Rise Of The Tomb Raider
Lara Croft returns in Rise of the Tomb Raider, the follow-up to the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider. Rise of the Tomb Raider is a scheduled Xbox exclusive, coming out first on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and in the following year for the PC and PS4. The game follows Lara Croft, heroine of the Tomb Raider games, as she sets out on her first tomb raiding expedition to discover the secret of immortality.
One year after the events of Tomb Raider, Lara Croft is researching an explanation for the events that she saw transpiring in Yamatai and stumbles upon her own father’s research into the lost city of Kitezh and the promise of immortality. Croft sets off for Syria in order to uncover the tomb of the Prophet of Constantinople and discover the secret of immortality. Later in her quest, Croft finds herself traveling to Siberia as she further delves into her father’s research, aided by her friend Jonah. Along the way, Croft finds herself battling both the environment and its many ravages, while also dealing with human foes, as in the previous game in the series.
Borrowing mainly from its predecessor, Rise of the Tomb Raider combines platforming with action-adventure to illustrate Lara’s harsh journey. The game features puzzle platforming sections and forces players to use improvised weapons and gadgets to progress through the story, enabled through a crafting system that allows players to create items by scavenging materials from the game’s harsh environment, such as plants and animals. The game notably features a new day-and-night cycle, as well as a weather system that human and animal characters will react to. Lara can also swim in this installment of the game, which can be used in a tactical fashion. Combat sees a revamp, allowing for more stealthier tactics to be implemented. Lara can now use the environment to confuse her enemies, hide in trees or behind bushes, and evade combat entirely by using stealthy routes instead of more obvious ones. Lara’s pistol and climbing axe make their return, and are accompanied by a hunting knife used for sneak attacks.
