NC Gamer updated his video with the following clarification:
I made a very silly and inaccurate assumption on the games resolution based on Developer interviews. I always check my information but i rushed this article up from outside the UK with that assumption. It was incorrect and the game developer has quite rightly corrected me on being an idiot. I have amended the video with that piece out and link here the resolution confirmation from Brian Horton
I apologize for the confusion caused and can assure you I will learn from this foolish mistake and only stick to facts I can confirm or prove as I have done and should always do.
With Lara now set up as the full on Female Indiana Jones we know her to be. Her latest "exclusive" game is all set to go harder and faster and build upon the impressive 2013 Reboot.
With only a few months until release learn about the new gameplay mechanics, visual improvements and more that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix are bringing to the XboxOne (& a 360 version) in 2015.
Rise of the Tomb Raider E3 demo was running on the Xbox One at 1080p
Tomb Raider has long been a franchise with a big focus on exploration and puzzle solving, as well as providing some platforming thrills and shooting sequences. 2013's Tomb Raider, focused more in creating a strong origin story for Lara Croft, and helping players of a new generation identify with the heroine in a more subtle way, by introducing the tomb element in a more linear but still effective and appealing form.
This time around she is more prepared and better equipped, to face bigger challenges and explore larger tombs with much more puzzle solving and platforming action. The environment of Siberia will offer more extreme conditions for Lara to adapt to, and her new equipment will come in great use when facing avalanches and climbing dangerous icy peaks.
Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics demonstrated the first gameplay of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The game looks absolutely stunning, especially with the impressive Siberia setting's weather and environmental effects taking center stage.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is scheduled to arrive in Winter 2015 exclusively on Xbox platforms.
