SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER 'PLAYABLE
FOR A YEAR'
[ 09 June 2018 ]
Eidos Montreal Studio Head David
Anfossi says Shadow of the Tomb Raider has been fully
playable for a year during an extensive interview on
videogame development in the June issue of MCVUK. Shadow
of the Tomb Raider will launch simultaneously on all
platforms on September 14, 2018.
"The way we develop games here
means we want the full game to be playable as soon as
possible. Because it's a narrative experience, we want
to be able to play the game from the beginning to the
end as soon as possible. So it's all grey, but you have
the right elements. So you can adjust everything at
low cost, because the visual quality is not there."
"By doing this we can iterate
a lot until we are very happy with the quality of the
narration, the story, characters, the balancing of everything.
When we are happy with that, we level up the quality.
Just to give you an idea, Shadow of the Tomb Raider
has been fully playable for a year now.
The full interview with David
Anfossi is available to read via MCVUK.
