[QUOTE=Rai;8254786]I'm sorry, but why are people upset about it being free to play? I don't understand the importance of it.

Maybe if it goes down well, they'll consider more?[/QUOTE]

Because a game being free to play tends to have pretty significant implications for how it's designed. If they can't get your money by charging upfront, they need to get it by selling you in-game items, in-game currency, experience points, etc. which will usually result in the game being designed in a way that actively pushes you towards making those in-game purchases. This will result in a greatly inferior gameplay experience because the game designers' primary objective wasn't to make a fun game, it was to make an exploitative game. (And there are exceptions. Some free-to-play games manage to straddle the line and provide an experience that's both fun and profitable but especially mobile free-to-play games are notorious for being exploitative and badly designed.)

They really try to get out of the way to do a proper Game with Classic Lara

[QUOTE=Tombraider95;8254797]Yeah I don't have high hopes if it's anything like this, but we'll see. I could be completely wrong. Need to see in game.[/QUOTE]
Indeed. I hope when Square Enix London engaged them, they have a more ambitious and different product in mind.

That's on the Google Play page of this studios other released mobile game. Could mean nothing, but I'm worried.

I'm praying. But they've gotta get money from somewhere if it's free.

Meh... glad they're acknowledging TR1 and classic Lara, but a mobile game instead of a full platform release? The dislikes on the video are wild... yikes!

OMG! It's Classic Lara! And the classic sounds!

I really dig the art style.

A mobile game though... a tad disappointing. But I'll reserve judgement until I see more of it.

I like to think they are paving the way for such game by doing something like this.

Literally give it to [B][I][U]ANYONE[/U][/I][/B] but crystal dynamics to give Lara's appearance justice.

She does! And if gives me LIFE that it's actual Classic Lara iconography and not LAU (that they've been trying to pass for Classic for years!)
