Keeping Up With The Jones: Rise Of The Tomb Raider

The sequel to Tomb Raider: The Reboot has a title and a trailer. The title really is Rise Of The Tomb Raider, which I suppose is better than Raid Of The Tomb Riser, or High Rise Raider, in which Croft and some other posh sorts wage violent class warfare in a south London estate. In the actual sequel, Lara has been left so emotionally damaged by her experiences on the gusty island of the first game that she has to wear a hoodie. And see a therapist who reminds me of a non-specific Fox News anchor.

Multiple global locations are confirmed so this probably isn’t a point and click adventure about rebuilding Lara’s shattered mind. She’s going to jog around exotic locations shooting arrows into peoples’ brainstems.

I quite enjoyed the latest Tomb Raider but by the time everything on the screen started blowing up, I decided to stop playing. That may have made my memories of it fonder than they would have been if I’d struggled through to the end.

Jolly good co-operative Croft game Guardian of Light is also receiving a sequel in the shape of isometric four-player title Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. Leading archaeologists all agree that Osiris has some absolutely stonking tombs.
