A tactical approach to treasure hunting.
Square Enix are giving us a more focused look, today, at their upcoming Tomb Raider reboot and it seems like this time around combat will be a main focus.
When Lara spots an enemy, she’ll be able to automatically take cover behind anything that looks like cover. The game wants you to approach each situation by examining your surroundings, and looking for advantages. Lara won’t be wading in with dual pistols this time around, she’ll be sniping with her bow and looking for explosives. After watching the full video, the scenarios feel a lot like Assassin’s Creed; climbing around on ledges, taking out guards stealthily. What do you think?
Below we’ve got a full mission on video, along with commentary by Noah Hughes, Creative Director on the Tomb Raider project:
