E3 2014: Rise of the Tomb Raider Furthers Lara Croft's Journey

Posted by Sammy Barker

Be whatever you want to be

Video game vixen Lara Croft will continue her progression from petite explorer to buxom badass in Rise of the Tomb Raider next year. Announced during Microsoft’s E3 media briefing, the debut trailer showed a distressed protagonist talking to a shrink, who emphatically informed her that “people become who they are meant to be”. It’s a bit like when we were always destined to stay up all night writing about video games, only cooler in the Crystal Dynamics game’s case.

There’s no official word on platforms at the time of typing, but it’s safe to assume that it will be coming to the PlayStation 4 in addition to Microsoft’s next-gen machine. The first footage shows the heroine using her iconic bow, battling with grizzly bears, and clambering through tropical climes. Are you excited to see the legendary star make a comeback so soon? Check out the trailer and let us know in the comments section below.

If you are going to stay up all night writing - as we all know you are - better start drinking coffee now b/c that 1st sentence has some issues. :-)

Still need to play the reboot, but good to see. A little bit too "Other:M" though maybe, no? Well, I still say it could be Chloe Frazer's back story, so there's that.

I am so excited for this, as the first game was absolutely stellar! However, that name is complete nonsense.

Lara taking hits here and there.
Why am i not surprised?
Because in the first game she got beaten so many times she should have died 47 times.
And yet that game was excellent, much better than Uncharted, imho.
I just hope they evolve the series, and not just add more of the same.

I liked Tomb Raider, just needs more puzzle element is all. Hopefully they can rectify the situation with a proper follow up.
