Guide to Survival 3: Tomb Fighter

By Bobfish22-02-2013

Expanding on much of what was shown in the previous video (kinda' like that expanded on the first, I see a pattern here) the Guide to Survival series offers us yet more insights into the upcoming Tomb Raider. With less than two weeks to go, we're given a short (five and a half minutes) but very detailed look into the way the combat system works. It's very slick, clearly focusing on a very stylistic approach with the various counters and environmental interactions (making a barrel explode with an arrow? Seriously?) and doing it pretty darned smoothly so far as I can tell. Again, I find myself increasingly excited for what I, initially, groaned and facepalmed at. Also, again, worth noting is all this footage is from the console iterations of the game, which bodes extremely well indeed.

We're also pleased to announce that we now have final say on what the specs will be. See below. Judging from what we've seen so far, that's actually shockingly low end. Especially considering we've also been promised some extra bells and whistles (see below...er) for the PC release. Interesting, but I don't think we need to see more, but what do you think? There's a comments section below just begging to be raided my fellow Larites.
