Rise of the Tomb Raider launch trailer will keep you busy

Rottr croft manor

At the end of last year, I spent my holiday time playing the definitive edition of Tomb Raider. I absolutely loved it – what a game! Of course it meant that I was desperate to play Rise of the Tomb Raider, but without an Xbox One (yes, Geoff is still using mine) I figured I would just wait. Yes, it was a timed exclusive, but that’s okay if you’re patient like me; I knew it would come to PS4 eventually, and probably in an even better state. That day is almost upon us and the launch trailer highlights just how much comes to those who wait.

Here it is in all it’s gorgeous, action-packed glory:

I already knew that the game would be great – Alessandro reviewed it on Xbox last year and had only good things to say about it. Now, the definitive edition / 20th anniversary edition has so much more to love. After seeing the trailers for all that Croft manor stuff, I knew I wanted to play that, but there’s actually a whole lot more DLC that I wasn’t aware of. Baba Yaga!? Oh yes. Plus, if you have a PSVR, there will be even more content.

You know, I didn’t used to be such a huge Lara Croft fan. I liked the games, but the old ones never really grabbed me. This reboot and continuing games, though? So well done! I know a lot of the old fans have mixed feelings about these games, though. Are you enjoying seeing how Lara became such a badass, or are you irritated by playing as the mouth breathing Lara in these games? That was honestly my only gripe while playing – I loved running around as Lara, but didn’t always enjoy the realism that she would get out of breath.

Rise of the Tomb Raider makes its PS4 debut, and returns to Xbox One and PC in definitive form, on 11 October 2016. Not much longer to wait!

    I loved the reboot Tomb Raider. The Game. The Lara! The Boobs! Seriously. There was not a thing I did not like. Well, maybe the torture porn got a bit much, but other than that? It was almost perfect.
    And the vulnerable girl turning bad-ass journey you undertook in that game was just wow.
    Kinda hope this game is in my Xmas stocking this year…

        It is. I had it on PC and got the Definitive Edition on PS4 when it was on special. Still have not uninstalled it yet. Gonna replay it soon.

    I bought a Xbox One just for this game and Titanfall. I have not turned on the Xbox One in over 5 months. Still worth it to play this game. It is crazy good!

    Thankfully I had Uncharted 4 to tide me over, else I would’ve bought this day one

      Had it not been for the Reboot of TR, I would not have even looked at Uncharted, to be honest… Glad I did!

    Excuse me while I go scream like a fan girl in the corner. I so want to play this! I must play this! I will play this!

    Oh my…I WILL be playing as classic Lara!
    All of these extras…I just can’t wait anymore! That art book will be my most prized possession!
    I’ve been a fan since TR1 and grew up playing all there TR games from PC, PS2 and now PS4.
    I love the reboots and think they are brilliant. Obviously completely different, but just simply very good games AND they tell the story of Lara perfectly.
