Default *spoilers* HQ ORIGINAL/UNPATCHED ENDING *spoilers*

EDIT: We have a sort of “update” from Justin:

From Square:

Quote:
Unfortunately one of the directions that was considered, but not chosen, was mistakenly included in the game. The Day One patch fixes this error, along with many other improvements. As always, we highly recommend that our players install the patch to enjoy the complete and most up-to-date experience.

I know we've got like 3 threads about this ending, but we didn't have proper high-quality footage of this yet, and I don't want it to get lost in those threads.

So I unpatched my game and I played through it again for like 4 hours straight to get this. Thanks to tombstone for originally informing us of this ending, and for the initial footage that they provided.

Thank you so much for sharing. I can't for the life of me see why they changed this. It would have been such a nice homage for us, the fans. Ah, well.

I really hope that was NOT fanmade..

and why do they always pull this **** - that ending would have at least got me as little excited for the future - instead of the one we got.

Perhaps they felt it was too obvious, so they went for a more subtle approach with the picture of the T Rex and Egypt instead?
Were the duals in the final ending or not, I forget?

I wonder if yet another TR1 remake is on the horizon - or perhaps this was just meant to connect to the Core Design games and thats that.

Thanks for this Daft Raider

I really like this one better. If it weren't for the letter, I think it'd have been great otherwise. Ah well, shame they patched it out last minute. It probably is better to leave it more open ended, but I still think that it would've been simpler to just change the letter texture if they wanted to avoid alluding to that in the next game(s).

I still like the idea of her going on new adventures with new characters better for this reboot universe, but that's me.

True..

Still, shooting dinos in the face with a bow in Lost Valley sounds pretty fitting LOL

Really hope Lara has duals and maybe a backpack next time around though - we have waited long enough IMO

This ending is far better than the one we got and at least the “become the Tomb Raider” thing would have made sense. Why in the world the changed it is beyond me

This is definitely better in many ways, outside the nostalgia factor. The tone, the lighting...

It's so unusual for studios to change a complete cutscene so drastically in a day-one patch. I really want to know what happened.
