Lara Croft to See Yet Another Reboot…

Square Enix News Adventure

I don’t think any character has re-invented themselves more than Lara Croft. It seems like we see a new version of the heroine every few years, but honestly, I don’t mind this too much as the Tomb Raider series has always been enjoyable for me for the most part through the years and I feel that Croft’s last console outing in Underworld was a great game all around so any news of a new Tomb Raider is spectacular news.

The game is looking like a pure prequel all the way through and carries the title of a simply put “Tomb Raider”. Crystal Dynamics, who are of course working on the game along with Square Enix, released this bit of information on the story that will follow:

‘After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was travelling on,
a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach.
On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive.’

“Forget everything you know about TOMB RAIDER, we are exploring things that have never been done before in this game,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio, Crystal Dynamics. “This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.”

Other than that little bit of information and the leaked GI cover you can see above, there isn’t much known on “Tomb Raider” at the moment but I expect more information and a date to rise soon. You can check out the new official site at for even more information.

  • Well I’ll let u know when it arrives in the mail. GI tend to do concept art though now/ so it may not even be a very good likeness; I hate the hair in the picture. All this news is old though was announced 2 years ago, and the new logo on the site…just reminds me of Just Cause.
    Deus Ex looks excellent though so I have high hopes for Tombraider

    • The news might be old but this press released was sent out to the press in the early hours of today.

      If might of been discussed openly elsewhere and all over the internet but this is the official details for everyone to enjoy.

  • looks pretty cool, although I have no idea how the story actually fits together, or if it even does. Guardian of Light was great though, So I have high hopes. fingers crossed

    • Might put something in the forums. From previous games, Lara was mentored by, her mentor Von Croy or something in the jungle, you can play as young(er) Lara in TR4 also in 7. This is a real reboot that may rewrite everything that comes after. Guardian of light was an arcade spin off, play Underworld it’s great!
