Tomb Raider announced and new Lara shown.


Some details.


Details taken from Game informer apparently...





- Lara is 21 in this game

- It's not only a reboot of the franchise but a reboot of the entire brand. As a result there will be no "real" Lara model this time.

- They're doing performance capturing with this game

- There are brutal deaths in the game this time. One is described as a deranged man stabbing Lara in the chest and then closing her eyes after she's dead. Another includes a boulder falling on her leg to trap her before another falls and crushes her head.

- CD won't talk specifics on weapons but concept art shows a bow, shotgun and pistol

- The lock on targeting system is gone and it now has a free aim system. CD says that it can compete with any of their competitors.

- "I think that the major difference between this game and the old is the concept of smoke and mirrors," begins Darrell Gallagher, the studio head at Crystal Dynamics. "There was an illusion of freedom because of streaming and loading that would pop you out in a different location, but this is absolutely real. You can literally go any direction that you see and carve your own way to the finish line instead of being guide."

- "It was important in the game to not only deliver the character arc of Lara Croft emotionally, but to deliver it in gameplay as well so the player gets to grow into a hardened survivor," says experienced director Noah Hughes. As the game unfolds, Lara will scavenge new tools and gear that augment her abilities. Lara's athletic prowess will also evolve. Some areas begin inaccessible due to physical limitations or scarce supplies. With the right skills and gear, however, the island is Lara's for the taking.

- There are base camps in the game. Here you can combine items to create something new and access a skill system to upgrade Lara's abilities. You'll also be able to use base camps to fast travel to different locations to minimize backtracking.

- You'll need to gather food and water in order to survive

- There are humans in the game, including some of the crew members from the shipwreck off the coast of the island.

I literaly could not be more excited about this. A truly open-world, exploration-based Tomb Raider with elements of survival? Yes please!

It does look rather yummy, it's by the Eternal Darkness chaps now too, God, I'd love a sequel to that.

So how many reboots and attempts to "get it right" is this now? ^^;

New Lara design looks bad-ass, though.

Open world, non-horror survival would be ace!

Another includes a boulder falling on her leg to trap her before another falls and crushes her head.


Noooo! Pigggyyy ;_;

Which is funny, because to me she looks ten times sexier in the new renders than she ever used to.

Don't know what everyone is so excited about.

It feels like they "reboot" Lara every year.


"OMG, darker stronger Lara, back to her roots, etc. etc." - yeah, same old same old.

I don't really care about Lara Croft; never played a Tomb Raider game in fact, but the prospect of a open world exploration adventure game sounds very good to me. :)

I was about to recommend that you try Tomb Raider Anniversary or Tomb Raider Legends but then I realised neither came out on the PS3 :-( Both absolutely fantastic games though.
