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.
