The folks over at Square Enix have released the first video in their “Guide To Survival” series for upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The first episode in the series explores how Lara must use her wits to become a Survivor. Though she doesn’t begin as a fully accomplished heroine, she’s smart, resourceful and full of potential.
In the video, Lara will use the “Basecamp” system to upgrade her skills and gear, her “Survival Instinct” to explore on the island, and her signature weapon, the bow. This seems like it could create a very similar feel to what Ubisoft achieved with Far Cry 3 though I have my concerns about them making the game much too rigid and thus missing out on an amazing opportunity. For now though, we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and withhold final judgement. In the meantime, check out the trailer and then hit up the comments and let us know what you think.
