Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider Raiding Tombs in March 2013
Written By
View author's profile

We're rather excited about Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot, and this latest trailer shows more of the action-packed gameplay that'll place Lara in constant peril, as she fights for survival on a hostile island inhabited by savage creatures and equally savage people.

In the new vid, you'll get to see Lara skewering deer, climbing through wreckage, fighting human antagonists and you'll even get to see why Ms. Croft hates wolves so much. It looks as though searching for lost treasures and artifacts will be the least of her worries.

Check out the marvellous new E3 trailer to see Lara in action, then mark March 5th, 2013 in your diary. That'll be release date for Tomb Raider, announced in the video. Webb will be donning the khaki hotpants for some Tomb Raider at E3.

Wow! This looks so good. Really, really pumped for this. Cannot believe it's so long before it comes out. Looks like the wait is going to be worth it though.

You call this Tomb Raider?
Better call it Resident Raider.I still wonder why rebooting it to survival horror,since the last 3 games made from Crystal Dynamics were successful.
Changes are huge and if you cant understand it,its like taking Halo and rebooting it to a platform game.
Im also ready for the thumbs down.

Wonder who the voice-actor is because she actually sounded more Aussie than british to me. Also it seems they showed most of the story in the trailer so whats left to find out?

this is just horrible. seriously why is most games turning from the routes instead some generic action..... Seriously some of us want to play classic Lara. This looks nothing like her, the cutscenes are too serious. Shes always supposed to be a bit of a flirt even when you was young, this completly ignores everything lara croft was about, she barely even does any 'tomb raiding' sheesh.

(After Bioshock) This game makes me the saddest for being pushed to next year.


1) Its, ROOTS not, ROUTES.

2) What would be the point of a reboot if the character/game looked, acted, & played exactly as the original?

3) She, "hates tombs."

New Lara Croft will be great like Original Lara Croft. But as long as new Tomb Raider turn out to be great. But I am believe will be great.

Cutscene look so fantastic and I eat my sweet popcorns to watch this awesome 3 mins and 25 secs hehehehe

1) Nobody likes grammer nazi

2) Whats the point in changing a game if it is has nothing to do with the games? did we learn nothing from games like resident evil?

3) She loves tomb raiding so go play the originals when she was young instead of this uncharted clone.

This trailer looks ridiculously good. Kinda forgot about the title but now, oh man. Kinda looks like an open world-ish mix between Uncharted with some Assassin's Creed elements.

I've played all of about 2 minutes of Tomb Raider games before as I wasn't fussed on them, but this trailer has grabbed my attention! Thinking of picking this up now. :)

I can't wait for March 13th now. I've been wanting to play this game ever since they announced it. I've had it reserved since the day that GameStop started taking reservations on it.

@15 Because after the first 2 games in the series, the rest were pretty bad. That is why you reboot a franchise and change the game around. There's a reason most Tomb Raider games are ignored when they are released. This however has the potential to actually be a AAA title. Much to my surprise, it actually looks good.

You can call it an Uncharted clone all you want, but Uncharted's sales put the Tomb Raider series to shame. There's a reason for that. They're good. Hopefully, this game won't disappoint.

Incredible trailer, but I think this game has looked amazing since its debut.

I can't wait for it to come out, and I look forward to an interesting special edition.

This looks like it would be a better animated movie rather than a video game. Why are they doing a reboot? Oh right, probably because they've run out of ideas for a new IP :/

Calling this a prequel screams franchise reboot. Looks good for the series, because even though I have played all the previous titles the controls where always clunky. This could be exactly what Tomb Raider needs.

Surprised that they spoiled so much of the storyline in that trailer given that the game is still 9 months away.

Personally I think its funny that so many people who "hate Tomb Raider" love the look of this game, and then wonder why alot of people that do like Tomb Raider are complaining about it.
Imagine if Square Enix released a trailer for a new First Person Shooter and called it "Final Fantasy" - you're saying you wouldn't be surprised to see some Call of Duty fans commenting with "I normally hate Final Fantasy but this game looks amazing" and at the same time Final Fantasy fans saying "WTF is this?"

This game has virtually no resemblance to previous Tomb Raiders at all, aside from the fact the main character is named Lara Croft. To me it feels like Square Enix were too scared to release this title as its own IP so they renamed the character Lara Croft and called it Tomb Raider.
I don't see how this can "reboot" the series as it looks to be a one off - unless of course this really is Tomb Raider's new direction and all of Lara's future explorations are going to be just as tragic requiring her to spend most of her time "surviving" rather than actually exploring, treasure hunting or (dare I say it) Tomb Raiding.
