Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics have announced Tomb Raider, a series reboot staring none other than Lara Croft herself. Game Informer has the world exclusive on what sounds like a very promising new adventure. Crystal Dynamics head Darrell Gallagher had the following to say about the new game.
Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider, we are exploring things that have never been done before in this game. This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.
We even have a basic story synopsis for you. During a terrible storm the boat Lara was traveling on gets severely damage, leaving her stranded on an island in the middle of nowhere. While on her own, she isn’t alone. Now it’s a race against time as she fights for her very survival.
It sounds epic, and if Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics copy what Uncharted has done we might all be in for a real treat. If they don’t…well…let’s just say they better! You can pick up the latest Game Informer on December 11th. I assume we’ll hear more about the game around then.
