During a Q&A session, Noah Hughes reveals some new information about Rise of the Tomb Raider, talking about QTE, damage system, animations and sprint.
I hope MS buys the IP , cause with all these things being done between MS/CD be a shame and lost opportunity for MS to not own a great franchise.
It would be valuable to own,. But I don't see it happening.
Yeah I don't see it happening but certainly would be worthy of the get. Alternatively, MS should looking hard at Tomb Raider and Uncharted (since Phil admitted he doesn't have an Uncharted as of yet) and reboot Perfect Dark Zero into a 3rd person action adventure game. I think its the perfect IP for them to do it with.
I'm sure the IP isn't for sale...
It would be stupid from SE to sell one of their most profitable and well known IPs.
With Phil at the helm I do hope MS doesn't miss another opportunity at acquiring a talented studio/IP. Bioware was the BIGGEST mistake they made, not acquiring Bioware at the right time. If it was 5 years ago I wouldn't say SE was selling IPs, but they've made some questionable decisions and IDK what their plans are.
I think the whole Rare thing scared them plus Bioware wanted like 5 billion I believe.
Going exclusive would be a bad business decision for the developers. They want their game in as many hands as possible, that turns into $$$$4
for ANY developer
Why would SE sell it's IP to the lowest console install base? That would be the dumbest thing ever.
Didn't realize that Microsoft owned the Wii U...
I'm sorry but we're talking current gen systems not last gen systems. LOL the point still stands why would they? It makes not even the slighest bit of sense to sell it to the runner up.
Money talks louder than install base. I doubt SE will outright sell the IP or CD though. Maybe CD, but not the IP. It's worth a ton of money due to it's name recognition. Even if no games were made in recent years, the IP is probably not worth buying when you can get the games and revenue from that without the risk involved in producing the game.
Rainslacker more install base=Money So selling it again makes no sense whats so ever.
Game is going to be amazing, they really brought tomb raider back from the dead in a big way.
Have her SWIM this time...tomb raider without swimming isn't tomb raider....
No words about if she will be able to swim this time?
If I knew the latest instalment of the Tomb Raider franchise was going to be exclusive to XB1 - thats what I would have bought, instead of the PS4 which I did instead. Yes, Uncharted was good, U2 very, very good, but U3 felt a bit flat compared to its predecessor, and a bit trite. The Tomb Raider reboot however - which I played on PC some while after initial release - felt to me alive and dynamic, if a bit to many shoot outs. I just hope this the latest in the Tomb Raider franchise is brought to the PC sooner rather than later...it all sounds great.
Just be patient? Everything points to it being a timed exclusive.
@mixelon You mean as in it coming to the PC right?
im in the same boat my friend i got a uncharted 1 feel when i played tombraider it felt fresh, exciting can't wait to get my hands on the new game
@higgins78 I feel the rest of the ps4 exclusive first party studios are more than enough to make up for the exclusivity deal of Tomb Raider, timed or whatever it turns out to be. Not to mention games like No Man's Sky, The Tomorrow Children, Rime, Wild, Until Dawn, etc. etc. etc.....yeah..I loved the Tomb Raider reboot as much as anybody, but there are so many other games in Sony's roster that to me, are not to be missed, that I take it all with a grain of salt. Tomb Raider and Quantum Break are the only AAA games (outside of Forza) that I would feel I am really missing out on by not buying an xbone, but that list is far longer if I look at what I would be missing out on if I didn't have a ps4. I'm sure Microsoft has more to announce, but I look at studios like Sony Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Quantic Dream, Guerilla, Media Molecule, Sucker Punch, Bend, Polyphony, etc. etc. and cannot wait to see what those proven studios produce. I will probably wait till the slim xbone launches to pick that up, as Halo is not for me and I fear Black Tusk may be quite a ways from delivering the next Gears of War. We shall see...to each his/her own, of course, but I've always found Sony's gaming library to be much more diverse than Microsoft's, by comparison. Just my opinion. So for the moment, I'm more than busy with my pc, ps4, ps3, and xbox 360....but no doubt I'm hoping to add a wii u and xbone to that list in the future.
Ever heard of paragraph's? LoL. JK. Out of the games you mentioned, yes, No Man's Sky looks particularly brilliant - probably my most anticipated game this year for my PS4. Regarding the other consoles. I highly recommended anybody purchase a WiiU. Its fair to say mine has had far more attention in 2014 than my PS4, which is (sadly) getting more used as a BluRay/catch-up player than a games machine, but I still have hope. Either way, its Star Fox U as my most anticipated, mostly due to my imagination and the unknown nature of it all at this stage.
i know im gonna like this game more than uncharted simply because shes hot and its the same type of game almost nothing against naughty dog they are one of the biggest reasons i got a ps4 but im a guy... id rather see lara then nathan on my 65 " hdtv
Lmaooooooooo my exact same thoughts I would rather look at a pretty girl than a guy but then again I will be playing both anyway. This Tomb raider sounds like it is going to be the most ambitious Tomb raider to date.
my oh my, you really have issues with that type of logic. Tomb raider 2013 was excellent,way better than uncharted 3 imo
I have never played an uncharted game so i cant really compare but tomb raider was a really good game the only thing that bothers me about rise of the tomb raider is its going to be released for the 360 as well.
Lol. I can't wait to see the gameplay unveiling at E3. This game is gonna rock big time.
I feel drake had a better personality and character. The new Lara is rather bland compared to the old.., but I guess she is attractive and honestly more realistic than the original. This new game is looking to explore her origin more, and I guess extend on the theme that she has yet to come into her original kick-ass indiana jones-esque character that so many people are used to. I hope they do at least, because the reboot Lara really isn't all that interesting. Both characters are rather cliche though. I liked the reboot though. Solid game and fun to play. Story wasn't all that great though. Overall, I'll play both, and probably enjoy both.:)
LOL TOmb Raider is sooooo goood now. Not so much 2-3 yrs ago it was just good but now it's GREATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
Traditional costumes as an option atleast would be nice
The fact is that the majority of the Tomb Raider fans are on Playstation. Tomb Raider became Playstation exclusive with TR2 on PSone mostly because Tomb Raider 1 sold terribly on the Sega Saturn. The Playstation 3 version of Tomb Raider reboot sold more than the Xbox360 and PC versions even though it was not the best port. Rise of Tomb Raider just does not make sense as an Xbox exclusive either financially or where its real fanbase is at no matter how many people spin it a thousand different ways. Rise of Tomb Raider will come to PS4 and it will look better and have added content. I just hope I don't have to wait a year to get it on PS4.
That's what makes this so galling. It isn't so much that it's exclusive. It's that it's excluding the largest contingent of its fans. If the majority of the franchise's fans were on Xbox, it wouldn't be as big of a deal, but that's not the case.
