I see people comparing this to LC GO, and I must say - if Reloaded is anything like that - I'd totally be in for it. To me, LC Go was a perfect mobile Tomb Raider experience.
But was LC Go ever F2P?
And is it actually confirmed (and by who) that Reloaded will be F2P?

Yes, TR Reloaded is going to be a "free-to-play mobile arcade game".

[QUOTE=Raider8;8254838]Wowh...I'm so glad!!! finally some form of acknowledgement from Square. And it having the iconic classic lara. Just loved how it started with the duals. This makes me think things are being cooked for the 25th anniversary. OMG YASSS. :D[/QUOTE]

Experience through life is the best mentor.

This is the only way how SE/CD will be mentioning classic Lara.

They just tease us here and there, then when a new major game is announced, they will start with their famous line about Lara still going through adventures till she becomes the TR we all know and love.
They are cunning and smart in how they are advertizing their games IMO.

I think it will be a fun game anyhow, but I dont have faith about SE changing their direction regarding the major game on consoles and that dumb imposter will still be the hero of the major games that get the most attention...

IN other words, dragging it till it becomes old... oh wait. It did become old after the 2013 Reboot. Rise and Shadow, while still being very good games, were rather pointless from the story and character arc aspect.

Ah, ok - thanks.
Well, there's still hope the 'free to play' part is meant as an anniversary gift and doesn't necessarily dictate the play style (lootboxing and microtransactions).

I'd be completely fine with the left model being for the mobile game and then the right version being for the next gen remakes on PS4/5, Xbox, PC. :cln:

Sidenote that might be relevant, or totally not:

I posted 2 comments under the official trailer on Square Enix channel.

This link
[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3X1zFREqJc&lc=UgzyMyeRPov5ZOpqmup4AaABAg[/url] should direct you to a comment I posted as Point Man (my yt name)

but I can't see it on a anonymous browser, meaning it got shadowbanned. I can still see it if logged in, so they manually banned it for everyone else.
It wasn't automatic either because I always doublecheck whenever I comment on youtube. It was there, then it went poof.
And I'm not even banned from the channel because this other comment [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3X1zFREqJc&lc=Ugx6U5Z4JiTc7dA3Hfd4AaABAg[/url] is visible for everyone.
It simply said:

[quote]I dig the art style but... really bruh?
To you at SE Classic Lara only exists for stuff like this?[/quote]

But it's not like everyone else in the comments was being kind to them or anything, and I've seen older negative comments ... so why hide this one? :confused:

JoelCaesar 24-11-20 09:30

This looks like a fun little side game. I'll be intrigued about anything Tomb Raider at this point.

I'm really hoping this isn't all we are getting lol.

jackali 24-11-20 09:41

But weird that they copied the Funko Rock Candy Lara for the art style.

UroshUchiha 24-11-20 10:35

I am just glad they are gonna give us anything to bridge the gap until the next main game. So far I've had fun with most (all?) handheld TR games so let's hope this one delivers as well.

Wooxman 24-11-20 11:04

I really love the art style! I've been an advocate for a cartoony art style for a long time! And though I wanted something a little less cute and more along the lines of Fortnite, I'm really happy with this look. Hopefully the gameplay will be good and no idle game or one of those "collect and level up characters and tell them how to attack a group of enemies without actually being involved yourself" games like Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

What I find pretty weird are the fans who compare this to the announcement of Diablo Immortal and make the "Don't you guys have phones?" meme as if it was a comparable situation. Diablo Immortal was announced during a huge Blizzard event on stage with a big audience and at that point Diablo fans were waiting for a new main game for 6 years (8 years by now, Diablo 3 was released in 2012). Meanwhile, TR Reloaded was announced in a trailer, not during a huge event and not even with a long buildup. And it's just been 2 years since the last main TR game was released and it got DLCs until last year, so technically the last "full" TR game was released just a year ago. And this isn't even the first TR mobile game and so far the mobile entries in the series have been pretty good (aside from that last patch for Relic Run that broke the music), so I also don't get the concerns about that. But I guess that some TR fans can only create drama and never be happy about anything.

AshesBorn 24-11-20 11:16

I mean... it's a mobile game. Can't say I am particularly interested in this, but I am happy for everyone who is hyped to get some new TR stuff. :)

TRhalloween 24-11-20 11:20

It seems to be getting a more positive reception here than on the TR subreddit. How can anyone see the title "reloaded" and think it's the next mainline game?

[QUOTE=TRhalloween;8255335]It seems to be getting a more positive reception here than on the TR subreddit. How can anyone see the title "reloaded" and think it's the next mainline game?[/QUOTE]

The only reason I can think of is that they have very deliberately made sure 'Tomb Raider' means the reboot series, with everything after Underworld like the spin-offs and figures like the Totaku, Funko and Rock Candy ones are under the 'Lara Croft' name.

I'm probably reading too much into it but seeing this Lara under the Tomb Raider moniker feels right.

If it IS a remake using the same formula as Crash and Spyro, the question is:

Is this a remake of TR1 or TRA? Because they are two very different games, the latter being much more simple, boring, easy, repetitive (****ing ledge hopping), with missing content and no replay value.

If it's a remake of TRA, please don't even bother SquareEnix and just release Core's version instead.

Crystal said that’s why we have the Lara Croft series (only 2 games) so we can have original Lara and survivor Lara to appease all fans. Which, yeah, I totally respect. Obviously the Lara Croft games are arcade styled and lower budget, but I think it’s been beyond clear gamers are adamant survivor lara is very bland and doesn’t stand out. Crystal might think they found the (tired ass) formula for Tomb Raider games but that doesn’t mean they can’t spice Lara up more.

We were talking about the title. the 'reloaded' part.

People saw REloaded in the title and thought of remaster or remake. Before even clicking.
It's really not that deep.

We know nothing of this game, but with Crash/Spyro/MediEvil being successful remakes, it would be smart of Square to go for it.

A remaster maybe but not a follow up to Shadow. It's cartoony and guns were never the focus of TR.

But we do.

It's an arcade shooter.

Meaning, from the moment you start the game, things to shoot at come at you. Think bullet hell games, but slower.

It's kind of a minigame.

I didn't expect it though, I even wonder if Lara will ever talk in this game.

That's because she's actually been busy voicing Lara in the new remakes :admles:

But nah I only expect noises in this tbh.

Lara_Fan1 24-11-20 12:50

I agree, I’m expecting noises and grunts with the “speech” being reduced to text on the screen.

jackali 24-11-20 14:33

Just watched it again and found an odd inconsistency. Apologies if already pointed out.

The scion is designed like in TR1, but the logo uses a design closer to TRA.

this is the american TR logo from tr1 to chronicles... tr anniversary is completly diferent font and style.

No the shape of the scion behind font/title is closer to TRA rather than the one seen in the trailer. I'm okay with this slight difference. The logo looks fab.

I wonder if this game is the reason TR1 and 2 were removed from App Store, wich is odd. Also, her head design reminds me a lot to Laura Cruz early concepts, wich is lovely.

I loved the logo! It is the best logo since Chronicles.
The TR LAU logo was fine... using the movie logo.
But the reboot logo is so generic.

The ports were removed because of drama between the company which ported the games and Square Enix, and Square Enix implied that the ports weren’t up to their standards after removing them from the app stores.
