Tomb Raider Reborn with young lara Croft finding her feet

After months of speculation the new Lara Croft has arrived via Game Informer. “Tomb Raider Reborn” will see our heroine a lot younger and surviving by her wits. In all these years I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Lara Croft bleeding, despite all those leaps into craggy rocks and avoiding blades and arrows. Young Lara Croft it would seem is just learning and has a few scrapes along the way. Oh and no pistols, instead a crossbow? Interesting.

Here’s the official blurb:

Tomb Raider Reborn

‘After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was travelling on,a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach. On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive.’

Here begins the first adventure for a young and inexperienced Lara Croft in a story which charts the journey of an ordinary woman who finds out just how far she must go in order to stay alive.

“Forget everything you know about TOMB RAIDER, we are exploring things that have never been done before in this game,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio, Crystal Dynamics. “This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.”

    1. Any more information on the release date for the new Tomb Raider game Tomb Raider Evolution otr whatever its called? I see the new Tomb Raider movie is also getting a young Lara Croft, bit boring eh? I want to see a 40 year old Lara Croft, a woman of the world, not some teenage brat trying to be a hero. Imagine how good it would be with a mature woman who has travelled the world, seen things we could only dream of? I think Eidos or Crystal Dynamics or whoever need to stop thinking gamers are all 12. Gamers are getting older, so some of our gaming heroes should age with us. A mature age lara croft would be the way to go, but instead we see Tomb Raider going backwards.

    2. I was aualtlcy going to do a video on this myself about lead female characters not being memorable this generation and? I did do a video about it long ago in the past. I do agree that male developers either go to one of two extremes when making female characters; One side of the spectrum is the sexy harlot that uses nothing but sex appeal to get what she wants and on the opposite side is the whiny, self centered, attention seeking brat type. I do think there needs to be a new female icon!

  1. When does the new Tomb Raider game come out? Is it the end of 2011? I want to see what the new young Lara Croft can do, even though I think it’s lame she’s young. Release date of the new Tomb Raider game please girly!

  2. Looking forward to the new younger lara croft, not because she is younger, but because of the backstory it will hopefully fill in. I think Crystal Dynamics should seriously consider flipping the Lara Croft franchise on its head and if this new younger lara croft sells well, they should make the next tomb raider game feature a very mature croft, in the sense that the indiana jones films do. Say a lara croft around 50 years old woh works as a professor of archaeology in some ivy league university. I think that would be amazing.

  3. The new younger Lara Croft looks great in the trailer for the new game, it is strange though it is set in modern times, I thought being sticklers for detail it would have actually been her younger, like in the 80’s or whatever.

  4. What date is the new Tomb Raider game released in australia? I still not sure about the kid lara, but the trailer got me sucked in.
