Tomb Raider trailer shows it will be mature by using black and white film and flesh-covered actors


Pity us PC journalists. Console reviewers everywhere got hold of their review copies of Tomb Raider earlier this week, so they already know whether Crystal Dynamics have managed to find a balance between Uncharted-style player hand-holding and the tomb exploration of the Lara games of old. We PC journo-folk won’t be receiving review copies and, like you scruff, have to wait for general release. Oh woe is us.

Square Enix are trying to console this pain by releasing a very serious trailer of the new game in action.

Well, that was quite serious wasn’t it?

I say this in every Tomb Raider post but I’m cautiously excited about this reboot. I’m intrigued by the tone the designers have gone for and how well it willcarry into how we’ll play the game but I’m worried by how much ofthe footage shown so farseems to be one extremely long scripted sequence.

With its release on the5 March we don’t have long to wait to find out.

Well spotted, VG247.
