What’s with the new fad of releasing a series of trailers under the guise of an episodic miniseries? Is it not enough to just be a trailer? I know it’s a trailer, you know it’s a trailer, they definitely know it’s a trailer, so why the insistance on calling it something else? It baffles the mind.
Regardless, here’s “Episode 1” of the new “series” – Tomb Raider: Guide To Survival. This video covers “Smart Resourceful Lara”, exploring some of the ways Lara can upgrade her skills and abilities. The video shows the base camp system, which allows players to upgrade Lara’s skills through XP, and gear through salvaged scrap. Lara also has a “survival instinct”, which apparently highlights puzzle elements and hidden items. The puzzles themselves appear to be reassuringly complex – let’s hope that what is shown in the video are just the beginning of the puzzling in the final game.
The trailer is below.
We will of course keep you updated with all the latest details.
