New Tomb Raider Officially Official

Remember how novel it was that Lara could get dirt on her ass in Underworld? OK, so that image there is the full wraparound cover for the next issue of Game Informer (click for a larger version), which should be arriving in your mailboxes this week. It also serves as the first official announcement that a new Tomb Raider game is in the works. And it is, simply, called Tomb Raider. Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio, Crystal Dynamics:

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.

And, finally, here’s the setup, in a nutshell: “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.”

There you go. That seems to jive nicely with what we’ve heard about the game before. Also, the new official site for the game says it will be out on PC, PS3 and 360 whenever it comes out.

If you’re pumped — I kinda am, honestly — be sure to grab yourself a Game Informer on Thursday.

are you F*@KING serious!? are you not joking on the name of the game. Wow could you get more retarded? I mean sheesh not to confuse anyone about the title of the games here I mean someone asks you have you played tomb raider and you go ya, then they start talking about the new one and you go what!? that wasn’t in tomb raider!! then you realize that the dumbass gaming company decided to name a game the same name. That’s like naming a movie the same name and Hollywood is retarded for it. These are not movies these are games don’t name the game the same freaking thing cause your lazy to name your game something new. I mean they could have named it anything but tomb raider. try this title…

Tomb Raider: Lara Craft is Back!!<–that would be a bad name but still be better than calling it the same dumb name as the first game makes no sense. YOUR confusing people like me that know naming the game the same name makes you an Idiot. Change you freaking title you morons!!
