Tomb Raider – Guide to Survival Episode 3: Survival Combat


Square Enix have released their third and final installment in the “Guide to Survival” video series – where they look at different aspects of the game and how Lara Croft must use her intellect what else she can scavenge in order to survive her ordeal at Yamatai. In the final installment, we get a look at Lara’s approach to combat.

The elements aren’t the only thing after Lara on the island – predators come in both two and four-legged varieties. Lara’s unlocked skills and weapon upgrades culminate in her combat style, executed in both close-quarters and frenzied firefights.

Outnumbered and outgunned, stealth is frequently Lara’s strongest advantage. Approaching enemies undetected will allow her to pull of silent kills and keep fellow Solarii in the dark. The environment will also provide frequent opportunities for Lara to gain the upper hand. She must always be prepared to brawl up close, however, aided by dodge and counter moves and improved equipment. With wits and weapons combined, Lara is a smart and ultimately very dangerous fighter.
