They released that "coming soon" five DLCs in, if I recall correctly. If their intent was to build up hype, then they started too early.

So early, in fact, that people have already stopped talking about it... oh wait...

Honestly this is nothing new. This is their tactic, worked so well for Shadow. Put something out there and then radio silence until release, then they scratch their heads in confusion as to why it didn't sell as well.

Duh, pressing mute on the radio ain't going to do anyone any favors. Has this not been proven already.

It has indeed and I will never understand why they are so secretive over something this much.

Unless it‘s actually a graphic update like with the DE in 2013, why would I buy it if I already have the game and the dlcs? It would be the exact same content and I doubt they‘ll make a new cover for it, so really not worth collecting either.

I was thinking maybe the 8th slot is going to be a simplified version of the first TR1 Tomb. Maybe after the huge hate wave because of the changed ending they realized that people liked the idea of connecting the game to TR1 and they're giving us a new ending where she gets a letter from Natla after all and decided to go there.

The 8th tomb slot is just going to be my nudes.















Meaning it wasn’t worth the hype.

Oh wait, what? I pretty much have. This is my first time talking about it in ages because EM can't figure out how to say anything about it. We got one teaser from Morrigan which may or may not be related (it probably is) and that's it. My interest is pretty much dead now.

Me, too. Not worth it playing it anymore after all the dlcs.
