Tomb Raider Reboot
A New, Younger Lara Croft
A new Tomb Raider game is scheduled to be released this December 2011. This one focuses on a new, different kind of origins story. Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider: Legend) discovered that a new, drastic reboot was necessary for Lara Croft. They broke her down to rebuild her, deciding what was necessary to maintain her distinctness and what wasn't.
The result is a young, inexperienced Lara Croft that is stranded on an island on her first expedition. She must explore the island, scavenge new gear, combining new items and learning and developing new skills. She won't be quite the same Lara we were used to. She will start with being a little bit vulnerable and not really in charge. As the game progresses Lara will be tested both physically and emotionally and her inner strength will shine through as she is transformed into a survivor.
"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." Square Enix statement in revealing the game, called simply Tomb Raider.
A 21 year old Lara Croft joins the crew of the Endurance, a salvage ship captained by Conrad Roth as it looks for treasure off the Japanese coast. The ship wrecks, leaving Lara to find a way to survive.
I personally love the new look. She remains recognizable as Lara but in a more realistic way. The picture down below gives great insight into her character. Lara's expression is dangerous in a way someone who has been through a traumatizing experience might have. But the set of her mouth still speaks of some vulnerability. Her clothes will evolve as the game progresses becoming more torn and dirty.
The new Tomb Raider will be out in time for Christmas this year and will appear on both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 as well as the PC.
