    Hmmm, they say steam and windows 10. Does this mean it will be available on the windows 10 app store? or that its DX12 only (which seems strange and unlikely)

    If it's only coming on Windows 10, it's very likely it will be DX12.

    Crystal Dynamics made great job on Tomb Raider 2013. I would be more surprised if they actually released bad game.
    Having 100% completion of this game, really worth every $ on pre-order, not like so many other who fail.

    Don't get why this needs to be a Windows 10 only game, it doesn't even look like it would benefit much from DX12 anyway - it's not like there's loads of interactive and complex objects happening on the screen at once, which is what DX12 is mostly about as far as I know! Looks like this title could be just as good on DX11 given the video, and hence should be available for Win 7/8. Win 10 only is for me just a ploy to make people change to Windows 10, even if this title is DX 12 (because doesn't look like this title would benefit from DX12 anyway).

    "Hairworks"? Is that some new PhysX extension?

    Supposedly everything will benefit from DX12 simply for increased sustained framerate on a wider variety of hardware.

    After 10 years of people bitching about consoles holding back pc, I hope to god people aren't going to complain about windows 10 exclusivity ( if it is true ).

    Games were held back by 32 bit for too long with complaining technological stragglers with their laptops...if in order to capitalise on the new API it needs to be win 10 only then so be it, the game will be better for it.

    If people don't want to be 'forced' to buy win 10...don't, just skip the game or get it for $10 in 2 years time when you upgrade, it's not the end of the world.

    EDIT:

    P.S, I am aware that win 10 has nothing to do with 32 bit, I was just using it as an example of tech held back for too long by reluctance to accept that to move on you need to cut away the old requirements.

    If you've got a weak CPU, otherwise it's not a big deal, and this E3 Vid is showing that Tomb Raider is not a particularly complex title in terms of CPU power required in my observation. I think this should be in DX11 too, 'wrong' to supply it just in DX12 Win10 as it's not technically required by the demands of the game - just not a complex game from a CPU perspective it seems.

    I doubt this will be Windows 10 only they'd lose too much money but either way I'll be upgrading this is just another incentive.

    The snow deformation in the videos looked terrible whatever solution they are using is very laggy and inaccurate, recent titles I can think of, Arkham Origins and AC3 did a much better job.
