Tomb Raider info comes stumbling out of GI

Tuesday, 7 December 2010 05:55 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Didn’t take long, did it?

GAF’s carrying the first info of the Tomb Raider reboot from Square Enix, announced yesterday, that’s in the latest issue of Game Informer.

But this ain’t going to be your standard reboot, by the looks of it. The entire Tomb Raider brand, not just the franchise, will be getting the entire redeux treatment, according to the mag.

The game is a prequel to the entire Tomb Raider story, where we see a 21 year old Lara Croft stranded on an island following a shipwreck. GI’s already said we’re going to see Croft “endure both physical and emotional trauma to survive.”

The targeting system from past games has also hit the bin, with developer Crystal Dynamics now implementing a free-aim system.

Tomb Raider will see the inclusion of base camps. Here, you’ll combine items and get access to a skill system that will allow you to upgrade Lara’s abillities.

If you had the thought of survival horror in your mind about the game, you’re half-right: you’ll need to collect food and water to survive on the island.

“I think that the major difference between this game and the old is the concept of smoke and mirrors,” said Crystal Dynamics boss, Darrell Gallagher.

“There was an illusion of freedom because of streaming and loading that would pop you out in a different location, but this is absolutely real. You can literally go any direction that you see and carve your own way to the finish line instead of being guide.”

“It was important in the game to not only deliver the character arc of Lara Croft emotionally, but to deliver it in gameplay as well so the player gets to grow into a hardened survivor,” added director, Noah Hughes.

And there you have it. There’s more here.

Square didn’t announce a release timeline or platforms yesterday, but the game’s official website confirms it’ll release on PS3, 360 and PC.

    Sounds like more of her trying to survive on an island than any actual “tomb raiding”. There’s no mention of her searching through ancient place for mystical artifact or anything of
    that sort.

    Still, Tomb Raider was in desperate of a reboot and the mechanics and the game sound excellent. Can’t wait for it.

    Nice to see them making her look like an actual, real woman, instead of a cipherous “sex symbol”. Old school Lara was always an embarrassment.

  5. freedoms_stain

    Oh, I think they’ve still gone for Sex Symbol, but this time they’ve went for an Evangeline Lily type (popular with the lads now) rather than the plastic chested, tiny waisted bimbos who were all the rage in the 90′s, but not so much now.

    Intriguing. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was excellent, so I’m hopeful that with a full restart they can do something special. Fingers crossed!

    Well they have Uncharted to compete with now so they really do need to pull out all the stops with this in order to make it successful.

    @9 Things they should compete Uncharted series with are the production values and the narrative.Nothing else.

    Although to some people Uncharted has cheesy dialogues and cliche story at least it combines narrative with gameplay quite well.

    In most TR games,narrative was almost non existent and the endings(too short) left many gamers disappointed.
    TR is one of my favourite series i prefer them much more than Uncharted but to me they kind of fall short story wise

    #11 4 years ago
  12. theevilaires

    @9 so true. Tomb Raider needed a reboot yes but it just doesn’t feel right in the middle of the gen. There would have been so much better hype and sales I think if the would have waited next gen. Its not every moron is going to put down CoD for this. We could have afforded to wait is what im saying.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. Psychotech

    @12 that makes sense.If they wanted to make Lara truly an icon like she was in the mid 90′s they should have kept this as a launch title for the next gaming generation

    #13 4 years ago
  14. OrbitMonkey

    @10 No they need to sell it to ps3 owners who already have Uncharted2 & 3 on its way.
    @12 Yes, but can SquareEnix wait till next gen? I’d say their really desperate for a big hitter at the mo.

    Launch titles are notoriously wonky, though. Better for them to do it now when they’re at their most savvy with the tech and worry more about the game and less about what hardware-madness Uncle Sony’s decided to foist on them this week. :-)

    #15 4 years ago
  16. Aimless

    The game stands a better chance of selling on the current generation of hardware than it would launching alongside a new one.

    Both the PS3 and 360 have healthy userbases — around 90 million machines between them — whereas at the launch of new, expensive hardware you’d be lucky to be looking at a potential market of 2 or 3 million. The attach rate might have been better as a launch title but there’s no reason the game can’t sell 6 million copies or more on the current consoles if marketed correctly.

    #16 4 years ago
  17. Psychotech

    i believe it’s a double edged sword in this case.Releasing it this gen will insure more sales although nothing major and there’s a chance it may fall short on it’s own or overshadowed by other IP’s

    Releasing it next gen would be tough for them get acquainted with the new hardware,will insure less sales but it will more in the long run with the continuation of this reboot and then there’s a higher chance Lara may be an icon once more,although i doubt she will be as much as she was in 90′s

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Quiiick

    Sure, you can’t repeat the success that “Tomb Raider” enjoyed in the 90′s. But is this even possible?

    I’m hoping for a game which has the production values of Uncharted and even better storytelling. Fingers crossed.

    #18 4 years ago
  19. theevilaires

    Blerk and Aimless both make great points. I understand and accept that logic but wasn’t there just a Tomb Raider released recently. The series is really starting to spread itself too thin, but yea Blerk is right. I rather have a game with less bugs than better next gen graphics anyday. Gameplay is ultimately what counts at the end of the day. So crystal dynamics you guys have my full blessing and support. Make this game badass please and make Naughty Dog sweat a little :)

    The last proper Tomb Raider was Underworld, two years ago. Guardian of Light was out earlier this year, but that’s really a completely different game altogether. And kind of awesome, if you haven’t already played it.

    I feel like this game would’ve been better had it come out of Eidos Montreal as opposed to Crystal Dynamics.

    I’m sure the gameplay will be better, but the biggest problem of the TR franchise is they always tell one convoluted story after another and lost direction ages ago. It’s still too early to say anything but I do believe the gameplay for this will be fine, story probably laughable (even the downloadable game had a forgettable story). It all depends on where they focus.
    Regardless Lara does currently look Squeenified, and it wouldn’t be surprising if we saw Lightning and Aya Brea costumes as dlc or unlockables.

    @ theevilaires

    “Gameplay is ultimately what counts at the end of the day.”

    No! Gameplay is important, very important, but what “ultimately counts” is a well balanced mixture of great gameplay, well written narrative and gorgeous graphics (technically & artistically).

    since the days of Sonic Adventure and Halo, there has never ever been an AAA launch title, practically all of those games are patchy and rushed. the exact opposite of what TR franchise needs atm. the trouble isn’t Lara Croft, she ‘s as much of a popular gaming icon as in the past, it would take decades of consoles with no TR games on them to make her less relevant. it’s the Eidos sales expectations and unfinished titles like Underworld.

    and, the devs of Uncharted played it safe for the whole game, it’s easy to make a quality product when you’re that unambitious. especially when you aren’t going for the multiplayer audience. it’s like a quality McDonalds.

    oh, and whether a mix of gameplay and narrative or purely gameplay is what counts depends on whether you’re aiming for one audience or another, it’s not that shallow. the likes of SMG or Bayonetta are good examples of gameplay being the be all and end all for a videogame.

    #26 4 years ago
  27. OrbitMonkey

    @26 The Wii 3 AAA launch titles. Resi4, twilight princess & Wii sports. Do not see your point about Uncharted at all. 1) It has a good multiplayer aspect. 2) Unambitious? A great script, great characters, great gameplay is unambitious? Please tell me what games meet your lofty ideal? I’m betting Its a small list.

    #27 4 years ago
  28. DaMan

    Resi4 was a port from a previous gen console, they didn’t have to design either gameplay or anything from scratch. TP and Wii Sports though yes, I forgot about those, but then again, the transition from GCN to Wii wasn’t as hard as with the other two consoles.

    you misunderstood me, I meant when you’re doing the multiplayer centered games like CoD, BF or Halo. people won’t easily migrate from those to your newcomer title. unambitious is a very fitting word, yes. the game is a quality mundane entertaining experience. I don’t see how that’s a bad thing. like I said it’s what it is, a quality Britney Spears or McDonalds of games market. what ‘re you asking, the examples of opposite? games that ‘re refreshing, the ones that try to redefine and raise the bar for gameplay or narratives in this case. Ico, Resi 4, Bayonetta, LBP, Chrono Trigger, Silent Hill, Half Life, Final fantasy XII, Ninja Gaiden (2004), Thief, Vagrant Story, GTA 3 & 4. there’s quite a long list actually, and either way the ones that do that at least partially.

    ^ Uncharted 2 is definatly up there with those games you listed, Edge in thier review said its the same experience as the first time you play Resi Evil 4, Eurogamer compared it to Half life 2, definatly a masterpiece. It won every goty award going, for its gameplay etc if it was the “Mcdonalds of gaming” as you say it would win nothing.

    #30 4 years ago
  31. DaMan

    enough with the misquoting and selective citing of game journos, Hindle. go and check out Game Critics’ review of the game. it’s funny how people use selective quotes and various sentences taken in isolation and out of context to justify their points.

    here i quote Edge’s review:

    ‘ … the promise of the next expertly choreographed set-piece, the next eye-poppingly realised environment, the next story-twisting encounter between characters, that makes Uncharted 2 the most absorbing game of 2009 to date, the sort that makes three hours of play feel like one. You know when you leave the cinema with friends after you’ve just enjoyed a Pulp Fiction or a District 9, and you can’t wait to discuss the experience? You’ll get that feeling playing through Uncharted 2, just as you did playing through, say, Resident Evil 4. … ‘

    they’re talking about visuals and the way levels were designed, making the game very immersive. technical accomplishments and visual arts that is. only an idiot would deny that the game raised the bar for current gen consoles so high it’s unbelievable. they’re also talking about experience being hugely cinematic and the pace of the game. it’s very entertaining, if you’re into this type of experience.

    the awards were for quality. the game brought nothing to the action adventure or tps genre, and it upped nothing either.

    theevilarse: you’re so asinine, tasteless, and predictable it’s unbelievable. at least when you try making people look bad, don’t be so ironic. it’s like with the guy linking to your Bungie.net account or something, a couple of weeks before you were making fun of Mushroom or someone paying online, then you rant about people using dirty tactics. moron.

    The game is a masterpiece, hardly the Mcdonalds of gaming anyway, bit of a retarded comment really.

    #32 4 years ago
  33. DaMan

    fair enough, I might’ve exaggerated slightly, and you’re right with the ‘masterpiece’ (in a way) name. but the games I mentioned are in a different league, they either gave birth to a whole genre/sub genre or totally changed the course of gaming/genre history.

    #33 4 years ago
  34. The Hindle

    Bayonetta is to DMC as UC 2 is to Resi Evil 4, a perfection of the genre hence why i would put UC 2 on that list.

    #35 4 years ago
  36. DaMan

    @TH Uc 2 and Resi4 aren’t in the same genre. Uc2 is a traditional tps with an added popular these days cover mechanic. Bayonetta was refreshing even more than it was redefining or perfecting (it did everything). they’re different.

    #36 4 years ago
  37. OrbitMonkey

    @34 We are going to have to agree to disagree. Period. Uncharted 2 is now the game ALL 3rd person adventure games will be compared to, untill Uncharted 3 raises the bar once again. Oh and kudos for the back handed compliment “experience being hugely cinematic and the pace of the game. it’s very entertaining, if you’re into this type of experience”. I mean yeah, what idiot likes that eh? *rolls eyes*

    #37 4 years ago
  38. The Hindle

    Anyway back on topic , after reading those scans this sounds promising, they seem to be focusing on scripted elements as well. It sounds like Lost meets MGS 3 with Uncharted style scripted events so far and a bit of Metroid Prime from the sounds of it.

    #38 4 years ago
  39. DaMan

    @37 again, you miss the point. they will compare the quality of the same formula, the game didn’t change anything and didn’t sell enough either.

    also, I’m glad you believe in them. don’t see why you had to say that actually. people believed in GT5 too, it’s too bad it turned out a not so well reviewed one.

    also, what ‘s with the bollocks reaction to ‘if you’re into that stuff’?? people have different tastes. funny really. what if someone dislikes multiplayer fps? what if I dislike Transformers? I didn’t imply that you’re an idiot for enjoying that, I meant it’s not a universal improvement on the genre. newsflash: people dislike cinematic games, and even more so mundane cinematic games.

  40. The Hindle

    ^ The game sold 4m copies on one console, in comparison Underworld struggled to sell 2.6m on 5 consoles, if you think 4m isnt enough then wow imo. Its probably still sells well to this day, and the game isnt mundane unless thats your opinion of course then thats fine, and yea all 3rd person action games from now will be compared to UC even when its stupid to do so.

    #40 4 years ago
  41. DaMan

    hahaha. it’s funny how every fucking Gears and TR thread has these dumbass fanboy comments. says a lot about their insecurity. seriously, look wtf?

    like I said before, if anything, first party exclusives tend to sell more than third party releases. you’re so insecure, TH you had to bring up the game you believe is one of my favorites. try harder.. -_-

    Underworld was a half finished game in a completely different single player only sub genre. it sold about a milion ( about 700k actually) per each of the HD consoles. other versions were released later, and most of them did very poorly, especially the terribly optimized PS2 one or the one on a dead NGage. it is pathetic how desperate and insecure some persons are, they even bring up random numbers without ever doing any research.

    #41 4 years ago
  42. DaMan

    yes, I also believe Transformers is mundane. sorry, i don’t dig the same emotional melodramas as yourself. funny, how you had the need to assert the ‘opinion’ part when it’s a matter of taste anyway..

    well, okay then. sorry, I meant it didn’t do the numbers of say, MGS 4. not to mention something >5 million. the numbers that show redefinitions of popular choices.

    and, TH about the second part – I dislike certain games, Sony just happen to have almost all of them at once this gen. unlike MS who only have the dreadful AW. although, as you could see it doesn’t prevent me from praising say, LBP, and mentioning it in a very positive way.

    @44

    …You are aware that your first post in this is an instant attack on UC2, right? A game you know alot of people like and will react to. Flame bait anyone?
    Unless you were using another user name before, i fail to see where you were discussing the topic “in a perfectly fine manner”. By the looks of it this being derailed is entirely because of you, from post 26 and down this stopped being about Tomb Raider.

    @47 that’s bollocks. my first post here was a reply to a side discussion of Uncharted, which started at around the very first comments. if ‘attack’ is how you would describe that, it’s quite unfortunate. I was discussing.

    thumbs up for completely neglecting all those ‘but but Uncharted’ ones above mine. it’s funny how giving one’s view on that game in an already started discussion is considered ‘attacking’, while bringing it up in the first place isn’t. I know, the toys are expensive, but still let’s be fair at least.

    ^ None of the Uncharted comments before yours were belittling TR in anyway, a part form maybe comment 9, if you’re really touchy (which you apparently are). After that it was pretty much agreed on that TR should only compete with UC2 in production values and the narrative because those were the previous games weak points.

    Its pretty sad that the mere mention of Uncharted gets you in such a frenzy no matter what the context is.

    You clearly were baiting people with your Uncharted comments, DaMan. What you said had nothing to do with the context within which the game was being discussed, you just couldn’t miss the opportunity to play contrarian.

    If you genuinely want to discuss things you need to stop bullying people; be under no illusion that you are better than any of the people that rise to your comments.

    Back on topic, I hope not too much emphasise is placed on hunting for food. Playing Fallout New Vegas on Hardcore/irritating mode was a chore tbh, got in the way of the exploration. The best part of a open world game imo.
    P.s. Uncharted is fantastic & I don’t care what you say DaMan *blows raspberry* :D

  52. DaMan

    Gekidami – I wasn’t belittling, it was a part of a paragraph in my post. apparently you’re so ‘not touchy’ that you’ve missed everything but the Mcdonalds remark. at most it was criticizing. an irrelevant game was brought up, I gave my view on it. it’s all the same as labeling OlderGamer as anti-japanese, or portraying him as the one ‘wanting all games to become ‘mindless shooters’ ‘.

    Aimless- yes yes, i was so much bullying them, it’s especially noticeable when i went as far as apologizing with TH. stand strong, soldiers. there were countless threads about that game, I didn’t even read them.

    You try to browbeat people into not challenging your remarks. Your comments are repeatedly domineering in tone. You might not be stealing people’s lunch money but you are a bully, any casual observer would be able to identify you as such.

    Similarly you aren’t fooling anyone by playing the victim. You deliberately incite other users then repeatedly insult them in the name of self defence. If you were truly so superior you would have no need to belittle other people, your points would stand on their own merits.

    Perhaps you aren’t even aware that you’re doing the above, in which case consider this a free dose of objectivity.

    #53 4 years ago
  54. DaMan

    I did that to certain people, which i believe did warrant everything i’ve said. and my tone depends on how others start the conversation as well. yes, I talk differently to different folks. I’m well aware of what I’m doing.

    I’ve never ever played the victim, I said it wasn’t me who bring the irrelevant topics.

    spot on guys,don’t waste your breath though :)

    On a different note,it’s very pathetic when someone mentions others as an example notheless different from their situation just so to get their support

    #55 4 years ago
  56. DaMan

    how surprising, a negative comment rom that one.

    you found two guys who agree with you. they also happen to like Uncharted.

    it’s like arguing with a wall. but I’ll say this: you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that my reaction here is related to yesterday’s thread…

    also, unless you’re zoopdeloop (which i doubt, but that would be the only explanation) or something, I don’t see how you know what i was referring to, Psychotech.

    #56 4 years ago
  57. Psychotech

    You must be very upset then.Get over it.New day,another thread.

    It’s more like arguing with people you can’t keep up with ,”superior” guy

    I’ve been here a long time,way before i decided to participate.

    #57 4 years ago
  58. DaMan

    you’re showing a two-face. you never ever reacted to users, who were actualy trolling yesterday. you also only react to anti-PS3 posts, if anything.

    so not zoopdelopp then? what are you talking about then? I was referring to people being selective, reacting to certain parts of posts. I might have a different personality, but the point is the same.

    keep banging on.. not upset, just an obvious thing. I’m posting cause it’s entertaining, it’s you who ‘re upset, for the simple fact that you only show up at these moments in time.

    #58 4 years ago
  59. Psychotech

    “it’s like arguing with a wall. but I’ll say this: you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that my reaction here is related to yesterday’s thread…”

    proof who is upset even if you’re gonna say not with me personally.
    I only happen to react to anti-ps3 posts since most stealth elitist trolls here happen to be 360 fanboys trashing the other “turf” and i’m ashamed being one.(360 fanboy to some extent)

    First i was Shatner,now Zoopdeloop, who am i gonna be next?

    if you find posting is so much entertaining then you should go out once in a while in the real world and see the difference.
    I believe i showed up to comment on the article then i saw this whole mess and i gave these guys my advice(although they know already)
    Do you have anything to say about the article?

    #59 4 years ago
  60. DaMan

    …. look, how old are you, Psychotech? that isn’t proof, that’s you going as far as trying to tell me what I think..

    you’re being imaginative. what I said is that clearly I do perceive this thread as a continuation of yesterday’s one. thanks for the classic ‘go outside’ one, if you knew where I’m writing from you would’t try that one though.

    two-face. you said the same about PT, he didn’t react. you ‘ve called Gadzooks a long time xbox troll, he ignored you. I told you, there was this guy here, Shatner. he did the same. post some ‘inappropriate’ stuff about Sony, here they’re. he also enjoyed the ‘stealth troll’ too.

    anyway, i’ll explain something. here’s what ‘s happened:
    a couple of months ago i ‘ve commented on your silly ‘devs choose comfort’ post, you labeled me a ‘fanboy’, to which i replied with an ‘angsty consumer’. that crap has offended you so hard, that since, you’ve started trolling me personally. these three threads in the last month is the result of that. upset, insecure crybaby, perhaps it isn’t me who should go outside.

    you pathetic two-face.

    edit: I was referring to your ‘other situations’ part. unless you’re one of the previous posters, you have no idea what i was talking about. that’s why i mentioned that user.

    Big kudos to CD for wanting to really change Tomb Raider. They could have made a TR game similar to Underworld with just a few changes and fans would eat it up, i probably would to.

    But by the look of it, this is gonna be a big change. Much more adult and serious it seems to. Man i can’t wait to see more of this. Please screens SOON!!!!!!

    EDIT

    Thanks Aimless for the shots. Is that ingame? wow!!!

    #61 4 years ago
  62. Psychotech

    I didn’t say the same to these guys,not the same things as you.As i didn’t debate personaly with some them.But at least some of these guys you mentioned have some brains and perception.Do not try to get their support by bringing them up.

    I believe i made it clear here that this account is being used by more than 1 person.So anything else you say about every previous encounter with this nickname is irrelevant.

    This thread is a continuation of yesterday’s but you keep going trashing another franchise just to spur a flame in here.
    I gotta say especially comment 53 is spot on.

    For once more anything else to contribute to this TR thread?

    #62 4 years ago

    @61 You mean real time gameplay footage SOON!!! :)

  64. DaMan

    ‘brains and perception’ great way to express yourself. seriously..

    that’s what I said. two-face. the whole reason is you being offended so hard back then, you still can’t recover.

    …….
    ….
    ..WHAT??what are you talking about? multiple people on the same account, lol? no you didn’t tell me that up until now. scratch the above then.

    i ‘ve contributed plenty already, more than one of those folks using your account could ever think about. I didn’t trash anything, I criticized. that’s the difference, unless you overreact.

    already replied to ‘post no 53′. looks like someone different than you has been having beef with me then.

    #64 4 years ago
  65. Psychotech

    Can’t recover?.As i said to you you’re not DaMan,not superior to any of all the users here including me

    I wasn’t offended,I made it perfectly clear that i know you personally and we kind of share other real life quarrels,which will be solved very soon.

    looks like many others have a “beef” with your attitude besides Aimless.Do the math.Aside from the ones that don’t want to waste their breath on you.

    You must be very selective of what you read then.I’ve said it to you in one of our previous debates.

    If you’re done contributing about today’s thread off you go then.

    #65 4 years ago
  66. DaMan

    ‘I made it perfectly clear that i know you personally and we kind of share other real life quarrels,which will be solved very soon. ‘

  67. DaMan

    not many have beef with me though. it’s the ones that everyone has with , plus a random guy here and there. ‘Aimless’ just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    also, no you didn’t mention multiple people, I’m sure of it. ‘quarrels’…. hmm.

    Oh i hope that sooooo much. The article talks about much improved animations and everything looking dynamic and realistic, i must say that in motion. Is there any planned release date known?

  69. Psychotech

    you’d like to think so.
    since you keep on checking on our previous debates,check this too.i believe it was the one before yesterday’s,i mentioned it there.Since i find other things in real life more entertaining i cannot remember the exact thread and provide you with a link.
    You’re better at this,i’ll give you that.

    #69 4 years ago

    @68 I have a feeling we may see something in the next 2 months tops.Nothing confirmed though.It looks promising doesn’t it?

  71. DaMan

    you ‘ve said that to someone else. the only thing i kept hearing from your login is the ‘you haven’t figured me out’ one. I do believe it ‘s more telling about that life how people appear at certain topics though, not the fact they post here.

    uhhh. ‘quarrels’…

    how many people are using the account though? seriously, I’m just wondering.
