New Tomb Raider Details

Details regarding the newly announced “Tomb Raider” game have surfaced ahead of the Game Informer cover story, which hits the streets this week. According to a source on Neogaf:

- 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.
- Crystal Dynamics 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.

wow, it will make TR1 - 3 deaths seem tame.

This all sounds pretty awesome so far. I've wanted to like her games but I never felt compelled enough to rush out and buy them.

I'm eagerly awaiting the gameplay vids for this one.

My favorite death in Tomb Raider 1 was when she jumped on the hand of Midas.

Tomb Raider is done, no need to try and keep reviving it.

hardly, the ps2 tomb raiders were overly criticised when they were actually really good(apart from Angel of Darkness). Even better than the originals on ps1. The platforming in them heavily inspired the Uncharted platforming sections.

what i"m saying is that tomb raier is past it's prime. they should have stop the franchise will it was on top instead of releasing mediocre titles after another.

Go on your own path don't try to copy, and stay with the hardcore exploration.

So Crystal Dynamics are chaning the story since it's a full reboot. I was getting confused when I heard this because I thought they were doing a prequel to there backstory of Lara from Legend and Underworld and since there was no mention of a Boat accident and just a plane crash I was getting really confused.

Basically there just rebooting Tomb Raider all together and starting from the very beginging
