I'm sure we'll see all the content we want when the game is released in March. :p

Lukass 27-09-12 14:47

Like they don't remember what they said and promised.

larafan25 27-09-12 14:47

If there are still moves and items we haven't seen when the game comes out, I will literally have TRF on as I play for the first time, and freak out about everything.

edit: OMG I can't wait to see this place when the game comes out, we'll know the ending and talk about it (in spoilers tags)!

tampi 27-09-12 15:48

I don't know if I'm ready because that will mean waiting a few years until the next game.

Reminds me of my Karl interview from youtube!1

edit:

How funny is it that the Camilla one mentions porn and Karl's said alcohol, I can't believe people didn't find this one funny...

This always makes me laugh! So random, yet so... accurate. O_O

Lukass 27-09-12 16:21

Look at that. It looks like she's hanging on a rock. Could be the climbing. But she's weirdly hanging, using just one hand, almost looks like she's about to fall down...

I also see a big pagoda in the distance...

larafan25 27-09-12 16:25

She's falling or floating, as her other arm is up too.

I like that she's way up in a mountain, but I feel like we won't actually be able to go up in the mountains.

tomekkobialka 27-09-12 16:59

^ Hmm...I can imagine some tomb/cave entrance up a mountain face, and in order to get there Lara needs to complete a "climbing" level - like a very vertical level on the edge of the mountain with a lot of climbing involved. :o

I also guess some of the hub 'connections' will take us through the mountains, like a super-cool and exotic mountain trail. That kind of thing has so much potential IMO! Just imagine, meandering through caves, old temple ruins, natural arches...that would be, like, SOOOOOO epic.

But yeah, I don't think we'll be able to walk away in any direction we want. :( But who knows, if they put more effort into a smaller area of the island, that would be better in some ways...

Guys, is there a date for an official release of a demo?

We still don't know if there's going to be a public demo, if that's what you mean. Anyway, there's just like 5 months until the game is out, so that makes it doubtful even more to happen.

Jill Lover 27-09-12 17:23

So that means we won't get a public demo until next year?

...why?

I've known most demos to come out a month or a few weeks before the games release.

No idea, they never hinted anything about a public demo, not even for the next year, but It would be kinda silly to release it after the game launches and not before. Either way, we will get the game pretty soon, but AFAIK, there's no demo than the ones they are presenting all over the world.

Jill Lover 27-09-12 17:30

Thank you Evan.C! I hope we get a public demo soon! Can't really wait to play it!!

larafan25 27-09-12 17:31

I'D PLAY a demo forever.

I'd love one. ._.

It's a pity than here in Argentina we can't get any showcase or whatever to play Tomb Raider, that would be super cool if someday happens. And you welcome!

Jill Lover 27-09-12 17:39

Indeed. It looks like those videos we've been seeing so far, are from a longer public demo, maybe they release it someday soon. Our country is unable to afford events like these. :(

Still nailing down the exact date for the second one! It's being edited at the moment, but we've got to establish the right release window.

This was posted back on 21 August.

larafan25 27-09-12 17:41

I so knew it. :(

Evan C. 27-09-12 17:47

Does anyone know how many Episodes are in total?

tomee 27-09-12 17:48

you mean final hours?

lcroft_lc 27-09-12 17:51

Possibly four, a maximum of five in my guess. :)

lol, at this rate 3 is my best bet.

lcroft_lc 27-09-12 17:58

Sorry for posting few off-topics in this post. :o

Since Far Cry 3 is being set on an island and it has some similar stuffs like Tomb Raider, here is some screens from Far Cry 3 Eurogamer 2012 stage demo:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=gW2NlUmNbqc


http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a...ookIslands.jpg
The island of Far Cry 3 is called Rook Islands.

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a...s/StartMap.jpg
That's how the map starts off above - Blank.

Far Cry 3 has territory control stuffs.
http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a...ostilearea.jpg
The red area is populated with the enemy - dangerous areas (uncleared)


http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a...etakenarea.jpg
Green is safe areas that have already been taken


http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a...ingmedical.jpg
There is CRAFTING in Far Cry 3, and it has the following topics.
  • Medical
  • Hunting
  • Combat
  • Exploration
Those 4 choices above have their own individual items list of things which can be made.


I hope some bigger images of these pics below filter through.
http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a.../newimage2.jpg

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a.../newimage4.jpg

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a.../newimage3.jpg

http://i880.photobucket.com/albums/a.../newimages.jpg

The last one looks like a Tomb.

larafan25 27-09-12 17:59

I'm pretty sure we're just getting a casual action adventure games with the context of an island, hunting, scavenging, etc...

Context. :/

Evan C. 27-09-12 18:00

There's a lot of tombs to explore on Far Cry 3, and there's an excluside DLC from Assassin's Creed 3 that's about a tomb in Mexico, and looks amazing. You can clearly see the graphical difference between FC3 and TR *_*

larafan25 27-09-12 18:01

TR seriously needs to go open world in the next game.

It doesn't need to be Far Cry, but it needs to ditch the cinematic Uncharted stuff and go open world.

Evan C. 27-09-12 18:03



Looks like fun. And IMO, the next TR is going to be an Open World, with day/night cycle, weather system and bigger than the island of Just Cause 2. That would be a MEGA-BOMB.

CD had a great opritunity to make this game TR2013 open world since open world would have fit very very nicely. I don't understand why they didn't...

larafan25 27-09-12 18:05

^They didn't because they couldn't make it Uncharted and open world at the same time, apparently. ._.

They cared too much about story.

I would actually shake and cry and pee my pants.

What I want from all these other games like AC, is how they play. TR feels like a mashed up bunch of cutscenes and cinematic moments. I just want to do stuff, with the mechanics, on my own.

Have you seen FC3's PC specs?
http://www.tombraiderforums.com/show...&postcount=150
Its very high. I doubt TR graphics will reach near it, even though its still 5 months away.

In order to make the plot more linear and since it's going to be the foundation of Lara's background, they needed open sections but with lineality to show the progress of her inner development. And open world was thinked but replaced by hubs, wich offered the "Open World feeling" but with the right lineality to not going off focus. So IMO, Open World will be the main feature of next TR.

larafan25 27-09-12 18:08

I keep getting this feeling of "blue" and "caves" for the next game.

I really hope so that open world will be present in the next game. Though they could have still told the story in this TR2013 even if it was open world..

OMG me too. I imagine a big jungle full of different areas, like mountains, caves, a big and blue coastal, waterfalls, dark and deep forests...the dynamic of some places changing because of the weather, like a grown river cutting pass to a section, or the rising of the sea level not allowing us to enter a cave (or having to doing that swimming) and of course, hundreds of hidden tombs all over the place to explore like Assassin's Creed II secret tombs. OMG OMG OMG someone give me a hug
