Square Enix launched a new trailer to hype the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, coming to PlayStation 4 on October 11.
Is there going to be a sequel to Rise or is Square Enix waiting on sales of the PS4 version before making a decision?
Don't you know the Tomb Raider two Game deal? You do two games then reboot ha No but seriously even if they did hopefully it will be one of the original Lara in the Himalayas after he plane goes down killing her parents and fiancée with med kits, puzzles, underground tombs, lots of hazards, traps and supernatural creatures.
If they are waiting on PS4 sales they should hold their breath...because I want to see them turn blue and pass out for making such a decision. PS4 owners are not going to jump on this game en masse until it is in the bargain bin or the used game pile. SE made their bed and now they can lie in it. And it is hilarious that comments are disabled for the video. Even they know what they did by stabbing PlayStation gamers in the back for a paltry sum and telling such a ridiculous lie when they did so.
"Would Street fighter have been made without Sony financing the project? No." Street fighter would have been made without sony funding. It's street fighter after all. Capcom's biggest fighting series. It is impossible to think they were that financially strapped they couldnt make it but oh... they can make another RE game and DMC and megaman... Give me a break morgan. You can't be that naive to believe capcom saying they had no $$ to make SF5. And your obsession over RotTR being timed is also pretty baseless because out of 11 games only 2 were ever exclusive to the PS1 so you need to get off that horse you think is so high and mighty and realize that both of these situations is pretty crappy to do to gamers. At least with timed the game still comes out to others. Capcom should just admit what they did with Sony's money, which is release a half assed game that was paid to be kept off xb1 and the xbox fighting fan base. you can be a sony supporter all you like but even you have to admit that it is straight up wrong to take a multiplat game and use it as some sort of pawn in a really bad game of chess. Absolutely, no 3rd party game should ever be used in that manner.
was their an outcry for dlc in games like destiny? how about sony going after hello games and being the publisher to prevent the game from coming to the xbox and nx? was it ok for sony to make a deal for street fighter which was never an exclusive before? i don't get this biased vision, where it's ok when it suits you but then you get upset when it doesn't.
I don't even believe it's because it's a bad game, merely that there is stiff competition releasing this fall. I think Square has already factored that gamers may overlook its port.
@_-EDMIX-_ "I don't even believe it's because it's a bad game, merely that there is stiff competition releasing this fall. I think Square has already factored that gamers may overlook its port." that can be said every year about most games. last year ps4 fans snubbed it off saying they already have lots to play and will wait for uncharted 4. the fact is it is very easy to try and brush off any game that you either can't play or are upset about the deals that went on. rocket league came out late on the xbox one and its another great title to add. the other thing many here are ignoring is that there are new ps4 owners all the time so of course this game will be attractive to some of them too. let's not get all childish and immature here because of business deals otherwise we wouldn't buy anything because at the end of the day they are running a business and using softawre as leverage has ALWAYS been done. just look at the deals rockstar did with grand theft auto on the ps2 and games like san andreas having an early launch and coming out later on the xbox. if people had the money they would not be acting like children here and choosing sides and arguing about silly things.
Doubtful. If they're going to make a sequel It's a likely already started development long ago. I do not believe the sequel's existence lies on the PlayStation 4 versions performance of Rise.
Getting it when in sale. Not paying $60
Good for you! Sucks that your gonna have to wait even longer to play this amazing game.
Lol it won't suck at all because first of all, he has waited a full year for it so waiting another 2-3 months for a sale wouldn't make a difference. Second, there are plenty on games releasing that will even probably make him forget ROTTR even exists lol
PS gamers waited a year already,waiting a little longer for bargins is no skin off their teeth.
why waiting? there is a lot of great new games to play throughout the holiday season, you can play them while watch out for the discount. they won't hold the 60$ too long, by the time you finish playing Horizon the price probably drop to 30$ or lower, if you still remember it then buy.
Uh, I do not think you got his message. Ahem, HE DOES NOT CARE!!!! You welcome
This is what I do for most games. I don't pay $60 for anything. Will wait to pick up TR and Uncharted 4 when it hits the bargain bin.
I keep on hearing there will be a lot of great games for him to play that are better than rotr but I'm not seeing any names. Bet none of them will have its metacritic score!
What's a couple more months? We already waited a year. It's not like there are a lack of Games in October. ABZU, Last Guardian, Gran Turismo, Battlefield 1, Titanfall, South Park FBH, Watch Dogs 2, Gears of War 4, Recore and a whole slew of other games. A tonne of actual and literally NEW content instead of getting a year old game at full price.
Didn't they already show the gameplay when the game was the released a year ago? Pretty sure PS4 owners have enough data to go on.
They waited a year to bring this out to PS4, I will wait a year until the lower prices for this game to get it. I'm a patient person
It won't take a year, it'll probably be a month. Heck I'd expect to see 45 dollars sales near launch. It'll drop to the bargain bin fast like it did on x1
Black Friday is a month after the release date.
I'll pay my monthy gamefly membership fee of 13 bucks and play this within the first month it comes out...just like just about every other game I want to play. Basically no waiting and cheap= win
Getting this when it hits the bargain bin. To many other games coming out. Maybe next year. I never buy used, but I might do it with this game. I'm I the only one that's not hyped up for this game?
Nope you're not the only one. The year in between and Uncharted 4 destroyed any hype I had for this game. I work at a EB Games so I am just going to wait for a sale or for a used copy for $30 before I get it. Way too many games more deserving of my money in the fall. ABZU for example comes a week or so before it for example.
Agreed this fall is very packed in there a lots of games that are getting put on the back burner because of it. I was going to get Skyrim HD and world of Final Fantasy in a few other games but with releases like Final Fantasy 15 ,no man's sky, BF1, the last Guardian etc it's a very difficult justifying purchasing a title I don't feel I'll even care that much about in comparison to other titles. I find that if I'm not going to purchase it to play it the week of release there isn't much reason for me to pay full price. Looking at a lot of Springs titles like Doom and Far Cry Primal it was clear it was the correct choice to just wait it out as those games are dirt cheap right now. I've already allocated time to other games releasing this fall and I have a budget and it's to the point where no matter how good the game is I just do not have the time to justify spending full price for something I won't fully play until weeks or even months later. Companies need to realize that releasing a game during a certain time frame can literally determine whether or not I'm purchasing it brand new or used.
You're not alone
I never buy used games but this is a game that I will only buy used, if I get it at all.
Truly a great game Everyone should play it at some point whether it's at $60 or $20
Yeah i'll play it when it's $30 or below.
I don't think I'm going to buy this unless there's a guarantee that there won't be another awful exclusivity deal for a potential sequel.
That won't happen until the next game is officially announced. It's the business world. Anything could happen with enough money.
The more PS4 gamers that buy it the more it shows them that they don't need to make deals or if they do want to then the PS4 can be that platform by showing with Rise that it is the most popular platform for Tomb Raider.
But the PS4 version of Tomb Raider DE outsold the XB1 version. PS gamers were already showing that there was no need to make any sort of deal to begin with. This was a case of Microsoft throwing money at SE and they took it hoping to combo off of it with good sales on one platform and it backfired.
Wasn't Rise exclusivity only bought so that MS can have something that could compete with Uncharted 4? Pretty sure a certain xbox exec mentioned that. They didn't have to make the deal. They did it because they thought that it would benefit them in the long run, and the comparisions with U4 would bring more attention to the series. Don't think that worked out so well for them.
"The more PS4 gamers that buy it the more it shows them that they don't need to make deals" I'm not sure that tracks w/ the way business works. The timed exclusivity was an experiment in some senses...if the game sells well on the PS4 at launch then it was essentially a successful experiment in Square's eyes because they don't really seem to care what the fans think, it's all about that bottom line. If the game does well on the PS4 it'll essentially strengthen their conviction to do another timed deal, because not only did they hit their projections, all of the money MS gave them would've essentially been pure profit & like a bonus for them, hence the reason why they'd just turn around and do it again. If the game tanks on PS4, then Square will be less likely to do another deal because the money MS gave them wouldn't even be enough to make them whole, much less make them higher profits. Either way, I'm a PS4 gamer & I absolutely wouldn't want them to make the next sequel timed in my favor. The timed exclusivity is a poor practice for their fans, I felt spurned based off of the box I picked up, how would it somehow make me feel better if the next time they just spurned the loyal TR fanbase that went Xbox? No more timed deals in general would be great, but MS continue to be the sole purveyors of these things in terms of the major third party multiplat titles. After Spencer claimed he disliked timed deals & didn't want to do any more under his reign, he turned right around & bought up another one only a year later. This shouldn't be a trend, if we can't get MS to do the right thing by gamers & funnel their funds into their own software as opposed to just stealing it off of other platforms, then the next best thing is to send the message to devs that gamers won't accept sloppy seconds at full retail price.
This game is amazing.... I'll gladly buy it after having played it on the one and pc...
I love tomb raider, it's one of my favorite games to play, but i'm not going to pay $60 bucks for this. It can sit on the shelf and wait for me like I had to wait for it. Way too many new games coming out in Oct-Dec and this isn't new.
I'm getting this on release day, been a Tombraider fan since the very first one on the original playstation.
Strange situation here. I imagine it isn't CD fault for the exclusive deal and was Square's decision. Do we wait for the price drop to stick it to Square or do we support the game showing they made a mistake doing the exclusive thing? Also Crystal deserves to be rewarded for making a great game. Iffy situation here.
It should make it easier for you knowing that CD won't receive any rewards regardless of how much the game sells on PS4. Profits & bonuses are typically reserved for the brass at Square or at a stretch the small handful at the top of CD's team, none of the true devs in the trenches working on this game will see any kind of benefit from decent PS sales. I will wait for used or a price drop personally after maybe renting it at Redbox to get my fix on release. Then I will make sure to spread the word on the great job the devs at CD did, while simultaneously bashing Square & MS for proliferating this stupid timed exclusivity trend, which is easily one of the worst practices in all of gaming imo. Either way I'm really pumped to finally get the chance to play the newest installment on one of my favorite franchises, but I won't do it at the cost of my principles.
Agreed. The irony is that Phil Spencer himself derided such practices then went on a spiel about how he would rather they spent money on actual exclusives then what does he do to follow it up? He goes out and buys 1 year exclusive on Dead Rising 4. Yeah not a hypocrite at all.
You Playstation only gamers are so damn loyal to your brand its almost inspiring instead of foolish. Ill be picking this up again for PS4 if only because i picked the first one up on Playstation.
Because they chose not to pay full price on a game that should have been multiplat? And please don't bring up SFV because its not the same thing.
So wasn't SF always a multiplat title just like TR!. So what's the difference?care to elaborate.
That is too ignorant a statement to properly respond to . A great game is a great game... GAMER. Or whtever you call yourself im here to play games
I never denied Tomb Raider is a good game but Square shouldn't be surprised if no one pays full price.
@XBgamer SF5 needed funding, RTR didnt
And? There is still no difference. Sony funded Street Fighter 5 the same way and for the same reasons of some kind of exclusivity as Microsoft funded Rise of Tomb Raider.
@Night99 uuuh no, when RTR was announced, it was multiplatform and was near completion in terms on developement. MS just swooped in and secured time exclusivity to rival Uncharted
They can keep it I have no more interest in TR. I will not contribute in anyway to making this dirty deal successful. Sales of TR where horrible on XBox and Square is regretting doing this deal they are hoping that Playstation owners will save their ass and buy masive amounts of this game. I for one will NOT reward them for betraying their fanbase.
Hey, I get not buying it at full price, but having no more interest at all? Oh, hey, is this your nose you dropped?
I was able to play TR reboot as a PS+ free game. I will wait for this game to become free or very cheap at some point before it catches my attention. Edit: Better yet, I will wait for TR3's announcement from SE and make sure it will not be 1 year exclusive to XboxOne before I buy this game. I feel bad for CD for people feeling indifferent towards this game, including myself. But it is what it is. That exclusivity deal was just a low blow to PS-only gamers. And no, not everybody can buy two consoles.
CD have been in partnership with MS ever since the original reboot. They have always made the xbox versions of their game and let outside studios port it to other platforms. I wouldn't be surprise if they had a hand in the deal as well as Square Enix
Nice trailer, probably a really good game but considering how Playstation owners were made to wait a year for a franchise they have supported unreservedly for 20 years, we ought to wait until this hits the bargain bins and get it for $25 to $40. After all, that is what we would normally pay for a year old game. What a few more months when we were forced to wait nearly a year? There are so many new games coming out during the Holiday season that deserve our money!
So I should only pay €40 or less for Persona 5 when it finally releases here in Europe? I mean, japanese gamers will get to play it this September and american gamers will get to play it February next year but for my region there isn't even a release date yet so I shouldn't pay full price when it becomes available here since its not a new game, right?
These situations are nowhere near the same. Tomb Raider always sold the most on PS platforms so the timed exclusivity deal made no sense. People are angry because SE spat in the face of people who've been buying it the most. As for Persona 5 other regions are getting it longer is because of localization not because of a contract. And ever since most localized games still charged full price. This has always been the case ever since the dawn of gaming.
@imalwayswrong the point totally flew over your hollow head, didnt it?
You're to far ahead. To play Persona 5 you should have a Sony console first. Persona 5 releases on Feb 14 2017. Please explain timed exclusivity deal that Persona 5 has with MS just like Tomb Raider since you brought it up. I'll wait.
@Imalwaysright Sorry, but you miss the point entirely. I am talking about ROTR and the fact that the franchise was a multiplatform one that was deliberately withheld from its biggest fanbase because of the greed on one company (SE) and Microsoft's unwillingness to want to develop their own exclusive IP. Persona 5 is a Sony exclusive that is being released first in Japan because it is a Japanese game and needs to be localized which takes some time and that is why American gamers will get to play it in February. Get your facts straight so that you can talk sense!
When it gets a sale I will probably pick it up....but I got the first one from PS+ and STILL haven't played it yet. Backlog hell is so real!
When it sinks to 20 dollars, I might pick it up
They say the Dutch company Nixxes is doing the ps4 version, they did the PC ROTTR, which is the best version you can get. Here's hoping that Nixxes Software use the extra power of the ps4 and be able to achieve higher graphic fidelity & 1080p/60, however unlocked like they did with the Definative Tomb Raider.
Makes me wonder why big publishing houses always hire these junk conversion companies, when you can get stellar results from Nixxes, Bluepoint Games, etc.
I'll get it when I feel that the price is right.
I'm not gonna lie I'm gonna get this Day 1 but I'm gonna be smart about this. Best Buy GCU with discounts on top of it will make sure I don't pay anywhere near $60.
cannot wait my god!!!
I want to know what has been improved. Until then it's a no buy. Also the game needs to be no more than $20
looks way better.
