Tomb Raider is to receive a new comic book next year that will pave the way for the next game in the series following Crystal Dynamic's successful reboot released earlier this year. According to seasoned comic book writer Gail Simone, the new 2014 comic will retain the tone of the first game and lead directly into the sequel.
"I chose to do this series solely because I loved the game so much, so we're definitely keeping the tone of the game," Simone told Kotaku. "I've always loved the classic, cool Lara Croft, but this feels like her origin story, like we're seeing her before she becomes the icon, and it's very compelling to me. The storytelling in the game hooked me instantly.
"The biggest difference is, the game told a claustrophobic story in an isolated setting. We are going globetrotting," she added. "We start just a few weeks after the end of the game, and this is all in continuity, it will be Tomb Raider canon, and lead DIRECTLY into the sequel. This is what got me excited; we get to be part of Lara Croft history."
The new Tomb Raider comic is set to be published by Dark Horse and released on 26th February, 2014. Does that mean Crystal Dynamic's next Tomb Raider game will be revealed to coincide with the comic book? Anything's possible.
