There Are Some Promising Action-Adventure Games Coming Out Soon
People who play a lot of action-adventure games should be rather excited. After all, a number of promising titles are expected to come out in the not so distant future, with examples including both Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Spider-Man. Unfortunately, most people have no more than a limited amount of spare time, meaning that interested individuals might have to start making plans about what they want to play as well as when they want to play it.
What Is Shadow Of The Tomb Raider?
The current incarnation of the Tomb Raider series started up in 2013 with the release of Tomb Raider. For those who are unfamiliar, Tomb Raider and its follow-up Rise of the Tomb Raider are intended to show how their protagonist Lara Croft transformed from the stranded survivor of a shipwreck to the battle-hardened master of her surroundings that she was bound to become.. Now, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is promising to bring that particular part of Lara’s tale to a close by showing her final step to becoming the figure that long-time fans will remember from the pre-reboot Tomb Raider titles.
Story-wise, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be featuring Lara searching for a Mayan relic that is being sought after by Trinity, which is making a return from Rise of the Tomb Raider. Unfortunately, Lara’s expedition results in her kicking an apocalypse into motion, with the result that she must scramble to stop events of her own making. Gameplay-wise, Shadow of the Tomb Raider promises to be similar to its predecessors but improved in various ways.
For example, it has been mentioned that it will be featuring more 3D exploration, which means improved climbing as well as improved exploration of underwater settings. Likewise, a fair amount of marketing has been focused on the introduction of more sophisticated enemies as well as more ways to handle them, with an excellent example being how Lara will now be able to camouflage herself for the purpose of getting the drop on Trinity soldiers as well as others. Should Shadow of the Tomb Raider be as much of an improvement compared to Rise of the Tomb Raider as Rise of the Tomb Raider was to Tomb Raider, it could be very promising indeed.
What Is Spider-Man?
Meanwhile, Spider-Man is an upcoming title about one of Marvel Comics’s most famous superheroes. However, it won’t be based on existing Spider-Man material but will instead feature its own material, which should provide it with that much more freedom. Regardless, Spider-Man is exciting because it will be featuring the masked web-slinger operating in the open-world environment of New York City.
So far, it is known that a fair amount of the planned narrative will be centered on Mister Negative, who is the supervillain alter-ego of a philanthropist named Martin Li. This is a huge complication for Spider-Man, both because of the physical threat represented by his foe and because of the fact that his Aunt May actually works for Li at one of the F.E.A.S.T. shelters that he operates throughout the city.
With that said, while the narrative promises to be refreshing, the more exciting part should be the gameplay, which will be featuring everything from stealth mechanics to environmental combat, the crafting of combat-usable gadgets, and a wide range of capabilities based off of Spider-Man’s superpowers. Even aerial combat has been mentioned as something that will be making it into the finished title.
Should You Play Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Or Spider-Man?
Summed up, it is clear that both Shadow of Tomb Raider and Spider-Man are rather promising titles. However, there are various ways that interested individuals can choose between them. For example, if someone is a fan of either the Tomb Raider franchise or the Spider-Man franchise but not the other, it would make sense for them to choose one over the other. Likewise, interested individuals might want to want for the titles to come out so that they will have the knowledge needed to make a fully-informed decision between the two. For that matter, it should be mentioned that interested individuals don’t necessarily have to choose between the two, seeing as how there is no reason why they couldn’t play one and then pick up the other at some later point in time.
