New Tomb Raider Announced

Another bit of news from the Unreal Engine 5 showcase is that the new engine will power a new Tomb Raider game that's now in development at Crystal Dynamics. This tweet has word: "Crystal Dynamics is incredibly excited about the future of Unreal and how it will help us take our storytelling to the next level. That's why we're proud to announce that our next #tombraider game is being built on Unreal Engine 5!" It also includes a video message, and here's a transcript of that:
Crystal Dynamics is proud to be a part of the launch of Unreal Engine 5. This new engine translates into next level storytelling and gameplay experiences. And that's why we are thrilled to announce today that we have just started development of our next Tomb Raider game, powered by Unreal Engine 5. Our goal is to push the envelope of fidelity, and to deliver the high-quality cinematic action/adventure experience that fans deserve from both Crystal Dynamics and the Tomb Raider franchise. We can't wait to take this next journey together. Thank you, and congratulations again to the Epic Games team.

That last one was one of the best looking, worst written games I've ever played. I also felt like I was never getting out of that valley. They sure did milk that location.

Im excited by this. Using the new features of UE5 to implement a major step foward in game graphics is going to take some major skill and time from developers, and im sure the Tomb Raider people have the budgets needed.

How about take the gameplay to the next level? She better have dual pistols in this game.

I'd rather see her with dual cannons once again.

Yeah it did have weak writing but I think the locations were so well done that it just kept me going for the wonder and exploration. Things looked stunning and made me feel I was in these exotic locales. Easily able to look past the writing which I normally need for a good playthrough. Oh and the graphics of the cinematics didn't hurt either. Lara looked, goooood for a 3D character, lol.

I would definitely pick this up but now that we're entering UE5 era, I would definitely need an upgrade. I think my 1070 has taken all it can.

...and how it will help us take our storytelling to the next level...

They definitely need all the help they can get to take it to ANY level at all Wink .

Seriously, the past trilogy certainly had its qualities with nice visuals and superb level design but the characters, the writing and the storytelling... ugh. That was some rough shit right there. Especially the first two games were cringefests. Shadow was at least bearable.
