So a trailer and cover wasn’t the only Rise of the Tomb Raider items that dropped yesterday – there was also an interactive page!
On this page, there are audio recordings of what I can only describe as Lara’s journal(?). They are narrated by the lovely Camilla Luddington, the voice talent of the original reboot, about the different challenges that Lara faces in the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider game. It’s great for building up the story and I think it does a great job as a taster for E3 and the game. The clues are hidden and you can find them by carefully scanning the page with your mouse. When you do find them, it pays off. I’ve found 5 so far…
From Game Informers’ coverage of Rise of the Tomb Raider, we know the organisation called Trinity will be a significant party in this adventure (they’re also mentioned in one recording). What I’d like to know is that the book that came out last year: Tomb Raider – the ten thousand immortals is supposedly canon. There, she’s already fought Trinity and from the ending I think Trinity thinks Lara is dead… Plus if this is canon, can we have another Lydia in either this game or a future one please? There aren’t many female antagonists but I think Lydia will be a fine one now that the ten thousand immortals are no more.
