Rise of the Tomb Raider E3 Primer Trailer

Microsoft is kicking off the E3 hype train early for the Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider

We are just a couple weeks away from E3 with game developers and publishers gearing up to put their best upcoming titles on display. Out of all the groups that are coming to E3 there’s one that everyone has their eye on, Microsoft. The tech giant is shaping up to dominate E3 this year as Sony and Nintendo come up dry for exclusives, while Microsoft is coming out swinging. The Xbox One is boasting an impressive list of exclusive titles including Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Despite anger from fans that Crystal Dynamic has made the sequel to the first title in the Tomb Raider series reboot an Xbox exclusive, Rise of the Tomb Raider is looking like an amazing next entry. Continuing to develop a young Lara Croft into the high adrenaline adventurer we’ve come to know. Microsoft has made it clear how excited they are to have the title be an Xbox One exclusive and today they decided to share that excitement with fans.

They’ve kicked off their hype train for Rise of the Tomb Raider early with a CGI trailer that showcases the voice acting talent that’s going into the game while hinting at what we can expect from its gameplay. It appears Lara’s near death experiences in the last Tomb Raider title have only strengthened her drive to do something great with her life. Looking back on famous adventurers such as Emilia Earhart as she wonders what drove them to scour the world for something greater.

Rise of the Tomb Raider might just become Microsoft’s answer to the Sony exclusive Uncharted series. If nothing else it should help fill the Nathan Drake shaped hole in gamers hearts now that Sony has delayed the next title in the Uncharted series until next year. Provided that Microsoft is able to release Rise of the Tomb Raider this year alongside its other first party exclusives. We’re sure to hear about the games release date and more at the E3 Xbox conference on June 15.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is on the horizon, with our review already available. There’s just one week left until the game’s official release on February 29th, exclusively on PS5. This highly anticipated sequel to Remake, based on one of the most beloved video game stories, is best experienced without any spoilers, according to creative director Tetsuya Nomura.

On Twitter, Nomura made a final request for players and content creators to avoid spoiling the game for others, especially on social media and video-sharing platforms, where spoilers can spread rapidly. Naturally, there’s a specific moment that everyone is eagerly anticipating to see how it will compare to the 1997 original, and it’s bound to be quite chaotic on launch day. Nevertheless, Nomura still holds onto a glimmer of hope for humanity and has made a seemingly impossible request for content creators to exercise a degree of restraint.

It’s important to remember to include spoiler warnings when sharing content related to the game’s story on social media and video-sharing sites to avoid spoiling the experience for others. I would greatly appreciate it if you could avoid using scenes from important parts of the story in your video thumbnails.

Nomura points out that the developers intentionally did not limit the recording and sharing features of the PS5 for any aspect of the game. They believe players should have the freedom to share and discuss their favorite gameplay moments. It remains to be seen if that trust was justified.

Do you think players and content creators will follow Nomura’s request and minimize spoilers? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Xbox may want to become more acquainted with the Platinum Trophies on PS5 and PS4

Obsidian’s first Xbox game, Pentiment, a historical adventure, is now available on the PS5 and PS4. From what we’ve seen, this port of a highly popular game seems to be solid, and we aim to provide you with a review soon. Meanwhile, one aspect caught our attention regarding the conversion that Microsoft may need to address in the future.

Pentiment’s list of Trophies perfectly mirrors its Xbox Achievements, featuring identical descriptions, titles, and icons. There is a slight variation between the two versions: PlayStation offers 42 trophies to unlock, whereas Xbox provides 41 achievements to earn. The distinction lies in the Platinum Trophy, which is awarded once you have collected all the other trinkets in the set.

Since it’s not included in the original game, the developer has not named the trophy, so it appears as ‘PlatinumTrophy’ in the list. This has already generated amusement among Trophy enthusiast communities. “They chose such a basic name for the Platinum Trophy and somehow still messed it up,” a fan expressed.

This issue is quite insignificant in the bigger picture and could likely be fixed with a quick update or patch. As Microsoft gains more experience with PlayStation development, we hope their command of the Trophy system will improve. After all, those platinums are difficult to earn and deserve a more memorable name.

2K Sports unveiled the complete roster for the upcoming WWE 2K24, featuring more than 204 playable superstars, including 70 Legends who are no longer part of the main rosters, along with eight managers. However, fans were quick to point out the absence of some notable names from the list: 7-time WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and former WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Lesnar was previously excluded from the Forty Years of WrestleMania edition.

Following accusations of sex trafficking against McMahon by a former WWE employee, a report from the Wall Street Journal brought the issue to light. Although Lesnar’s name was not directly mentioned in the proceedings, insiders informed the WSJ that he was the unidentified WWE champion in question. McMahon refuted the allegations but stepped down as WWE CEO the day following the federal lawsuit.

Nonetheless, Lesnar and McMahon will still be present in the game. GameSpot has reported that the Lesnar vs. Undertaker match from WrestleMania 30 may be included in Showcase mode. It is speculated that another match already confirmed for Showcase mode (Stone Cold vs. The Rock, WrestleMania 17) will probably include an appearance from McMahon as well.

WWE 2K24 will be available for purchase on March 8th for PS5 and PS4, or March 5th for those interested in the Deluxe or WrestleMania editions.
