Open-World Tomb Raider Reboot Details Leaked

It seems (if this rumor is right) that it's the right direction for the Tomb Raider series. The previous game, while being good were not a bit dry.

I dig her new look. One can actually take her seriously.

#53 Posted by zityz (2366 posts) -

So are they going to name it The Legend of Lara: Raiding Princess? 

#54 Posted by buft (3409 posts) -

i'll definetly consider this if it ships with the coop

#55 Posted by tourgen (4568 posts) -

hopefully it isn't all above ground and there are tombs to raid and puzzles to solve.

You had me at "Weather Effects"
 
Seriously though, this sounds like a really good direction for the series. About time a game themed around exploration actually got back to...exploring

Sounds fantastic... on paper.

#59 Posted by SomeGuy890 (130 posts) -

I like the concept. 
Hopefully it's good.
#60 Posted by Dodongo (114 posts) -

Concept art sort of reminds me of Warrior Within...

#61 Posted by demonssoulfood (77 posts) -

cool

#62 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6649 posts) -

Sexy, sexy concept art.

#63 Posted by RichardLOlson (1904 posts) -

Sounds strange and interesting at the same time.

Why do I get the feeling they were playing Minecraft when they came up with this?
 
In fact why does the idea of a Tomb Raider/Minecraft mash up give me a boner?

Sounds very Arkham Asylum-y. Which makes me super glad.

#67 Posted by Hitchenson (4708 posts) -

Metroid styled Tomb Raider gameplay, set on a mysterious island with survival playing a key role? If the game actually was as good as that sounds, holy fuck, that would be wonderful. 

#68 Posted by Lazyaza (2287 posts) -

Would be kinda cool if Lara Croft finally became a respectable interesting character and was in a game that plays well and isn't rooted in design from 2 generations ago.

Open world Tomb Raider.... a.k.a MineCraft

#70 Posted by Levio (1798 posts) -

Lara Prime actually sounds like a really good idea.
 
Also the 2nd image looks a lot like Kate Austen from Lost.

#71 Posted by TwoOneFive (9787 posts) -

well count me interested. 

#72 Edited by iKANNIBAL (602 posts) -

Sounds awesome. Could just be the game that gets me back into Tomb Raider. I havn't played a Tomb Raider game since the one that involved you running around the mansion while being stalked by the pedophile looking butler chasing you around the house with wine, grunting and shit.  He was one creepy ass bastard D:

Open World Tomb Raider? I am down with that.

#74 Posted by Vinchenzo (6466 posts) -

Will she poop in real-time?

#75 Posted by dussssstin (38 posts) -

I'm excited for Tomb Raider again. They did it with the downloadable game too.

#78 Posted by BrainDamage101 (27 posts) -

Open world Tomb Raider? Hell yeah! Hopefully it's not complete garbage...

#79 Posted by Luck3ySe7en (245 posts) -

Holy crap, I'm excited.

#81 Posted by McGhee (6128 posts) -

What is this, the fourth reboot? I loved the first Tomb Raider, but all the rest went down hill from there. This game could be cool. Adding "open world" to anything makes me interested.

#82 Posted by CitizenJP (1148 posts) -

I love me a good open world game!

"  And we're not talking strictly food and drink survival here. According to the sheet, this island happens to be home to "mysterious enemies" that will hunt Lara as she apparently attempts..." 
 
Hmm... Lost you say?
#84 Posted by NTM (8268 posts) -

Sounds violent. Could it be mature? ;)

Uh, we're not talking about this particular feature right now, but you can look forward to more announcements concerning this as we get closer to E3.
#86 Posted by Roger778 (960 posts) -

The only Tomb Raider game I've ever played was Tomb Raider: Legend, and I didn't feel compelled to finish it.  It felt more James Bond, than an actual spelunking game, even though you did get to explore some Tombs in it. 
 
This actually sounds very intriguing, though.        
#87 Posted by Rayfield (2274 posts) -

No thank you.
#88 Posted by Choi (592 posts) -

Color me excited!

#89 Posted by Jackel2072 (2509 posts) -

one could hope.

#90 Posted by RagingLion (1378 posts) -

This is exactly the kind of game concept I want to see more of.  Open-worlds where there's lots of room more emergent encounters based upon loose objectives.

#91 Posted by Overwatch (296 posts) -

This fact sheet including those images leaked last year. I don't know why is this news again, there is nothing new in this info. It is exactly the same fact sheet from July 2009. 
 
But I am still super interested in this kind of Tomb Raider. Looking forward!

Second.  The only reboot they've done this far is when Crystal Dynamics took over.  Unless you count the recent downloadable game as a reboot, but it was pretty similar to the Legend series in a lot of ways and was more of a stand alone/spin off affair. 
 
Like someone else pointed out though, none of this information is new, it was all leaked last year.  Sounds pretty interesting though, while I liked the Legend series of games..  they suffered a lot from being in Uncharted's shadow.  Moving away from it more is definitely a good idea.

Grand Theft Lara.

#94 Posted by Wroth (8 posts) -
Red Dead Raider
#95 Posted by BombKareshi (1042 posts) -

Sounds like a pretty good idea to me, except for one thing... Did they have to make it "Tomb Raider"?
 
Not a fan of reboots, seriously. Work with what you've got!

#96 Posted by Maccoy (24 posts) -

hey this is the first tomb raider game im looking forward to in years...

#97 Posted by Rogonox (4 posts) -

My money's on the next Game Informer cover

#98 Posted by cutyoface (564 posts) -

This sound pretty good

#99 Posted by KillyDarko (1990 posts) -

Sounds good to me :)

#100 Posted by Fjordson (2555 posts) -

This actually sounds pretty damn cool.
 
Though I'm now fantasizing about an open world Tomb Raided from Rockstar. Oh man, gimme!
