Same level different play style. I read the siggraph report on tomb raider the other day. i didn't know they were using async compute for volumetric lighting, and BTAO which is quoted as greatly superior to HBAO. i wonder what they'll think of next.

please no stealth, stealth should be optional in games.

Ugh... that nasty looking clay style that is console-itis as we know it.

I'll wait for PC thanks.

Oh I would definitely like to see what's up with the PC version. I'm expecting though a lot of the content to be the same, with of course some sliders and uncapped stuff. some tessellation would be nice, the siggraph report though also mentions XBO will be using it as well in the game. The XBO version will have BTAO, async volumetric lighting and tessellation.


And I haven't seen many titles do rain slick surfaces without using speculars and normals. Specs and normals will be the practical option for rain surfaces this current gen.

Please go away! please just go away... weren't you happy with the action infested demo of the same level before?

This video should shut up the haters who think TR has turned into a murder simulator that supposedly does not fit with the new Lara.

better than previous game, but that enemy ai is retarded ;p

That video is not even keeping up with 30fps in many places.
That kind of Aliasing+unstable 30fps in a featured Xbox One title, nothing more to say about it's hardware.

The enemy AI looks dumb as hell, when she threw that bottle so the guard walks over to it he would have clearly seen her because she walks out he is infront of her just about,.

Also I see that specially for the xbox ones poor hardware so we do not see the ultra bad textures on a lot of the ingame items they made them all shiny and wet lol like the trees and trunks outside they look to have a jelly like texture to them.

Thank god its only a timed exclusive lol
As if Microsoft things this coming out first on xbox one will sell more consoles lol

What the hell GamerSyde? I thought this site was supposed to be for the best quality videos, not some frame drop every 5 seconds shit. YouTube version is better than this.

Tomb Raider games used to be magnificent and Iconic ... But after 2013 I can't take this game seriously. will we see a real dual weild'n pistol and sexy Bad ass lara who has never had an annoying voice AGAIN? Or we stuck with this female Nathan drake forever?

I think her voice is sexy as well as the character. She's nothing like Nathan Drake, not even a little bit. Dual pistols, I agree with, I want them back too, but if they deliver a great game, I can't say I'll miss them.

900p or very bad AA.
Commented on 2015-08-22 17:06:19
Yeah there's some distracting aliasing and it would be nice if they improve that, same as the framerate in some parts. They have some time left, it'll be ok i expect.

there is nothing sexy about that voice brother, believe me I am a huge fan of TR but you have to accept after Uncharted they've changed the course for good ,

Bye bye. Have fun on youtube.
I had no troubles with the video. The only thing I see was that the framerate of the game is not smooth.

And it's still an action orientated Rambo simulator. Only now she has the added bonus of being Solid Snake, should we feel like it. Yeah, still misses the point entirely that made the originals so good to play. It'll still have shit linear level design, and ridiculous hand holding elements. I wonder where Lara got her training from? She's better than a Seals Team 6 member. Still has terrible eye sight and balance, though, because she keeps falling off of shit.

I know its suppose to be stealth but its impossible to move in that type of environment making as little noise as her, they need to redesign the environments to make it realistically possible to get passed the guards (who are way to dumb) visually and audibly, (eg jumping on the tin roofs without making any noise, impossible) they need to make things make realistic audible sound like rustling through foliage and jumping on the roof etc. PS. I hate to troll more but zip-lining without gloves, that would be so painful she would realistically scream like hell.

sorry I didn't mean to piss off anyone, I thought its a stealth mission, similar to the one in The Order.
Commented on 2015-08-23 01:28:15
From what im seeing this is probably in response to expand the game from the simple shooter and this would give an option of stealth.
Still i don't couldn't care less about this casul shooter loved the old TR games though.

The AI and enemy defense feels like a lesser difficulty was selected for the walkthrough. I actually rarely judge AI from developer walthroughs, not unless it's being played by a dev that normally plays at recommended or higher settings. the performance dips in this video are way more noticeable than in the other playthrough. probably a difference in the build or video maybe? don't know.

The shitty AA and bad FPS do say a lot about console hardware, thats true. And the rest of the game also looks ugly. I was looking forward for this game. I am out now.
Commented on 2015-08-23 05:19:22
It doesn't look colorful that's for sure, thanks to the lighting engine. I'm curious to see how well the game does. lots of games have been adopting QTEs as the norm, all of the videos i've seen of this game has gameplay set aside.

A good story is always nice, good for setting the mood, but the it's the gameplay that's integral. and they're showing multiple styles of playing which is great because we now know everything won't be locked into scripted paths or gameplay preference. Lots of reviewers are cracking down on how much "game" is being put out into games.

So just do not play the game and I'm sure no one will bother about your opinion ...
