I hope that jaycw2309 will forgive me for posting his picture from TRF over here but it's too awesome not to show it and it's only a cover not scans.

The perfect way to highlight how Lara isn't coated in her "teflon beauty" anymore.

I love it!!!! :D:D:D

The colouration of the oufit looks way more like the classic outfit so think that is a massive improvement. I love the way the light is shining on her in the picture. I thought the initial concept art was very shaky but this is much more back on track and I like it.

Kind of ironic that they've got "Secrets of the PlayStation Network Revealed" on the cover given recent events. Bet they're grimicing over that one.

Yowza, I didn't even notice that :lmao::lmao:

The hazards of print publication, where design has to be created long before the issue ever hits shelves.

That image is so...

unflattering.

It's like being caught in a photograph when you're blinking. It's like looking at an image of a cat cleaning itself with its tongue.

I feel nothing.

So Lara should have been posing for the camera? It's supposed to look like she's in a state of disarray, a moment of time captured that tells a story of hardship and struggle. Hardly material that is meant to be "flattering".

That's just the thing.

It looks like she's posing. Like some person put her in that pose to make the image.

There's no natural quality to it. Its a very unimaginative, full-frontal shot. There is absolutely no engagement with the viewer.

Agreed. That thing just screams: "Let's go at it "Descent" style!"

She certainly needs to have more ripped clothing.

i think it is still grey just in different lighting

Funny to hear that because quite a few non fans have been very engaged with the cover.

NEW IMAGES


[edit: link removed, video contains scans. - Driber.]


I have the strangest feeling about this game, maybe it will bring back the TR generation Or it will be an epic fail but it looks like its far from that :D!!!!! Hopefully the game will be good so i can stop watching Jersey Shore!!!

That is a great front cover:D. This is the first image I have seen of the new Lara that I can actually believe is Lara (and could actually grow to like):thumb::thumb:. Thank goodness she looks feminine again and does resemble a plausable young Lara. For wounds, face structure, breast size, detail etc this pic works.

I just wonder if that tear on her trousers will continue as the game progresses to make shorts:D.

TrickyVein

I know, right? It's like if everything else fails, there'd be a reason to keep playing.

She definitely doesn't have a man-jaw in this pic, I'll give the artist that much.

At least they've given her her chest back. Hate the hair. Has this image got anything to do with the gameplay or is it just advertising?

Only Lara can pull off this look and still look beautiful. :rolleyes:

The image is so... crisp, sharp, and fresh. Exactly how they wanted to depict Lara and the new game. :flowers:

I'm just a bit worried though.

I've read in the Spanish magazine that this new TR is actually inspired by other games. (e.g. Uncharted, Half-Life 2, Batman Begins)

Tomb Raider was always known for its original concepts and gameplay, and I'm just a little nervous about whether these borrowed elements would work with TR and Lara. :o

I hope it does though--The new render looks so frikking epic. :thumb:

Don't worry. ;)

I'm sure CD is going to gather up the best features from all these games and create an awesome Tomb Raider experience. All these titles are very popular and successful.

Too bad we cannot compare the old screenshots with the new ones but I can see a huge improvement in graphics. I hope that someone will upload the media thread with some nice wallpapers from the playstation magazine cover. ;)
That would be cool, wouldn't it?

Incredible! I'm a 23 year old male and when I saw that picture pop up on facebook this morning I screamed a little like a small girl at a Bieber concert.

I can't wait to see more! This is my #1 game to look forward to! I'm buying a 360 just for it!

Cannot. Wait. For. Pick-axe. Fun. Epicness!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this would be the first time she would ever use a melee weapon, right? :O

(Excluding the punches and kicks Lara could do in TRAOD, TRL, and TRU.)

yay. The man-jaw is gone and her breasts are back. Now I can have much more confidence in the new Lara.

Honestly, I've been going over the Internet the last day and a half and (yes, I'm generalizing) it seems most "fans" are in a state of "Wurz da boobz and pouty lipz!!!" syndrome. The picture wasn't supposed to be flattering and was supposed to engage the viewer in a far more subtle way than the typical video game chick winks at camera with a "you know you wanna bang me" look.

I just removed the large repeated image from 2 posts in a row.

Guys, when you need to quote someone, try to remove large images from the quote in your post. This cover was already posted in the first post here, we don't need to see it over and over again, cluttering the thread.

Thanks :)

I think the latest Lara magazine covers are very thematic and quite awesome. Those images portray much.

I agree. I'd love to see a cutscene where that tear unravels and she is ends up just cutting to the pants and revealing her iconic shorts. IMO revealing that look in game would be in line with what this game is supposed be doing... telling a story of how Lara became LARA.

I hope not!

Thank God it's just a concept that it isn't the same as what was in the in-game screenshots.

One of the reasons this Lara is more relatable is because her body is at least proportionate, I don't want any motivation for this Lara to be considered another major sex symbol. :eek:
