Square announce 'Tomb Raider' reboot, Crystal go with "origins story"

That new Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics? Well it's called 'Tomb Raider' and yes there's a boat, a beach and a stranded Lady Croft for us.

We get a "young and inexperienced" Lara whose only goal is to survive. Crystal say "forget everything" we know of Tomb Raider, this is her "origins story".

.............Dinosaurs ? will there be any ? :)

Btw, the pic of her sure looks nice.

Lara Croft franchise is a dinosaur alright, hottest goddamn dinosaur I've ever seen though. I love the games but I wasn't too fond of the controls.

This game sounds like a good refresh for the franchise.

AAACE54950d ago

I wonder if they finally read my letter telling them to quit making her look like a f'in alien...

Anyway, I like the Adrianna Lima look of this new one! Hope they bring back the traditional all fours crawl Lara used to have in the older games.

TOO PAWNED4950d ago

Old Lara looked like plastic Barbie doll = UGLY!
New one seems like someone performed bad plastic surgery on her.
Never found Lara to be hot. I think girls in Uncharted 2 (can't remember their names) are very hot in different ways but none of them is like forced over the top fake plastic beauty.
Anyways i hope this new Tomb Raider is something like those leaked concept arts showed us it could be. Had a bit of horror theme

Uhh.. she looks like a dude. They could have placed that picture on a new Final Fantasy cover and labeled it as a the male main character named Biff. Look at the jaw lines, eye brows, cheek bones, etc. That's definitely a dude.

No amount of disagreeing will change my viewpoint that some of y'all are looking at a dude and finding him hot.

young juice4950d ago

this is exactly what square should do. i was just talking about this the other day.

hope square doesnt f*ck it up, like they have donewith alot of other potential games this gen.

hay4950d ago (Edited 4950d ago )

Actually I love how she looks in this art. If she looks like dude, I'd bang dude with this face. Any dudes looking like that here? C'mere! Who's your daddy!

Also, this may be first Tomb Raider game I may actually like if it's nothing like any of the previous games.

Redempteur4950d ago


Actually i think that reboot are good in this case when square in involved just enough that everything doesn't turn into omething nobody wants.

Case in point with deus ex.. Just the involvement needed .

AAACE54950d ago

@Teflon Don 81... If you think that looks like a dude, you must be into tranny's!

The old Lara looked more like a dude to me!

Kurt Russell4949d ago

I'm stuill down with this milf... enjoyed this franchise from the start even its less rated counterparts.

antz11044949d ago

Wasn't it a plane crash that made her all survival badass, not a shipwreck?

ChineseDemocracy4949d ago

Reminds me of Hilary Swank.

Hot or not?

OneSneakyMofo4949d ago

I think Lara Croft needs to be named Link Croft.

Looking Lara yet!!


GoodSpeed4949d ago (Edited 4949d ago )

This might be too throwback for some of you, but that pic makes her look like Atreyu from the Never-ending Story. Anybody else see it besides myself?


xAlmostPro4950d ago

i hope she can still do handstands :)

Kurisu4949d ago

I'm wondering if she will even be able to crawl! She didn't learn to do it until Tomb Raider 3 xD

poopface14950d ago

Batman movies have been the only good ones.

Gambit074949d ago

Actually theses days it's more of a rebooting a reboot.

lightningsax4949d ago (Edited 4949d ago )

Interesting idea! So long as it's fun, I don't have a problem with it.

However, I really don't like how they just Rocky Balboa'd the title of the game. Now you've got Tomb Raider on PS1 and Tomb Raider on the newer systems. So what will we actually call it five years from now? Tomb Raider 2011? Heck, at least Nolan's crew had the decency to name their first reboot title "Batman Begins" and not just "Batman." Could you imagine calling something "Batman 2005" when discussing the entire franchise? Game catalogers, revolt!

n to the b4949d ago

hate it when remakes/boots use the same title as an original, movies or games. almost as bad as us americans having the audacity to call it 'football' when football (a.k.a. 'soccer') already existed!!

...I said ALMOST...

I found one iconic image that can set this gen apart from others:


UnbiasedTroll4949d ago

Uncharted 2 stole stole Tomb Raiders light. I mean if they did what Uncharted 2 did that would be one heck of a Tomb Raider game.

ExplosionSauce4949d ago

Not really. I enjoy both series because they're vastly different to me.

XI_-Minty-_IX4949d ago

lol UnbiasedTroll my ass. Looking at your comment history, you only troll PS3 articles. This one needs his bubs taken away. >:-)

Mizz_mai4949d ago (Edited 4949d ago )

it's gonna be sh*t TR's been awful for year's now,i predict female multi-plat version of uncharted 2,whilst PS3 owners will be playing uncharted 3...gd night everybody :)

ThanatosDMC4949d ago

"We get a "young and inexperienced" Lara whose only goal is to survive."

Wait are we just gonna play Lara on the streets doing some alley work? Wasn't she rich to begin with because of her dad? Anyway, they need to dethrone Uncharted to make this game big but this is SquareEnix after all so i doubt it.
