Tomb Raider Sequel is ‘Next chapter of Lara’s development’ - Brian Horton (http://electronictheatre.co.uk/pc/pc-news/43392/tomb-raider-sequel-next-chapter-laras-development)


Earlier this year Square Enix launched the critically acclaimed reboot of the Lara Croft story, Tomb Raider. The first chapter in a new series, it’s no surprise that work has already begun on the sequel, though it seems as though development is moving at a swifter pace than some may be expecting.

At last week’s Bradford Animation Festival (BAF), Brian Horton, Senior Art Director at Crystal Dynamics, gave a presentation discussing the history of Lara Croft and the development of this reboot. Covering everything from the redesign of the character to the processes went through in order to make her a more believable heroine, Horton was clearly proud of what he and his team had created. Following the talk Horton was open to questions from the floor, and the inevitable suggestion of a sequel didn’t take too long to come around.

“We’ve announced the sequel… I’m glad I can finally talk about!” Stated Horton. “The Tomb Raider sequel is the next chapter of [Lara’s] development… her life is changing. She can’t go back to the way she was.”

Horton stated that the team at Crystal Dynamics had worked hard to create techniques and tools that would exist beyond a single videogame, notably stating the development of TressFX with AMD. Horton keenly stated that TressFX was still being worked on and that it was most certainly a ‘next-gen’ technology. Of course, Tomb Raider was infamous suggested to be a disappointment for Square Enix despite remarkable sales, and so when Horton was pressed about the budget for the sequel he was noticeably uncomfortable.

“We don’t talk about our budgets… it’s a well financed game,” stated Horton before admitting: “We’re not spending any more on a sequel than on the original game.”

No release date, platforms or plot details have yet been revealed for the next title in the Tomb Raider franchise, though Horton’s willingness to discuss the project suggest that it is further in development than many might expect. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Tomb Raider videogame franchise.

Next-Gen Sequel to Tomb Raider Confirmed! (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=138770)


http://24.media.tumblr.com/cfddbc624f8be8be9b309ea2ced189a2/tumblr_mquyt47Iyq1qkq7tbo1_500.jpg

Good morning all! Some great news from Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Studios, below.*
“Hi - you may have read today that a next-generation sequel to Tomb Raider is in the works. We’re very excited to confirm that the team has started working on telling the next chapter in Lara’s tale. It’s still early days, so I’m afraid I can’t provide any further details for now save my assurance that we’re not resting on our laurels and acclaim from Tomb Raider’s recent successes, but working hard to raise the bar even higher and re-affirm the faith you’ve shown.”


The sequel was mentioned on a blog from Phil Rogers today. To read the complete blog, which has some great insight into Square Enix’s future plans, click here (http://na.square-enix.com/us/blog/note-phil-rogers-ceo).

Noah Hughes talks future of TR in official forum Q&A (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=137813)




Noah Hughes: I think we intend to still take our inspiration from existing myths. In the case of the Dragon’s Triangle, it’s not even a myth, it’s a phenomenon. We like the idea of having that “Google-able” starting point for a lot of these things. That’s part of how we ground Lara’s experiences in our world, rather than living in a parallel world with made-up things. She’s really able to find these secret hidden things that we’ve only heard about in stories. [From official forum Q&A session #13 (June 2013)]



Noah Hughes: People would probably expect us to tell a core Lara story that has a fairly deterministic outcome. Part of what we tried to do was make sure that the player has meaningful choices outside of the core story, and finding ways to wrap those in fictional outcomes in things like mysteries on the island that aren’t fully solved when you beat the game – more a narrative parallel to Lara’s core story.[From official forum Q&A session #13 (June 2013)]

No source to trace back to, unfortunately, but it does quote Darrell Gallagher. However, without a source, the credibility would be nought if we weren't keeping up with development ourselves.

I think she does everything; both motion capturing (face as well) and voice acting. But I agree, her voice sounds very weird in the trailer. Almost like.... OLD LARA?????! :eek:

Valenka
12th Jun 2014, 16:40
Camilla's been confirmed as returning to voice Lara, but there hasn't been a direct confirmation on the motion capture; however, seeing as how they had her record motion capture for the previous game, it's a safe bet she's doing it for ROTTR as well.

Also Camilla said on twitter she did the motion capture for the trailer, so I think that's most likely an indication that she'll be doing it for the game as well. It would be pretty random circumstances to have her do it for the trailer, but not the game. :p

Hmm, it seems that the official press release wasn't posted on neither of the official blogs (tombraider tumblr and SE blog) so that's why I guess it's a bit hard to find.

By the way Good job Valenka on keeping this thread updated :thumb:.

I was wondering the same thing; but judging from posts past, the newsbot automatically posts the tweets and blog posts into The Times threads. The TR blog tends to only be fan-made pieces from what I see on Tumblr.

Just out of curiosity, but why is the member Tomb Raider (news bot) posting blogposts in here, much of which is TR'13 art? I mean, those aren't really news are they, as lovely as it is to see art like that. This is the RotTR news thread after all. Just mah pennies woth. :)

By the way Good job Valenka on keeping this thread updated :thumb:.


Thanks, Rai! :D

I was wondering the same thing; but judging from posts past, the newsbot automatically posts the tweets and blog posts into The Times threads. The TR blog tends to only be fan-made pieces from what I see on Tumblr.

Yes, the Tomb Raider account automatically posts what is posted on the official twitter and blog. The latter mostly contains fan art when there is no daily news to post.

I guess it would be possible to have those fan art posts go to the dedicated fan art thread, but it would require more mod work.

If anyone feels up to the task, let me know, and I'll see if we can reintroduce that deputy mod program again :)

Hey Valenka..... :)

I was actually thinking about that; doing the news in descending order from newest to oldest. I wasn't too sure though since previous Times threads had it the way it currently is in the OP. I'll ping Driber about it before I start changing everything; I'm just adding news to the OP, I don't want to overstep my bounds. :p

I'm good with going the new-to-old route in the OP for the time being. It makes sense for now, while there isn't news coming every single day. Perhaps closer to launch we'll re-construct the OP more like the TR9 The Times.

IGN ran an article about the recently announced novel, and there were some questions in the comments section that we wanted to answer. “Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals” is a traditional novel, as opposed to a graphic novel, and it will become canon within the franchise. It takes place immediately after the events of the Tomb Raider 2013 game, and before the events of the Dark Horse comic series. They each cover a different part of Lara’s time and development before “Rise of the Tomb Raider” begins.*

Dear Tomb Raider Community,

As you may have seen, we’ve just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming Holiday 2015, is exclusively on Xbox. We consider all of you to be the lifeblood of Tomb Raider and the work we do at Crystal. I’d like to give you some insight into this decision, and why we feel this is the very best thing for the Tomb Raider sequel we’re creating at the studio.

Tomb Raider in 2013 was a success due in large part to your continued support. Our goal has always been to deliver something truly special with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today’s announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3&#160;2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

We know that there are probably many more questions and concerns. Please do send them to us, and we’ll answer to the best of our ability. Meanwhile we’re going all out to try and make something truly special - the most ambitious Tomb Raider game ever built.

Thanks,

Darrell Gallagher
Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios

Tomb Raider
22nd Aug 2014, 22:50
Thank you for sending us your comments and questions. We looked through the posts on several channels and collected the questions you asked the most into the following FAQ.


What does exclusive to Xbox mean?
It means that Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming Holiday 2015 exclusively on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Does the exclusive to Xbox have a duration? Is it timed? How long is the duration? Can we expect a PlayStation 4 or PC release in the future?
Yes, our deal with Microsoft has a duration. We aren’t discussing details of the deal, and are focused on delivering a great game on Xbox One and Xbox 360.*

Did Crystal Dynamics know about this deal?
Yes, Crystal Dynamics is excited to be partnering with Microsoft to make the best game possible. As Darrell mentioned in his message (http://tombraider.tumblr.com/post/94529480860/rise-of-the-tomb-raider-update), we have a long history with Microsoft and they have been a very strong supporter of the franchise. They will help us grow and nurture the Tomb Raider franchise more than ever before.

Were the fans considered when making this decision? Are Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix aware of the franchise history with PlayStation and on PC?
Of course.* We did not make this decision lightly. Our goal is to build the best game that we possibly can, and our relationship with Microsoft will help us realize our vision for the game.

Why didn’t Microsoft, Square Enix or Crystal Dynamics say upfront it was a timed exclusive? Why all the indirect language?
We certainly didn’t intend to cause any confusion with the announcement. The Microsoft Gamescom stage was a great place to make the initial announcement, but not necessarily to go into details.

“We had plenty of collectibles and treasures to grab which all goes toward end of level bragging rights and helps keep that friendly competitive rivalry alive and kicking. With loads of enemies, a decent amount of puzzles and traps to keep us on our toes, and even a mad dash along a crumbling walkway. Before we knew it the level and our time with the game was over. It seemed to go by so quickly. I could have happily played the entire game there and then.”

“Do not stand up against / me as witness; do not contradict me in the court; do nothing against me in front of the deities; / do not treat me with hostility in front of the Keeper of the Balance. You are my Ka (life-force), which is in my body; the creator, / who makes the limbs of my body whole; you may come out to the beautiful place, which is there prepared for me. Do not cause my name / to stink in the presence of the members of the court, who make people to resurrected (at) the beautiful place. Excellent is it for the posers; a pleasure is it / for the judge. Do not speak lies against me beside the great god.”

-A translated section from the right scarab, which is from*spell 30B of the “Book of the Dead” (trans. Walters).

Scarabs in ancient Egypt.

One of the most well-known amulets from ancient Egypt is the scarab, which represented the dung-beetle. These amulets were usually made of faience or stone, decorated with an almost endless*repertoire of geometric and figurative designs engraved on the base, and came in various sizes.

Originally a form of personal seal, scarabs took on the role of good-luck charms. The scarab-beetle itself was*associated*the Atum and the sun god Re, both deities concerned with resurrection and rebirth. The idea that the dung beetle was symbolic of rebirth and regeneration was probably inspired by its life cycle. When the beetle laid its eggs hidden in the sand, the newly hatched insects would emerge from seemingly nowhere, as though they were the result of self-generation.*

Large scarabs with engraved text from the Book of the Dead were used as a substitute for the heart in burial, intended to ward of evils and help gain the joys of the Egyptian paradise. The scarab shown in the right image is one such heart scarab. This funerary amulet was intended to have a supportive function for its deceased owner in the Court of the Dead, as illustrated by its translated text at the start of the post.

Both chosen examples of scarabs are from the Walters Art Museum (http://thewalters.org/),*Baltimore, and via their online collections:*1984.30.5 (http://art.thewalters.org/detail/1011/scarab-amulet-2/) &*42.81 (http://art.thewalters.org/detail/27145/heart-scarab/). The first dates to*946-525 BC (Third Intermediate-early Late Period), and the second,*1070-736 BC (Third Intermediate).

When writing up this post*Rosalie David’s*Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt (Penguin UK, 2002) was of use.

Ah AOD. The game that aspired to be much more than it could handle. I still enjoy it nonetheless. I kind of wish games today would stop trying to focus so much on realism, and develop their own art-style. Like these sketches show.

Why SE or Crystal Dynamics didn't release at least trailer gameplay or trailer cinematic (GC) in the PAX, or they are saving it for the next E3 coming?

I would imagine they're waiting for the next big event, like you said, E3. PAX is big but not as many people know about it like E3. Plus I just don't think they had one ready just yet.

““Revealed for the first time at this year’s New York Comic Con was the fact that the game supports an overworld that connects all the tombs together. There’s a central hub where players can restock on ammunition, pick a tomb, and head towards it. If you’re unsure where to go, using the staff will cause various statues to point the way for you. The overworld map looks pretty expansive, and the developers promise that more tombs will be added to it as future DLC is released.””

The Wilbour Plaque. Egypt,*Amarna Period, ca. 1352-1336*B.C.E. or slightly later.


The Wilbour Plaque is named for the early American Egyptologist Charles Edwin Wilbour (1833–1896), who acquired it in Egypt in 1881. The small slab is not part of a larger scene but complete as it was made. It was intended as a sculptor’s model, to be studied and imitated by students and beginning artists. With the hole at the top, it could be hung on a workshop wall. On the left is the head of a king, most probably a representation of Akhenaten, who wears the baglike khat headdress with a royal uraeus. Opposite him is the head of a queen wearing the ovoid cap crown often worn by Nefertiti, also with a uraeus. Both heads have ear holes for earrings. The carving is a splendid example of the elegant royal style that developed toward the end of the Amarna Period. (brooklyn)

"…Which Man deemed old two thousand years ago,

Match me such a marvel save in Eastern climate,

A rose-red city half as old as Time.”

-Section from John William Burgon’s “Petra,” Newdigate Prize poem, 1840.

The Theatre of Petra, Jordan.*

Deep within Jordan’s desert, situated between the Dead Sea and the Red Sea, lies the hidden city of Petra, one of the ancient world’s greatest marvels. This*Nabataean caravan-city has been inhabited since prehistory, and was an extremely important crossroads between*Syria-Phoenicia, Egypt,*and Arabia.

Petra’s temples, dwellings, and monuments were for hundreds of years the centre of a*splendid civilization. Surrounded by mountains, the city is half-built, half-carved into the rock. Certainly one of the most famous archaeological sites of the world, here ancient Eastern traditions blend with*Hellenistic architecture.

The Theatre of Petra is carved at the*foot of the High Place of Sacrifice during the reign of King Aretas IV (4 BC-AD 27). Seven stairways ascend the auditorium, and it consists of three rows of seats, which have been separated by passageways. The Theatre is able to accommodate about 4000 spectators. It has undergone several successive alterations and enlargements, the Romans, for example, rebuilt the back wall and stage. This would have been a hugely important building for the city, as it was likely used for both public meetings and plays. The back and stage were once richly decorated with columns, as well as imported marble statues in the Roman period.

Contest: Team Fortress 2 Meets Temple of Osiris

Are you a Team Fortress fan looking to immortalize yourself in the game? Or a Tomb Raider fan eager to share your love of Lara?

We’re buddying up with Team Fortress 2 for a Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris competition (http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=14855), allowing fans of the franchise to create their own maps, weapons, and items inspired by the Tomb Raider universe. Valve and Crystal Dynamics will vote on the winning items, which be made available for free to anyone who preorders Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on Steam. In addition to making their mark in the game, victors will also unlock a suite of Square Enix games as a reward. The contest closes on November 20, and the winners will be revealed no later than December 2.

Some housekeeping: Participants must submit their creations through the Team Fortress Item Import Tool and tag them with “Tomb Raider” for official consideration. Read over the full rules and regulations here (http://www.teamfortress.com/tombraidercontest/), and then get creative! Use Egyptian mythology and our official assets (http://www.laracroft.com/images/) as inspiration – keep classic Lara in mind. If you’re not the artistic sort but want to benefit from the creativity of others, you can pre-order Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris here (http://store.steampowered.com/app/289690/)*and gain access to the fruits of their labor on launch day.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris releases December 9, 2014.

Osiris is usually identified as the god of the dead, underworld, and afterlife. As shown by the examples of his depictions, he is classically presented with green-skin, a beard*fastened by a chin-strap, crowned, holding a crook and flail, and with partially mummified legs.

“What was the process of deciding which qualities of the classic Lara Croft to mix with the qualities of the reboot Lara Croft like?

Scot Amos, Executive Producer: This is classic arcade Croft. This is us saying, what is the core of Lara Croft and what was fun in the predecessor Guardian game? What is the gloves-off, no excuse, do what the fans want version of her adventures? Sure, there is mysticism in all versions of Tomb Raider, but for us, in Guardian and Temple, these are the playgrounds where we let Lara go a little bit further. We get to go a bit over-the-top with high-powered elemental chain guns and renewable explosive mines as well as building sized godlike enemies. It’s taking fans’ asks, modern expectations of the franchises, and balancing that to a fun, single and co-op player, classic Egyptian setting, adventure.

Robert Siwiak, Producer: This is the classic Croft that challenges gods on her weekends.

FREE - Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris OST!
We’re super excited to announce that the full Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris soundtrack will be released for free on our newly-created SoundCloud account (https://soundcloud.com/crystaldynamics/sets/lctoo).
Composed by the talented Wilbert Roget, II (http://www.rogetmusic.com), we’ve uploaded the first eight tracks this morning along with notes detailing his inspirations and influences. Look for another drop of music next Monday.
Are you a music aficionado and want even more insight into the soundtrack? Check out The Music of Tomb Raider (http://www.musicoftombraider.com/2014/12/lara-croft-and-temple-of-osiris.html), one of our official fansites, for an exclusive interview with Roget.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris launches tomorrow, December 9, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Secure yours at BuyLaraCroft.com (http://buylaracroft.com/).

"The [Lara Croft Overture] presents Lara’s theme, performed on the English horn by Kristin Naigus. This was the first piece I wrote for the score, with the intention of creating a sonic guide for the rest of the soundtrack. I focused on showing the juxtaposition between Lara’s posh, educated British upbringing and her perilous archeological adventures. While most of this track intentionally steers clear of overtly Egyptian sounds, its ending introduces an Arabic flavor that characterizes the rest of the score.”

“Playing alone, discovering the different flavors of each new temple and figuring out the solution to a brain-busting puzzle all by myself is satisfying; replaying with others doubled that satisfaction because developer Crystal Dynamics renews the challenge with creative new twists on previously conquered obstacles that require teamwork to overcome.”

"[Introduction – The Curse] is the underscore to the opening movie of the game, and introduces some of the principal themes in the score. After a mysterious introduction with an oud solo (a plucked banjo-like instrument played by Stelios Varveris), Isis’ theme is heard on flute at 0:22. It is immediately followed by a blast of the theme of Set, the main antagonist in Temple of Osiris. The cue ends with a subdued recap of Lara’s theme." - Wilbert Roget, II / Lead Composer, Music Supervisor

[Army of the Dead] is the tutorial level’s action theme. I wanted something fun and encouraging to start the game off, so I used a catchy bass rhythm and a high strings melody that immediately gives an Arabic feel. This track also shows a bit of the Indiana Jones influence in my use of brass climaxes and syncopated orchestral stabs.

“[Ammit, Devourer of Souls] is the theme for the keeper of the underworld – a giant female demon with the head of a crocodile, body of a lion and hippopotamus. Because of the curse placed on Lara and Carter in the introduction, Ammit seeks to devour their souls throughout the entirety of the game. I played a very effects-heavy flute solo in this track to give a frenzied feel to this chase scene.”

"[Beneath the Desert Stars] and [Knives in the Dark] comprise the first overworld music suite. Our overworld works a bit like a world map in a role-playing game, connecting the tomb levels with an exterior level that also has puzzles, hidden loot and combat of its own. Temple of Osiris has four overworlds, based on weather and daylight. The first is Night, as the villain Set has used his powers to cast all of Egypt into eternal darkness. For [Beneath the Desert Stars] I used sparse, sparkly timbres set against moments of silence to represent starlight amidst the darkened landscape. A somber variation of Set’s theme can be heard on flute, as well as Isis’ theme on English horn halfway through the cue. "

"[Knives in the Dark] is the combat variation of the Night overworld suite, and so I wrote a cue that uses lots of pizzicato, rushing staccatos, and sneaking sounds to represent enemies scurrying in the cover of darkness.

"[Tomb of the Timekeeper] is the first tomb level in the game. We had an unusual method of producing the tombs’ music – instead of writing faux-ethnic melodies for the soloists, I created low drones (sustained single notes) based on the basic harmonic progressions of the tombs’ respective action music. I decided on one solo instrument per tomb, and sent that tomb’s drone to the performer along with a description of the tomb and some general musical ideas. They would then freely improvise over the drone, using their own idiomatic performance techniques; For Timekeeper we used the kemenche (viol-like fiddle played on the knee), performed by Stelios Varveris. I then took those improvisations and wrote orchestral music “around” them, editing the recordings in various ways to fit rhythmically and harmonically. Ultimately this gave us a much more authentic sound than if I as a composer were to attempt to write Arabic-esque melodies, and it also gave the tombs a mellow, ambient tone appropriate for exploration and puzzle-solving."

"[Ambushed!] was an interesting track in that it originated from one of my failed attempts at a main theme for the game. Later on I wanted an action cue for a setpiece where Lara and friends are trapped and ambushed by enemies, and I realized that the rhythm and feel of this track actually worked perfectly for that scene. So I reworked the melody and changed the harmonies around to fit the new placement. Speaking of the melody, the horns theme in this track is a reference to Khepri’s theme, the scarab boss whose minions players have been fighting these first several levels. "

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris: Community Challenges*
As many of you have noticed, LCTOO’s Overworld features a shiny landmark near Osiris’ shrine called the Community Chest. The chest is where you collect prizes from weekly community challenges.
What’s a community challenge, you say?
Community Challenges
While LCTOO features a slew of goodies to uncover in the world, either through unlocking treasure chests or via tomb-specific challenges, we’ll also reward you for working together towards the bigger picture.*If you want to get your hands on special items like gold weapons, bonus bags of gems, and some accessories with hilarious side effects, pay attention to our weekly community challenges, detailed in LCTOO’s main menu.
This week’s challenge – Burn Baby Burn – tasks the community with killing 5,000 exploding flaming mummies using your SMGs. Do so and you’ll all be rewarded with a Gold SMG. Once unlocked, you can gather your reward from the Community Chest in the Overworld. Please note – challenges are platform-specific. You’ll have to work with other community members on the PS4, Xbox One, or PC to unlock the rewards separately.
Challenges will run Sunday (12:01 AM PM PST) to Saturday (11:59 PM PST) each week. The reward will be available in the Community Chest as soon as it is unlocked, but will only remain for 24 hours (11:59 Sunday night) after the challenge closes. Don’t forget to pop in and secure your prize! If you miss out, we’ll likely offer the item up again in the future.
Set’s Challenge Weekends
Every once in a while we’ll throw in a secondary weekend challenge for good measure. Running Friday to Sunday, these challenges will mostly reward large bags of gems or offer a second chance at items.
Community Events
From time to time we’ll also host Community Events. You’ll be able to opt into these if you’re looking for something extreme – like playing with an unending shower of flaming meteors. Attempt an Overworld combat challenge with an event turned on to earn ultimate bragging rights. At the end of the event, survivors will be rewarded with a bag of gems.
Good luck, and have fun!

“[Tomb of the Silversmith] begins with a brief cutscene where Lara, Isis and Carter enter the tomb and discuss some hieroglyphics that explain the myth of Khepri – an ancient beetle god that has been corrupted by the evil Set. The ambient section begins later, and features an Arabic guitar called the oud (performed by Stelios Varveris). As with the other tombs, Stelios played an improvisation over my bass notes, which I then edited and wrote orchestral music around.”

“[Apep, The Serpent] by Paul Houseman plays during the sub-boss fight against Apep, a giant jeweled serpent guarding the exit of the Tomb of the Silversmith. It was originally written for the Khepri boss battle, but as development progressed, that fight became increasingly chaotic and required a different approach. We decided Khepri’s music should be rewritten, and the sub-boss Apep should have his own unique music, so we modified this track and used it for Apep. The core of the piece is a fast, relentless percussive rhythm that gives a heart-pounding sense of panic for this action-puzzle fight.”

Various sparkly timbres play throughout the cue to represent the copious treasures in these reward rooms, and the piece ends with tense high string chords that convey Isis’ desire to reunite with her husband after so many millennia."

"[Under the Desert Sun] and [Blood on the Sand] comprise the Daylight Overworld music suite. These two pieces were actually the first tracks I wrote for Temple of Osiris after completing the main theme, and so they were also crucial in establishing a tone and instrumentation for the rest of the score. Under the Desert Sun starts with a brief statement of the main theme on duduk, followed by a tuneful English horn melody (both gorgeously performed by Kristin Naigus). I used bright Arabic-esque string arrangements and a solo frame drum (performed by Aaron Craft) to give a feel of travelling through the Egyptian desert in burning sunlight. Lara’s theme is stated more fully with a cello solo towards the end of the cue (performed by Sebastian Freij), recapitulated in high strings that again give a sense of the desert heat.”"

"[Blood on the Sand] is the combat variation of the Daylight overworld suite. I used fiery North African percussion (performed by Doug Perry) as well as handclaps and a pulsing 5/8 cello riff (performed by Sebastian Freij) to give a driving action sound.

Special Community Challenge: Pulling the Strings
We’ve queued up a new holiday community challenge! All three platforms unlocked “Game, Set, Match (http://tombraider.tumblr.com/post/106633299445/community-challenge-update-game-set-match)” by banishing Set to the underworld 1000 times. The reward was an arena battle event that just went live today, and a new community challenge along with it. To activate the event you need to have it enabled in the LCTOO options menu.
“Pulling the Strings” tasks you with defeating Set’s Osiris Puppet in the Khepri Amphitheater 1,500 times. Interact with the obelisk, which appears after completing the Tomb of the Silversmith, to get the event underway. Remember, challenges are tracked per platform – so the Xbox, PlayStation, and PC communities each need to work together to finish a challenge and unlock the prize.
"Pulling the Strings" rewards players with Set’s Silver Flail and a huge bag of gems. Both the event and the challenge end 1/10 at 23:59 PM. After this special community challenge we’ll return to our regular weekly Saturday-Sunday programming.
Also, congrats to the PS4 community for polishing off “Payback Time (http://tombraider.tumblr.com/post/105879990270/weekly-lctoo-community-challenge-payback-time)” – taking out 200,000 baddies with the chaingun, and unlocking a huge bag of gems as a reward.
Good luck in the amphitheater!

“[The Hidden Tomb] plays when players find and enter one of the hidden challenge tombs in Temple of Osiris. It begins with a brief harp and flute flurry that references the Tomb Raider 1 “hidden item” stinger, then continues with calm and moody ambient orchestral music that features woodwind solos throughout. Since there are no enemies in these challenge tombs, I was free to use these quiet and emotional moments freely without worrying about melodies being interrupted.”

“[Khepri, the Sun Beetle] is the first true boss theme in the game, a giant flying scarab that has been corrupted by Set. Clustery strings and quirky muted trumpets play as Khepri is seen fluttering past the players in the opening cutscene, followed by a brassy blast once he lands and reveals his tremendous size. The entire fight takes place on a giant spherical rock that periodically rolls about through the level, and so I used wild string flourishes and runs to represent this chaos. The strings melody after the introduction is a sort of mini-motif for Khepri, previously heard in the [Ambushed!] cue a few levels before, and Set’s theme is played on brass towards the middle of the cue to show his evil influence on Khepri.”

“[The Shrine of Osiris] plays in the hidden underground machinery of Osiris’ shrine – a giant wheel used to control the passage of day and night, and the patterns of weather. When Alex Wilmer (our audio director) first explained the concept of this room to me, the idea seemed so evocative that I immediately heard this music in my head; It was clear that a grandiose, reverent piece paying respect to these ancient Egyptian gods was needed. To convey this magnitude, I juxtaposed fast-moving background textures with a very slow, soaring melody on strings and horns. Isis’ theme can be heard on solo trumpet halfway through the cue, played majestically by Laura Saylor.”

“[Riddles of the Ancient] is used during a few of the more complicated puzzles in the game. When I write game scores, I like to play through them on my own exactly how the gamer will ultimately play them – no cheats, no walkthroughs. There were a few puzzles that took me a while to solve, and so I decided to do some extra cues here and there that would encourage players during these moments. This track draws particular influence from Indiana Jones in its harmony and orchestration, and uses dramatic swells and passages to represent little “ah ha!” moments the gamer would hopefully experience during some of these trickier puzzles.”

“[The Floodwaters Rise] (composed by Paul Houseman) is the combat variation of the Rain overworld suite. Paul had a lot of fun with this cue, combining elements of the Egyptian Arabic flavor with a new, flooded water element. The rhythmic ideas were written first as an underscore to Lara Croft’s characteristic acrobatics, and melodic and textural ideas came later on, accentuating the watery setting.”

Available Now: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Icy Death Pack
Ready for a new tomb to tackle? Today marks our first major DLC drop for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.
The Icy Death pack includes treacherous new puzzles to solve and enemies to defeat. It also includes fresh weapons, rings, amulets, and a skin for Lara which will look familiar to fans of Tomb Raider 2013.
You’ll find the entrance to the new tomb in the recently-unveiled Sunken City. Those who have purchased the season pass will have access to the pack content for free.
Also available today – if you missed out on our pre-order bonuses, all three outfit packs are up to purchase now:


Hitman themed skins including the iconic Silverballers and The Agent ring, which gives your character increased weapon damage and more powerful bombs.
Deus Ex themed skins, including Adam Jensen’s signature combat rifle and the Augment ring, which allows your character to upgrade items using 10% less gems.
Tomb Raider Legend skins including a golden pistol and The Legend ring, which gives your character health regeneration powers and a more powerful torch.

Keep an eye out for our next DLC drop – Twisted Gears – due next month.
*Please note – those who haven’t purchased the Season Pass or individual DLC bundles won’t be able to enter new tombs. You can still join into a friend’s game if they own a downloadable tomb, but the DLC areas won’t show up for the party.
