I absolutely loved the first two games in this modern reboot series, hoping the third one is also great. Between this announcement and the new Tomb Raider movie opening this weekend, it's a good time to be a Tomb Raider fan.
You mean you want it to become the tired series that had the same structure for 13 years and ten games that lead to low sales because people were fed up with the series which prompted the current reimagining?
I’m not angry for one, so chill on that. And dude go play both games again or look at screenshots of the character from each game. They clearly darkened his skin complexion for Rise. It’s just ridiculous and funny to me 🤣
Trailer would be great. I hope it won't be timed exclusive like last time. I was really excited when it was revealed but then then they told later that it was Xbox exclusive. I still haven't played it.
So soon? Hasn't it been about two years since Rise released?
Anyways, I hope this game is better than Rise. Wasn't a huge fan of its narrative, its "mystery", or its focus on the time period it did. I found the japanese mythology far more interesting in Tomb Raider. Though I did love the puzzles and hope it has a bit more emphasis on those over the combat which has only been serviceable to me.
I've not played Rise and I honestly liked the first one more than I expected to, but I hope we're finally leaving the overly-cinematic, "Let's try to be like Uncharted" era of these games. The sense of exploration and slow & methodical pacing of the first 2 or 3 Tomb Raiders are what made me fall in love with them. Today those games feel like Dark Souls with a climbing mechanic a lot more than they do the reboot trilogy. For as big, loud and boisterous as these games have got, I've never once felt the same sense of caution and paranoia when making a risky jump. Now it's "Make a risky jump: HIT B HIT B HIT X HIT B. Lara says "Shit! I'm not going to make it!". Wiggle analog sticks. HIT X" and you made the jump.
A truly back-to-basics approach would be amazing at this point. We've seen Dark Souls and Nier blow up; people can handle a tough, "weird" and uncompromising game.
