In the history of origin stories, Tomb Raider is one that has yet to be told. Being that Lara Croft is one of the most recognizable and highly revered characters in the world of gaming, it was with great care and excitement that Square Enix unveiled the next chapter in the life of Ms. Croft, which incidentally will also be the first. How did she grow into such an indomitable figure? What events transpired, be they traumatic or revolutionary, to form her character? What was the impetus that ignited her desire for discovery? These are the questions that will be answered in Crystal Dynamics' re-imagining of the Tomb Raider franchise, and in that, the character of Lara Croft as we know her.
