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.

Gasping: Tomb Raider Footage

By Alec Meer on June 7th, 2011.

'Press X now to avoid a bruised arse'

In case you missed it – as part of my oh-so-insightful and not at all chaotic liveblog of the heavily staged, saccharine pantomime that was yesterday’s Microsoft pre-E3 conference – here’s a fair-sized chunk of proper in-game footage of the latest Tomb Raider reboot. We’ve only seen screenshots and pre-rendered stuff so far, right? Well, here’s how nu-Lara plays.

Warning: shirt.

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.

By John Walker on January 11th, 2011.

You can even tweet about them!

Yes! You heard right. These are the only images from the forthcoming Tomb Raider reboot to be posted here on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, today. Never before seen in full on our website, you won’t see us posting these images anywhere else. If we do, we’ll sue us.

Tomb Raider Screens Locked In A Cupboard

By John Walker on January 5th, 2011.

I wonder what Tomb Raider looks like.

Update: The cropped Tomb Raider images illustrating this article – which was essentially a long-winded link to Game Informer’s site – have been removed. This is because Game Informer – after threatening our readers on Twitter – sent us a legal threat of our very own. A slightly ironic reaction bearing in mind the content of the original post, which is below.

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.

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?
