Multiple Tomb Raider collectibles have been hidden in the video game developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Tomb Raider represents the 2013 installment in the well-known Tomb Raider franchise, thus making it the tenth video game in the main series.
The game is a reboot of the series, where the main character is the 21-year-old Lara Croft. The plot revolves around Lara, explaining how she turned into a survivor.
The story begins with a ship named Endurance, where Lara and the crew are searching for trails of an ancient Japanese Empress.
However, the ship is caught in a storm and the crew shipwrecks on a mysterious island in the Dragons Triangle, east of Japan.
Lara must use her skills and instincts to defeat the dangers of the island; therefore, becoming a survivor.
Tomb Raider Collectibles Guide
Through them, Lara will learn the history of the Yamatai Island and uncover many secrets, but the most important aspect is that every Tomb Raider collectible awards experience points.
Because of this, Lara must explore the island in order to accumulate experience points that can be used to unlock new skills, which are mandatory for her survival.
It is recommended for players to use the Survival Instinct as much as possible to uncover puzzle elements and rewards. The Tomb Raider collectibles are hidden in many places (inside houses and ruins, in the grass, behind waterfalls, on top of high cliffs) and there are various ways to get them.
An obvious choice is to search for each collectible in every area of the video game, but this method can be time consuming for most players.
The easiest way to find all Tomb Raider collectibles is to use a complete collectables guide because it reveals their exact locations.
However, theres a third choice, one that is actually included in the game. Most areas feature a series of hidden Treasure Maps, and their purpose is to show players hints on the in-game map.
But not all Treasure Maps are easy to find, because some of them are rewards received for raiding the Ancient Yamatai Tombs. The island is divided in several regions, but there are Camps scattered around.
When Lara finds a camp, it will be automatically added to a fast travel system, which is used to move from one region to another.
The Camps are very important, because not all areas can be explored from the beginning. Sometimes, Lara must acquire new equipment and tools, then go back to previously visited areas, thus making the Fast Travel Camps very useful.
Once enough Tomb Raider collectibles have been acquired, players will unlock various achievements/trophies.
