As I expected, Square Enix decided to come up with a new Tomb Raider and its not just any other Tomb Raider. It will be a tale of Lara Croft’s origins. According to some previous rumours, this game will be set in a Japanese island, after Lara’s ship getting wrecked.
“After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was travelling on, a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach,” Square’s PR reads. “On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive.”
It continues: “Here begins the first adventure for a young and inexperienced Lara Croft in a story which charts the journey of an ordinary woman who finds out just how far she must go in order to stay alive.”
“Forget everything you knew about TOMB RAIDER,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio, Crystal Dynamics. “This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.”
This and many other Tomb Raider questions will be answeared in the next Game Informer issue on December 11th, and will feature a ten-page exclusive look at the game.
