View Full Version : RUMOUR: New TR to be announced on Dec 6th?

This 'info' has not long appeared on other TR forums guys I thought i would share it here, as usual take it with a pinch of salt ;)


There might be a new Tomb Raider game on the way, if teaser artwork in the new issue of Game Informer has been deciphered correctly.

A two page spread in the latest issue, posted on NeoGaf, shows a shipwrecked vessel, the words "A survivor is born" and a reveal date of 6th December.

So, why might this point to a new Tomb Raider title? Well, you may remember back in July last year leaked information suggested that the next game in Eidos' long-running franchise would see Lara Croft shipwrecked on a mysterious island off the coast of Japan.

A website has also gone live bearing the words "A survivor is born".

The last 'traditional' game in the series, Tomb Raider: Underworld, came out in 2008 with Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson awarding it 7/10.

Then earlier last year we had the excellent top-down spin-off, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Eidos and parent company Square Enix haven't commented on the Game Informer image so you'll just have to wait until next month to find out what exactly is afoot.

I love speculating, especially when it comes to Tomb Raider. :D
The artwork looks really nice! But can it really be the new Tomb Raider?
If CD wants to promote LCGoL until December, wouldn't it be too fast to announce the new title?
Oh, and jayjay, thanks for the news! :thumb:

Either that or maybe a PS3 version of this:

If it is TR it had better not be released until it's finished and polished!

Think I might be happy with either one of those, so who knows!?:)

Cheers for the info though by the way!

It's unbelievable how much hype this information caused on the other Tomb Raider Forum.
I also want it to be the announcement for the new TR game but I rather take it with a pinch of salt. I cannot imagine the drama, if it turns out that this ad does not refer to TR9. :D

I've gotta say, I hope this rumour isn't true. I'm tired of her history constantly being changed. We have Core's Lara, the movie's Lara, and Crystal's Lara. We all know how she got started with her adventures....Von Croy anyone? :hmm:

Awesome :D I rather like the look of this.
Does anyone think the colour scheme from what we've seen in the leaked material is similar to the logo? Or am I looking too deep into this.

@Natla Or the song perhaps :p

@Katie The "end game" looks a little scary to me. Although it probably doesn't mean what I first went to :)

I don't think so. There already is lots of info about that one, so there's no point in making up a whole new website for a game everyone already knows. And 'A survivor is born' doesn't make any sense to.

True but I been reading people ideas.

Possibly Tomb Raider
Possibly Uncharted (As Naughty Dog have been hard at work work)
Possibly a new IP

Whatever it is it'll be released 2012... either that or it's 2012 the game:lol:

Considering the high chances it'll be out in 2012 that'll mean they probably have been working on it for around four years correct? (give or take a few weeks or months as staff aren't going to start straight on a brand new one the next day, they do have families that are probably their priorities) So if the game has loads of glitches or doesn't have a strong and high level of polish to it then there is no excuse... think GTA IV, Heavy Rain, Resi 5 and all had about four years development and they turned out fine.

Though I'm sure I remember a game being developed a few years back with the codename of 'survivor' - Think that may have been canceled though, just a shot. ;)

All I'm seeing is what appears to be a couple of freighters caught in some rough water. Unless the young Lara was working as a merchant marine or a stowaway, I don't see any connection to a Tomb Raider game.

There were rumors that the game would take place on a lost island after Lara's ship wrecked.

Also it was supposed to be an origin story, so "A survivor is born" could refer to how this is what made Lara, Lara.

Very interesting :)

I just read the following snippet over at NeoGaf:

... and the Google Analytics account number, less the last two digits, matches a number of Eidos/Squenix sites -- K&L2, Mini Ninjas, Deus Ex, the new Lara Croft, Just Cause, etc. So it's Eidos/Squenix

& of course, from the original leak:

When a sudden storm destroys her research vessel, a young and inexperienced Lara Croft finds herself stranded on a mysterious and remote island hidden off the shores of Japan.

If my memory serves me Lara isn't supposed to be alone on that research vessel. She will be a part of a research team, I think. Maybe other survivors will play a crucial part later in the game. I guess that would be quite cool.

I don't mean to be a naysayer, but unless somewhere in the artwork an Eidos or SE logo can be found making it authentic,
it's still only speculation and the pics could have come from anywhere.

Believe me, I'd think it's more likely to be released 2012 and not 2011. Why, cause whatever game it is doesn't the URL on the site once it's loaded say something along the lines of 'asurvivorisborn2012'.

But Ascension was the low-budget film they did a while back... Providing this is indeed a TR game as it doesn't say anything about a Japanese Island or Lara Croft.;)

I'm with Katie on this one not to happy about changing Laras background and childhood etc ...again

would like something different but not something saying 'oh yeah forget what we told you before because this is the new background of lara and we wont change it again *cough*'

could be interesting as to where this goes, bring on dec 6 then :)

16th Nov 2010, 22:03
Wow, it would be cool if they gave us some news about the next game. But, I agree with some of you. I'd hate it if they changed her history, again. I love her CryDin history, it's awesome!! I guess we'll have to wait 3 more weeks to find out...

chriss_99
16th Nov 2010, 22:28
Changing Lara's biography is definitely a step back. However, I have a feeling that the origins story will somehow be joined together with her current bio. Wouldn't it be cool to see Amanda and Lara as friend again? I think it could be interesting. I still think Amanda is one of the best villains ever!
What worries me the most is the lack of dual pistols! Will the bow become her standard weapon?
I'm really looking forward to seeing some news.

It can't be, that game was announced 3 years ago and it has no gameplay videos or screenshots to date. It's probably cancelled...Besides, "I Am Alive" has absolutely nothing to do with ships or islands. TR9 is still at the top of the list.:D

Lets say it is and it's likely she'll be without her pistols which generally doesn't bother me but it'll be interesting if they remove weapons (gun kinds) from the entire game if it is indeed set entirely on an island. I say this cause I've always found it weird when she'll go to a tomb and suddenly she'll come across a gun that just happens to be laid out on the floor.:scratch:

I'm hoping it adds an actually melee combat system as well as focusing on more face-to-face fights rather than stand a distance and shoot. I'm thinking like this:

Of course, I doubt Tomb Raider would ever get so damn scary or creepy but hey, I hope it's got an atmosphere especially if they rid unlimited ammo!:D

Yeah, it was. Personally I hope it´s not going to be named Ascension at all and that it won´t be linked in anyway to that ´movie´ (:eek::o), but those who wrote this article (http://systemlink.gamersguidetolife.com/2010/11/new-tomb-raider-game-leaked-coming-2011.html) have found this information on the LinkedIn profile of a Motion Editor. Then I found out who´s profile that was and everyone could see that it was true (the picture in that article was a real screenshot and not some edit). The information (name, spelled like ´Ascention´ by the way and the year 2011) was removed shortly after this and the profile is now private (was public). That´s all I know.

Lame if true that means they're changing Lara AGAIN and I didn't like the idea of the rumored crap I heard the first time. Now if this ends up being the new TR then all that was rumored would be true and would definitely disappoint me.

I'm praying that this is another game and not one we've heard rumors about. If its true it sounds like one TR game I will not touch.

But I'll wait and see before making judgement

Your posts have always been grungy and unpleasant to read and make sense of...
Seriously though, I don't think anyone actually cares whether or not you'll touch this game. Personally, I'm hyped up for the idea and I'm sure everyone else who's commented on this thread is. It's fans like you who've always been holding back the series and keeping the developers close-minded. I'm just saying...:)

And josh is the grungy, unpleasant one?
LOL U MAD?

I would argue that the "fans like josh" are helpful in keeping a series from going all over the place. And if they are reinventing Lara's past (for the like 3rd or 4th time), then they are spot on with the "going all over the place" thing. I understand they wanted to change things the first time from what Core established and do their own thing when they did it with Legend. But why reinvent what you invented? What's the purpose? Especially if some people are just getting used to the change...Change isn't bad but frequent inconsistent change, well...

If anything the developers remain close minded when everyone throws rainbows and smiles and gives them the okay with everything they do. js :thumb:

I'm kinda on the fence. I admire CD for not listening to the fans cause quite a number always seem to want the same game again and again, which from the point of view of a player (me) it becomes increasingly boring and I like the possible horror vibe they could add (something even horror games seem to be failing on) . I doubt I'll be buying it brand new or at least rent it first.

But maybe PS3 gamers will get a demo this time around?

As for changing her again, I think CD are perhaps trying to please a different type of gamer.

I suppose but I'm glad they are going in a completely new direction, will add a fresh take on the series as Underworld for me felt too samey cause they didn't really take many risks with it, kinda like Resident Evil 5, it was good graphically and technically but it was still in the Resi 4 mold.. seen it before kinda thing.. then again I'm one of those who does actually like change sometimes.

I just hope they aren't going to far into the realms of Silent Hill cause Silent Hill is great at what it does and I think TR would lose even more credibility. But hey, thats the vibe I get from the supposed scenario.;)

The one thing that bothered me the most about this leaked info (the text that got leaked a long time ago) was that it seemed like TR would become more focussed on combat. I hope it will still remain just an ´extra´, an occasional enemy to fight to keep the tension in the game going or a boss to face now and then. I would really hate it if an enemy or a swarm of enemies showed up after each step. That would completely ruin the experience for me.

I like a scary game or movie, but it should be done well. When you just put as many scary moments as possible into something, it works against you. For example in a game, you will start to expect it and the tension is lost. If you keep the moments far apart, then it will get really scary. At least, for the first playthrough. ;) Unless you somehow manage to let the enemies spawn at random times and places, now THAT would be wicked. :D

I would like to see a lot of caves, tombs etc with good variety. Creepy, dark places with scary noises, traps and stuff like that and beautiful, serene environments. :)

Anyway, I´m not so worried about a change of bio. It has been done before, I don´t think I even know her bio and to be honest I hardly care. I would appreciate it if the dual pistols would be in the game though, but I wouldn´t die if they weren´t. They could be ´introduced´ in the next game perhaps. We´ll see.

Well no that why Metal Gear Solid is still to me, one the of the best made game franchises. That's why it still continues to sell by the bucket load. They build it for three different players. If you want to crawl about and out everything to sleep (even bosses) then you can. If you want to play it as a Third Person Shooter you can and if you want to play it as a First Person Shooter you can.

Now with MGS 4, I never once looked at the combat aspect and thought, hey! That ruins the stealth element cause the fact is the options up to you and they don't really force any particular play style on you, except for the odd shooting sections that last about 10 minutes each.

Now I won't be buying the game at say £40 to run around an island with a few enemies here and there and have some half-done combat system when I do come to a combat bit like Underworld did. From games I want to chose how I play them, not be forced to play them cause theres only one real play style. I change, one day I want to go on a game and seem how many kills I can rack up but then the next day I want to just explore (Fallout for example) My two cents anyway.:)

It's not a reboot as such, its just a chronicle which explains how she became such a strong minded person, i dont know why people seem to think its going to wipe legend off the board? I think this will happen some time before the event in peru with amanda and the entity...

I seriously hope this isnt going to be some creepy silent hill/resident evil type game :(

I really really reallly wish they'd go back to legend style, I know it was more of a james bond type of experience but i thought legend was the most fun game of all!!!!!

Well I hope they re-do the enemies as the whole "look shes a girl and has hair covering her face" is getting extremely old and boring! I've seen so many things with the same thing, just like the whole Atlantis city thingy, that's not very interesting anymore either.

So I hope they add scarier enemies as for me its something TR has always lacked cause I remember playing the likes of Resident Evil and Silent Hill cause they were awesome and then started on TR. To me going into a tomb thats apparently never been entered before will have some pretty morbid creatures, ones which will be used to the surrounds putting them at an advantage. For me anyway.:)

Not all Japanese mythology is about long black haired ghosts. xD

Take the Kuchisake-onna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuchisake-onna), for instance.

The statue is bald, or better yet, APPEARS bald. The woman herself had hair. I don't think a samurai would marry a bald woman or take in a bald concubine.

I've just been looking at some games that haven't properly been announced (I don't think anywho) and I came across Resistance 3.

Follows the man (forget his name) who gave up his gun-shooting days to start a new life, his family are taken, as always he has to get them back. But apparently a bit of it takes place on a ship that will likely crash.

EDIT - Theres a trailer so it's already been announced.:lol:

But apparently Sony are supposed to be announcing an exclusive game between the dates of 1st December and the 12th.:scratch:

I was sure about it. I mean they never make a TR for buy and download online with no physical package so far, so G.O.L. should be a pre-game, spin off.. something. I hope it will be a new TR :). I got so excited when I red this :).

I really hope it's not that PS3 exclusive Sony has been boasting. Why do I say this?

Well just think about it, folks or just us, have been making a big deal about GameInformers' January cover. If, like some people have gone farther and traced the site back to one Crystal/Eidos have used(If they are to be believed) the odds are it's TR9! Unless Crystal/Eidos have an even bigger cash cow?

Putting 2 and 2 together, my first thoughts were. Why would GameInformer make a big deal for TR9 over a major PS3 exclusive? Unless TR9 is a PS3 exclusive?! And I don't think that's the case here. So where does this put us, you may ask? That website and game is probably a new IP for the PS3 that SE is pushing and maybe it has been put in Eidos' court, not necessarily with CD's involvement.

Now I'm an optimist at heart, let's keep our hopes up, I have. I've tried to flesh out what CD has in store for us in TR9. If all the leaked info is to be believed (And I say this again, I'm an optimist at heart) me thinks, TR9 will have something to do with the "Dragon's Triangle/Devil's Sea" the clues are; Off the coast of Japan, in an Island, shipwrecks= "Dragon's Triangle" in my book and I'm sure they'll have a ridiculous explanation for said paranormal activity. So long as it is as much fun as LCGOL I'm game.:thumb:

23rd Nov 2010, 09:10
But I read a report last night that Naughty Dog will be unveiling Uncharted 3 following the success of the second in the series which leads me to believe that is the PS3 exclusive but... dunno it doesn't feel right.

I doubt that will be Sony's secret game as they put it cause everybody knew it was coming and the voice actors even said it was so it has already technically been announced.

But I agree with you naraku, cause why would a game magazine chose a game like Tomb Raider which for most gamers they probably don't even give a second glance (harsh but going off underworld) over an exclusive game by one of the big companies?:scratch:

But I highly doubt Sony would take TR on again as they do have uncharted, thats their Indiana Jones so I doubt they'd want another.

Wait a minute, guys, the PS3 exclusive and the game that will be featured in the Game Informer mag are two different things! Well, most likely.

I am 99% sure that the Game Informer cover has to do with Tomb Raider. There are loads of clues pointing in that direction.

True. I'd say it was more 50 - 50. The only clues you've got is a ship wrecked boat and a survivor, she survived a plane crash so to me the whole 'a survivor is born' is a bit pointless that's the main thing to which points me in the opposite direction. Plus it could generally be anything. Don't get me wrong I'm interested in that artwork that was 'leaked' so it would interest me to see how much they've improved.:)

As for the cover thing. The only thing that makes me believe that is that Sony are going to announce it either on or around the 6th December.

And in the link itself it says 'a survivor is born 2012' meaning it's connect with two years from now, not 2011 like that report sheet stated.

But one thing I happily agree, on it's pretty interesting to see peoples views and what not!:D

I've heard stories that the Next Resident Evil game is going to be unveiled early December as well. C'mon Capcom, show us what you've got!:cool:

So we have Uncharted 3 being announced by Sony early December and maybe a new Resi title... Awesome stuff! All 'apparently's at this stage but hey!

Dunno why I'm bothered cause I no longer own a console 'better' than the PS2 and have no intention of buying a new next gen console just cause it broke!

True but hey, I' intrigued to see where Naughty Dog are going graphically with Uncharted 3 and see were Capcom are taking their Horror franchise (granted, now-a-days missing the horror)!:lol:

But either way, I've noticed (going back to the cover story business) that franchises are getting reboots. Capcom plan on taking Resi back to it's roots, TR apparently going open-world and have no idea about Uncharted.

I hope next issue is a bomshell that sends ripples throughout the TR fandom and media. One thing that is clear though, more hubub is being made for TR9 than SE's own FF series.

IMO Underworld was the best TR since TLR, but I don't mind losing "Underworld 2"

What I'm after is:
1. Make it a sequel. You can make it more mature, make it sandbox etc. Lara lost almost everything in TRU so a fresh start could be symbolic
OR
2. Actually create a new franchise. New game title, new main character, change whatever you wish. Back in the day TR1 was a huge success and I'm sure it could happen again

Well, Underworld didn't sell very well, at least not compared to other franchises which in a way were just as popular as TR back in the good old 90's. So I think CD knew that they had to basically change everything otherwise it was probably pointless.

But saying that it's probably easier to create a new game off the back of another franchise than create a brand new one as they know hard core fans will buy it no matter what.
