I seriously keep looking at that old concept art now and damn CD for making her so beautiful in that. She looks beautiful now but she's not a shade on that old concept art imo.

Gamd1011 13-02-13 22:22

I like the old concept better. :(

I think thats the Weapons DLC pack they promoted with the Survival and Collectors Edition. And now that I look at it:

A pistol = Silverballer
A shotgun = Agency SPS 12
A rifle = HX AP-15

Cool that they are out of Hitman though! :D

FearEffect 13-02-13 22:24

Whatever, it's just a concept art....





I WANT IT IN HD RIGHT NOW !

I still can't get over how gorgeous the left one is. I'm trying to figure out whats different. Are they the same? Or has she got fuller lips on the right?

I think she unquestionably looks a lot better in the left, but are we certain which is final yet or?

LENGuin 13-02-13 22:27

I prefer the one on the right personally

I'd like the left one to be the final one :/ Or they should save the model face for the next game. The left one does look like the in-game model though. The lips, the eyes.

I think the difference is that the left one looks a bit older, that's why they ended up with the right lara concept :).

ok, each to his own, but i think its obvious that the left, natalie portman look a like lara is much more beautiful ! and its not because she's cleaner or anything! the final lara has this tomboyish face with that fugly hair, i just cant even describe how mad i am now. just tell me the reason why go with the fugly one? :O

Gamd1011 13-02-13 22:32

I'm starting to get that sad Legend-y feeling, you know... when they cut all that **** out?

LaraDuh 13-02-13 22:33

The left one looks more in-game in the hair department. And i dont like her lips in the left one D:

The left is old, the right is newer.

Visual Works came in later on in development so then they replaced the face with their one and that's what we have now.

FearEffect 13-02-13 22:37

Confirmed, it's a very old concept.

Itís a shame. I in fact favour Lara to the left.

Exactly.

The left one is a concept, an early version. I assume it was sent to VisualWorks as the CGI mode is almost exactly the same if you compare it to the 360 head turn released on Tuesday.
On the right is just the GI cover render pasted on the body of the concept.

More interesting is, that there is one more version of that concept that seems like a middle point between thede two.

FearEffect 13-02-13 22:41

I really hope it will be on the artbook.

Apparently they aren't going to release the full version of this artwork.

Rai 13-02-13 23:23

Looking at those concepts, the earlier one actually looks more like her in game self, slightly more so. I do prefer it to the one they used. At the end of the day, it is just concept art. The in game model is the important one and she looks great imo. It's obvious Cd tried to incorporate some of what VisualWorks did for her trailer model.

Tear 14-02-13 00:28

Hm... they're both gorgeous but, yes, the one on the left does look more like in-game Lara.:)

The left one is a mix between the early concept face and the face from the Visual Works Render.

Shark_Blade 14-02-13 01:13

Itís a line from Natla in TR1.

It means too late to abort the whole thing, since the game will be out in like 2 weeks time.

Weemanply109 14-02-13 01:13

^It's what Natla said in TR1. :p

EDIT: Bitch, Shark_Blade said it before me. >_>

Freaking hell, where does the Lara and shark pic came from?

I'm gonna get it if it's an alternate cover or steelbook just because it has a shark on it.

Weemanply109 14-02-13 01:36

It's fan art I found on the Tomb Raider Tumblr page. :o

Pretty damn good fanart tbh. :tmb:

TippingWater 14-02-13 02:30

Wow. Just wow. People complained that Lara's character was pretty much a relic and had no place in games, and now that people are actually drawing her as an actual human being rather than a talking blow up doll with guns and a posh accent, everyone decides that they're ruining the franchise. I loved the games as a child and even I could tell it held a bad image for women, regardless of how smart of strong Lara was.

In survival situations, people are critically injured and can die from the things they put themselves through to live an extra hour for help that may or may not come. Nathan Drake hopped onto a moving train, was shot, passed out for a few minutes, climbed out of a train ON A ****ING CLIFF, climbed some more, shot some dudes and then finally passed out again, and was able to live and go right back to kicking ass. People see Lara getting ONE splinter, and automatically it’s red flagged for some reason.

When in a situation you’re stranded from civilization and everyone you know is dead and have no way of escaping, and the only people that are capable of surviving are trying to kill you, there is not a single human being that WOULDN’T be scared in this situation. It’s not much of a remake if you still draw Lara as a killing machine and can snap necks like Kit Kat bars; a real person is going to be scared out of their ****ing minds and learn to be strong on their own.

People preached and begged for the game to change and for Lara to change to, and the story and the way they carry Lara in this game is excellent. You are actually focused on playing the game (a really well made and gorgeous game) rather than the ass that's in front of the camera.

Little secret for you all too: THE WORLD IS A LITTLE DARK SOMETIMES. Taking things seriously is not by any means bad. They're bringing life into a character that was an outdated boy fantasy and making her into a strong likable, believable character, and one worthy of being looked at as a role model to some. Smart, attractive and tough never hurt anyone.

So if you want to preach that a game needs changing fine; but don't let nostalgia blind you from actual progress.

It's nice to have an AAA game with a female lead again too. At this point, you want to take care of this new (not that vulnerable but still soft) Lara… but I think the game would have benefited from more polishing. Some animations and transitions still feel rough (look at the shooting and the shotgun reloading) and well, lets hope this is a new beginning for a series that began to go too long some time ago.

I'm hungry now. I want cookies.
