Default Alpha vs. final game

So I just came across this video on YouTube and itís the first time Iíve seen the full scene of the original version, besides the short parts seen in the crossroads trailer. Hereís the video Iím talking about:



God knows why they changed this. I believe they mentioned during promo that they changed it a bit to keep it as a surprise, but thereís nothing surprising about the whole situation with a character such as Mathias. I actually really like the interaction with Sam and Lara here. (Also her original voice actress was so much better honestly)

Does anyone know if there were any other noticeable changes? Besides the obvious ascension prototype

I don't know about Sam's voice actress, but Lara's was the same here, Camilla. I do prefer this intro to Matthias to what we got though.

^ I was talking about Sam obviously. The voice actress changed after the release of the crossroads trailer.

Here are two videos from a build I have. Its the exact same one from the OP only its missing the later part of the demo.

To clarify this is an E3 2012 demo built May 2012.

There are 3 known demos built from this same base build each containing different parts of the game..

^ love this so much. I actually think I remember playing the demo of the first video, but Iím not sure. It was a public demo for the game in Amsterdam and I think I remember the hair being that way (as in you could see actually see her ears, which honestly looks SO MUCH better)

Great vids. Werenít you also the one who released that alpha trailer? With the voice over of a different voice actress with lines like ďyou seem to mistake me for someone elseĒ

Any idea what the timelines of these videos/builds are?

The Sam's voice actress is the same. I don't hear any difference.

Then you really should listen again cause the difference is huge lol. They even confirmed during promotion that they changed the actress. Just listen to the scene above or watch the crossroads trailer and then look up a scene of the finished game.

I never understood why the holster on the shoulder strap for the Shotgun & Assualt Rifle was removed

You'd think she would know the whole crew on the ship, even the maintenance crew that worked below deck. And if she means he's a good guy, unlike the psycho Lara encountered, this would mean Sam also encountered some dangerous people on the island already and avoided them. It's all just such a horrendous mess.

Regardless, the fact that in both scenarios, both girls just fall asleep with this random stranger is dumb beyond belief. Well done Rhianna. *Claps*
