Rise of the Tomb Raider Level Hubs to be Three Times Bigger than in Previous Game

Rise of the Tomb Raider 3

With Gamescom next week we’ll be hoping to get a look at Rise of the Tomb Raider, and see more gameplay footage. Until then though Examiner have managed to get a look at a new demo which gives a glimpse at the hub sections of the game.

If you’ve played the reboot of Tomb Raider you’ll remember that between each story driven level of the game there are “hub” sections where you can hunt, find collectables and discover hidden tombs to be explored. This is something that will be continuing in Rise of the Tomb Raider.

In the demonstration that Examiner has seen they are reporting that these hubs will be three times the size of the ones in the first game and will also feature chances to do side missions with allies. This is good news for people who are fan of exploration as Rise of the Tomb Raider appears to be focusing on this to add to the game.

Along with Siberia that is the area we’ve previously seen in demos, Syria will also be a second setting in the game. Siberia will be the main setting for the most part though, which is probably why the focus has been on this area when it comes to the gameplay videos.

Another interesting addition is a Translation System that will be in use in the game. Lara’s Language Proficiency will grow with each Scripture, murals and other historical object she discovers. This will improve her ability to read languages, such as Greek, which will be one of the languages used in the game.

While Crystal Dynamics didn’t reveal any other languages that will be used, the system does hint that there will be more. Through having a better Language Proficiency Lara will also be able to discover more clues to hidden tombs along the way.

Finally there will also be a return to the tombs being a dangerous place to visit, with plenty of traps awaiting Lara. Hopefully this hints at a move to make it actually feel like Lara is the “Tomb Raider” we expect her to be. Something that was lacking in the previous game.
