Default Arriving this spetember: Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Head to the official Tomb Raider website and you’ll see a message promising an announcement on March 15, 2018 at 6am PT. Inspect the HTML, however, and you’ll see the announcement early:
“tagline”:”Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the climatic finale of Lara’s origin story. Available September 14th 2018"
Not in the article, yet inside HTML:
“platforms”:[”xbox one”,”ps4",”pc”]

Of course I'm buying. The first two "reboot" games were fantastic.

Replayed last trilogy ( Anniversary, Legend and Underworld), recently. They hold up pretty well, remake actually being the best, by a good margin.
It had a sense of grand scale to tombs, really great level design with less exposit-ory main story ( well at lest, less pretending to be good at it).
Old Lara was a bit one note/try-hard bad ass, but want to see some of her old attitude aback( replacing Yes, I can do this!!!
And more style and movement based gameplay with crazy acrobatics, like REVI would work great.

I liked the first reboot, but the older games are too repetitive for me. Find key A for Door A, then Key B for Door B, etc.

I also want to know where she got her magic pistols with unlimited ammo.

I too recently played some of the 2006 reboot with Legend last year and Anniversary in the last couple of months. As I mentioned in another thread recently, I like the puzzle aspects and not having to solve everything with guns. Was kind of cool to revisit TR1 again in Anniversary. Swan diving off really high things is strangely satisfying. Own the first one but am yet to play any of the current series.

Funnily enough, with another movie coming out soon, I was reading an article re the history of TR just last night.

The puzzles were fun but most of them weren't terribly..uhh… puzzly. You just found the one place you could grab something, then went to the one other ledge, then the one other pole… at the end of the room you would double check that you used every single item in the room. If you didn't, there's a secret you missed and one specific point where you actually could have gone two ways. The games were FAR more about platform skills than finding a way to get from A to B.

Well, that and watching Lara do handstands.

I went through the orginal tomb raiders (I-III) back in the day on a playstation 1 and they were a blast. I just can't imagine ever replaying them. Those games were hard as nails. So many tricky jumps and unforgiving gameplay. PS1 didn't even allow saving at any time, so you were forced to use certain saving points. So when you missed a certain jump and fell into abyss, the whole sequence again…

As for the reboot, I loved these two new tomb raider games. Awesome gameplay. Really enjoyed every moment of them. This is how you reboot old series with a class. They kept the spirit while bringing so much new stuff and features to the table.

A trailer arrived (CGI, not actual gameplay):

loading…


If trailer speaks about the ingame story, the masochistic heroine from first two torture porn installments finally becomes a proper predator.
I'm buying! Erm, said that before haven't I?

Pass never played a single game in this series.

Reason why? Well I never cared about the series.

It's also not the only long running series of games I will never play.

Care to elaborate your reasoning? I think Tomb Raider reboot has been one of the examples how one revives & reforms stagnated series. Plus Lara Croft is one kickass heroine.

I played the first two when they were out for the original Playstation system, I want to say maybe that was 1996 and then 1997. They were ok, but I'd had enough of them and didn't try the third or any that came after. If they ever change into a turn based system, I might take another gander.

Like I said never cared about the series that's all. Just like most console game franchises like God of War, Halo, and a few others released every year. Just not my cup of tea.

As I prefer to play strategy games & RPGs. I also hate the control schemes of action games. There are a few exceptions as I will play the Deux Ex/Dishonored games.

I'll probably wait for the 'complete' version like I did last time.

Maybe not if they just stick with the same engine.

So will I, but I'll definitely look forward to playing it. I was pleasantly surprised by the Tomb Raider reboot, and I started to take a liking to all those "action games with RPG elements" (e.g. Far Cry 3, Mad Max, Tomb Raider, etc.). I know I know, RPG purists probably despise those games, but hey, it's a guilty pleasure of mine.
