Tomb Raider prepares for release with ‘Guide to Survival’ video series

By Shan S Dec 18 2012 add comment

This first episode introduces the Basecamp System as well as Lara Croft’s survival instincts for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot and the approach looks similar to Batman: Arkham City. Just like Batman, players can upgrade Lara’s skills when she gains points from doing various actions such as exploring. Lara’s ‘survival instinct’ works like Batman’s ‘detective mode’ where objects that are useful in puzzle solving are highlighted. The video also shows off the importance of three elements (fire, water and wind) [...]

“Prophet returns to a New York City in lockdown, a broken metropolis entombed inside the CELL Corporation’s Nanodome, in this all new video directed by Albert Hughes.
“The ‘Liberty Dome’ has transformed much of New York City into an urban rainforest, teaming with colossal trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. The dangers of this new environment will demand advanced weaponry and tactics– luckily the Nanosuit is more than up to the task of hunting down Prophet’s enemies in Crysis 3.”

The game also [...]
