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…

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.
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.

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.
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.
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…
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 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?
