Next Tomb Raider will be open-world (HQ Images)

Gamersyde: "Three artworks and a list of informations. Here's the content of the leak that gave us the very first informations on Tomb Raider 9 a few hours ago, revealing to the world what Crystal Dynamics has been up to in order to relaunch the legendary franchise. The details are surprising. For exemple, we learn that the new adventures of Lara Croft will be Rated M, a first for the series. Better yet, the game will take place in an open world - a mysterious Japanese island inhabited by strange creatures. A new perspective for the series, a little scary too. But nevertheless exciting as the possibilities are vast. Hit the link to discover the first three artworks and read all the details..."

This should be interesting to see how it turns out.

For Gods sake I hope they'll give it more polish than the previous (Underworld) Tomb Raider cause a lot of that was a glitch gangbang.

I'm hopeful.

but i don't like her new hair style i hope they keep it to the old style.

SevWolf3440d ago

This looks like a great concept, but what I don't get is why don't they just try a new game, you know it could be inspired by Tomb Raider, like how Bayonetta is inspired by DMC(same developer), but you get the point, hope it turns out well

Jamie Foxx3440d ago

even though we wont see it for a good while though

tomb raider needed a new direction as it was stale i think thats why so many gamers gravitated to uncharted

osamaq3440d ago

its too early to judge before seeing any gameplay but
they are now owned by Square Enix and they love to announce games 4+ years before they actually come out.

andron3440d ago (Edited 3440d ago )

After TR: Underworld they need to rethink and polish up their game if they want TR to be as big as it were.

I'm not sure if this is a wise direction to take TR. More mature and darker might work, but they tried that with Angel of Darkness. Focus on puzzles and exploration and leave the combat if they can't nail it...

The first Tomb raider was my favorite game "for it's time" back about 12 years now...

Tomb raider has always been,and always should be about climbing/jumps/exploration and puzzles....

If they are going to have more action it needs to be done right,not half arsed,dont do any action if you ask me,if it's going to be done poorly or even so/so...

The main formula for Tomb raider needs to be in,advanced upon and stick to the proper Tomb raider formula...Stay close to it's origin and essence,while moving forward...

Open World sounds interesting,and is a leap forward if done properly.

I have my fingers crossed...

Sounds interesting enough but it's a strange reboot at that: looks like a horror game.


The series certainly needs something new as Uncharted wiped the floor with it in EVERY department.

Not in puzzles though.

Natsu X FairyTail3440d ago (Edited 3440d ago )

If they make the game as good as the 1st Tomb Raider on PSone I'll check it out but if they keep on making games like the last ones that came out I won't be happy.

SO what do you think those guys are? Geneticaly modified humans or Monsters?

Based on the last Tomb Raiders , Drake took Lara's place at this point when it comes to exploration games to me.

NeoCloud3440d ago (Edited 3440d ago )

It does look alittle like a Legacy of Kain game [I wish it was a new Kain game], But Open world Lara game does sound promising,[but its got along way to go before it can even come close to Uncharted] when's it comin out 2009 or 2010.

Edit -- The images are not HighQuality, they are not even SD.

Id REALLY like a new Legacy Of Kain
