Lara Croft Finds Her Origin Story

Tomb Raider is a series that has had its share of ups and downs (more downs than ups, in my opinion). Now it looks like Square Enix is hoping to do for Lara Croft what Christopher Nolan did for Bruce Wayne.

The upcoming issue of Game Informer is set to unveil the new Tomb Raider game which will, most likely, be a reboot. Developed by Crystal Dynamics, Tomb Raider follows a young and inexperienced Lara as she is fighting for survival after her ship crashes, leaving her stranded and alone.

Darrell Gallagher, head of Crystal Dynamics, had this to say about the forthcoming Tomb Raider game:

Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider. This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.

I haven’t given the Tomb Raider series more than a cursory glance in more than a decade, but this has me raising my eyebrow. Even without the revealed details, this photo alone would have caught my interest.

Check out the January issue of Game Informer for more juicy details on Lara’s latest — ahem, first — harrowing adventure.
