Tomb Raider Will Have a Second Game

Very few is known about this matter, however the story line will probably take place in another supposed deserted island or in some mysterious place inhabited by tribes. What's certain is that the new Lara Croft will be coming back with a breathless adventure. (PC, Tomb Raider)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 12

Of course. When you sell a million copies in a mere 2 days a sequel is pretty much confirmed.
Senyra  +   1061d ago
Yep, I think they'll announce it sooner than we expect. Easy gold mines are normally explored at a fast pacing.
DoomeDx  +   1061d ago
a SECOND game?

Seriously? They think this is the first tomb raider game?
Senyra  +   1061d ago
The second one with the new Lara possibly from Square Enix too, if you had read the news you wouldn't say such non sense.

Not suprise.
I hope to see more alone adventure, than a action shooting game.(I want to see more like Tomb Raider 1-4, than some shooting)
Irishguy95  +   1061d ago
Good stuff. I'm almost finished the first I think

Hopefully

"however the story line will probably take place in another supposed deserted island or in some mysterious place inhabited by tribes"

No...I'd rather have her back to raiding Tombs across the world.

I want this game to actually feel like a TR game again. I'll give the first one the benefit of the doubt but if they don't manage to capture TR charm from the old days then I'll know it's turned into another third person shooter
Imalwaysright  +   1060d ago
?? TR has ALWAYS been a third Person shooter. In fact, it was TR that popularized the genre and made it relevant back in 1996. What are you talking about?

It was a third person puzzle game with shooting elements. Shooting wasn't a focus in the old Tomb Raider games, exploring and the puzzles were.

If they keep this up it's going to look like a poor mans Uncharted.
Imalwaysright  +   1060d ago
I would agree if you were strictly speaking about TR1 but since part 2 shooting and killing enemies has become an integral part of TR. Not only that but having shooting elements qualifies a game as being, you know, a shooter.

@Root

I'm starting to get the feeling that your extremely pissed off about people liking this game...
MikeMyers  +   1060d ago
Pekolie, he was like that with Dead Space 3 and Devil May Cry as well. In fact he wanted both of those games to fail and would call others PR people if they liked them.

People come here to share opinions, not drown out others in hopes people join your (not you) bandwagon of negativity.

Franchises have a right to change anytime they want. Remember the old campy Batman TV shows? Do you really think people are going "oh man, whatever happened to the POW! onscreen when they punched the enemies?" We have new generation of fans out there so of course newer ip's that have done well now like Uncharted will have their influences. The Tomb Raider series was getting stale and some of them weren't actually very good. This new one is a good fresh new take on it and can actually spur more interest because the older games were getting quite stale. Also some of them had plenty of action/shooting.

@Mike

Here we go again...Mike wanting to go off topic so he can have a dig at me. How immature.
MikeMyers  +   1059d ago
Root, why is it only ok for you to go off-topic?

http://n4g.com/news/1146772...

I say bring on the second game, they did a great job with this one. A lot better than some of the previous Tomb raider games.
Root  +   1060d ago
@Pekolie

Why...I enjoyed the game, I liked it but people are acting like it was perfect. I'm sick of old franchises becoming a shadow of their former selfs, if thats the case you may aswell create a new IP.

@Imalwaysright

So?

It still focused more on exploring and puzzles...rather then anything this TR does. It's wave after wave of enemies and the tombs are optional.
Imalwaysright  +   1060d ago
So that it was the point i was trying to make. Tomb Raider has always been a TPS.
LessThan2Tflops  +   1061d ago
Great news!
Jek_Porkins  +   1061d ago
Loved this game much more than I expected, serious GOTY contender in my opinion.

derghhh...it'll be great to see Lara not as a survivor but a conqueror
Godmars290  +   1061d ago
Yeah. Where this game was an introduction, the second has to be a refinement.
Dannehkins  +   1061d ago
My main concern is if Crystal Dynamics can keep this up. I thought Tomb Raider was just so refreshing and it was the first Tomb Raider in a long while that I really enjoyed. I think they hit a winning formula so I just hope they can carry that through in the sequel.
Senyra  +   1060d ago
Well, the new game will probably use a new engine to follow the new gen gaming market. It wouldn't be unusual, Dragon Age franchise has done that already in order to obtain better effects and graphics.

So glad there will be another! One of the goty contenders in my opinion. Best game ive played for a while!
KillrateOmega  +   1060d ago
As long as they can carry the magic of the first game through to the sequel, then I'll be more than down. I wish them good luck.
My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante  +   1060d ago
And that confirms that Tomb Raider is a dead franchise. It's nothing but a generic shooter now.
xXBlondieVanHarlowXx  +   1060d ago
See this is why nobody likes new emo Dante. He's a whiny lying douche. TR was great, could've had a better Lara voice actress but it was a fine shooter / PLATFORMER nonetheless.

Now be a good emo and go yell "F**k you" at that wall for about an hour.

Well of course there is a sequel planned; i'm not spoiling it by saying that's how they left it at the end of the game...i don't expect an announcement until the fall and the game to come out in late spring or early summer.
Nocturne147  +   1060d ago
I finished newest TR (2013) 3 times on all difficulities, such an amazing game/story. I can't wait for the another one! Seriously,one of the best games i've EVER played ,and GOTY for me, definitely.
