Square Enix Confirms Tomb Raider Reboot
The new Tomb Raider will detail the origins of Lara Croft and her first adventure.
Square Enix announced in a press release that the rumors about an upcoming reboot to the Tomb Raider series are true. Crystal Dynamics will be developing the game, simply titled "Tomb Raider."
The reboot tells the story of a young, inexperienced Lara Croft after she washes up on the shore of a mysterious island after her ship is destroyed in a storm. According to Crystal Dynamics head Darrell Gallagher, the new game will be quite a bit different from the other.
"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."
Game Informer has the first image of the new Lara Croft. The newest issue of the magazine, which will go on sale on December 11, will have the full details concerning the reboot.
