AN IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING GRAPHICS AND HAVING THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE – TOMB RAIDER: LEGENDS™ uses some of the most advanced rendering techniques available today for special effects and to achieve real-time performance for a great game playing experience. The game was largely developed and tested on NVIDIA GeForce FX, 6 Series and 7 Series graphics cards and the intended experience can be more fully realized on NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series graphics hardware. On a GeForce 6800 or better you will be able to turn on all of the NVIDIA special effect features at higher resolutions in the game.
SAVING AND LOADING THE GAME
Press ESC during play to display the Pause Menu; from here you can save your progress and rewards and load a saved game.
SAVING YOUR PROGRESS
Every game level has several checkpoints to pass. The word CHECKPOINT will appear in the bottom right of the screen to inform you when Lara has passed a checkpoint. This is a good place to save your progress. Press ESC to access the Pause Menu and select SAVE. From here you can choose to create a new save game or overwrite an existing save. You can also save between checkpoints, but Lara will always appear at the most recently saved checkpoint when a save is loaded again.
NOTE: The game’s Autosave feature automatically saves Lara’s progress to the last checkpoint. Starting a new game or loading a saved game automatically overwrites the Autosave.
When you replay a previously completed level, you will have the option to select SAVE REWARDS to save any collected rewards to your current game.
LOADING A SAVED GAME
You can load any saved game from the Main Menu or from the in-game Pause Menu. Select LOAD, then choose a save from one of the save slots. If data is present, details of the save will be shown at screen right. Press ENTER to load and resume that game. If you have a save that was created at the end of the game, you cannot load it during gameplay. Instead, you can revisit any part of the game via the REPLAY LEVEL option (page 5) in the Main Menu.
