Default Early TR Anniversary prototypes (from Project Deluge)

There is a project called Project Deluge that brings a lot of material of early build games, e3 demos and such. For more infos, you can visit this website.


Interesting for us are the TRA builds.



I can not run them, but I am also sure others will. Please make videos/screenshots and tell us what the changes are.

Nice find!

Let's hope someone can launch it and dig into the files. Finger crossed!

Hi i discovered accidentally how to open debug menu, it is with L1 + R2+ Analog Forward at the same time , i managed to go to egypt section in style units in the game

With that combination if you also press Select and Forward Lara goes UP and DOWN.

It's kinda annoying because sometimes inventory opens.

This is a test video showing movement using debug :

More testing stuff

I managed with debug to disable reticle for enemy aim,and going directly to end of sanctuary of the scion.

Palace Midas is named here as "Midas Gardens"
Seems like in Mar 14, 2007 prototype Atlantis isn't playable.

In the retail version, there is a testcube (accessible by debug); in this cube Lara can equip a machine gun (identical to the Legend one).
I'd assume, it's present in these builds too.

Oh interesting, I also noticed an unseen loading artwork and Natla's Mines was "Abandoned Mines". Wait until Rise for this last one !

I'm a bit disappointed that these builds are very close to the final version, so there probably aren't that many surprises. But cool find nonetheless.

I really wanna play that very early prototype that Crystal allegedly made where they ported the first level of TR I into Legend. Back in the day the Crystal guys claimed that Legend Lara would finish the level too quickly which is why they rebuild every level for TRA. I never bought this considering how short Legend Lara's jumping distance is and always thought that it's more likely that she couldn't even finish the level at all.

Anniversary has the least beta content of all the Tomb Raiders apparently.

Also Core’s version has the same problem they encountered. You can run through the levels a lot faster without having to turn Lara or line her up for jumps as much.

I tried to open the debug but it's didn't work for me. Are you sure Analog Forward is left or right analog?

That's disappointing! But considering how buggy the final product is, I'm not really surprised. Looks like they pretty much kept everything that they initially came up with in an unpolished and unchanged state.

Lara running faster is one thing, but I'm not sure if Legend Lara could do some of the jumps. That's why I wanna see/play it.
