How to save Tomb Raider: A proposal for where the series should go next

With Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Lara has now completed another trilogy, probably by falling through its roof and shooting it in the face. This would be the second set of three games from Crystal Dynamics (with help from other parts of Eidos), following on from the six titles created by Core (if you don't count the Game Boy ones). She's twelve main games old,…

How the Tomb Raider games have worn me down and broken me

I didn't much like the first in the most recent trilogy of Tomb Raider games, named with such originality and aplomb, Tomb Raider. (Square Enix's arrogance in reappropriating the original name of a series has never been a helpful move - see also Thief and Hitman, and I'd be willing to bet a fair wad of cash we'll be seeing "Final Fantasy" in the next…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider is fighting the apocalypse

Lara Croft will be sticking her toffee nose into the Mayans' business to prevent their apocalypse in Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Square Enix confirmed today as they started showing more of the game. Typical colonial invaders: thinking they know best, that they can and should solve everything. Hey, pal, that's not your apocalypse. Butt out. And don't think I didn't notice you slip that…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider coming in September

The next Lara Croft adventure will be Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and it's coming on September 14th, with no period of console exclusivity this time round. Square Enix have been bunging corks into their leaky reveal barge over the last couple of days, but now the teaser trailer is officially here. It contains all of your expected Lara action: she climbs a vertical cliff-face,…

Shadow of the Tomb Raider springs quite a few leaks

Update: Big surprise! It's finally now official. Now, keep this between us - quiet, alright? Just between you and me, I think there might be a new Tomb Raider game in the works. I also think that it might be called Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and that it might be released this September, and that it'll feature scenes a lot like the completely-unrelated-we-assure-you image…

Tomb Raider games are getting free remasters on Steam

With a new Tomb Raider film about to hit theaters, the world is ripe for some Lara Croft nostalgia. Here to fill that void we have some delightful remaster news: the first three Tomb Raider games are getting made-up really pretty, and they'll be free for gamers who own the originals. The reason why, however, might surprise you.

Would you believe it, they’re only making another Tomb Raider

I know! Another sequel to a ludicrously long-running and successful game franchise! What surprises this life holds. Unfortunately, "a new Tomb Raider" is quite literally all publisher Square Enix are saying right now, outside of promising we'll hear more soon. Still, it's nice to have forgone conclusions confirmed, innit?

Tomb Raider movie reveals Alicia Vikander’s Lara

The best moment in cinematic history is, of course, any time a character says the title of the movie they're in. This is the main reason I am excited for a Tomb Raider movie. At some point, surely someone will say in reverent tones "You're... the Tomb Raider". Myself, I'm hoping Lara will rebuff accusations of grave robbery with "Please, my father was the Grave…

Go Home, Lara, You’re Pointy: Tomb Raider DLC Out Now

A splurdge of DLC for Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] has just come out, which means you can now pop back to a decrepit Croft Manor, team up for co-op wilderness endurance, or battle the tough ‘Extreme Survivor’ difficulty mode. But most importantly, you can now control famous archaeologist and murderer Lara Croft the way she was meant to be played – as…

Ian Milham Is Tomb Raider Series’s New Game Director

Crystal Dynamics recently welcomed Ian Milham to their team. While no new Tomb Raider game is announced yet, he'll be assuming the role of game director for the series. Don't worry, he's got the experience to back it up. Milham has been in the business for twenty years, including time as an environment artist, the art director for the Dead Space games, and the creative…

Donate $1 To Charity And Get A Copy Of Tomb Raider

If you donate $1 or more to GameChanger between now and April 5th, you'll receive a digital copy of 2013's Tomb Raider reboot. That's while supplies last, at any rate, and there's no indication of how many supplies are available. The donations will contribute toward a very good cause. GameChanger will use funds to fulfill its "mission of improving the lives of children facing life-threatening…

The Perma-Death Endurance Mode DLC Is The Best Version Of Rise Of The Tomb Raider

I wanted to play Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] more than I realised I did. It's nice to not have yet another BrawnMan in the middle of my screen, sure, but for me it's the idea of vaguely puzzley, vaguely sandboxy adventures in a not-too-fantastical wilderness which appeals. Enthused by Adam's review, I picked up the PC version, but it wasn't long before…

Watch Rise Of The Tomb Raider’s No-Kill Video

Crystal Dynamics have released an alternate playthrough of Rise of the Tomb Raider's [official site] 'Advancing Storm' demo to showcase Lara's stealth possibilities. This is probably because even though they said stealth was entirely possible that bit got lost when the main message of the original video turned into "GUNS and then THROAT SLITTING and then EXPLODING BARRELS and then SHOTGUN YOU IN THE FACE".…

Are Platform Exclusives THE VERY DEVIL Or Kinda OK?

Once a week most weeks, team RPS gathers, eyes itself warily across the table then debates. Sometimes it's about SCANDAL, like slow-motion Batman or No Man's Sky hype, other times it's about perennials, like best levels ever or if Early Access means the end times. This week, we're discussing the pitfalls and merits of platform exclusives, in the wake of Everybody's Gone To The Rapture…

Falling Down: Rise Of The Tomb Raider

Just as Dark Knight Rises was mostly a tale of falling down in order to get back up again, Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] will require Lara Croft to hit the ground hard before she even considers doing any sort of upward movement. A new 13 minute video from Gamescom sees her Jonesing around, talking about her dad's research, stumbling, crashing, dodging bullets…

Well Duh: Rise Of The Tomb Raider Coming To PC

Remember how Square Enix were fannying about with Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site], playing tedious word games and falling silent to pretend that their neck-impaling sequel would be an Xbox exclusive when clearly it wouldn't? You'll never guess what: it is coming to PC after all! Well, the word games aren't quite over - it may or may not be exclusive to Windows…

This Isn’t A Post About Rise Of The Tomb Raider

Everything is so bloody stupid. In a world where major publishers like THQ can fold, and even something of the scale of Activision-Blizzard couldn't find a buyer other than itself, you'd imagine Square Enix wouldn't be doing absolutely everything in their power to reach as few customers as possible. But the company that recently suffered financial woes, and complained the first Tomb Raider didn't sell…

Raiding The Fan-Made Tombs of Lara Croft

It's hard to believe that Lara Croft's been cavorting around stealing priceless artefacts and killing endangered animals for nearly 20 years. But rather more amazing is that she's been doing it in fan-made levels since November 2000's Tomb Raider Chronicles PC release, which gave anyone with the inclination the tools – in the form of an official level editor – required to send her on…
