Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a third-person action adventure, the eleventh title in the Tomb Raider series, and a sequel to the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider. Players use a wide variety of weapons to take out enemies, use the environment such as explosive barrels or cutting rope-wrapped structures, or utilize stealth techniques. Gained experience points can be used to improve skills.
Taking place one year following the events of Tomb Raider, Lara Croft is experiencing PTSD due to her experiences on Yamatai. In a search for answers, she decides to revisit her late father's research on a quest for the lost city of Kitezh, which is told to hold the secrets of immortality.
Rise of the Tomb Raider received positive reviews with an average score of 88%, praised for its graphics, environments, and stealth sections, though criticized by some for underdeveloped characters, simple story, and some technical issues such as the game's frame rate.
The game is fairly average in terms of difficulty, though will require a bit of time. At least one full playthrough on Survivor difficulty is required, and plenty of collectibles to find, as well as getting gold medals in all levels. However, the game includes both a free roam, as well as a chapter select, so nothing is missable. There are two online trophies, though these simply require an internet connection.
Expect around 45-55 hours for the Platinum, depending on skills.
Survivor difficulty is available from the beginning, and you'll need to complete the story on this level for the Ultimate Survivor trophy. Aside from taking more damage, your health won't regenerate unless you use med kits. However, Survivor difficulty is not that hard for any average player, so if you wish to avoid a second playthrough, we recommend beginning on that.
Since there will be a free roam and chapter select after completing your playthrough, almost none of the trophies are missable. Yet, we recommend finding as many collectibles as you can, which will not only make the mopping-up after easier, but add to your XP during your Survivor playthrough.
The only trophy to watch out for is the Avid Shopper trophy, which requires you to purchase all items from the supply shack. It's possible to not have enough gold in the free roam stage to get this trophy. To be on the safe side, avoid purchasing the Crafting Tool and Enhancement Tool during your playthrough, and instead get them in the free roam.
Once you've completed your Survival difficulty plathrough, it's time to achieve 100% completion for the No Stone Unturned trophy. This includes, following clearing the main game, beating all the Challenge Tombs, raided all the Crypts, finished all the Challenges and Side Missions, and found all the collectibles. You'll unlock a number of trophies on your route to getting the No Stone Unturned trophy. Check out the collectibles location guides under our Links tab for help on this, if necessary.
After that, it's time to mop-up all the miscellaneous trophies you're still missing, with the exception of those related to the Score Attack and collecting cards. Be sure to check out the Rise of the Tomb Raider trophy guide links under our Links tab to see which of these miscellaneous trophies you still need, and their requirements. This may include a few trophies that are easier to collect on a lower-level of difficulty, such as killing five enemies in ten seconds with a rifle for the A Trusty Old Friend trophy, or three enemies with a single shotgun blast for the Triple Threat trophy.
Also, by now you should have enough credits to buy the 300 cards needed for both the Quite The Collector and These Belong In A Museum trophies. These two trophies are the only ones which are technically online, as they require an internet connection.
Lastly, are the Score Attack related trophies. These include basically replaying each chapter and completing them with a Gold Rating. There are eight trophies to unlock here on your way to getting the Gold Child trophy.
