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