Tomb Raider’s Story Is Kinda Brisk
We’ve grown accustomed to games with extremely long stories, upwards of 20-30 hours, to the point that shorter games can feel almost like a rip off, at least if they aren’t just a frame device for the copious multiplayer features. But is that true? I think not, assuming the game itself is so good you enjoy playing it again just for the experience.
We’re about to find out though, because the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot is clocking in at a comfortable 4 movies worth of time spent playing. During a Twitter Q&A on november 24, the Tomb Raider team confirmed how long you’ll play, saying “@Ste7enR: @tombraider @crystaldkarl how long will the game be?? #TombRaider” <- 12 to 15 + depending on your play style."
BTW, Tomb Raider isn't just a revival of a dormant franchise, it's also a weird throwback to an older time in gaming: “@DaniiGonzalez26: @tombraider is it true that Lara Can’t swim in the new game, and why?” <- Lara can swim, but just not in this game." So, Lara can't swim then. Weird.
