Tomb Raider concept involved horseback riding and Shadow of the Colossus sized enemies
Tomb Raider may have had made a giant leap with the latest reimagination of the series, but things could have been completely different if this concept footage is anything to go by.
The reboot was originally titled Tomb Raider: Ascension and has Lara on an island fighting against supernatural enemies. It appears that the game took a few tips from Team Ico’s games as enemies towered far over our heroine, horseback riding with a bow and arrow and sections of the game would feature a small female companion – just like in Shadow of the Colossus and Ico.
While we loved Tomb Raider, we can’t help but imagine the possibilities of Ascension. Take a look at the footage below and let us know what you think in the comments box.
