Tomb Raider Jumps, Misses, Slips Into 2013

By John Walker on May 14th, 2012.

It's not quite within her reach. LIKE THIS GAME! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Obviously by now, everyone is applying what I assume is known as the Walker Principle, which states whatever first release date is given for a major game is to be ignored. So no one will be in the least surprised, let alone disappointed, to learn that Tomb Raider now won’t be with us until 2013.

Interview: Tomb Raider’s Karl Stewart

By Dan Grill on July 18th, 2011.

She's staring wistfully at her forgotten future.

Very much interested to find out more about the forthcoming Tomb Raider reboot, we sent intrepid, debonair reporter Dan Griliopoulos to interview the game’s global brand manager, Karl Stewart. He tells us about the motivation for reinventing Lara, the reasons for quicktime events, and Lara’s bookish ways.

No News: Tomb Raider: The New One

By Lewie Procter on July 15th, 2011.

Sorry good readers, I have no news about that new Tomb Raider game. I was hoping to share some useful information about the game, but all I have is a 12 minute making of behind the scenes of the CGI trailer. Wait, what? Read the rest of this entry »

E3 2011 First Look: Tomb Raider

By John Walker on June 13th, 2011.

There's so much sea around, you'd think she could have a bath.

The game I was most interested to see this year was Tomb Raider. Of everything on show, this was the one I was most intrigued by, based on Crystal Dynamics’ stellar record with the license so far, and the dark, gloomy tone that’s promised. Potential levels high. Which means I feel strange coming away from the demo a lot more concerned. Mostly by quick time events.

Tomb Raider E3 Trailer Is Dramatic, Gorgeous

By Quintin Smith on June 3rd, 2011.

Ryanair's latest cutbacks left Lara somewhat frazzled

Alright. Okay. I’m not sure there’s any conceivable way that Crystal Dynamics’ forthcoming reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise could be half as arresting and gorgeous as this trailer. Tell you what, though. I’m looking forward to seeing them try.

Shipwrecked: Tomb Raider Details Appearing

By John Walker on December 7th, 2010.

At a certain point it seems strange that she's still called Lara.

The first few scraps of information about the new Tomb Raider, officially revealed yesterday, are beginning to appear. NeoGAF have been plundering the unreleased Game Informer article by their own nefarious methods, and we learn a few interesting morsels. Like, for instance, Lara is to be 21 in the new game. Keys to the tomb. And deaths are to be brutal. Erk. It’s sounding like this is going to be part Tomb Raider, part Survivor, and I’m very intrigued. More bits and pieces below.

Backflip: Tomb Raider Reboot Announced

By John Walker on December 6th, 2010.

The staring eyes of Ms Croft.

One of my favourite things of recent years has been the standard of Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider games. While there’s no doubt there’s Lara fatigue, it’s inappropriate when they’re some of the finest action platform/shooters around. So it’s with a happy face that I greet the news that the next game from the team is a complete reboot of the series, simply called Tomb Raider. The announcement comes via the cover of the next Game Informer, along with a press release. Details below.

Lara Croft And The Trailer Of Trailerier

By John Walker on July 19th, 2010.

Watermarking your screenshots Eidos! Makes them look shit when we crop them!

Despite reading about it, and indeed writing about it, it’s really only watching the video below that has finally had me click over what this new Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light trailer game is really all about. Which is really nothing like Tomb Raider at all. But it looks an awful lot of Diablo-esque fun. The new trailer shows off intense combat, with minimal athletics. (The previous trailer was the other way around.). It’s a peculiar direction to have swung in, but a bright and interesting one. It’s supposed to be out sometime this Summer, but there’s still no specific date.

Lara From Above: Guardian Of Light Trailer

By John Walker on May 18th, 2010.

Lara has a friend!

Only yesterday Jim and I were asking for more information about Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light, and pa-dah! A new trailer has appeared. And crikey, it isn’t like the Tomb Raiders we’ve played before. Although we already knew it was an isometric action platformer, it’s hard to believe it until you see it running, which you can below.

L’il Lara: Tomb Raider Goes Retro

By Alec Meer on March 6th, 2010.

The next Tomb Raider game won’t be a Tomb Raider game. Rather, it’s called simply Lara Croft and The Guardian Of Light, it’s to be download only, and it looks to be an arcadesome, isometric action-platformer. Albeit one with lots of tomb-raiding. Wuh?

Underworld, Overground, Tomb Raider Demo is Free

By Kieron Gillen on October 31st, 2008.

'Octopus? No, but here's that Sick Squid I owe You.' 'WOT?''

Just about to run out the house to get to do my speech thing at Playful – clearly, I only actually wrote it this morning. Like, obv! – when I noticed the Tomb Raider: Underworld Demo has just gone live. I feel a bit sorry for it. In some ways, I share Walker’s sympathy for the game, thinking it a shame people are dismissing it through over familiarity. Admittedly, that’s not actually going to make it leap-frog spanglier, newer things to my “Actually playing it properly” pile. Anyway – get it from here and you’ll find some videos beneath the cut if you need a reminder of what Lara Croft looks like.
