‘Tomb Raider’ survival guide: Episode #2

Tomb-Raider

A couple of months ago, Crystal Dynamics unveiled the first episode of the “guide to survival” series, a set of videos designed to show off new features in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. Here is the second episode in the series.

Episode 2 shows off the game’s fast-travel system, and outlines why it’s necessary: areas of the game can be revisited using the fast-travel system if Lara needs to grind experience or collect more “salvage” (the game’s currency). Moreover, there are many elements of these areas that are inaccessible at first, necessitating the acquisition of new equipment to access them (think Metroid) . Additionally, Lara can investigate the areas and, true to form, decipher the clues hidden in the ruins. It remains to be seen, however, how “open world” this game will be, or if it will be a set of contained areas. Check out the video below.

This survival guide gives yet another reason to be excited for the upcoming action-adventure. Will you be picking this up when it releases in early March? Tell us in the comments, or discuss the game in our forums!
