The new Tomb Raider game is quite different from the past entry of the series: the game requires a lot of skill to survive the harsh environments of the island and the tricky puzzles found in the temple. While the game is not overly difficult, there are some elements new to the series that players need to know if they want to play the game right and enjoy the game to the fullest. Tomb Raider clearly stresses out the survival aspect of the new Lara Croft adventure and we’ll be going over some basic tips to guide you in the wilderness of the jungle and survive all the dangers. Most of these tips will help you in reading the environment better, as well as improving your combat skills. As already stated, Tomb Raider requires quite a bit of skill during all moments of the game so knowing everything about your basic actions can make you go a long way. After we’re done with the basics of the game, we will be delving deeper withing the game, also covering in details all the skills that Lara can learn during the course of the game: managing these skills is fundamental in surviving the huge jungle and conquering the game.
This one may be quite obvious but given how big the island is, I think it’s right to talk about the exploration basics of the game: as you may already know, not all areas will be available to you at the beginning of the game. Once the game begins, you may want to explore all your surrounding as much as you can: you’ll surely reach some areas which can’t be explored. Once you proceed through the game you will obtain some new items like explosives and the climbing tool which will allow you to venture further into the island. The best thing about exploring every section of the island even when you can’t reach them is that you will be able to save time with the fast travel option from camp: this will also allow you to keep track of all unexplorable areas and prevent you from wandering aimlessly in trying to find the area to go to next. So exploring is never a bad thing in Tomb Raider and the more you explore, the less time will be spent trying to find the next area later in the game.
