Poor Lara Croft. She hasn’t been this battered and bruised, since, never. A new take on the mythos, Square Enix’s and Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider is shaping up to be an amazing-looking title. I haven’t looked forward to a Tomb Raider game like this one since the second game.
A reboot of the series, the game features a 21 year old, freshly graduated Lara Croft as she attempts to survive the wilderness after an accident leaves her stranded on a island. Soon enough, she finds that she’s not alone on the island, and well, she’ll have to fight hard if she wants to make it out alive.
Check out this amazing trailer:
I’m really digging the whole Man Vs. Wild vibe the game has going on, and I love Lara’s newfound vunerability to her surroundings. She’s no longer the superhuman heroine of the old titles; instead, she’s just a normal, young girl doing her best to survive. I think that’s awesome.
Tomb Raider is scheduled to arrive on March 5, 2013, for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
