Default 20 Years of Tomb Raider



I'm a self-confessed ***** for this franchise so naturally I had to create a thread for it. This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the original Tomb Raider and the developers have announced a number of ways in which they intend to commemorate it.

- Nathan McCree (composer of the first three games) has put together a compilation of tracks from the games he worked on, both as they originally appeared and remastered/re-recorded. It's called the 'Tomb Raider Suite' and the music will be performed live at a major venue in London later this year. There'll also be a documentary covering both the creation of the album, and the subsequent concert.

- Crystal Dynamics Community Manager Meagan Marie has written a book by the name of '20 Years of Tomb Raider: Digging Up the Past, Defining the Future.' She's a lifelong fan of the franchise and has culled research material and rare artwork/photographs to cover the entirety of the series, be it the games, films, comics or memorabilia. There's supposedly over a hundred pages of the book dedicated to the community alone, including letters submitted by fans.

- Gaming Heads have designed a series of six 1:4 Lara Croft statues, each representing a different incarnation of Lara across the series - three from the Core Design era, three from the Crystal Dynamics era. They'll be available separately but they can also be pieced together. Only the silhouettes are online at the moment but one of the six statues is down to the fans - folks can vote for either Lara as she appears in Tomb Raider: Chronicles, or as she appears in Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness.

There's more to come over the course of the year. Any fans of the series lurking about?

Enjoyed playing the psone games a lot. After that it's a blur. The last ones I played was tomb raider on ps3 and the definitive edition on ps4 which was excellent. Will be getting "rise" for sure if it ever gets to ps4.

I remember a co-worker ogling at a opm magazine i had with Lara on the front back in the 90s

It will be released in Dec 2016. The Deal with Microsoft was to make it a timed exclusive for a period of one year. Thus Xbox One got it last December and for the folks including myself, who happen to only have a PS4, we have to wait it out for a year.

I do hope no more timed exclusives are agreed upon. A waste of time for the gamer on the wrong side of the platform.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the PS4 October 11th - earlier than I expected. Can't wait!

From Tumblr:

Quote:
As part of ongoing #TombRaider20 celebrations hosted by Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration launches on PlayStation 4 October 11. Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will include the award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider, a new story chapter called “Blood Ties,” co-op play for “Endurance Mode”, all previously released DLC, and more. The Artbook Edition will also feature a 28 page book filled with official concept art and community contributions.

“Blood Ties” is new premium DLC, and will allow players to explore Croft Manor in the main story mode, then defend it against a zombie invasion in “Lara’s Nightmare”. When Lara’s uncle contests ownership of the Manor, Lara must explore the estate to find proof that she is the rightful heir, or lose her birthright and father’s secrets for good. Players can then test their zombie-killing skills in the replayable “Lara’s Nightmare” mode: a haunted Croft Manor where players have new challenges and must rid the Manor of an evil presence.

In addition, for the first time in a Tomb Raider game, a new online co-op expansion to “Endurance Mode” lets fans raid tombs in a brutal wilderness together. Two players must team up to survive the harsh elements by day, as well as lethal threats from enemies by night. Fire takes fuel, food restores health, and every resource must be hunted, collected, or crafted. Battle to the top of the leaderboards, as others try to beat your longest survival run.

“The studio is celebrating with all Tomb Raider fans, thanking them for being on Lara’s 20 year journey with us,” said Scot Amos, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “The team has packed in surprises, new story, and the top requested special features into this 20 Year Celebration edition.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration (PS4) includes:

- Award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Brutal new “Extreme Survivor” difficulty mode (no checkpoints)
- “Blood Ties” & “Lara’s Nightmare” premium DLC
- Co-op support for “Endurance Mode”, challenging players to survive extreme conditions with a friend
- Re-envisioned cold-weather outfit and weapon for Lara inspired by Tomb Raider III
- Classic Lara card pack which will allow fans to play “Expedition Modes” using one of several classic Lara models
- All existing DLC including “Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch” and “Cold Darkness Awakened”, 12 outfits, 7 weapons, 35 Expedition Cards, and more
- Support for PlayStation VR that challenges players to unlock the mysteries of Croft Manor in first person

“This year we celebrate 20 years of the iconic Lara Croft,” said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “This provided the perfect opportunity for us to deliver a new Tomb Raider experience. With the addition of PlayStation VR support, you can play the world through Lara’s eyes for the first time in franchise history.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration is the most comprehensive edition to date and will be available for the PlayStation 4 on October 11 worldwide. Existing Season Pass holders on Xbox One and PC will receive the “Blood Ties” upgrade for free.

Wow, 20 years! Man, I am getting old.

I had a Sega Saturn back when the first one came out. LOVED that game. I played 2 and 3 on the Playstation. Amazing games.

My kids and I were talking about graphics in games just the other day. I had to show them some examples of what we used to call amazing graphics back in the 90's. We watched some videos of Tomb Raider gameplay. Made me want to grab a controller and start playing.
