In a Twitter question-and-answer session, the devs for the eagerly-anticipated new Tomb Raider game have let a few new details drift out into the open.
There will be no health kits in the new game. Lara’s health will regenerate in the trendy ‘regenerating over time’ way that most shooters have adopted. But that’s not all…
Lara will also not be able to swim. We think. The wording of the tweet is a little confusing (“Lara can swim, but just not in this game”), but either Lara will not be able to swim or, perhaps more likely, there will be no water deep enough for her to swim in.
The game’s length has been announced as well, at about 12-15 hours’ worth of play. Not too shabby for a single-player campaign if it’s compared to a few other games we won’t mention.
