Rebooting a series as beloved as Lara Croft's Tomb Raider isn't a challenge that should be taken lightly. It's been 16 years since she first burst onto our screens in her now classic outfit and accompanied by her trusty guns, as she delved into deep and dark places in search of mysterious artifacts. The original Tomb Raider instantly became a cult classic and several sequels followed, as well as a few Hollywood films, which catapulted Lara into the kind of superstardom not usually reserved for characters in a video game.
But Lara's been on a bit of a hiatus lately, and we don't blame her. Surely there's only so much tomb raiding a girl can do? In light of this, Crystal Dynamics has decided to go back to the start of her adventuring career and show fans the experiences that helped forge such an iconic character, letting us discover more than we'd ever known about her life.
