Tomb Raider – Square Enix
“A Survivor Is Born – Armed with only the raw instincts and physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, TOMB RAIDER delivers an intense and gritty story into the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.”
This Origin Story comes to us in 2013 but I can honestly say that I’m eagerly awaiting the chance to be able to own this title. As a big Tomb Raider fan, I grew up playing the games but found them lackluster after the 3rd title with little to no desire to continue playing the franchise. The two movies that came out didn’t help the franchise in my opinion as the movies themselves were lackluster. However, upon viewing not only the trailer for this new game but sitting through a gameplay session, I think that this time Lara Croft will make a great comeback and not just reignite old fans’ hearts but also attract a few new fans along the way.
The gameplay we experienced started the story off with how Lara came to be on an island. It shows a more vulnerable, yet crafty, 21-year-old prior to her career as an Archaeologist. The game looks like a great mix of graphics and story and when it comes out next year, we’ll get to experience this new gritty Lara Croft on Xbox, PS, OSX and Windows.
Tomb Raider is set to be released March 5th, 2013 and the first DLC will be exclusive to Xbox 360.
