Rise of the Tomb Raider: Announcement Trailer


Sledgstone

Square Enix has announced the sequel to the hugely popular reboot of Tomb Raider! Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available in 2015.

“Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before.

“Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty survival-action style.”

Two years later after I made this topic, PS4 will finally get this game. -_-; I've purposefully avoided any news about this game so I wouldn't spoil it for myself. Now that I will finally have a PC that can play it, I think I'll still get it for PS4 later this year. The season pass is included for PS4 which does include a campaign DLC.

Square Enix has announced Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will launch on PlayStation 4 in October.

It will include Rise of the Tomb Raider and a new story chapter entitled Blood Ties, and a new co-op mode Endurance.

PlayStation VR support for Blood Ties is also included along with all of the previously released DLC, more outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards.

The Limited Edition of the game also comes with a limited edition art book.

All of the aforementioned extra content, except for VR support, will be made available for Xbox One and PC players. Current Season Pass owners on Xbox and PC will automatically receive the extra content for free.

The Season Pass will be updated to include the new content and there isn’t a Season Pass on PlayStation 4 as all content is included

I beat Rise of the Tomb Raider today.. finally. lol. :D It was good but the first game was definitely superior to me. The plot and pacing were well done and theres so much content to OCD on that it took me forever to beat it. Theres still 2 game modes I haven't tried and probably wont since they seem to be end game content that doesn't involve plot. One is a combat / survival / crafting mode and the other is a score based hordes / waves of undead enemies combat mode. The weapons and fighting in Rise of the Tomb Raider were well done, some of the perks make combat a bit too easy. Then again, with fully upgraded weapons, nothing really stands a chance again Lara Croft at the end. My rapid fire explosive shotgun rounds make quick work out of just about anything, same with my underslung grenade launcher on my assault rifle. XD

Some of the DLC I got with the collectors edition was very well done. The witch DLC made me have a full on blair witch feel that was creepy as hell and thrilling. :D The croft manor DLC was a no combat mission that felt like an old school point and click rpg game where we explore the large croft manor, solve a few puzzles and get alot of backstory via voiced dialogue.

I was disapointed with the bugs I came across. Most weren't major, it was small things that really break immersion. Most of which all took place in the last map of the game. In another map I saw some clay pots rotating wildly and making a bunch of noise for no reason.. and they were indestructable. I thought that was a bit funny and an odd bug for a big title game like this, especially since its been out for over a year. Then I got to the last map of the game.. The game has a bunch of puzzles in it, most of which is figuring out how to navigate a map to get to areas to complete challenges. I wasted 40 minutes trying to figure out how to get to this trebuchet and eventually gave up only to find out the next part in the campaign mission took me back to that same area, but now with a climbable wall that magically appeared. They could have at least made an explosion or something to explain the sudden change in this wall face, but they didn't. At that same treb, an enemy didn't spawn and it caused me to not be able to progress.. I had to walk around half the map until the other enemies respawned, and I purposefully didn't kill them, got up to the platform I needed to progress the game and the third enemy appeared. I looked it up and found out this bug has been present since the launch of the game back on Xbox One. Over a year later and this progress halting bug has not been fixed. wtf. I also saw 3 enemies perfectly still hugging a wall with their arms at odd angles.. as I approached them I saw 2 were floating from the cliff face they were supposed to be climbing.. and then the cliff face exploded sending their bodies flying. Somehow the developer forgot to animate those guys. Ummm... It feels like the last set of events was really rushed, but seeing as these things should have been patched by now and weren't is a bit disappointing. Don't get me wrong tho, these bugs only affected about an hour of my 40+ gameplay hours (not counting my afk hours, lol.). Even tho the bugs weren't a major hindrance, except for that trebuchet, they were immersion breaking. Seeing as the first Tomb Raider game was nearly flawless, I was expecting perfection again. oh well, I'm picky.

Overall, Rise of the Tomb Raider was highly enjoyable and I hope they make a third game in the series.

      YouTube bypasses Adblock Plus now. Ads are more annoying on PC than on the phone. I always wondered what those yellow lines were in the play timeline, they pop banners on the video at those times.

      My parents visited me over the weekend. Had a great time.  I wish I lived in the same state as the rest of my family so I could see them all more often.

      Finally got around to watching Black Mirror since, you know, I'm bored because I can't work (and as much as I try I just can't bring myself to play anything game wise outside of FFXIV and a little bit of Destiny (I'm stuck at 267 and have no urge to do the Exotic quests and I really don't want to level another character right now)).
      Gotta say this is definitely one of my favorite shows now. Really love how they're stand alone episodes that have no interconnection with each other (well they seem to all take place in the same year and same world (based on little hints I picked up in various episodes) but they're completely separate stories of their own). Some of the episode are really fucked up (the last episode of season 3, while not fucked up, is pretty fucking dark and has given rise to a new fear for me (saying what it is will ruin it if you haven't seen it), still one of my favorite episodes though) and some are really well thought out and emotional (the San Junipero episode is really fucking good).
      All around it's a great fucking series (better be it's British, yeah I have a thing for British television) and I highly recommend it. Figured I'd start Stranger Things this weekend since it sounds like I'll be out of work for another week (according to my surgeon's nurse when I talked to her on the phone, I'll find out more tomorrow) and be ready for when season 2 airs in Oct.

      My mattress has been killing my back and sides for over a year now. I kept adjusting how I was sleeping, got a mattress pad, etc. Screw this thing. I bought a mattress in a box from walmart.com for cheap. $140. I thought about getting a memory foam one but I read that they trap heat too easily so I went with a Slumber 1 brand coil spring.
      Sure as hell this mattress showed up in a box. It was vacummed sealed in a bag, folded and rolled up. When I broke that plastic seal it inflated so damn fast that it made a whistling noise thru the plastic bag as I was cutting it open. lol. It feels pretty comfortable so far but I have to let it air out for "full recovery" for 48 hours. I'd have rather gotten an expensive really nice beauty rest mattress or something else from a mattress store, but I'm tight on funds. This seems decent enough for now.
