Hello again, Groupies!
I come to you all with a very important message today. As you all know of the "timed-exclusivity" deal of Rise of the Tomb Raider being only on the XboxOne, made in direct partnership from Crystal Dynamics with Microsoft, hit stores today. Many of us loyal, decades-long fans will not be able to play Rise of the Tomb Raider for quite some time, most of us, a year, the smaller majority that are PC will be waiting until Spring 2016. During this time, we are sure many of you will want to do artwork based on the game but as the entire game will not be able to be enjoyed from all the fans possible and only a small amount will get to play it, we are going to perform something important for both sides of the coin in this bad situation.
Artwork that contains "spoiler-ish" content within it (this includes but is not limited to, characters that were not revealed in trailers that pop up in the game. Locations that were not revealed in trailers that Lara ends up going to in the game. Puzzles, major plot situations, etc.) will not
be going into the group's gallery. However
, artwork that does contain artwork with "spoiler-ish" content, can be submitted to a special folder in our favorites.
It will be a drop-down, sub folder for those who wish to view other folders in our Favorites Collection without getting even a glimpse of the artwork and seeing that particular content. The rules of the group's submissions still apply
to these submissions. If you ever are unsure of our rules, they are on our front page beneath the group's greeting, or read here
This method will make sure artwork can be viewed without most members that cannot play the game, getting spoiled as soon as they view their inbox. Should you wish to spoil yourself and view the artwork, you can visit the the folder anytime you want. We are taking the submissions with spoilers very seriously
and should you try and submit artwork into the group that has spoilers from RoTR within it, it will be immediately declined and a notification of your violation will be sent to you. As Crystal Dynamics and Microsoft have disrespected almost the entire fanbase with this whole ordeal, it falls on us to be the good guys and do the right thing; Be respectful, don't be rude about this new rule (we didn't make the deal, that's all SE, CD and M$'s fault) and be kind to one another, from one artist to the other.
to go to the folder.
If you have any questions, leave a comment on this journal and we'll do our best to answer it! Cheers!
