runs a minute and forty-five seconds and finds Lara following in the steps of famed arctic explorers in search of the past. For those wanting to see more, you won’t have to wait long, as the teaser ends that more will be revealed in a few weeks at this year’s E3.
Lara Croft returns today in a new isometric adventure for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. The sequel to Guardian of Light follows in its predecessor’s footsteps with more traps to avoid, puzzles to solve, and twin-stick shooting, arcade-style combat. Now with support for up to four players, the game follows Lara and three allies as she searches for powerful artifacts and battles Set’s army of monsters alongside treasure hunter Carter Bell and gods Horus and Isis.
Last year’s Tomb Raider reboot is getting a next-gen makeover soon with the upcoming release of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for PS3 and Xbox One. To kick things off, Square Enix has posted a new launch trailer to demonstrate the action in store. In addition to the enhanced graphics, which will feature new effects, additional polygons, Tress FX technology for realistic hair, new textures, and new rendering techniques, the game will also include all available downloadable content plus developer videos, a digital art book, and a digital copy of the Dark Horse comic.
A new map pack has launched for Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider reboot, the Shipwrecked Map Pack. Available for 360, PC, and PS3, the 320 MS Point/$3.99 set includes two new levels for multiplayer, Himiko’s Cradle and Lost Fleet. The maps, detailed below, are available on Live, PSN, and Steam.
A new downloadable map pack has been announced for Tomb Raider. Just as players begin to wrap up the multiplayer component, they will be able to snag the Caves and Cliffs Multiplayer Map Pack. The three-map drop will be available on Live on March 19, and at an unspecified later date for PC and PS3. All maps will be playable in every multiplayer mode, with the Endurance’s survivors battling the Scavengers in caverns, a shantytown, and a village engulfed in flames.
Grab your cargo pants and your spaghetti strap tee—it’s time to start raiding some tombs. Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider reboot, aptly titled Tomb Raider, is now available for 360, PC, and PS3. The single-player campaign features everything you have come to expect from a Lara Croft adventure, an array of weaponry, including bows and arrows and pistols, iffy zip lines, dangerous fauna, grave-robbing red shirts to take down, and a deadly ancient curse—what? No curse? There’s also a separate multiplayer campaign, courtesy of Eidos Montreal.
Square Enix has released the last of the Tomb Raider making-of videos, The Final Hours of Tomb Raider, titled The End of the Beginning (Part 2). The final installment follows the latter days of development, from working on multiplayer with Eidos Montreal to fine-tuning the single-player campaign, and wraps with a discussion between host Zachary Levi and senior Crystal Dynamic staff.
Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider reboot is a few weeks away, and today PC gamers will get to see if their system is up to Lara’s latest adventure. Some of the highlights for the Nixxes-developed PC version include Steamworks integration, higher-quality shadows, and support for Steam Big Picture Mode, AMD HD3D and AMD Eyefinity, gamepads, and Windows XP.
