Rise of the Tomb Raider : Siberian Wilderness Impressions



At E3 2015, Crystal Dynamics showed us a demo of well 15 minutes depending on the second location where it will take place Rise of the Tomb Raider.
The demo shows how Lara has to survive the hostile Siberian envioronment , full of storms and dangers at every turn.
The demo begins from the point where the gameplay of E3 Live has left us:
Lara wakes up in a strange environment, without his trusted Jonah who escaped after the avalanche, telling him at the radio to dont follow her because he will not be able to search her.
Lara will have to fight their way through the storm and high snow to reach an old camp, which will have to rebuild with wood.
I really liked the animation of Lara, and how she reacts when the snow is high enough: she becomes increasingly slow and proceeds to great lengths to escape the snow.
When Lara walks in the snow you can see his tracks, and also those of her two axes.






Now we pass to one of the great innovations of the game (and its predecessor): The base camp.
This time the camp is far more structured than its predecessor,it seems much more complex.
Lara now needs to collect many materials (specifically 60 for location) and will have to subsequently combine them together to obtain new objects, as in this case the poisoned arrows or others.
Lara now will have many more abilities available compared to Reboot.
And I loved the fact that when you go to camp in abilities you can see Lara  near which tests the skills and other things, very nice!


And now,lets continue !
While Lara is in camp, he hears a strange voice in his radio talking about an artfact and a misterious organization , Trinity, already felt in the past from Lara, but without knowing much about it.

Not to dont die for freezing , Lara has a rest in the rebuilt camp.


Lara wakes up immediately feeling a guard near her camp and immediately escapes by climbing through the trees to avoid being seen:
Lara can now climb trees stealthily to kill the enemies, can also hide in the bushes, and can interact with nearby objects to distract the guards , in this case Lara blows barrels of lighting a small explosive


I like that the combat system is changed,i really like to climb trees and hide with envioronment !

Ok,Lara goes and she finds a little surprise : Her first "Boss" : A Bear
Lara has to escape but unfortunatelly she was defeated by it !



 Lara now has to pick up Materials to bring her health to normal by using some natural bents
She finds an Old base occuped by Trinity and the first part ends here !



And here we go the second little part of the Demo where we can a Lara with a different outfit and a new bow !



We will have an encounter again with the Bear that we faced last time , but this time Lara can defeat it with her new bow , we can see Lara that uses bends to increase her life to dont die !
I Really like her new outfit but maybe they can solve some bugs , like for example the radio that is not placed to the belt , but i really like it ! We can see the snow on her hair,and her clothes



Lara now goes into the cave to discover what is in .. WOW , the ice effect is amazing , in the ice cave we can see that the snow on Lara disappear and we can see that when Lara enters into the place is getting a little bit wet for the ice !
We finally arrive at the end of the Demo,Lara discovers a really spectacular Tomb !!





So,we finally arrived at the end !
