I had read our positive review of the 2015 Xbox One version of the game. I’d seen colleagues say it was one of the best things on that console. But I really had no idea how good Rise of the Tomb Raider was until I finally played it the PS4 version last month. I had assumed Uncharted 4 had eaten its lunch. Nope. This…
The part of 2015 Xbox One game Rise of the Tomb Raider that will be new to all gamers this week is Blood Ties, an expansion being bundled with Tuesday’s PS4 release of the game and being offered as paid $10 DLC (or part of the season pass) for Xbox One and PC. It’s mostly a Tomb Raider version of Gone Home.
Well, guess all that worrying was for nothing. Despite fears from the scene that Denuvo’s famous “anti-tamper measures” were making it impossible to illegally share video games, it’s emerged over the weekend that one of the industry’s most stalwart defences against piracy has reportedly been cracked.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will finally come to PS4 on October 11, Square Enix announced today. It’ll come with all the old DLC as well as a new pack, Blood Ties, that will also be sold separately for the Xbox One and PC versions of the game.
Poor Lara Croft. She didn’t deserve this.
So far, Lara Croft has battled mercenaries, wild animals and ancient mystical warriors in Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today, she starts fighting against enemies that used to be human but are now more like feral animals.
Not too long ago, I was nonchalantly browsing through Facebook, when I happened upon a video (below). Its description read “No music, just pure straight-six eargasm.” My immediate reaction was “This is exactly what I need right now.”
On a popular torrent site, Fallout 4 has been downloaded nearly 140,000 times. Nearly 200 people are downloading right now, as I write this. AAA or indie, Fallout 4 or Super Meat Boy, it doesn’t matter. Piracy is inevitable. But a torrent doesn’t appear out of thin air.
Lara Croft’s going to fight zombies in Rise of the Tomb Raider’s next DLC. The Cold Darkness Awakened add-on hits next week, bringing with it a mini-campaign that has the heroine facing off against infected, rabid enemies.
More than two months after release, it’s still not possible to pirate Just Cause 3. The same is true for Rise of the Tomb Raider, released for PC in late January. Cracking computer games used to be measured in hours or days, but now, it’s turning into weeks and months. The nature of piracy is changing in a big way.
Rise of the Tomb Raider has gotten its first PC patch. The patch fixes some bugs, adds a bunch of small graphics tweaks and optimizations, and remedies Endurance Mode stuttering, among other things. Full patch notes here.
I don’t want to make too big a deal about this but did you see the way her shoulder knocked those bricks loose???
Why don’t more games have a Big Head Mode? This needs to become a thing again.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was released as an Xbox exclusive last November, a decision that took some serious flak from gamers ever since it was announced. Microsoft was out looking for a new flagship game for its console, a game that could be as significant as PlayStation’s Uncharted. So far it’s proven to be a winning…
When we last saw Lara Croft, she was growing out of being a victim. A victim of fate, of other people’s aggression, of her own uninspired previous playable incarnations. She’s still growing, but she’s different now.
Sometimes you just want to play a really pretty PC game, and in walks the PC port of Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to Steam and Windows 10 on January 28, Square Enix announced today. Well, that was quick!
Lara Croft really didn’t have to worry about eating or staying warm in the main portion of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Oh, she got cold sometimes but you knew it wasn’t going to kill her. But, in the new Endurance add-on for her latest game, Lara Croft can freeze to death or die if she hasn’t eaten for a while. Like she…
