Like seriously! The only thing is actually really noticeable and weird that is being reused is in RotTR right at the beginning of Syria, where they reuse the exact animations beat to bit from TR2013 of injured Lara falling down and noticing something ahead of her.

Everything else? Unless you are really looking you will never notice some building in both TR2013 and RotTR have the same layout, because they look and are used in different ways. Unless you are looking for changes in the animations you wouldn't be noticing they are the same. And of course they are the same! They are for the same character and by a studio who doesn't have the luxury of remaking literally every single asset just because.

Like seriously, come on. This is not new! Even Core reused assets! I don't know why this is such a topic. Are we really complaining that a company works smart? What's the problem here?
I mean I do see the point how the game copied each other a little too much. it was a bit noticeable. Nothing wrong with reusing some assets or animations tho. but some beats were a little too similair to each other

The Holidays have messed up the schedule for interviews and content, CD will be mostly out of the office until January.

How is it anything to do with this fan base scrutinizing Crystal? I'll always defend Crystals early work with LAU. And I have praise for certain aspects of the survivor timeline. But everything Crystal reused, from story beats, story set up, animations, that same building ....... they were noticed straight away on my first ever playthrough. I wasn't looking for any of that. And they still stick out on my playthrough im on right now (so it's not just the first section of the game . Not sure where you've been but it's pretty well known by everyone how insanely similar Rise plays out like 2013.) I have no ties to anyone on here or the behaviour that goes on here. I pointed these things out because I hate that these little things hold Crystal back from being top tier. They are literally minor things..... like who cares?...........well, seems like I do....because it sticks out to me while i'm playing and I start pointing things out that I've already experienced in 2013. I don't think Crystal are lazy whatsoever. But that word just floats in to my head whenever I see rehashes.

Look, talking about story bits, especially between TR2013 and Rise, that is fair. And I even talk about the one moment where it is too blantant that it is literally the same animation and story beat. That one is the one that really doesn't have an excuse.

But the rest, especially how the story is constructed, sorry, but it just seems to be a weird criticism. Especially when it something that is that unique to Tomb Raider. Not even talking about just games either. It applies to movies, books, comics, any sort of media. They all work in recognizable patterns, especially if they belong to the same franchise.

Okay, fine, you found those similarities between TR2013 and RotTR in your first playthrough. Cool. But can I ask you why? Why specifically Tomb Raider? Especially since, outside of that weird cinematic/gameplay I talked, Rise isn't really copying TR2013, but it is actually following the same story beats most action adventure stories, regardless of media, is following? Why is it somehow a problem in Tomb Raider and not anywhere else? Why is it a problem from CD, and not from literally anyone else?

What I am saying is that unconscious bias is a thing. And I wouldn't be surprised if this would be a case here.

Sorry, maybe I am also completely misunderstanding things. Maybe it is my own unconsicous biases getting the best of me here. But I really cannot compreend how something that is so standard in literally everything, and something that is standard not because of lazyness, but because resources have to be allocated smartly, is somehow such a problem for CD. I seriously cannot understand.

We wrapped up our last community playthrough stream of 2021 yesterday with Rise of the Tomb Raider! It's crazy to think we've journeyed through almost the whole TR game catalogue this year and retold Lara's tales through so many incredible streamers.

We have custom streamer kits for both games that you can download and use for your own channel, check them out below!

I forgot they gave Ana Pure Hair on Xbox, and it makes her look so much better. They could’ve at least let us get it too on PS4 Pro or PS5, the hair exclusivity should be over now lol.
