SAVING AND LOADING THE GAME
Press Start 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 Start to access the Pause Menu and select SAVE; from here you can choose to create a new save 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 always saves the last checkpoint of your current game, even if you power down. Starting a new game or loading a previously saved game automatically overwrites your Autosave.
LOADING A SAVED GAME
You can load any saved game on the Xbox 360 from the Main Menu or from the in-game Pause Menu. Select LOAD, then choose a save. If data is present, details of the save will be shown. Press A to load and resume that game.
Throughout Lara’s archeological adventure, various new artifacts and relics become available. Collecting rewards opens up bonus content and extra features such as outfits (viewable in Croft Manor), pistol upgrades, concept art and much more. Make sure Lara scours the environment thoroughly. Each mission has a number of different types of collectables:
■ BRONZE REWARDS – Informational content.
■ SILVER REWARDS – Game content.
■ GOLD REWARDS – Special game rewards.
NOTE: The most valuable unlockables are only obtained by collecting a combination of all three reward types. When each level is complete, you will be notified about which type of reward(s) you have managed to unlock. Select EXTRAS from the Main Menu to view and select your rewards.
TIP: Select REPLAY LEVEL from the Main Menu to replay completed missions and pick up missed rewards.
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.
