Any E3 expectations?
 
Clearly SE will be there to promote new stuff. Avenger game which I'm clearly boycotting due to my Shadow of the Tomb Raider experience but seeing as this remastered thing has been a thing lately, I think that maybe CD Northwest may recreate or remaster the first 3 Classic games. No new TR in my opinion.

What about you?

biscuits 31-05-19 13:14

Nope. I'd love a Classic remaster or remake announcement but to me it's nothing but a pipe dream.

I think it's going to be completely Marvel focused.

jajay119 31-05-19 13:17

I don't believe we will see anything at E3 this year with regards to TR. Shadow's promo is only just wrapping up and any sort of GOTY/ Definitive edition is not E3 news worthy imo. I don't imagine any remakes of classic games nor Lara Croft games coming either. I have a strange sensation they don't want to mix classic and reboot Lara's at the moment possibly due to not knowing what we they want to take the character and the series next so will leave all avenues free of bias. I don't see remasters of classic games soemthing they will present at E3 either. It will be all about the Avengers and likely some other Final Fantasy product they no doubt have in the pipeline.

Patrick star 31-05-19 13:19

Why are you "boycotting" Avengers because of SOTTR ? lol .

Anyway , I don't have any expectations for anything TR at E3 . I'd be pleased to be proved wrong obviously but right now I'm not seeing it .

And it'd be better if people don't set themselves up for possible disappointments as we have 0 indications for a TR presence at E3 , especially the tiny minority here who're notorious for throwing hissy fits and crazy tantrums over the silliest and most trivial stuff possible , lol .

killchan 31-05-19 13:25

Avengers
Guardians Of The Galaxy
FFVII remake
Kingdom Hearts 3 DLC
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition (+ 8th final tomb)
more of Just Cause 4 DLC
mobile games
Nintendo Switch ports
2 teasers for new IPs

Amunet 31-05-19 13:27

I'm not expecting anything TR related at E3. I would love to have a Classic Remaster/Remake announcement, but I'm not holding my breath.

I think they'll just focus on Marvel's Avengers and maybe FF.

jajay119 31-05-19 13:28

Considering Avalanche havent even been able to patch in a brightness option rendering night time segments unplayable at times I highly hope they're not still trying to rinse people for more money. JC4 was honestly a massive let down to me after 3.

AshesBorn 31-05-19 13:28

I doubt there will be any major TR-related announcements (if any), and I'm fine with that.

biscuits 31-05-19 13:31

I think Tomb Raider in general will rest for a while. I don't mean it will be abandoned or go on hiatus or whatever. I think they're just going to have a much longer development cycle so they can work on making it a next gen title. They might build the entire thing from the ground up in terms of assets, graphics, animations, etc. The reboot trilogy has a solid and good run in these 5 years, but sticking to the (IMO) stale formula won't help them. They'll probably work on changing things up and making it fresh again.

But that depends on the Marvel deal.
From what we know of the Avengers game, it is NOT a single player action adventure game on the likes of Tomb Raider or Uncharted. It's a live service game with a heavy focus on co-op gameplay. So more of a GAAS title similar to Anthem or Destiny. Those types of games usually get extended developer support for years after launch.

In short, I think Square will have their western developers focus on Marvel projects for the coming years. EM also has to work on a Guardians game. Their baby Deus Ex is probably never returning.

Legends 31-05-19 13:37

I have no expectations for Reboot Raider this E3, even less for Tomb Raider as that has been dead for over a decade, but I do hope Nintendo is ready to announce Breath of The Wild 2 soon, but I'm not really expecting that either. Just hoping.

yeah. more on that.
"an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay. Assemble in teams up to four players, master extraordinary abilities, customise your heroes to fit your playstyle, and combine powers to defend an ever-expanding world under constant threat."

this is... sad :(

Count me out. Not a big fan of those kinds of games.

I'm hoping, and partially expecting news on HZD 2.

These types of games make good money despite their quality. Having a high budget co-op game featuring the Avengers is the easiest method to print money and to drown in it. There was no way Squeenix wasn't going to capitalize on this :p

klona 31-05-19 13:58

If we see anything TR related on E3, it will probably be a remaster of sorts.

Or I hope my classics 3DS port dreams come true...

I'll be very interesting what kind of traction this game gets. Avengers is popular, but depending on players for a game to even work is a risky business. Anthem is basically dead now because it's lacking players.

Melonie Tomb Raider 31-05-19 14:23

I don't expect any new TR game news at E3 (maybe something about that SOTTR 8th DLC slot though?). At this point my biggest hope is Classic TR remasters, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Athukraz 31-05-19 14:39

The 8th tomb slot. They probably added the "coming soon" in the tombs menu because that's the only place they could do it. I think they are changing the main menu to add more stuff like chapter replay and croft manor and the coming soon will be removed from the tombs menu because it's not a tomb.

mandylane 31-05-19 14:57

i dont want croft manor. useless. the nightmare looked cool tho

i really hope a 20 seconds trailer dropped on e3

TombRaiderTim 31-05-19 15:26

If i'm honest, Tomb Raider as a game is heading in the same direction as AOD now and they need to do something about it instead of making shortcuts for quick profit by creating a not so good Shadow of the Tomb Raider with endless DLC that is quite simply an overpriced joke when it could be made as an NPC mission for the main game itself at this point but I can tell you one thing and that is that the love for the franchise has gone in terms of the developers, Square has been careless towards a lot of games they have released as of late with a big drop in quality via splitting it all up to a half complete game with the other half as incredibly priced and pointless DLC.

charmedangelin 31-05-19 15:28

DLC 8 for Shadow. It's been teased to death amoung other things.

I feel like this has been going on for years and people here are kinda ignoring it. Square has been mismanaging and mishandling their western division of games. So many of their recent games like Just Cause 4, Mankind Divided, and Thief have been rushed out the door and made incomplete. Deus Ex was deliberately cut up and released in an incomplete fashion for sequel baiting purposes.
Let's not forget Rise's exclusivity.

if you didnt know i donated 10 dollar to eidos cause i really like them and do.

it is the first time ever i donate money to developers:mad:

AshesBorn 31-05-19 15:47

^ Wow, you singlehandedly funded the next TR game.

NoahCrofRaider 31-05-19 17:24

All I expect for E3 is Marvel/Avengers-focused stuff, maybe the 8th DLC announcement, and a potential DE for Shadow.

I’m also hoping for an announcement of classic remakes, but like others have said, it is very unlikely. I’m trying to stay somewhat optimistic about the possibility, nonetheless.

Vaskito 31-05-19 17:29

I think there’s a chance of DLC 8 to be announced at E3, in a small announcement. Like, SE will talk about their most recently released titles, their new strategy of a short time span between announcing and releasing, and how they release DLCs for their franchises to keep interest, etc., and they’ll say something like “in line with that, we’re proud to announce one last surprise DLC for SOTTR, and it will be the Croft Manor, where you’ll be able to explore and train, as an ode to the earlier Tomb Raider games. Hope you enjoy it!”

are you sure its me?

Blackmoor 31-05-19 22:01

Like most people, I have no expectations of a TR show at E3.

I think the next game is a long ways off.

I have no interest in the Avengers full stop. Their films don't really appeal to me so I have no interest in the game no matter who makes it. I'm not a superhero kind of person.

mandylane 31-05-19 22:53

Cue to the soon to come predictable comments:

"Ohh! Look at them! SOTTR is a pile of trash because they spend more time playing a board game instead of fixing their own mess! Pathetic!"

There, there Christian. Mommy is here :hug:

Evan C. 01-06-19 01:11

This is probably the first time I am actually not expecting announcements of any sorts. They are clearly focused on Avengers, and I hope they will go even higher with this.

FanosCroft 01-06-19 06:57

Maybe next year

I'm glad to see the developers in a relaxed state. They deserve some bonding time as well. It's a lot more fun to work at a company that gives you a little space to breathe and to interact with the other employees from time to time.

You may know wrong, this is some info from PC Gamer on Crystal's Avengers:
Quote:

Embrace your powers and join key members of the development team at Crystal Dynamics and the creative team at Marvel Games as they talk exclusively about the upcoming Marvel's Avengers. This is the defining Avengers gaming experience: an epic action-adventure that combines cinematic storytelling with continuous single-player and co-operative gameplay.

mandylane 01-06-19 09:10

veigafd 01-06-19 11:51

only a prediction, doesnt mean im right. but yeah sometimes i am right about things actually wich is really weird:confused:

Zsott 01-06-19 13:12

Expectations?
None.

They might give us a few words about SoTR's sales, or a hint about the outfits that weren't done .

Other than taht, I'll be busy with Hitman's content : two new missions, new unlockables, new location, elusive targets...and these kind of stuff just coming since its release...and IO haven't finished yet. (content drops won't be stopping until december)

So unless SE has something big to announce, I won't be interested in E3 at all.
