TOMB RAIDER

[ Edited ]
276 Replies 3,845 Views edited 04-10-2012

I have been a huge Tomb Raider fan since the original on PS1 back in 1996.  Today the new game, an origins reboot, has been been revealed officially for the first time via GameInformer.  They have dropped the sub-title & numbers for it.  What a great looking render :)

 

The magazine with the in-depth Tomb Raider feature will be out soon.

Snippet:


Forget what you know about Lara Croft. As of today, all that is changing.  In our world-exclusive cover story, we uncover a brand-new Lara Croft. Rebooting the Tomb Raider franchise through an origin story wasn’t so much a choice as an act of necessity, according to Crystal Dynamics. Drastic measures were needed. To build an entirely fresh Lara – a culturally relevant hero worth of the attention that once came so effortlessly – they must break her first. In this new adventure – simply titled Tomb Raider – a younger and inexperienced Lara Croft must endure both physical and emotional trauma to survive.

Absolutely loving the new look of Lara Croft! The artwork is simply stunning.

I haven't really been interested in any of the recent games, but this definately has got my attention.

I thought there was something missing from this thread. The E3 2011: Tomb Raider Gameplay Demo :o

Looks really good to me from what we've seen so far :) I just hope Crystal Dynamics put a bit more time into this game as it does look much higher quality then the last few games, which where let down slightly by a few bugs, namely the camera.
