Tomb Raider reboot – trailer

Once upon a time Tomb Raider was the byword for action/adventure in video games: Lara Croft was little less than a gaming icon, and not just because of all that daft nonsense about her being a sex symbol, rather because of the innovation that the original two games brought to console gaming. Subsequently it was drowned in end-of-the-pier cliché, and now the series seems like a relic when compared to the likes of Uncharted, or Prince of Persia.

However, all that is about to change with the Tomb Raider reboot, which is set to drag the series into the new decade with a look into how Miss Croft got started in this exploring game. As you can see form the trailer below, which is a dramatic piece of CGI, Croft is a young woman looking for her first adventure, when the boat she’s travelling on crashes. It’s from here that you begin in the game, fighting for your life rather than for treasure – personally we can’t wait.
