Dote 05-05-21 19:20

Where do you find info on this game? I have played it a while and even used some cash but I can't even find any official posts from the devs. I'm in Sweden but there's no update for me yet!?

Mikky 05-05-21 19:23

Oh, thanks for that. Just out of curiosity, where did you find that?

I'm not really sure if I understand the differences in the way you obtain the relics but I guess for someone who already has all of them, it doesn't really matter :p

Interesting how they didn't fix the lucky wheel/money exploit :pi:

UroshUchiha 05-05-21 19:28

@Dote I used the VPN to Sweden to get my update so not sure why you don't have it.

I get all my info about this game from their official Discord server.

Dote 05-05-21 19:33

Oh okey that's weird. I hope it gets updated tomorrow maybe it's some android version thing. Haha I feel old discord is something my pupils use. I never even thought of going looking there.

UroshUchiha 05-05-21 19:41

The release schedule is apparently done in batches or something. The community manager said that they released the update initially to 20% of the players. I was using Thailand VPN at the time, had no update. Swapped to Sweden and the update was there.

As for Discord when you open the games Account Settings tab, you have Discord listed as Social Media which you can click to directly go there.

And as for Artifacts I think that with this update we can get the rest of them as well now, the higher chapter we play, the more chance of them to drop. First three apparently can only drop in chapters 1 - 5 and Owl can only drop in 6 - 10, so basically only in 6 cause that's the last one at the moment. That's how I understood it.

jackali 06-05-21 15:19

No matter what method I've tried, I've been unable to get this working via either the play store or aurora, so I'll just have to wait until it appears elsewhere.

Mikky 06-05-21 16:24

When you say "working", do you mean to update the game? It stopped appearing on the Aurora store for me even when I was using a VPN, but then I realized the store has a tab to view existing installed apps on your device and you can view the game page that way, with the option to update the game if needed. Hopefully that helps.

----

Was playing the game today and to my surprise, a new relic piece randomly appeared in a puzzle room. I must have completely misunderstood the patch notes then - all those relic pieces in the list are actually obtainable now. You just have to be lucky and hope they appear in the later stages

UroshUchiha 06-05-21 16:48

Don't spend your shards on upgrading those for now. They released an announcement earlier today. All relics were supposed to reset with this update cause of the changes, but they didn't.

"Hey, everyone! We had to stop the roll out on 50% as we are trying to fix the Relics reset. Thank you for being patient with us."

Mikky 06-05-21 17:38

Whaaaaat? For real? Will they at least refund us the shards and coins?

UroshUchiha 06-05-21 18:20

[QUOTE=Mikky;8296636]Whaaaaat? For real? Will they at least refund us the shards and coins?[/QUOTE]

They did say that people will be compensated and that they should check the in game mail for that once it happens. We'll see. I was hoarding shards ever since I heard that the relics will be revamped and reset (known for a month cause I am on their Discord). And yesterday when the update happened and they didn't reset I just upgraded a bunch of them so yeah.

I've never been able to get the game through either option, and have had to install it manually. Can't seem to find any updates via Aurora no matter which region I seem to be in. Can find it through my installed apps, but no updates. Definitely not the latest version.

TRF 10-05-21 15:54

What is the latest version as of today?

Is that the released version on march 25th: 0.7.5

jackali 10-05-21 21:44

Hope to get it someday somehow.

Edit: Managed to update the game.

Finding that the daily dash doesn't update properly now, so while it was next to impossible to achieve before, it's now actually impossible as I do the action required without it registering.

Mikky 11-05-21 12:39

Found a piece of concept art that's kind of hidden away

Only appears in the Daily Dash screen when you're offline. Makes me think about whether there will be a story on the full release. Anyway, just thought it was nice.

charmedangelin 11-05-21 22:49

I can't get back into reloaded, I've tried, but I always get bored and end up walking away from it.

Mobile games like this just don't hold my attention for very long. Lara Croft Go though, was an exception of course. :p

andre_costa 12-05-21 17:22

Is it true that this game is getting release this week on ios? Or at least soft launched?

Mikky 12-05-21 17:26

According to the devs on Discord, yes - in Thailand. But I do wonder how easy it will be for others to play it. Do VPNs work on iOS? I've never had an Apple device so I wouldn't know

JuditePrince12 13-05-21 00:04

The love classic theme in Reloaded. This should be present in all TR games from here on out.

Brendanlovesu1 18-05-21 12:48

Ed has posted pics from a studio, Lara will be having a VO

She's such a dream to work with, honestly - though it was impossible to get a decent photo in a tiny sound booth. Hope you'll all enjoy her vocal stylings as #LaraCroft in #TombRaiderReloaded! -

JuditePrince12 18-05-21 22:25

I'm ready to see what Reloaded has in store :)
Also is that Shelley Blonde? 👀

Mikky 19-05-21 02:35

That actually looks like a lot of dialogue judging from that page. It's kinda weird how much they're putting into this game but it does make me more excited and curious

[QUOTE=JuditePrince12;8299136]I'm ready to see what Reloaded has in store :)

Oh god, could you imagine? She's my favourite classic VA and I always wished she came back for one more game. I mean, do I want it to be a mobile game? No, but it would be better than nothing

I think Ed said they're spending a hefty amount of the soundtrack alone for the game. They made a rendition of the classic theme which to me sounds like its mixed in with the reboot. (It just sounds so good) And Shelley is my personal fav classic Lara as well. I would like all the VA's to come back to the series in some way too!

Mikky 20-05-21 14:10

I thought it would be kind of fun if we all shared our stat screens and showed off what gear we have. Here's mine:

[url=https://postimg.cc/hf1Vp4Vx][img]https://i.postimg.cc/hf1Vp4Vx/Screenshot-20210520-150235-TRReloaded.png[/img][/url]

I'm mostly curious to see if anyone else has any Epic gears and weapons, and find out the struggle they went through to get them :p

saqueadordt 20-05-21 19:27

I haven't been so lucky :( but I'm having fun :D

Mikky 20-05-21 19:50

Hey, that's not bad at all. I wish I had a rare Shotgun - or any rare weapon that's not the pistols

charmedangelin 20-05-21 20:19

[QUOTE=Mikky;8299609]Hey, that's not bad at all. I wish I had a rare Shotgun - or any rare weapon that's not the pistols[/QUOTE]

That's why I don't play this, I never got any weapons from the boxes. And the boxes are cumbersome to get. At least in archero, the original game made it easy to get new weapons and upgrade them. Archero was nowhere near grindy and cumbersome as Reloaded is.

JuditePrince12 21-05-21 00:44

I'm confused...if Reloaded is being soft launched in different places, why is there still voice lines and other things being done? When it officially launches in the U.S., will there be some sort of massive update to change the game dramatically?

Mikky 21-05-21 01:58

Well, of course? That drastic update being version 1.00, that will be the official, full launch of the game, that everyone will have access to, and obviously there will be features included that are not yet implemented. You should just see this "soft launch" as a sort of open beta, where a few players are testing the game and the devs are gathering feedback. It's pretty routine stuff for mobile games these days.

I imagine the core gameplay will largely remain the same, but with the introduction of voice acting, we can guess that there will be a story of some kind, so expect a lot of things to at least feel and look different

JuditePrince12 21-05-21 20:52

If that's the case, it's weird that they wouldn't just call it an open beta. Does this mean that they won't use play testers anymore at Square?

TombRaider_Ed 22-05-21 08:50

Hopefully I can clear it up a little bit. In terms of terminology, here's what each type of 'launch' means, as the platforms are managed very differently:

CONSOLE / PC TERMINOLOGY
- Closed Beta = play for a limited time through invite only, such as being on an ambassador program or having to apply for a spot to play early
- Open Beta = anyone has access anywhere in the world but understands that what they're playing is for a limited time to help with technical stability or balancing
- Early Access = play the game early and have access to it ongoing, likely paid to help a team fund the remainder of development as well as get vital data about stability and gameplay balancing

MOBILE TERMINOLOGY
- Soft launch = a controlled rollout across geographical territories of an early version of the game that, whilst it remains live until it launches globally, you may experience progress resets as the game is still undergoing major updates. The territories are categorised so that you're getting the first launch out to low priority countries where there are fewer people wanting to play, so those that do play are helping test technical infrastructure, then the next wave are higher value players who will likely stick with the game so you're testing game balancing and putting new features in (where Reloaded is now so all our updates at the moment come with balancing changes to make sure it's not too grindy) then the final stage before worldwide launch is where you have all your launch features in and you're doing an overall balance from progression to difficulty to events etc. Then we move to....
- Hard / Global Launch = the game has all the desired features in and it's balanced and ready for the most valuable players, such as fans of the franchise and markets that play alot of mobile games (US, UK, most of Europe.) We hold back some features until this point to make sure there's something exciting to look forward to when we release.
Live Ops = once we've gone global, we then have a multi-year plan for new features, outfits, events, levels etc that we work on to make sure we're constantly improving the game and adding cool new stuff that makes you want to stick with us.

Hope that clarifies things :D

Mikky 22-05-21 10:30

Thanks for explanation. Hopefully the global launch is not too far off now. August-September, if I had to guess

charmedangelin 22-05-21 18:17

Is City of Vilcabamba where the game gets BS? Waves upone waves of enemies, barely doing any damage.

Mikky 23-05-21 16:19

To my surprise, I got another Scion piece while replaying a level :confused: I understand that we could collect more parts of the relics after the latest update, but I never imagined that included the Scion too; I thought they'd be saving them for the end of the chapters. So we can complete the Scion before even getting to Egypt? What will we be collecting for the rest of the game then? Just other relics? Unless , of course, they're planning another "wipe" for existing players on the full launch and changing things up.

You can now finish all 4 relics that are in the game. The change note maybe wasn't clear but that's the point. Relic pieces are no longer hard coded to a level, you can get any piece in any level. It's random and the higher level you do more of the chances you have for it to drop.

The first 3 can only drop from 1-5 (Doing Tomb 5 allegedly gives you higher chances). And so far Owl only drops in Tomb 6 cause We don't have 7, 8, 9 and 10. I'm missing only the last piece of the Owl to have them all.

Mikky 24-05-21 12:01

Right. I just really thought the Scion would be different as it's so tied to the game's lore. As for the Owl, so the drop rate for those pieces must be super low on St Francis Folly then, because I've played that level numerous times and still haven't seen another one. I'm not too bothered though, the benefits are nothing special 🙃

Yeah I had this corrected when I realised the Scion was being used in this way - it will be replaced with another relic and the Scion will go back to being a narrative element in an upcoming update! :D

If you submit your feedback on Discord (I haven't been active in it yet so apologies if you've already submitted this) about the balancing it will help the team target this in a future update. I found in Vilcabamba once you've had a few weapon upgrades it gets a lot easier, but I've been playing the game a lot so I'm not a good judge of balance for sure!

Mikky 25-05-21 17:56

Hey, Ed. I don't use Discord and I was wondering if you could answer some questions for me here; just a couple of things I've been wondering about for a while.

Sometimes, a green or red border appear on the upgrades from the angel or devil - what do they mean?

Purple and gold upgrade ores are sometimes dropped by enemies, with their description being that they're used to upgrade more powerful equipment, but they don't appear anywhere in our inventory, and well, the basic ores are used to upgrade everything. Are these planned to be used in a later update?

And I think that's it. Answer whenever you can, there's no rush

charmedangelin 01-06-21 22:36

So, TR Reloaded is broken.
