Square Enix has released a new and hugely insightful trailer that looks at how the incredible E3 2011 trailer for Tomb Raider came into being, from concept art to the development and into eventual fruition, with one of the most stunning videos shown at the trade show in LA this year.
It all started when Crystal Dynamics saw the "mindblowing CG" trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution that the team decided they wanted to employ the same Visual Works CG wizards to create the E3 'Turning Point' trailer for Tomb Raider. Furnishing Visual Works with concept art and a goal for the video, Crystal Dynamics got a suitably dramatic and visually outstanding trailer in return, which you can learn all about in this new behind the scenes vid.
Running at 12 minutes, it's a genuinely interesting watch to learn how the Tomb Raider Turning Point trailer was brought to life. You can watch it again below if you've forgotten just how good it was, then be sure to check out the making of video afterwards. Tomb Raider is out in 2012.
