E3: Rise of Tomb Raider trailer

Microsoft's press conference was the stage for Square-Enix's big announcement: Rise of Tomb Raider to be released at the end of 2015. Trailer inside.

Sequel to Critically Acclaimed and Top Selling Action-Adventure Coming Holiday 2015

REDWOOD CITY, CA (June, 9 2014) – Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider® series, Rise of the Tomb Raider ® . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.

In her first adventure, Lara Croft® was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.

“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix. “Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty Survival-Action style.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider builds upon the formula that made Tomb Raider a success, and features the return of Camilla Luddington as Lara Croft. Camilla will take character performance to new heights as Lara pushes herself beyond human limits and is confronted with what it means to become a hero. Once again, Crystal Dynamics is proud to have the award-winning author Rhianna Pratchett as a key member of the writing team, helping craft a story that delves into Lara’s inner turmoil and motivations in this critical second act of her journey.

Her face looked wack again like the 'next gen' additions. She looked best in the PC version. Hopefully someone mods her original face into this for PC.

I hope this will turn out as good as the previous one, which was quite amazing. I wish they would include a hard mode where you could only use the bow, it would be great. Playing it with weapons takes away part of the fun.

Yea this really annoys me. I played the 360 version and she doesn't look like the same Lara. What's worse is her new face looks far too generic.

I was honestly hoping they'd get a new voice actress. I hated it when it released, i hated it in the definitive edition, and i still hate it now.

Yawn! The first one was one of the most pretentious experiences in a game I've had. So overrated. This one looks like it's heading in the same direction. Might as well call it "Tomb Raider Begins: The Dark Lara Rises." Maybe if there are actually some, er, tombs to raid in this one, then it might perk my interest a little.

TR reboot was a great game. It's evident when the biggest fault people can find with it is Lara's face or voice or some dumb shit like that. I'm eager to play TR2

What are talking about? The island in the reboot was like one giant big tomb with plenty of secrets, artifacts and hidden caverns. It felt like Tomb Raider to me.

About the game

What's up?

    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (2 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (2 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Even though they messed up they tried to do some really cool thing with AI that when it worked it was incredible (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The stuff I enjoyed most in Uncharted was the puzzle solving stuff. The gunplay got tedious, fast. (2 Hours ago)
