Which direction will Lara take next then?

The games will have a lot more badass prepared strong and so on and so on... Lara
And please don't think like they will make the duals, shorts... Back trust me it will be a disappointment for you. This is a trilogy origin story of THE NEW LARA CROFT

I thought it was the last in the reboot origin trilogy. So at the end, we will have seen the origin of Lara the TR, but not necessarily the last in the reboot series.

Whether it changes significantly after that will depend on the market and the development of gaming in general.... everyone's got to keep up with the competition.

Brian said it himself, once the trilogy is done Lara will have adventures but we will never know her age or the time frame of them.

^Which is brilliant :tmb: I miss standalone stories .

I was wondering that too, maybe to block the sun? Idk lol

CrowdedToaster 18-03-18 02:19

Anyone else notice how the teaser is presented in (I believe) 18:9 aspect ratio? I feel it looks much prettier, alongside with the very nice CGI. I'm sure they did it BC it's showing in theaters to coincide with the movie, and theatres usually show movies in that ratio I think

Actually if you look closely, it appears that he has a mask on the top of his head. Maybe the net and mask are connected like some sort of veil.

ShutUpReyes 18-03-18 03:43

On the subject of microtransactions they will no doubt be in Shadow. I just hope they stay in a side mode and stay away from the main story.

I also hope the DLC is better. Overall, bar Blood Ties and the second half of Baba Yaga, the Rise DLC was utter rubbish. It's TR. Give us cool tombs and puzzles, not zombies and survival simulators.

For the puzzle game?

Linoshi Croft 18-03-18 10:46

Random, but can we have some female mercenaries to fight? I'm still baffled as to why games still don't include this. Why is it fine to mow down an army of blokes but it's a no go to mow dowm female enemies? :ponder:

cause we live in an era where feminism is a very sensitive topic! some people will think that it's amazing that women can be mercenaries and others will think it's sexist to kill women.

...but that's the big question isn't it, why are you fine mowing down blokes but as soon as it's a woman it's somewhat inappropriate?

The fact it's fine to mow down blokes is extremely sexist but as we know sexism seems to only work one way.

jajay119 18-03-18 10:52

There are plenty of other games with female enemies; TR has no excuse to be any different. Especially as it would be a woman taking them down, not a man, so any ‘sexism’ (even though it’s more sexist not to have women in the traditional sense) claims would be invalid.

I know right?! Horizon ZD had them, and I barely even noticed.

No i am just kidding but if there will be females in the game they must have appropriate body and look because they must look strong even looking stronger than Lara.maybe Some muscle appropriate clothes for the jungle they must look like they have been there for years you know
I'll be ok with that:)

And maybe bigger than Lara

Are there many games?
I dont remember many.

It seems a far stretch in games to have female thugs and gangs despite the fact that in games you can fight zombies, supernatural things and so on.

Would be nice to have some Female Scavengers or so in the next TR game.

jajay119 18-03-18 11:05

Horizon: Zero Dawn, Fallout, Just Cause 3, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst are some more recent titles that had women enemies that spring to mind: I’m sure there are more but these are the ones I think immediately.

If you go further back you have the likes of Saints Row, Resident Evil entries etc that show women as enemies - admittedly they’re not in the majority but I think they should be.

Same. I'm wondering if we'll get some kind of new clues about the game from it. I'm also hoping we can win some nice wallpapers from completing it.

I think wallpapers are too big of a thing to get out of it since the teaser didn't even really show us Lara. That being said, I hope we get something!

Emix 18-03-18 11:31

Can't wait to see Shadow Lara on her first magazine cover. And also cover art for the game. They both need to be ICONIC!!

Maybe, but how about wallpapers where we just see Lara's back? Maybe we could also get concept arts - they usually make great wallpapers themselves. :D

Kind of unrelated, but I've been thinking about this since last night: does anyone else think we might actually get the full CGI trailer before April 27th? Like a day or even a week before. I can't help but think how redundant releasing a CGI tailer will be on the same day they plan to release actual gameplay. :ponder: Maybe it will be like what they did with Rise: release the CGI trailer a day or so before to remind people again of the event.

I sure hope so. I'm still pissed over how they only showed us a 20 second teaser.

I'm actually in favor of this. Some female mercs in the organization to mix it up a bit.

Wasn't there something like: "You can win a trip and be among the first to try the game." or something similar idk.

If not, I'd like some kind of mayan tribe with only female warriors like the amazons or sth! I'd like them as villains but I wouldn't mind them as allies.
