The First high-resolution screenshots of Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider have been released. The Xbox One and Xbox 360 sequel to Tomb Raider is due out this holiday.
I usually rent these games from gamefly but I think this time around it's a day one purchase.
It look cross gen. Graphic don't look too good. But this game is more about gameplay.
Graphics arent anything mind blowing, but I wouldnt say they "dont look too good". I wonder how the visuals will be on the 360 version
I'm not interested in this game. The first reboot was okay, but I'm not buying a Xbone for this game. When it comes to PS4 and drops in price a little, I'll pick it up. Or maybe if it hits a sale on Steam. EDIT: And GMR_PR is right. The graphics are no better than the first.
Graphics look amazing to me.....they have that "tight bunz" asset= http://image.noelshack.com/... -but I never get too high on screenshots, I rather judge the final product in motion, gameplay.
What in the world...? I think it looks pretty good. I'm sure it will be an improvement over the Tomb Raider reboot, which is already one of the best looking games (on PC and definitive edition on PS4/xb1).
Yeah... nothing about these screenshots look impressive to say the least. Should have just ditched the last gen.... but then again, that is a huge chunk of sales
Sony fan confirmed
graphics are far from being impressive. looks like an old gen game to me. http://image.jeuxvideo.com/... http://image.jeuxvideo.com/... (what's wrong with the fur???) Tomb Raider died after Final Revelation. @WilDRangeRfc: what's wrong with you? it's coming to PS4..
So bad graphics are a good thing now a days? :-/ What world do we live in now?
The game is beautiful..cant wait for the E3 gameplay reveal.
I will try to rent it but if i dont get it shipped im not sure what ill do. Soo many games releasing I think i can wait.
Hype is building up, now all fingers crossed that we see PC and maybe PS4 release in 2016.
A day one purchase based off magazine scans? LOL good one
Shame it's only on the bone (for now...hopefully)......enjoyed the reboot on PS3 and PS4....not buying a bone to play this..... will definitely buy for PS4 if it truly is a timed exclusive.
Weather effects, snow, rain, wind and incredible graphics. Hell yes it's Day One purchase for me. This games is going to be awesome and better then the first one.
I was actually really impressed with the first one, trilling. I may have to Day 1 this one.
Agreed, TR was pleasantly surprising. I had a lot of fun with that game. Can't wait for this, hopefully this also revisits PC eventually. Looking up to be a better game than it's well received predecessor.
The reboot was awesome. enjoyed every minute of it. The team at CD are obviously very talented.cant wait to see what they do with the sequel.
How did you guys like the reboot? It was not bad, but by no means was it way above average.
It was definitely high-quality and well-made. The soft-cover system and gunplay, and general controls were very well designed. It also offered features that distinguished itself from the competition, like the "hub" maps and evolving toolset for Lara.
Looking good I recently found out that MS is publishing TR
Why do you spread misinformation? Square enix is the publisher. Ms is the Co publisher. Hence why it's a timed exclusive.
Foehammer isnt spreading any misinformation cos MS is indeed the publisher not co-publisher http://www.ign.com/articles... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... http://www.polygon.com/2014...
christocolus even you are trying to change information?! ""Yes, Microsoft will be publishing Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox," a Microsoft spokesperson said." But Square enix will publish on the other platforms "Our partnership with Microsoft on ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ does have a duration, but we aren’t discussing those details at this time and are focused on collaborating to deliver a great game on Xbox One and Xbox 360.” Even on the video MS release for games in 2015 , when tomb raider shows up it say XBOX EXCLUSIVE HOLIDAY 2015.
If you think MS is gonna let a game they've sunk a lot of money into go to a direct competitor your gonna be dissappointed. Just like Dead Rising 3 and Ryse.
@waluigi: you mean just like the first bioshock? or even the first mass effect? MS *does not* own any of the rights to TR, and spencer has even stated: "I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise... I'm not trying to fake anybody out in terms of where this thing is. What they do with the franchise in the long run is not mine. I don't control it." http://www.polygon.com/2014... so once the publishing deal expires (because it "has a duration"), SE is free to take their game to whomever they choose. and if you think that SE is going to pass up on the larger PS4 install base, you're sadly mistaken, especially when SE has complained in the past about sales not meeting their expectations. do you honestly think that, regardless of how much money MS gave SE, SE would be satisfied with the sales numbers if it's limited to MS platforms - a platform that yielded lower sales of the previous TR iteration than its competitor?
@ziggurcat Exactly just like those games you mentioned. PS4 will probably see a version in a year+, by then everyone will have moved on to new things.
@Nekro What misinformation?LOL. Those are Squareenix words not mine. They've stated over and over again that MS is the publisher.so sorry but at this point no other platforms have been announced or do you have a link confirming this "But Square enix will publish on the other platforms" also Squareenix confirmed it themselves stating that MS would be handling the publishing of the game and outside that nothing else was stated(go through the links i provided above). Also the head of CD cleary states that outside publishing and marketing the game ,MS will also be assisting with development. So there you have it.for now its just the Xbox version available and its the version being previewed here.nothing else.so until other platforms are mentioned and more info is released all we know is that the game is currently an xbox exclusive(timed or not)and is being published by MS.
Ziggurcat The Bioshock and Mass Effect 1 are different circumstances. Bioshock was a 2k published game and it was developed while the X360 was the only next gen console out on the first year of last gen, so it is an exclusive by default. For Mass Effect, EA bought Bioware and they made a deal with MS to have Mass Effect 2 as a one year X360 exclusive in exchange for the publishing right to Mass Effect 1. On all the published games by MS thus far, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 are all on XB1 and PC later on. When Spencer said "What they do with the franchise in the long run is not mine. I don't control it." He is talking about the IP in general like Ryse and Dead Rising are also not their IPS BUT for Ryse 1 and Dead Rising 3, MS does OWNED the console publishing rights and since they hold the rights to publish on console and there could be no other publisher so I doubt you will see it on any other platform. Think Sunset Overdrive. Ill let you figure that one out. Don't think to hard.
this game looks amazing. i will be getting this one.
"This game looks amazing"... It sure dose, the level of detail in some of those shots are incredible. I can't remember seeing a game were the emotion on the faces of the characters is so believable. On top of that I'm loving what the developers are saying about the game. No question day one for me.
Day 1, love me some Lara.
Why isn't the screen taking my money?
Looks quite good. I'm looking forward to the gameplay reveal.
Day One, can't wait to go relic hunting.
Depending on how long this stays exclusive, I may be getting an XOne for this.
By the time it releases, It will probably be at $250 - $300.
You think so? That'd be pretty cool, for my sake, if that happens.
yeah i think its possible, more now that PS4 took the lead again in US.
Now that's impressive! Day one
I think they picked a perfect art style.
Pretty much the same as the first game. Nothing really standing out.
I'm so ready to see some gameplay. These will just have to do in the interim.
Shame it doesnt much look like the lara we've come to recognise!
I wasn't really expecting a major update from the Definitive Edition since it's using the same engine. The character models look a lot better though IMO.
Looks pretty great. So far away though... :(
Game looks good. Wish it was coming to PS4.
Did they change her model again???
Loved the first one, owning both systems dose have some great benefits.
Looks decent nothing special and this image shows ALOT of nasty low res textures http://image.noelshack.com/... And for some who talk like it suppose be all about "gameplay". The previews Tombraider wasn't that great in gameplay department and it was heavily over hyped by the media. I don't care what platform this game is on. But i don't see anything special about it. Graphically speaking pretty much looks the same as the first game, released on last gen consoles...
Well then you should actually start to care less.
The same could be said about uncharted,the last of us,and infamous
Not even remotely.
This is looking like a great example of cross-generation titles done right. These visuals are definitely not possible on XBOX 360 and it's showing some serious potential. No, they're not the best-looking, but remarkable when you consider Tomb Raider being open-world. Will be watching for gameplay to see how the game plays and how the visuals and frame rate hold up in real time. I only have concerns because it would surprise me for any console to have an open world with these visuals (unless you're Kojima).
i love how people here are saying they're going to buy this day 1 before even seeing gameplay.
People do that regardless of platform choice. Heard the same thing with DC And the order...look how that is turning out. Personally I am not much of a TR fan, but it looks good.
The last TR impressed the hell out of me and was my favorite game that year. This is a day 1 buy, the studio earned that faith.
Wow! Being a [email protected]$$ man, I can't wait to portray myself as a fleeting young woman fighting the tyrannical forces of the evil man species! You know they'll try to rape me and all! Kill the man! /s
Spare a thought for all those people who play JRPGs riddled with lead women who have man sized kahunas and beta male lead characters, who are sexually awkward.....
You're the one bringing stupid over-sensitive gender politics into it. Just sayin'.
Wow those are down right amazing looking cant wait to see more buying it day one on the XOne.Since the last one was so good this one is a no brainer
Its called Xbone.
This game looks amazing and if the first reboot serves as any indication of gameplay quality consider me sold.
Wait a second, hold the phone. Being an X1 exclusive I think the hate machine should start gearing up. That's what xbots have been doing with the "Order" right? Stale gameplay, it's been done before, nothing new, etc, etc, etc. By the way, where's Septic's flowery comments decrying this game? Oh, that's right. He's an Xbot. Nothing to see here.
The Order 1886 doesn't need Xbox fans to put it down, there are plenty of PS4 players who are unhappy with The Order. If The Order flops, the only ones to blame will be the developers and PS4 fans, who have been touting The Order as the game that would raise the bar for all others to try to reach. In the end, it will be the developer who created a 5-hour game with no replay value and the PS4 players who will rent rather than buy, or just skip The Order all together. No need to point the finger elsewhere.
Oh come on! On one had you say that the PS fans are hyping it up while on other you say they are unhappy with it. Which one is true? It is Xbox fanboys that always linger in the Order articles and try to bring down the game and dampen the enthusiasm. They want to prove it so bad that it is a bad game and that it is not worth buying. Why? What is their problem? Why do they care?
