Don’t worry, Rise of the Tomb Raider isn’t as “cinematic” as the E3 2015 demo made it seem.
Luckily, Arekkz got to take a look at a more freeform although still pretty scripted section from early in the game. Take a look:
As I wrote when I first played 2013’s Tomb Raider, there are portions of Crystal Dynamic’s formula that are very, very effective despite the fact that the player’s input is restricted to just a few button pushes.
I’m not sure these kinds of moments make for a very good E3 demo, though. I’m glad we got to see a bit more of what the game has to offer, for those who aren’t already sold after the first one.
Rise of the Tomb Raider hits Xbox One on November 10. It’s a timed exclusive, but we have absolutely no hints as to when it’ll come to PC and PS4. This probably seemed like more of a coup to Microsoft before Fallout 4’s release date was announced, hey? We’ll have something to keep us busy while we wait.
