    =================

    Update October 15, 2014

    Laragwen asks: Will the Gold Edition physical goods be available separately in Europe as they are in the North American Square Enix store? (Apparently console players can't get the Gold Edition over there.)

    We don’t currently have any plans to do this. The Gold Edition in Europe will contain the physical elements as well as a disc for the game, either on PS4 or PC, and a code for the season pass.

    Harry (from The Music of TR fansite) asks: Will there be an official soundtrack release for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, as Al Wilmer teased.

    No news as of this moment.

    Filarwen asks: Will Temple of Osiris support mixed local/online coop so that 4 people play with two computers online with each other?

    Yes, the game is drop-in, drop-out co-op, allowing you to play with two people on the couch, and two people online, or any mixture there of!

    And-Ray asks: Will there be any type of CD version for LCTOO?

    The Gold Edition in Europe for PC and PS4 will have a disk. In North America, the Gold Edition box contains all of the physical collectibles, and then digital download codes for the game and the season pass are provided separately.

    Maël asks: Does the game have some Easter eggs from past games?

    We pay tribute to past games through costumes such as the Legend Lara pack. As for Easter Eggs, you’ll have to wait and see.

    Update Oct 18, 2014

    Q: What are the system requirements for the PC version?
    A: Click the spoiler button below.




    ---------------

    update oct 25, 2014:

    Q: What’s the function of the Overworld in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: The Overworld was influenced by our learnings from Guardian of Light. It’s a central hub that allows you to easily replay any of the tombs to complete challenges, farm gems, or tackle an area with different friends. The Overworld also gives us a platform for expansion – more tombs will become available in the future as DLC.


    Q: How does the weather system work in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: Changing weather will allow you to access areas of the Overworld that were previously blocked off, such as a flooded area icing over and creating a path. The weather system will also affect tombs, in that elemental enemies will spawn dependent on the current weather system. We’ll chat more about this in the future.

    Q: Are challenge tombs back in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: Yes! They were a fan favorite from the last game. The fact that they aren't critical for story completion means we can have more fun with them.

    Q: Will the cutscenes in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris be digital or drawn, such as in Guardian of Light?

    A: Both – we’ll use the comic-book styling to introduce you to the setting of Temple of Osiris, but also feature in-game cinematics to move the story along.



    --------------

    update Oct 31, 2014

    Q: Who wrote the story of Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: The internal narrative team tackled the story of LCTOO, collaborating with key staff members at Crystal early on to narrow down the setting. They had a lot of fun digging deep into Egyptian mythology and determining the direction to take this adventure.

    Q: Who designed the cover for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: Art Director Brenoch Adams took lead on both pieces, with assistance from our creative agency Volta.

    Q: Who are the voice actors for the secondary characters? Anyone we’d know?

    A: For the English version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, we’ve welcomed back classic voice actress Keeley Hawes as Lara Croft. Additionally, Dorian Lockett voices Carter Bell, Rae Wright as Isis, Jack Tilden as Set/Horus, and our own Brenoch Adams stepped in as Osiris!

    Q: How many hours of playtime can we expect in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: The game length truly depends on your play style, but you can expect a playtime on par with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, with lots in the way of replayability thanks to the Overworld, asymmetric co-op, challenges, and DLC tombs.

    Q: What does Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris add in terms of replayability?

    A: There are lots of reasons to replay the game, be it completing challenges, playing through with a new set of friends, trying out the asymmetrical co-op, seeing how puzzles differ when playing solo, and so on. Also, competing with friends to secure the higher score. And, if you’re a completionist, there are hundreds of items of various rarities to find, the more you play, the more the rarest items (rings, amulets, and weapons) will become available. There are achievements and trophies dedicated to you completing every challenge, which will keep you coming back for more.

    Q: Will Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris be available on the Mac?

    A: As of right now we're just focusing on the title for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Let us know if a Mac edition is something you'd be interested in!


    -------

    update Nov 8, 2014

    Q: Does Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris get harder with each additional player?

    A: Yes, combat and puzzles scale with each additional player, ensuring you’re still challenged when tackling tombs with friends.

    Q: Do I have to play Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris with four players?

    A: No you don’t have to play Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris with a set number of players. You can play with any combo of players, 1-4, online or offline. If playing alone, you’ll default to Lara Croft, equipped with all the tools needed to tackle play solo. Add a second character, and they’ll get a choice of Isis or Horus, adding an Egyptian God to the mix.

    Q: Is there any platform-exclusive DLC for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: All DLC will be available across all platforms when it goes live online.

    Q: Does the game use SteamWorks?

    A: Yes, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris uses SteamWorks for achievements, Steam Cloud save games, multiplayer match making, as well as leaderboards.

    Q: What languages will Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris be localized in?

    A: Temple of Osiris will support subtitles in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese. Full voice over will be available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese.

    Q: Will the Temple of Osiris have a Platinum Trophy for PlayStation 4 players?

    A: There isn’t a Platinum Trophy on PS4 – the rewards are broken down into 1 Gold, 3 Silver, and 8 Bronze Trophies.

    Q: How many Gamerscore points can we unlock for Temple of Osiris on Xbox One?

    A: 1000 Gamerscore will be available to unlock across 40 unique Achievements.

    Q: Does purchasing the Season Pass allow you to download all future DLC for free?

    A: The Season Pass guarantees all announced year one DLC. It does not include any unannounced DLC and/or pre-order incentives.

    update nov 13, 2014 - adding our latest official Q&A session answers:

    1) A Big House: Guardian of Light featured plenty of side challenges for the player to complete throughout a level (e.g. Kill 20 spiders). Does Osiris also include additional objectives like that for the player?



    2) A Big House: Where did you gather inspiration for Lara's tomb raiding nemesis, Carter, and can we expect to see him in future (hopefully) Lara Croft titles?



    3) Tainanlctr: Will there be Steam trading cards?



    4) Tainanlctr: Will multiplayer servers ping locally, such as in Brazil?



    5) RyanCroftsLara: What made you decide to bring back Keeley Hawes as Lara's voice instead of Ludington?


    6) AlexWeiss: What was the process of deciding which qualities of the classic Lara Croft to mix with the qualities of the reboot Lara Croft like?



    7) Farron: If playing local multiplayer on PS4, will you allow all logged in players to receive trophies?



    8) Danielsun: Question: Does the multiplayer incorporate matchmaking and does it allow drop in and drop out?



    9) Eros: Will all characters get bonus costumes in Temple of Osiris, not just Lara?




    ----------

    update Dec 6, 2014:

    Q: Will LCTOO be available on Steam for pre-load?

    A: Yes, it's available now for pre-load. Get on it!


    ------------

    update Dec 10, 2014 - from our live forum Q&A session with Scot Amos:

    Q: I've seen that in the selection screen for weapons and amulets and such there's a selection of upper body clothing pieces, but in all the demo videos I've never seen it being selected. One question has been burning in my mind ever since: are the selectable clothing pieces only there for aesthetic purposes or do they influence the game in some other way as well, such as granting bonusses?
    A: We're thrilled to be bringing Lara back into classic-arcade action so it's great to hear you're excited for it too! As for clothing... the custom costumes are aesthetic based, but, all of the rings and amulets are effects based which can influence your individual abilities OR your team's overall shared abilities; so we have a bit of both!

    Q: Any chance we'll see Totec or any other legacy character as unlockable or downloadable skin packs?
    A: It's certainly been internally discussed, but we haven't yet stated what any future add-ons we may have as throw-back to legacy characters. We'd love to hear what pieces you'd all like to see as such future add-ons for us to consider!

    Q: With regards to the multiple outfits in Osiris, is it possible for the game to be played with characters wearing different outfits? e.g. Lara wearing the DX outfit, Carter wearing the Legend outfit and so on...
    A: We've designed the system as flexibly as possible so you can have each player in a custom style they own.

    Q: Can you share a few details about community-centric features in LCTOO? In particular the community chest?
    A: Since we have such an active and awesome community we've added a new "Community Challenges" system to LCTOO. As often as weekly once the game launches, we'll put up challenges ranging from gather a certain amount of things to kill a certain number of a specific enemy type with specific weapons that everyone who's playing contributes to as they play! In this way, the community as a whole is working towards a reward that everyone gets to share in - such as gems or gear/weapon unlocks. IF the community succeeds at the challenge in the given timeframe, then they can each go to a special gold-chest in the center of the overworld we call the Community Chest where they can claim their hard earned prize! These challenges will ebb and flow as players join the game so we can tailor the challenges... and even unlock a few surprise challenges and custom events long after the game first comes out!


    Q: How much research went into the lore, and does LCTOO stays true to said lore or were some things changed for this game?
    A: The Osiris Myth has many variations and depending on which sources we looked at, there are all sorts of details and twists and turns. For us, we have a few folks that even at the end of Guardian of Light started researching Egypt and looking for an angle on a classic myth Lara hadn't explored yet. When we started Temple of Osiris we had folks here at the studio who'd already done so much research and we had tons of Egyptian Mythology books here that we could reference for how to retell this tale in a unique way built for a lighthearted retelling of this myth, but as a prophecy that Lara now got to be part of bringing to fruition. Certainly all of the key characters and basic touchstones are steeped in the broadly accepted myth; but we did take our own poetic license to make the environment suitably Croft-like in nature to have traps, puzzles, tombs, and a place for Lara to find new teammates!

    Q: How does the Overworld work? Is the game more linear or open for exploration? And how does the weather system factor in to what order you can explore
    A: he Overworld is large, raised Shrine hidden for centuries in a mountainous area of Egypt. This area is the outdoor connective tissue that links the Temple of Osiris (the giant pyramid) with the rest of the tombs and other areas to explore that are each themed to a particular god from the Myth. Each god has a certain element of power they control - such as day/night, drought/rain, or fire/ice. The weather and world state changes affect where you can explore in this overworld, what rewards you can find, and even influence the various enemy types who spawn and it changes dynamically as the game and story progresses!

    Q: Would it at all be possible for you in the future, to create & release a level editor of sorts for the community to make and share their own levels?
    A: Love the idea, that type of user-generated-content has been asked about before. We'd love to hear from our community on this so we can take it into account for our future plans.

    Q: Do you see this as potentially becoming a side-series for Tomb Raider or will it most likely remain as a dualology?
    A: While anything is possible, the "LC" side of the brand is set as our classic, arcade Croft version for now where we get to explore the more exotic fantasy aspects of the franchise's roots and have excuses for giant building-size enemies!

    Q: The god Set in this game looks a lot like the god Anubis and not so much like Set. Seeing how you did a lot of research on Egyptian mythology I can't believe it was a mistake. Any perticular reason for that?
    A: Not a mistake at all... but great noticing the detail! Set's ears are square which they should be based on the old god statues we'd seen in research of various depictions. Definitely lots of similarities between Anubis and Set, but we found enough historic foundation to craft this one be both familiar and still unique to Set vs. the full-on Anubis.

    Q: In the "Four Player Co-Op Mayhem" video we see a bit about treasure chests at the ends of tombs. Do treasure chests replace Guardian of Light's challenges, or is there more than one way to get items?
    A: There are Challenges and Treasure Chests of all kinds in both the tombs and in the overworld. So at the end of each main tomb there is a treasure room... that you can loot, and then replay the tomb and loot again, etc. In the overworld, you can find chests hidden everywhere and the harder to get to ones have loot that is even more rare. Challenges exist per tomb and in each section of the overworld.

    Q: How many customization items are in Osiris, approximately?
    A: Let's see... weapons which come in various rarity and some with special powers, as well as rings, as well as amulets... all together it's over 250 different things and growing!

    Q: Your last developer diary showed off a couple of TOO's boss fights. How do Osiris' boss fights compare to Guardian of Light's?
    A: All of the bosses for LC:TOO were custom built to leverage the mechanics and themes of Lara's new adventure. We wanted to incorporate a strong puzzle element into each boss fight so it wasn't merely a shoot-fest to conquer them but required player ingenuity and in co-op, player collaboration to solve each boss in a different way. We had a dedicated design team per boss fight who would craft an idea on paper, explore, then see if the team could figure it out or take down the boss; and then iterate several times until the right balance of unique mechanics with action felt like it fit into this adventure.

    Q: I loved the Challenge Tombs in Guardian of Light. Does Osiris have Challenge Tombs?
    A: We, too, loved the Challenge tombs and definitely brought them back in full-force for LC:TOO. Can't wait to hear what you think of them!

    Q: Just wondering if these community rewards will be available for "late adopters" of the game, or if you have to be there within the given timeframe to retrieve yours? I understand there's only one chest and everytime a new reward is achieved, it's loot gets replaced, so people who play the game often will get more unique items?
    A: That's a great point... some events only last for a few days, for example, and similarly their reward may only be available for a limited time to collect; then it's hidden away again. Other challenges may go on for weeks and once accomplished, their reward is ever-present so anyone can collect it whenever they join into the game down the road. In general, we want to have the reward tied to the event/challenge where possible so active players who are contributing to the community can get the reward quickly; but we also want to give everyone a chance to share in the events and rewards. Some events we will run multiple times at varying intervals so it may be one week in January, then off; then on again in February, etc.

    Q: What's the penalty for death if you're having fun trolling each other?
    A: You do lose some points upon death so there is a cost that can impact your overall standing at the end of a tomb and will affect certain challenges in specific tombs that require you to NOT die all the way through! But the unseen cost is you will likely repay your 'partner' with the same courtesy so violence provokes violence. In general, we reward co-op play as that's what we're looking for... but we don't stand in the way of players making up their own rules.

    Q: Are there also different difficulty settings in the game options?
    A: We've built LC:TOO to adjust dynamically based on the number of players playing - so more enemies, tougher challenges that change the puzzles depending on player count, etc. We also have some unique live-challenges players can opt-into once we've activated them ... but we'll talk about that in the future.



    ----------------

    update dec 13, 2014:

    Q: In regards to LCTOO, is there going to be any DLC released such as additional characters, weapons, and so on?

    A: While there won't be any additonal characters joining LCTOO, future DLC drops will include Tombs, outfits, weapons, accessories, and more.

    Q: Is the pre-order DLC included if you purchase the season pass?

    A: Pre-order DLC is not included as part of the season pass, but will be available to purchase in January.

    Q: Is the classic Lara Croft skin I've seen screenshots of real?

    A: Yes. For a brief period of time after launch future content drops were prematurely made available on the Xbox One version of Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, including a DLC tomb and classic Lara skin. We’d hoped to keep the latter a nostalgic surprise for you guys, but now you've had a sneak peek at what’s coming!

    As of now, the content has been removed and cannot be downloaded till a later date. The team is still working to refine the post-launch DLC and ensure the new tombs and content bundles are up to the quality you’d expect, so we opted to take the content down rather than release early.

    To be clear, however, if you purchased the season pass, you’ll see the Twisted Gears pack again (coming Feb), joined by the Icy Death DLC (dropping in Jan). Each hosts a new tomb, skin, and assortment of weapons and accessories. Sorry for the confusion!


    ------------------------

    update Jan 10, 2015

    Q: Does LCTOO Community Challenge progress update instantly? Or is there a delay?

    A: There is a delay time on refreshing due to high server loads. This accounts for periods when progress makes a large jump at once.

    Q: Are Community Challenges platform-specific?

    A: Yes, each platform must unlock community challenges individually.

    Q: If a Community Challenge isn't successful, will the item be offered again in the future?

    A: Yes! We'll make sure to offer a second chance at items should a goal not be reached.

    Anywho, still very confused regarding physical or otherwise releases. I'd just assumed the Gold Edition would include nothing but a voucher to download the game.

    Studying the blog post linked above, it does say this:
    Standard - Digital only...
    However, on Gold it says "and the game with Season Pass"

    Now, it could just be me but it looks like they've made a clear distinction between whether the game is digital or not. So, I would assume Gold comes with Disc, of course as it says above, depending on your region

    Well, they'd have to reference the game being included in the Gold Edition one way or another lol. The Gold Edition images released with its announcement had an asterisk mentioning the games were vouchers and not actually pressed discs.

    It's there for the American one though:

    TR2013 did get a physical PC release in European territories, even if it was essentially a Steam version. Still, I might be tempted to double dip if that's the case.

    Not if you realize that some territories are more accepting of DD distribution than others.

    ^ Of course, but I've always thought US and UK media were very similar... Of course US gets all the good TV shows and DVD releases... *cough*TeenWolfSeason3*cough*

    IIRC, TR9 PC was released DD only in the USA, whereas in the UK there were discs.

    Yes, true, but wasn't that just NA? So the rest of the world got discs? (I may just be assuming)

    Either way, it's still weird, discs are still good in my eyes

    Maybe, I don't quite recall. Either way, it doesn't negate the logic.

    Sure. But less profitable in some reasons compared to others.

    I get quite a lot of my video games as presents are there is always something nice about getting discs rather than DD. Forgive me for being very old skool but I love seeing that picture of Lara a few posts above in a classic outfit. Would have been awesome if CD has put that in TR(2013).

    New FAQ items! OP updated.

    Laragwen asks: Will the Gold Edition physical goods be available separately in Europe as they are in the North American Square Enix store? (Apparently console players can't get the Gold Edition over there.)

    We don’t currently have any plans to do this. The Gold Edition in Europe will contain the physical elements as well as a disc for the game, either on PS4 or PC, and a code for the season pass.

    Harry (from The Music of TR fansite) asks: Will there be an official soundtrack release for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, as Al Wilmer teased.

    No news as of this moment.

    Filarwen asks: Will Temple of Osiris support mixed local/online coop so that 4 people play with two computers online with each other?

    Yes, the game is drop-in, drop-out co-op, allowing you to play with two people on the couch, and two people online, or any mixture there of!

    And-Ray asks: Will there be any type of CD version for LCTOO?

    The Gold Edition in Europe for PC and PS4 will have a disk. In North America, the Gold Edition box contains all of the physical collectibles, and then digital download codes for the game and the season pass are provided separately.

    Maël asks: Does the game have some Easter eggs from past games?

    We pay tribute to past games through costumes such as the Legend Lara pack. As for Easter Eggs, you’ll have to wait and see.

    That's settled then, European version comes with a disc. Damn, I really didn't want to double dip PC on this one lol. >_>

    Hoping for good news regarding a possible soundtrack though, we need new stuff for tombraiderstore!

    new!

    Q: What’s the function of the Overworld in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: The Overworld was influenced by our learnings from Guardian of Light. It’s a central hub that allows you to easily replay any of the tombs to complete challenges, farm gems, or tackle an area with different friends. The Overworld also gives us a platform for expansion – more tombs will become available in the future as DLC.


    Q: How does the weather system work in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: Changing weather will allow you to access areas of the Overworld that were previously blocked off, such as a flooded area icing over and creating a path. The weather system will also affect tombs, in that elemental enemies will spawn dependent on the current weather system. We’ll chat more about this in the future.

    Q: Are challenge tombs back in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: Yes! They were a fan favorite from the last game. The fact that they aren't critical for story completion means we can have more fun with them.

    Q: Will the cutscenes in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris be digital or drawn, such as in Guardian of Light?

    A: Both – we’ll use the comic-book styling to introduce you to the setting of Temple of Osiris, but also feature in-game cinematics to move the story along.

    New FAQs:

    Q: Who wrote the story of Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: The internal narrative team tackled the story of LCTOO, collaborating with key staff members at Crystal early on to narrow down the setting. They had a lot of fun digging deep into Egyptian mythology and determining the direction to take this adventure.

    Q: Who designed the cover for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: Art Director Brenoch Adams took lead on both pieces, with assistance from our creative agency Volta.

    Q: Who are the voice actors for the secondary characters? Anyone we’d know?

    A: For the English version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, we’ve welcomed back classic voice actress Keeley Hawes as Lara Croft. Additionally, Dorian Lockett voices Carter Bell, Rae Wright as Isis, Jack Tilden as Set/Horus, and our own Brenoch Adams stepped in as Osiris!

    Q: How many hours of playtime can we expect in Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris?

    A: The game length truly depends on your play style, but you can expect a playtime on par with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, with lots in the way of replayability thanks to the Overworld, asymmetric co-op, challenges, and DLC tombs.

    Q: What does Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris add in terms of replayability?

    A: There are lots of reasons to replay the game, be it completing challenges, playing through with a new set of friends, trying out the asymmetrical co-op, seeing how puzzles differ when playing solo, and so on. Also, competing with friends to secure the higher score. And, if you’re a completionist, there are hundreds of items of various rarities to find, the more you play, the more the rarest items (rings, amulets, and weapons) will become available. There are achievements and trophies dedicated to you completing every challenge, which will keep you coming back for more.

    Q: Will Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris be available on the Mac?

    A: As of right now we're just focusing on the title for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Let us know if a Mac edition is something you'd be interested in!

    This is quite awesome IMO! Also, this finally puts my mind to rest - I was under the impression Isis was voiced by Camilla Luddington for one reason or another lol.

    Can it be December 9 already?

    Aw, man, here I thought I'd have the chance to gun for a shiny LC2 plat somepoint next year, as well as late TRDE one. Oh well, I can only hope the Steam version has 40 (or more) achievements, to match the Xbox One list...

    It'll be interesting to see which achievements will make the cut to fit the 12 trophy pattern (which would add up to a value around 200G). When Xbox Arcade games started coming out with 400G, the PSN version would get stuck with 20 bronze trophies, so while not worth the same the ammount wasn't so different. Now, with LC2 we get 40 achievements in one version and just 12 on the other...


    Thanks for the update, nevertheless. Only one month to go now!
