I realize this video came out a week ago, but there was never a thread, and their pre-order sheet reminded me of this quote.

Their pre-order unveil timeline:

Given that December 18th is pretty close, I thought some people might be interested in speculating what this is.

One popular guess was a Wii U version, especially given Straight Right's resumes, but Square Enix is also pretty big on social integration judging by Hitman, Sleeping Dogs, and Facebook in Final Fantasy XIII-2, so something along those lines is also plausible.

Or maybe something else altogether? I mean, that was a fairly strong statement.

Any guesses, or perhaps something you would like to see even if you think it won't happen?

I suspect you'll be right about some sort of social game.

I think there is a Wii U version coming, but I don't think that's what they're talking about here.

Probably some tie-in iOS/Android app.

You don't actually play Lara in the game, you play an ominous secret "protector" that watches over her from a distance, and help her complete objectives without her knowing.

I'm pretty sure this game's existence alone is changing the way we play Tomb Raider more than enough.

That being said announcements like this rarely go well for us. It'll be something like multiplayer or kinect shit.

Yeah, back in December 2010 they were hiring for multiplayer positions related to this title: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=892

They've been pretty quiet on the job postings front since then, so it is conceivable that was canceled.

However, the job postings mentioned a partner studio in Montreal, which makes me wonder that - if multiplayer exists - if it's made by Eidos Montreal. It would also explain why they wouldn't have hired much more in house.

Is the original game's version on Steam any good (i.e. graphical options and controller support), or should I buy the Playstation Network version for PS3?

And yes I've played it before thoroughly so I know what to expect. Just never got past Greece.
