HOW MANY LEVELS WILL THERE BE? WILL THERE BE A SYSTEM WHERE YOU CAN CHOOSE WHICH WAY YOU GO THROUGH THE GAME, LIKE IN TOMB RAIDER 3?
No - the game will be linear so there will be no choice regarding order of locations. Lara will have to revisit certain points (we're calling them hubs). There will be around 15 'levels' but final number tbc. As stated earlier, this is a continuous adventure so the word 'levels' isn't really applicable. Size-wise it's around the same as the previous TR games, but the locations themselves are smaller and mostly inside.
DOES LARA HAVE NEW GUNS TO PLAY WITH? IS THE COMBAT SYSTEM ANY DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST TWO?
Yes - we've got some new weapons - including a crossbow. Weapons will be low-tech due to the fact we're in ancient locations. We'll have choice of ammo for weapons such as the shotgun. Combat system is certainly changed - as stated above. The majority of weapons can be targeted by the player and the crossbow will have a laser-sight. This weapon is also used with a first-person perspective.
SO, HOW FINAL IS THE END OF TOMB RAIDER 4?
Well, the title certainly seems to imply that... but who knows!
WHAT ABOUT LARA HERSELF?
Lara is now skinned and has remodelled hands and head! She can blink and her mouth will move so that she will actually be seen to talk in cut-scenes.
She may look toward certain important objects, features. This will help toward detection of small objects and interactive objects such as door handles and switches etc.
