I just found this video...it might be a part of something bigger, I don't know;
If you don't want to watch it, here's a list of content:

-earlier version of Carvier's apartment
-extra room in Carvier's apartment
-unused plant in biodome
-some interesting concept arts
-Lara's pistol has way better textures, than what we got on PC. (I might wrong tho)

Did you notice the stamina bar in that video? It has a grey color.
And what's more, it fills up not just when sprinting but while she's walking around and using ladders. Maybe it wasn't tuned up at the stage but who knows...

Also notice how Lara turns her head to look at things, maybe items too.

No I didn't. Where in the video did you see that?

At 1:33 I see on a desktop corner "Time is running out"
and lots of smilies
At 0:23 I - think I - see the sanatorium with rooms that are not there.
At 0:25 I see an unknown room, it looks like the Monstrum Crime Scene in the lower section of Vasily's place
At 0:59 I see the Biodome without bars so Lara can walk freely through the plants and no sign of Muller (not to mistaken by Mulder)
At 1:09 Janice not in her place in the retail version.

And did you see this?

At 0:03 the STRAHOVA with the cool gun pointing at Lara. I did not have seen him before or that scene.

That grey bar could be her endurance, the reddish bar is her stamina.

bottom right corner, from 30sec to 37sec.

1. That sticker -as of now- is just a painful reminder for me...
2. That's the maximum containment area, with the Proto's pod in the middle. It's a shame, the video's quality isn't very good at some points...
3. That's a very early WIP version of Strahov's loading bay.
4. We don't know much about the alpha/beta biodome sadly... Muller could have escaped or was not implemented yet.
5. She was supposed to changing place between the hotel and the disco...also, she may have not been implemented at that stage.

You did see this.

That's a shot from the Louvre, just after the mercenaries rappelled down. The next shot is gunderson approaching the merc while saying : 'Maintain radio silence'

Endurance bar? Never heard of it

I found this video on IGN youtube channel:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6otnkL8OiYU

It seems to be the beta version. There is no grey bar here but there is a small circle next to the health bar that fills up with red every time Lara is running. It seems to fade when she's standing still and when she's going up the stairs

I'm going to look into this a bit more

That's just the corridor Carvier goes into to call the police.

Interesting video. The pistol textures are definitely better, and she retains the shotgun on her back during the cutscene. I like that her head turns to look at things, too (00:58 - 01:12). This is only retained in the final game in The Strahov Fortress where Lara says "That's not any script that I know."

Oh, you're right! I completely forgot that one. Still, interesting to see with different textures...

Well, I'm only guessing and makes sense to me.

The grey bar slowly gets filled up, whenever Lara was sprinting. When she stopped, that bar got drained in an instant.
That could mean, she was able to sprint for a limited time only.Which could be expanded with upgrading strength...

I watched the video, that you've linked.
I find interesting that flashing red dot below the health bar; It stopped flashing while Lara was fighting the guard...

So much commotion about the Japanese dubs

The weapon damage increase is the SOLE change to the JP versions of every TR game bar TR1 and AOD. No extra items or less enemies. 1 extra room in TR1 as it's a difficult trap room.

It's not too difficult to comprehend. What is it..6 x2pistol shots to kill a wolf. Unrealistic. The classic tomb raiders were very difficult compared to most other games out there Japanese or not. I prefer playing the JP versions because of all of this. Evens out the shooting and platforming better

Also, what I find most interesting is that the stamina bar fills up when Lara is moving instead of getting empty. It's empty when she stands still, but fills with grey color once she starts running (especially visible in the Parisian Ghetto part). What was the idea behind it? Is it just a debug overlay to show Lara's speed or something? It seems like the bar gets fuller when Lara gains speed. Or was there specific function planned to it?

Maybe it's a "tired" bar?
