Did we get to see any loadscreens yet? I know back in 2011 when Meagan presented the game to some people in different countries (including germany) we got to see the loadscreen of the game with Lara talking in the background about what recently happened to her etc. Kind of like an audiolog.

I hope its still in there

Peep Show 07-02-13 20:32

Mikky gurl shows us the receipts.

Mikky 07-02-13 20:33

^ Lol, what do you mean? Just watch the video. :p

[QUOTE=LarasFan;6640492]But if you get to choose chapters, and have already got Laura upgraded to the max, then wouldn't that seems pretty much like New Game+? [SIZE="1"]Final fantasy 13-2 much?[/SIZE][/QUOTE]

I guess if you replay a chapter, your gear and upgrades will go back to the level they were when you first reached that point in the game. Going back to the beginning of the game with everything upgraded wouldn't make much sense. :p

[QUOTE=HAHA LOOOL XD;6640493]Looks like options to me :confused:[/QUOTE]

There's an Options option and there's also a Chapter Select one. Look again.

Peep Show 07-02-13 20:35

I need my glasses, I see "downloadable content" though.

EDIT: found it! YAY

This doesn't make much sense. It can easily be glitched sometimes in my opinion. Therefor I still believe in new game +

Peep Show 07-02-13 20:38

Look under "New Game"

I only see 'Continue', 'New Game', 2 blocked options, 'Options' and another blocked option separated from the rest that could be MP.

edit: ^ Oooooooooh I see.

Soul 07-02-13 20:38

There won't be New Game +. I guess you just CAN'T return to areas with just the gear you had, when you first explored the area. You don't HAVE to use it though, so it doesn't make such a difference. :)

Ahh well - I take everything back. Thanks for sharing, Peep Show :)

Yeah, it's right under the New Game option and it's greyed-out, which makes it a little hard to see. :p

Believe what you want, but it won't change facts.

So it's pretty much like what they said about FF13-2. We won't be having new game plus, but you can call time traversal new game plus cause you can visit locations and chapter when you're maxed out :p

Really? Why do dat?

I mean, ok, they said that there won't be an option to restart the game, like it was in the next-gen versions of Underworld but A. that would suck and B. haven't they said that we will have to go back to places after we gear up, upgrade to open up new areas? If we miss something on our playthrough what's the point of going back if we don't have our upgrades?

LNSNHGTDS 07-02-13 20:45

Maybe it's the magical door to the world of Narnia with a rest stop in the offices of Square Enix.

I think it will be something like a link to the DLC stuff? It says downloadable content right above, sure but maybe there's something more special there?

Just to be clear, there will be a option to start a new game, just not with all your upgrades.

The whole point of Chapter Select is to replay and go back to a segment of the game, the way you were when you first reached it. The whole purpose is to replay, whether it's because you want to experience the story again from that point or to do things differently with your weapons and gear. It's that simple.

As for revisiting areas, you can do that without Chapter select. You have the fast travel feature for that, which allows you to teleport to previously revisited areas and explore them.

Peep Show 07-02-13 20:56

Honestly I love it all, we have fast travel + chapters selection, that's all I asked for! :jmp:

LarasFan 07-02-13 20:59

It stills sounds very weird having Chapter Select and the upgrade system... Bugs/glitches are gonna exist for sure...

HAHA LOOOL XD 07-02-13 20:59

I hated how we didn't have chapter select in TRU. This is great :jmp:

Yeah, I figured that there will be an option to re-start the game.

Oh, so, after we beat the game, we will just roam the island? I just thought that we would be stuck with Chapter Select :p :o ...!

So, it will be like Replay Level, more or less?

JsotoTRSaga 07-02-13 21:11

[QUOTE=HAHA LOOOL XD;6640565]I hated how we didn't have chapter select in TRU. This is great :jmp:[/QUOTE]

Actually we sort of had a chapter select option in the load game option and also a new game+ option. Just play treasure hunt and if you have found all the relics and your health bar is already blue (upgraded full) if you selet the new game option you can start the game with all of the already picked up treasures and relics as well as your upgraded health.

Mikky 07-02-13 21:11

[QUOTE=LarasFan;6640564]It stills sounds very weird having Chapter Select and the upgrade system... Bugs/glitches are gonna exist for sure...[/QUOTE]

Yeah, I see what you mean. Maybe all our upgrades are lost when we re-select a chapter? That sounds crap, though. :/ I think it's best until we see for ourselves how it's really going to work or else we could drive ourselves crazy thinking about it too much. :p

Yes, more or less.

By the way, what I'm saying is speculation; it's not like I've played the game myself or CD have said for themselves. They could be doing something different with the Chapter Select. But it's a simple feature that most games these days have, it's just logical that the way I described is right.

Roaming the island after finishing the game is definitely confirmed, though.

yeah im confused.. will lara roam the island once the game is over then? i hope so

She will since you can re-explore to unlock previously locked areas and stuff, but it doesn't mean Lara will stuck on the island, it's off-plot thinguie.

Valentino 07-02-13 21:27

Thank god for that! I always hate not being able to play that cool part of a game, instead having to start from the very beginning. Its daft that Arkham City never had it.

Evan C. 07-02-13 21:33

That's something thar Red Dead Redemption has too. I would love if this series turn to that direction.

You guys can't complain, my Xbox 360 is dead since a couple days :( The only thing I can do is hoping finding a job and getting a good PC, but anyway, I won't be able to play the game like on 3 or 4 months, and that if I am lucky.

:(

pTURKEYq 07-02-13 22:14

Did you guys ever notice Lara in that scene? :confused:
Are they [COLOR="LemonChiffon"]wanted her to see Sam dying, or eventually she is the next one to sacrifice[/COLOR]?
