Square Enix has uploaded a new episode for the ‘Guide to Survival’ video series to introduce important gameplay elements for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. Similar to the Assassin’s Creed 3’s Homestead interface, Lara will be able to use fast travel to explored locations from the Basecamp for easier navigation. The ‘gear gating’ system requires players to acquire the suitable tools to unlock inaccessible places and allows players to uncover the island’s mysteries when they return to that same area.
Just like the first episode, Lara will become stronger as the game progresses and more weapons will be available for the iconic heroine. The more skill upgrades and experience she gains, the better the weapons available for stealth or open combat.
Tomb Raider will be available for purchase on March 5 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
