Tomb Raider: Details on Gameplay, Regenerative Health and Possible Sequel
Unfortunately, Lara’s trip career in the torture porn industry won’t end here.
Global brand director for Crystal Dynamics Karl Stewart took to Twitter in a one-hour lightning round session wherein fans could ask about the upcoming Tomb Raider, a reboot of the popular franchise featuring a young Lara Croft.
Some of the more interesting questions included play length. Stewart stated that the game would last “12 to 15 + [hours] depending on your play style”. He also stated that Lara will have “regenerative” health, eschewing a life bar and typical healing items in favour of this.
@ZenonSamuels poised this gem: “Will the combat system be better than TR:Underworld?” to which Stewart responded, “haha…….OHHHH YEEEESS it will!!”.
Finally, regarding whether a possible sequel for the game would be released should this iteration be successful, Stewart answered, “why of course”. A better way of putting it: If it sells out immediately within the first few hours, you’re damn right it’s going to have a sequel.
Tomb Raider will be releasing on March 5th 2013 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
