Yup and some of the traps are evil. Several times I found myself in a room where there are arrow traps pointed directly at you as you spawn, as well as enemies in the corners of the room aiming their weapons directly at Lara causing massive damage to you if you get hit, given how impossible it is to dodge them all without knowing this kind of room existed.

They have other evil traps like the spike roller that forced you to run forward with boulders coming down from the ceiling, while there are spike traps on the floor, with arrow traps shooting at you that you can only dodge by running and trying to hide in small spots in the level.

They went crazy with the difficulty in this game. Aside from some bosses that can nearly one shot Lara, it really begs for you to spend money in order to get access to better gear quickly.

It’s free to play what did you expect.

bekim 01-10-21 16:48

I didnt expect to have this much fun with this game but here I am!

I just wish I had to buy it instead and it didnt have this annoying difficulty!

The theme and design is too adorable!

Edit: Lost Valley frogs are pissing me off!!!!

The original game that Reloaded is based on did not have this difficulty. Neither does another archero clone called Squad Alpha that just launched.

Guilielmus 03-10-21 01:14

Which countries is the game out?

Brendanlovesu1 06-10-21 09:51

Tease for Kurtis Trent, also Chris from raidercast mentioned in the replies it's Murti's birthday today. happy birthday Murti!!

And now we finally understand what Crystal mean about unifying the timelines. It'll happen exclusively in this game. ;)

Anaya, Kurtis, Von Croy, Winston, TR1 story...

Just waiting to see Jonah turn up next.

Raxel 06-10-21 20:05

Oh! I'm so happy to see Kurtis back, too. I always liked him.

But the shower thing again? And in a teasing post from someone actually working on the game? Really? Sigh, sometimes I wonder if people who make that "joke" are actually aware of how tone deaf that comes across. Or at least I'm hoping they're just tone deaf.

But anyway, how is this going to work with all these characters thrown in? Do these Archero-type games actually allow the implementation of a lot of different characters in their own roles or is this mainly a “cutscenes” thing? What gameplay I have seen of those types of games would suggest that they aren't normally very heavy on the character type stuff, in appearance or otherwise. So, how does this work? Can you swap them in for Lara as a playable character? Do they just appear as a mechanic to drop items and bonuses, as I understand, Anaya, Von Croy and Winston do? That doesn't sound like it would allow for a lot of cameos to work, unless it's chapter depended.

Jonah won't turn up in Reloaded, by the way, as the game focuses on the Classic and LAU eras.

Apologies if this is something that comes across as offensive; I thought I understood the light ribbing that Kurtis gets from people in relation to the showering thing so I was just referencing a common thread of humour I've seen among the other TR fans I follow on Twitter - can you give me more info on how it's tone deaf, as that certainly wasn't my intention?

No offence taken.

But that light ribbing, as people like to call it, can have some uncomfortable connotations, considering Kurtis is of a mixed background. He's of European (German) and Native American (Navajo) heritage so making fun of his personal hygiene can come across as insensitive, at the very least. As this sort of thing, implying (a more often than not) non-white/mixed person is somehow 'dirty', is a rather common racial stereotype thrown around a lot, often very casually, as I understand it. So, being aware of that might be something to keep in mind, when these sort of things come around. Especially if there are no malintentions.

Very valid point, and not something I'd considered at all (not surprising being white, I know) - I assumed it was because he smoked and had the emo look and as a child of the 90s, the grunge look came with all the comments of 'do you ever shower'. Thanks for explaining!!

We are literally not insulting him because he is half Native American, we hate him and laugh at him because he sexually assaulted Lara also is the fact that we didn’t know his backstory either lmaoo literally no correlation

No he just looks like he smells

andre_costa 06-10-21 22:46

Just when I thought this forum couldn't get any better, we end up discussing whether Kurtis smells or not :cln:

Surely I can't be the only person who completely forgot Kurtis was part Navajo? :specialsnowflake:

Most people wouldn’t even have bothered to know his backstory

charmedangelin 07-10-21 06:59

I'm happy about Kurtis, I love him and would love to see him return in this franchise in some capacity.

Mikky 07-10-21 07:16

That was so incredibly cringy. I feel like I want to bleach my eyes after reading that post.

But this whole "Kurtis smells" meme is completely brand new to me - it feels very random xD Whatever the origins of it though, I feel like I can say with confidence that it has nothing to do with his race. Like really, who even knew that about Kurtis? He's whiter than Lara, for god's sake.

Anyway, can't wait to see how he looks like in Reloaded. It would be great if we could use him but I doubt it

Same. Kurtis is the least exciting thing I've yet to see come to TRR. Meh.

I also had no idea about the meme. Never heard of anything similar about Kurtis in my life.

Tombraider95 07-10-21 08:18

If you reach far enough you can tie anything to race. Never heard of the shower thing before and it was completely unnecessary to bring up race in this instance. Another example of being offended for other people.

It'll be good to see Kurtis outside of AOD. Don't think it's happened before.

Yeah, me too. It's great to see him again.

Ellioft 07-10-21 11:59

What role will he take in Reloaded anyway ?

The Angel and the Devil are already taken by Anaya/Winston and Von Croy unless they want to add a third NPC randomly in the room wich isn't honestly the best way to do.

I think the inclusion of Winston is cute but rather unecessary when Lara enter in a room when Anaya is there.

charmedangelin 07-10-21 12:48

I wonder if he will be added as a playable character. That's the only thing that's missing from Reloaded that's in all the other Archero type games.

DVDSpike 09-10-21 01:32

Currently wondering how it takes 10 months to reskin Archero and slap in some new character models for the angel.

This game should be out right now - the hype was already non-existent when the trailer dropped. This game is doomed.

Brendanlovesu1 09-10-21 07:14

Tease for the TR3 Nevada Outfit? looks to be a close up of the belt

https://twitter.com/tombraider_ed/st...27942344404992

So we now have confirmation of the following things coming to Reloaded:

- Kurtis
- AoD Double Denim Outfit
- Legend Biker Outfit - https://twitter.com/tombraider_ed/st...02581805125634
- TR3 Nevada Outfit

CheshireBitch 09-10-21 08:37

Never heard the shower joke before about Kurtis and it's so dumb. I don't even get it, it's just mean...

anyway excited to see him in a new game even if it's mobile ! Can't wait to see Lara's new outfit too and of course... can't wait to finally play the game. It's been forever since the announcement...

LNSNHGTDS 09-10-21 08:56

Kurtis... Really...?

About the shower joke, I personally had no idea he was part Native American and I'm pretty certain people say he's dirty / smelly / disgusting because he looks like a 00s lives-in-his-mums-basement-and-doesnt-shower stereotypical gamer and not because of his heritage. People just hate him because he groped Lara, not because he's Native American.

Really happy about the outfits though. I really hope the game gets an official release soon.

Haven't heard about the double denim outfit yet. Was there a tease for that too?

I suspect they are going to release this on the 25th. They've gone silent in the chat recently.

Discord, I think

There's only one staff member active on the discord server anyway. Fox might be on a vacation or sick or anything else.

I'm starting to doubt that... :ponder: If the game were to be released on the 25th, we already should have had a "full trailer" (since we don't have one yet, just the teaser) to start building up the hype again. My guess is that maybe they'll release a trailer on the 25th with a set release date. Maybe Ed could :cupoftea:
