Next-Gen ‘Tomb Raider’ Sequel “Well Into Development”

TombRaider

This news is about as surprising as the recent revelation that we’ll soon be seeing another Mortal Kombat, but it’s good news, and I like covering good news, so I’m all for chatting about another Tomb Raider game and the myriad ways we can look forward to seeing Lara Craft die.

I’ve played a lot of mature video games in my days, but there were some deaths in the last game that made me super uncomfortable. One thing’s for certain, I will never go white water rafting again. River’s are super dangerous, man.

Since this next-gen Tomb Raider game has been confirmed, and it’s already “well into development,” I’d like to give Square Enix two bits of advice. First, give us some single-player DLC. There’s little longevity in the multiplayer offering, and I would’ve loved to have a reason to return to the game for some more single-player action. Secondly, lower your expectations. When a game sees universal critical acclaim, sells well over three million units and you consider that a failure, something is horribly wrong with your business.

Oh, and bring back the bow. In fact, give me a bow-only mode. Yeah…

What would you like to see from a next-gen Tomb Raider sequel?

    Would like to see them bring back the mansion and the farting butler so I can lock him in the freezer again. Also would be funny to see them bring back being able to swan dive off anything.

    Just Lara Croft is good enough here…!
