Crystal Dynamics on Not Failing at Rebooting Tomb Raider, PC Love and Recrafting an Icon - AusGamers

AusGamers recently had a chance to catch up with Crystal Dynamics' Brian Horton who serves as senior art director on the Tomb Raider reboot.

Among topics discussed, Brian told AusGamers that high-end PC owners will be "very, very happy" with how they've treated the game on the desktop platform and that they definitely went back to Lara's roots to hit the right notes with Tomb Raider.

"The essence of [the original] game actually had a mature flavour to it, and I think we brought it a little bit back to that Tomb Raider One flavour, versus the more storybook flavour that it achieved as it progressed as a game," Horton told AG.

But it was in the need for this reboot to resonate, successfully, with gamers he was most candid, explaining that they've essentially gone all in.

"We’re one hundred percent focused right now on Tomb Raider," he said. "There is obviously potential for the future -- we’re always thinking about the future in some capacity -- but we know if we don’t get... (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Exactly. It's a disgusting mechanic to have in the game! I wouldn't mind living off animals but nope... That's impossible!

To me this isn't Tomb Raider. I want to play as LARA CROFT, not some girl who has no skills and screams when being hurt etc.

Tomb Raider was all about escapism, to play as a sexy woman who could do anything and fight dinosaurs etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the developers say that this is an origin story of sorts? Why would you be expecting to play as the Lara Croft of old? Maybe in the second one they make, but certainly one would think going in that this game would be different.

I'm not expecting to play as an older Lara in an origin story, but I'd rather not have an origin story.

I'll give this one a try, but might not buy it day one, wait and see what reviews describe it as. I was really hoping for the game to follow the traditional tombraider path. I really enjoyed the last 3 games the most.

Not sure if pc version is worth it for this title. Game looks a lot like AC3, engine-wise. PC version will probably be a similar port with slightly more AA and fps.
