No problem playing it but the game is going the way of many new games and requires that Steaming pile of sh*t that is Steam so even though I have bought and played all the TR games since 1996 I won't be buying this one.
Info from http://tombraiders.net/stella/tomb9.html
It will be available for Windows PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will be digital download only (no physical DVD) in the Americas. Both downloadable and DVD versions will be available in Europe. (Details about other regions have not yet been announced.) The developers have said they are striving to include full keyboard and mouse support for the PC version.
Nice of them to consider making it playable with k/board and mouse, WTF
Info from here.
Q: Is Tomb Raider a Steamworks title?
“Yes, Tomb Raider uses Steamworks for achievements, Steam Cloud save games, multiplayer match making, as well as leaderboards.”
MULTIPLAYER, the best single player game ever and they have to try and m/p it, just how the hell is that going to work
Q: Will the game require the disc to be in the computer or is it able to directly download from Steam?
“Yes, when you buy the game in a store you will get a CD-Key for Steam. Just entering this code on your Steam account will allow you to download the game, so you do not necessarily need the disk. The disk is just there so you do not have to download all that data.”
Q: Will there be any DRM?
“We do not believe in strong anti-consumer DRM methods, so apart from the game using Steamworks and it having to be authenticated with your Steam account there is no additional DRM.”
Another game that will be unplayable and worthless after it has been activated, the used game market is dying rapidly as most new games require one time activation.
F**k Steam and the shi**y attitude that so many game makers have toward game buyers these days, yet another piece of software you buy and don't own because it's useless and worthless after activation.
