Square Enix has announced "a new Tomb Raider game", by which it probably means Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but it sounds like it won't feature tonight at The Game Awards or tomorrow at PlayStation Experience.
I heard Crystal dynamics won't be developing the third game
"Shadow of the Tomb Raider was leaked this time last year when someone on a train noticed someone else on a train writing a marketing report for the game. Whoops! Apparently Shadow won't be made by Crystal Dynamics, the regular studio behind Tomb Raider, but rather Eidos Montreal." It's in the Credit URL not to mention Crystal dynamics is working on the new Avengers game. Unless they're developing both game's.
@runningx or you know they could put it on the system that will actually sell some copies(spoiler, its the PS4) if they wanna make mad bank
running, if you're taking about gfx it'll be on pc. x version will be in-between as always. You can say best console version but not best version. Don't be misleading like m$.
@runningx looking forward to having an exclusive title, even if only for a little bit, eh?
Can't wait I really enjoyed Rise of the Tomb Raider
Is it timed exclusive to any platform? If it is, ill wait until its in the bargain bin.
Yeah, I still need to play the second one.
I doubt that will happen. MS didn't really care about having it exclusive when they got that Fallout 4 marketing deal, and MS really screwed over the marketing on the game the second they announced FO4 releasing on the same day. It didn't do anything for MS by being exclusive. Sony is in a much stronger position now, and considering the game still did better on PS, square inst' likely to give exclusivity cheap this time around.
I'm a big fan of Tomb Raider and ROTTR. I'm pumped for a new one.
Cool. Hope it goes back to the original TR style.
Why reboot a series, watch it be very successful, and then totally change what people, obviously, really enjoyed with the prior two when it came to the third in, again ... the reboot? Tomb Raider was great. Rise of the Tomb Raider was even better. Just as before, I am just hoping for an even bigger improvement on the formula.
All I meant was more puzzles, exploration and platforming instead of that shooter heavy stuff.... but that is all people can appreciate nowdays, shoot and kill.
Rise was a good combination of world exploration and traversal, combat, and puzzles. I'd be the first to admit that the first in the reboot was combat heavy. There was a lot of combat in Rise, but they balanced it out with more exploration, and more in-depth puzzles. And nobody can say that the combat, itself, in RIse was bad. Pretty much a 180 from that. Everyone will have their preferences, but I thought they found a good balance with the sequel. I'm just looking for more than that, cleaned up, and with some added elements.
You are right, however I've been playing TR since the very first game and personally I much prefer the first trilogy as opposed to new reboot ones. I think RotTR was still very heavy on combat and the puzzles were still a joke that a 5 year old could solve very fast. Story was almost a carbon copy of the first one. I enjoyed the reboots but they both are combat heavy and based on shooting rather than puzzles and platforming. But that's just my opinion. What do I know? I just played every TR game ever released.
I loved the last Tomb Raider too.
Hopefully we can get this out of the way and maybe in another reboot they can give us a proper Tomb Raider game like the older ones. Even if they remastered TR1-3 in a collection like what happened with Crash I'll be fine with that. I know we had Anniversary but it didn't feel the same.
Exactly, didn't feel the same because tomb raider hasn't aged well at all. Your nostalgia keeps it entertaining. I liked 2 alot because I played it since I was a kid but after playing the others I realized it was only good for its time. Not even a good game in this day and age where crash is still fun because it's like Mario. Where the controls work perfect and it's not about graphics so it will be timeless
A Tomb Raider trilogy remake a la CB remake would be amazing. But, I don't think there is any chance what so ever.
Huge fan of TombRaider can't wait for the next game.
Please no time exclusivity ! :(
Too soon for another sequel. It's gonna be meh calling it.
Like Arkham Origins???
Glad to hear it and the emphasis on the word "fans" in their statement, to me indicates that it will be all platforms.
Bob on, After playing ROTTR on X1 then UC4 on PS4, then ROTTR on PS4P and finally again on XOX, I'm hungry for a new Tomb Raider. I do agree with my fella that UC4 was brilliant but ROTTR was perfection. Naughty Dog were outclassed this time around.
No just simply no ND perfected the Indiana Jones/tomb raider formula than square Enix rebooted
NO, completely and utterly No, ND did a great job and produced a great game but the Rise of Tomb Raider game was stunning. ND were outclassed in this case, in my view. ND get points for thinking of the idea of taking The film and combining it with Tomb Raider. They get nothing for originality but kudos for creating a great game
ND perfected a walking simulator. Ha.
Yeah I guess about 9 million people disagree If it wasn't for uncharted there would be no reboot
@Deep-Throat.... And Both Tomb Raider Reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider copied Uncharted EXTENSIVELY to reclaim a semblance of relevance!!!!
Everyone has an opinion even when some are bad.
That's why I stated it as opinion. There is no such thing as bad opinions by the way that's the point
No so thing as bad opinions, however there is unpopular opinions and they tend to reflect ridiculous and outlandish viewpoints...
Looking back to Uncharted 4 , there is just no way it was outclassed by ROTR
"ROTTR was perfection" You have a pretty low standard for perfection. Let's see. ROTTR was lacking in story, character development, interesting cast, and originality.
Name a Tomb Raider that won Overall Goty yeah you cant Uncharted did it twice 200 for UC2 and 165 for Uncharted 4 in a 10 year span 21 years and TR has yet to accomplish that and probably never will, Uncharted sales slap TR even with TR being on multiple platfroms. last I check no Uncharted game got rated a 50 on metacritic you can find multiple TR flops which commercially bombed and critically bombed, lowest rated Uncharted is 88 from ND. which funny enough is the current peak for TR.
LOL Tomb Raider got beat in Graphics, Story/characters and Gameplay (Hence why Uncharted has a fully functioning multiplayer which speaks to how tight and responsive the gameplay is) by Uncharted. Also UC4 won so many GOTY awards so how does Tomb Raider outclass Uncharted? BTW I've played and beat both games.
LOL, UC4 Won awards and ROTTR did not. Graphics wise, im sorry you should be blind if you think ROTTR is better. Go play again and pause How both old mans faces look and the textures and polycount on tomb raider was mediocre. And the story?? Very subjective mate. Gameplay, control and animation were slightly clunky on tomb raider while UC4 is so smooth, i cant believe the climbing mechanics in tomb raider was so slow and you cannot even run and gun. Please dont insult Naughty Dog by comparing them to crystal dynamics who has only acquired a few awards.
As long as they're not dumb enough to make it a timed exclusive then I'm on board for this game.
probably sponsored by microsoft to give people a reason to buy an xboxx.
Bit like Street Fighter 5 and Sony. See, I can come up with sh!te too
exept mine is a prediction and yours is already known fact.
@pinkcrocodile75 SF5 - Japanese games on Xbox? Numbers tells us that it doesn't sell well on Xbox, so put more effort on the platform which sells the most. I remember reading articles about Darrell Gallagher (Crystal Dynamics previous CEO) getting a hard time because the exclusive deal didn't pay off. Plus I'm pretty sure ROTR sold more on PS4 in the long run than XB one. show me a link if I'm wrong on the sales.
Except Street fighter isn't timed exclusive! It's exclusive to Sony on consoles
@Spambot0815 prediction = making sh!t up
But isn't Street Fighter 5 also on PC?
Can't wait for it.I really liked the last one.Will get this for my Xbox X.
Hopefully they learnt their lesson not to make this a time exclusive again else I'll wait till bargain bin price like I did ROTTR
nah they won't. the deal didn't pay off in the long run, so I really doubt they'll do it again. Plus with the last statement Square Enix said "PC Is Essential; Policy Is To Get All Games on Every Platform "As Far As Possible" They've learned and won't do such a huge mistake again.
Tomb raider is awesome!!
I can't wait to see a gameplay trailer.
Let it be 4k on the X i can't wait for this to come out
talking about milking it
Really liked the reboot and the latest one. Gonna be cool to see where the story is going.
Square Enix has definitely handled the Tomb Raider franchise better than Eidos did.
Very good. Another TR. Keep these coming. They're great fun.
Sweet, I really enjoyed the previous 2 Tomb Raider games and more is always welcomed.
Will Laura have boobs again? #MakeLauraGreatAgain
I used to love Tomb Raider when I was a young lad, but now I'm not interested in any of the new TR games... Dunno why... Maybe I should just give em a try and find out for sure.
Waiting for MS to announce it as exclusive. "true 4k xbox one x exclusive" "extra rays of light xbox one x exclusive" "play it using xbox one controller exclusively on xbox one" "extra shadow details xbox one x exclusive" "achievement xbox one exclusive" "green case xbox one exclusive"
Big fan of the reboots, got a lot of time for this one.
Love Tomb Raider and ROTTR. I'm excited for a new one.
