Rise of the Tomb Raider
PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One
- Release Dec 31, 2015
The much-awaited sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider is Rise of the Tomb Raider, an all-new adventure for Lara Croft. Following the events of the series reboot, Lara is out to prove the truth of her experiences as she seeks out the secrets behind the world’s myths and legends.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will include some new and old mechanics, including a crafting system, dynamic weather, and a day-night cycle. These mechanics will all work in tandem, meaning that certain resources can only be harvested at certain times and in certain weather—for a more interesting and involving farming experience.
There will also be more diversity in combat, as players can now take more approaches to fighting—either by using new options for stealth and sneak attacks or by using the environment to avoid combat. Once again, Lara will be able to craft new weapons or make weapon improvements using farmed resources.
Like previous games in the series, Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a seamless blend of fantasy and history, as Lara Croft explores the world in search of the truth behind myths. With an organization called Trinity on her tail, Lara has to find secrets and expose the truth before it falls into the wrong hands.
