Latter-half of Tomb Raider to be less bleak, Set up franchise future

Later, as-yet-unseen stages in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot will be less bleak than the game's opening section, developer Crystal Dynamics has promised.

The new, younger Lara Croft takes a battering in the adventure's opening hour, as she's turned from shipwreck victim to survivor. But players will eventually see a more confident heroine taking shape.

"You'll see a side to Lara that everyone's been waiting for," Tomb Raider brand manager Karl Stewart told Eurogamer.

That was kind of obvious, but it will be cool to see the character progression.

While I expected her to be stronger and progress later in the game, I still hope most of it is about raw survival. Its not a concept you see in games.

I'm gonna get lots of disagrees but I gotta say that, although the game is looking great, it doesn't feel like a Tomb Raider anymore to me, at least from what I've seen up to now.

Well she's not really a treasure hunter in this one if that's what you mean. This is more to set up the story for treasure hunting in sequels. I guess this one is more a bout survival. But I don't know if you mean it's different in tone and story or gameplay.

I hope towards the end it progresses towards the look and feel of the last tombraider game.

Once this flops I hope they go back to the older style...Oh, who am I kidding? This franchise has been dead for years. I miss the old PS1 style games.
