Here’s a duo of new trailers for Rise of the Tomb Raider. The launch trailer doesn’t have much new material as far as locations go, but there are some fresh character scenes with Lara’s friend, Hannah, and the no-good leader of Trinity. If you’re after some new footage, you’ll be better off checking out the second part of the Woman Vs Wild series, where we see Lara engaging enemies with different combat styles. Oddly enough, there seems to be a lot of Stealth kill XP awarded for using explosives. Hmmm. Not that we can’t wait for the release in just 10 days time!
We’ve included the latest preorder deal too, although we’ve seen it cheaper in recent weeks. Continue reading Rise of the Tomb Raider launch trailer + combat trailer
A new series of Rise of the Tomb Raider videos entitled Woman Vs Wild are set to give us new looks at the game in the build up to launch next month. Today’s episode looks at ‘harsh environments’.
This shows us the wildlife Lara will face. And by face, I mean nail to the endangered species list with an arrow or possibly shotgun. There’s a brief mention of the story too and a look at the new expanded hub environments. Enjoy the trailer after the break and I’ve dug out the cheapest current preorder offer too.

It’s not hard to see why Microsoft were so keen to grab Rise of the Tomb Raider as an exclusive as it’s looking pretty damn good right now. The latest trailer is an action-packed tour of the various locations in the new title as we see gaming’s most beloved burglar embark on another epic quest to steal some fancy relics before the guys with guns do.
We’re presuming the relics are linked to an ancient power that shouldn’t fall into the wrong hands. Otherwise, it would mean that Lara’s just a murdery mental-case. We’ve always had an odd feeling about her yanno. Continue reading Rise of the Tomb Raider – Descent into Legend trailer
Well, that’s more like it Microsoft and Square-Enix! The new extended gameplay demo of Rise of the Tomb Raider is a considerable improvement over the arguably dull E3 2015 appearance. So much so, it’s hard to imagine why Microsoft went for the video they did for their on-stage gameplay reveal over the new one released over the weekend.
The timed Xbox exclusive is one of the year’s biggest releases and the gameplay reveal at E3 was one of our most anticipated parts of Microsoft’s show. But then it happened and they turned E3 into QTE3. It wasn’t a bad demo by any means, but there was a heavy focus on quick-time-events and climbing rather than showing us extended on-foot scenes. Tomb Raider scenes. Continue reading Did Microsoft choose the wrong stage demo for Rise of the Tomb Raider at E3?
So, Uncharted 4 has been pushed back to Spring 2016. As news goes for PS4 gamers, it’s pretty damn heartbreaking. But delays aren’t always a bad thing for a game. We’ve had enough of unfinished releases like AC: Unity and DriveClub, and are trying to be as patient as possible for the likes of Batman: Arkham Knight and The Witcher III, both of which have needed more time before the developers have been ready to unleash them. And major kudos to them for that and as much as it pains me to say it, Kudos to Naughty Dog too.
