Rise of the Tomb Raider Announced for Holiday 2015

Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have announced a new Tomb Raider for Holiday 2015.

The new game, which will be called Rise of the Tomb Raider, will follow Lara Croft as she continues to adjust to her new mind set in the aftermath of the events of the first game. The game’s developers, not unexpectedly, are confident that the next game will please fans even more than the first.

“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix. “Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider.”

Also returning to Tomb Raider will be actress Camilla Luddington who served as her voice and motion capture actor in the first game, as well as author Rhianna Pratchet who headed up the writing of the first game. A new trailer was also unveiled alongside the announcement.

Two thoughts: first, i think its kinda silly to announce a game for *next* Christmas. It makes it seem like the pipeline is pretty dry. Also, I’m shocked to discover that someone else in the world is named Rhianna.

“our high octane action moments will be even more epic”

Then I’m not interested in thsi game. All the action and explosions in the first game made me sick, all I wanted was to run around, explore, and solve puzzles.

Who thought “Rise of the Tomb Raider” was a good name? It sounds like it could pass for a completely different game. Also, I felt the “writing” in tomb raider was very much over the top. Hundreds of baddies VS 1 women who’s fallen from planes, been lit of fire, and who knows what else. There is a a point where the game stops being believable despite how “real” it looks and feels.
