Open-World Tomb Raider Reboot Details Leaked
Sounds promising, but when I saw "Tomb Raider open world" I was thinking of Lara getting stuck on some island and having to find tombs to raid for some purpose, with very vague clues as to where the tombs are. This survival thing sounds less interesting to me, but still cool.
Nothing will ever get me to give a flying fuck about Tomb Raider. You could develop a game that sprouted tits and sucked you off and I would still ignore it, if you called it "Tomb Raider". It has just completely worn itself away and devalued itself.
Sounds interesting even though I feel the series had already been rebooted just fine. Hating on Tomb Raider just seems like the cool thing to do regardless of the quality of the games. The last three of which, by the way, were pretty fucking good.
The concept sounds really interesting and doesn't seem to be too tar away from what Lara stands for like the Castlevania reboot. Obviously it needs to be handled with care but Lara Croft has always stood for exploration so a persistent open world to adventure in would fit the character nicely.
Even though they have been using the concept of 'myth & monsters' made real throughout the series I have always hated when the TR games go too deep into making the 'fantastic fantasy world' too real. Climbing over tombs, solving large mechanical puzzles, and exploring was always cool, but once they started tossing out monsters by the end game each time I was disappointed.
The island concept sounds cool, but you can already tell they are setting it in Japan so they can drag ‘stupid’ mythical monsters out of the ‘Japanese Mythology Closest’ it sounds like a recipe for disasters.
