About a billion versions available
'That's crazy, we don't want to do that'
About a billion versions available
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s reveal embargo has lifted, but you’ve already seen most of the assets as they leaked in traditional Square Enix style. After reading a handful of the previews, it sounds like more of the same, which will be a good or bad thing depending on your appetite for Camilla Luddington acting...
Yesterday we saw Shadow of the Tomb Raider's pre-order options, box art, and screenshots ahead of the game's official unveiling, and today we also have the trailer, which has appeared early thanks to Microsoft. You can watch said trailer through here, and it's a mood-setting CG piece. It looks pretty great from where we're sitting. It seems...
Lara Croft looks different again
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was revealed to the media at a swanky London venue earlier today, but you’ll need to wait until tomorrow to see all of the goods. Or at least, that’s what Square Enix was hoping – the Internet has other ideas. In traditional fashion, practically everything has leaked, so enjoy these...
Well, it could have been worse – just ask Angelina Jolie. Tomb Raider’s been revamped for the silver screen, with a fresh-faced Alicia Vikander stepping into the tank top of the iconic Lara Croft. Following in the footsteps of the fairly recent video game reboot, this blockbuster-on-a-budget attempts to ground the fledgling...
'That's crazy, we don't want to do that'
Cory Barlog has been dreaming of a single shot game for some time. Speaking with Daily Star, the God of War creative director revealed that he pitched the concept to the Tomb Raider team during his spell at Crystal Dynamics, but the idea was rejected. A video released yesterday revealed how
No dumb exclusivity
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will not be bound by a ridiculous period of exclusivity like its predecessor, with the new entry launching day-and-date on the PlayStation 4 from 14th September. Of course, all of this already leaked, but you can see the high-quality teaser trailer embedded below, courtesy of the official PlayStation...
In potato cam quality, of course
Well, here’s your first look at Shadow of the Tomb Raider, officially set to be revealed in a few hours. The clip doesn’t really show a fat lot, other than what appears to be a pyramid right at the end. That is a pyramid, right? Or is it Mayan temples? It's probably Mayan, right? Yeah, it's Mayan. The clip...
Rumoured release date is 14th September
Tomb Raider’s official website has updated teasing an announcement for 6AM PDT (1PM GMT) tomorrow. The blank page shows a solar eclipse, but cyber sleuths have done some digging into the website’s HTML and discovered a 14th September release date. Square Enix did say that it would launch soon after the...
Brings back a Lara memories
We’re not sure whether it was the case in other countries, but Lara Croft was an absolute superstar in the UK throughout the latter half of the 90s. The character adorned the cover of magazines, frequently topped the video game charts, and was also chosen as the “face” of Lucozade. The advertisement embedded below...
You'll want to protect her
Few things in life are more terrifying that this Tomb Raider-themed Barbie doll, designed to celebrate the release of the new Alicia Vikander movie. Fresh from her roles as an astronaut, vet, and fashion entrepreneur, the popular toy is now taking a turn as archaeologist Lara Croft herself – complete with steely glare...
That new Tomb Raider movie is very much still on track for a 16th March release, so here’s Alicia Vikander in a vest doing her best English accent. This latest trailer reveals a little more about the plot, which appears to be sticking quite closely to the 2013 reboot. In fact, a handful of the set-pieces teased in the two minute clip...
"Won't be long between reveal and when you can play"
There’s a new Tomb Raider game in development, and Square Enix doesn’t want you to know just yet, but it’s called Shadow of the Tomb Raider. How do we know? Because it leaked months ago: Eidos Montreal is making it while Crystal Dynamics keeps itself occupied with The Avengers. Sorry for the...
Alicia they tried
The first Tomb Raider movie trailer is finally out, and – y’know what, it actually doesn’t look that bad. Like, don’t get us wrong, there are a few shots where the sets look really artificial and cheap – but it seems fine for a B-movie thing. It looks like the plot is modelled after the 2013 video game reboot, as...
There’s a Tomb Raider movie launching in March 2018, and the marketing machine just went into overdrive. Ahead of a trailer set to debut tomorrow, Warner Bros has released the first poster showing Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. If we’re being really critical, we don’t like her pose here – it just looks weird. Fortunately, promo...
But may not be representative of all face-offs moving forwards
It’s time to whip out your framerate tickers and your favourite image zooming tool: the Xbox One X is around the corner and that means the industry at large is getting ready to split hairs. To be fair, this first comparison featuring Rise of the Tomb Raider puts in an impressive...
Off to Egypt?
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was already spotted on a Canadian subway, and we’ve since learned that it’s almost certainly in production at Eidos Montreal, while series developer Crystal Dynamics turns its attention to The Avengers. And now a website seems to have leaked the first concept art and assets from the tit
Rise of the tomb raider
Here are the first official screenshots from the Tomb Raider movie reboot which is set to release in theatres next year. The shots show Alicia Vikander in the iconic Lara Croft role, sporting a costume that must have cost the production company all of… Ooh, $40 at absolute most. As we reported previously, this is obviously...
Shooting has started on the new Tomb Raider movie, and the paparazzi have managed to snag the first shots of star Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. As you can clearly see from the pictures, the costume appears to have been very much inspired by Crystal Dynamics' reboot, with the much more petite archaeologist rocking a ripped tank top and...
Rhianna Pratchett, the scribe behind Crystal Dynamics' popular Tomb Raider reboot and its more recent sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider, has decided to move on from the franchise. The writer announced the news on Twitter this evening, thanking the team for their dedication and series fans for being the "best in the world". It's unclear...
Go download this game
In an industry so focused on creating ever larger and more expansive experiences, there's something to be said about the power of focus. Lara Croft Go is a title that's not focused on wowing the player with a billion different features that create the illusion of depth, instead opting for a simplified, handcrafted feel that...
It's about this point in time where the PSX 2016 organisers start to get fidgety, because everything is starting to leak. First up, Lara Croft Go – which almost certainly would have occupied the Gio Corsi segment of the press conference – has all but been confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and Vita. You can view its Trophies through here...
Who'd have thought that PlayStation 4 black sheep Rise of the Tomb Raider would become the best example of graphical options on the PS4 Pro? The game – which allows you to select from three very distinct modes – not only caters to 4K television owners with a stunning Ultra High-Definition version, but also includes two 1080p...
The choice is yours
Square Enix has released an informative new Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer which details how the game can be played on PS4 Pro. Basically, it'll feature multiple modes that you can toggle between, allowing you to improve the frame rate, the resolution, or graphical effects in general. Lara's latest already looks pretty good...
What does that mean for Crystal Dynamics?
Remember that Shadow of the Tomb Raider rumour we reported on earlier? The ever-reliable Jason Schreier of Kotaku has suggested that it's legit. But there's more: Eidos Montreal, perhaps best known for the recent Deus Ex releases, may be taking the reins of the franchise from Crystal Dynamics.
We live in an era where fraudsters 3D print Nintendo consoles in order to "out" them, so we've no idea if this Shadow of the Tomb Raider leak is genuine or not – but seeing as an Assassin's Creed game was once revealed on a plane, we're going to file this one in the 'maybe' pile. A Reddit user has u
But breaks the game for many
Lara Croft only clambered her way onto the PlayStation 4 last week, but she's already been patched up. A new update for Rise of the Tomb Raider released today, pledging 4K support for the PlayStation 4 Pro. The notes also mention reduced input lag, as well as various stability and bug fixes. The catch? Many are...
A whole Lara love
Sony always makes the best press kits – but it may have been beaten by Square Enix here. In order to celebrate the launch of Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PlayStation 4, the publisher's really playing up the property's origins – and it's been sending press copies of the game in a classic PSone case. It just feels right,...
Home at last
Just a heads up: Rise of the Tomb Raider has finally released on the PlayStation 4 today. To be fair, Square Enix has done a decent job rekindling hype for Ms. Croft's latest expedition – even if it is over a year late. But with PlayStation VR out this week and other major titles on the horizon, you could be forgiven for forgetting...
That's a Lara gamerscore
This must be some sort of record: Rise of the Tomb Raider will release with a whopping 125 Trophies on the PlayStation 4. The trinkets span the main game alongside its many expansion packs, and consist of an eye-watering 118 bronze trinkets. The remaining seven gongs are divided up between five silver, one gold, and one...
What a difference a year makes. Just 12 months ago, Rise of the Tomb Raider was one of the tentpole titles in Microsoft's "greatest ever" Xbox lineup -- and now it's one of the posterchilds of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Maybe -- just maybe -- Square Enix played a blinder after all. Or, perhaps, this title's going to flop for the second or...
Rise of the Tomb Raider launches on the PlayStation 4 next month with a bevy of bonus material – including PlayStation VR support in a brand new chapter. And, after last year's disappointing launch, Square Enix is now fighting hard to revive some interest in the release. This trailer has been prepared to coincide with the Tokyo Game Show, and...
We already know that Square Enix is going above and beyond with the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider, packing it with content to make up for the title's year long delay. But has it gone the extra mile in terms of performance, too? Digital Foundry has posted a quick preliminary investigation from the Gamescom 2016 show...
We're diggin' it
We hold our hands up: Square Enix has gone above and beyond with the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider. While we're still disappointed that we've had to wait a year to play the game, the publisher's really doing everything it can to sweeten the deal – like throwing in a free copy of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition...
Square Enix will debut the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider at Gamescom next month, where German convention attendees will get to go hands-on with Lara Croft's latest on Sony's new-gen system. The packed port's headlining a pretty stacked show for the Japanese publisher, with Final Fantasy XV, Dragon Quest Builders, Final...
Square Enix targeting 1080p, 30 frames-per-second
Following yesterday's not-so surprise news, Square Enix has released a trailer for Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PlayStation 4 – but you'll need to sit through a few minutes of nostalgia before you get to it. The embedded video looks back at 20 years
Manor you milking this
Yesterday we published a poll regarding Rise of the Tomb Raider's release date rumours. While we were confident in the source, we didn't expect Square Enix to come out and confirm the news today – but it has. As previously reported, the action adventure will deploy on
Classic character models, co-op, and much more
How do you get people to care about Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PlayStation 4 a year after release? You quite literally throw the kitchen sink at it! Square Enix has confirmed today that its critically acclaimed action adventure will finally release on Sony's system on 11th October – and it will...
It's a Lara money
The rumour that Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to release on the PlayStation 4 on 11th October prompted some pretty interesting discussion here on Push Square this weekend. According to the GameStop Italy listing – from which this entire story stems – Square Enix will be charging around €70 for the port, which suggests that...
And it may not be cheap
Ex-Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider will purportedly shimmy to the PlayStation 4 on 11th October, assuming that a product listing on the Italian arm of GameStop is accurate. The date's a Tuesday which isn't necessarily in line with typical European releases, but publisher Square Enix may be planning a simultaneous...
But still no firm date
The saga of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues – well, sort of. Despite not being mentioned at E3 2016 last month, Square Enix has reiterated in a Q&A that the game is still on track for release later this year on the PlayStation 4. According to Crystal Dynamics via an admin on the publisher's
Lara, where are yer?
You know the story by now: Microsoft paid to delay Rise of the Tomb Raider for a year on the PlayStation 4, with the action adventure due out on Sony's system in late 2016. As big fans of the franchise, we've actually been eagerly awaiting a release date for the critically acclaimed sequel, but it just won't come. We thought...
Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander to play the iconic character
Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, perhaps best known for her roles in Ex Machina and The Danish Girl, will play Lara Croft in Warner Bros and MGM's forthcoming Tomb Raider movie reboot. The Oscar-winning actress has secured the role despite it being heavily linked with Star Wars' Daisy Ridley...
Rey to go
Don't worry: we have no intention of writing nerd culture stories on this site any time soon, so you can sleep easy knowing you're safe from Marvel movie trailers here. (Speaking of which, it's been a few days since the last one – they should really rectify that.) This is an interesting little tidbit, though: according to Deadline,...
PC launch due in January
It seems that Rise of the Tomb Raider will launch on the PC in January, perhaps saving the game's sales blushes after a disastrous Xbox exclusive release. This is consistent with Square Enix's comments that the PC edition would deploy in "early 2016" – but it seems sooner than even we anticipated. Could the company's...
Make your mark
Word on the retail grapevine is that Rise of the Tomb Raider's not trending well, but Microsoft and Square Enix still have a couple of weeks to turn that around. This launch trailer for the temporary Xbox exclusive may help, as we see Lara Croft coming face to face with a group named Trinity, who are in search of MacGuffin artefacts...
If looks could kill
Strengthening its similarities to The Last of Us, the forthcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider – which will deploy on the PlayStation 4 next year – can be played non-lethally. You may remember the Gamescom 2015 demo, which showed protagonist Lara Croft brutally eviscerating a slew of guards. Well, embedded below you'll find the...
With a PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider confirmed for 2016, we suppose that we should start covering it like any other game. And this latest footage from Gamescom 2015 is worth talking about, as it shows heroine Lara Croft embroiled in a variety of sticky situations. Get your mind out of the gutter, we don't mean like...
Well, that's a relief
Everyone in the entertainment industry is absolutely obsessed with trilogies, so it's no surprise to learn that Crystal Dynamics has three games mapped out for Tomb Raider's current story arc. Square Enix boss Phil Rogers let the snippet slip during an interview with GameSpot earlier today, describing Lara Croft's latest...
Crystal Dynamics looked to Uncharted for inspiration for its Tomb Raider reboot, and it looks like the developer's used Naughty Dog as a guide again. This time the studio's latest takes more than a few cues from The Last of Us, as we see protagonist Lara Croft sneaking through an enemy base Rambo-style, slitting lots of throats. The...
Well, that's a start
Square Enix may actually understand its audience after all, as the publisher's European and North American boss Phil Rogers has admitted that the company knew it would "disappoint fans" by essentially delaying the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The company still seems adamant that this was a good business...
So, the Croft is out of the bag: Rise of the Tomb Raider will release on the PlayStation 4 – but not until next year. The moment that Microsoft admitted its exclusivity arrangement had a "duration", it always seemed likely that the game would eventually explore Sony's new-gen system – but we were
The Xbox One may have an exclusivity deal on Rise of the Tomb Raider for the time being, but that doesn't mean that Lara Croft's latest adventure is never coming to the PlayStation 4. We've said it from the beginning: once the holidays are over and Crystal Dynamics has fulfilled its contract, you can expect to hear word of a PS4 port. And while...
Port will apparently not be full-price
Time to take out your mouth guard and chomp down on a tasty rumour regarding Rise of the Tomb Raider: the Xbox exclusive will apparently release on the PlayStation 4 in Q4 2016. This tidbit comes courtesy of YouTube channel The Know, which has a shaky track record right now; the account successfully leaked...
Xbox exclusivity a problem for PlayStation fans
Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't coming out on the PlayStation 4 – well, not yet anyway. In all likelihood, the release will launch on Sony's system six or so months after the Xbox version deploys in November – but that's still quite a long wait for fans of the franchise. Asked whether PlayStation...
Seeing as Microsoft stuck rigidly to its Holiday 2015 qualifier for Rise of the Tomb Raider's exclusivity, we can safely assume that it's coming to the PlayStation 4 next year. As such, we're stretching things a little, we know – but its gameplay demonstration is probably just about worth sharing here. In the clip, we see...
Ice ice, baby
Well, this is all a bit awkward, isn't it? Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, recently re-iterated that Rise of the Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive, so we should probably post this brand new trailer, right? You'll have to forgive us for all of the Microsoft branding which is plastered all over the, admittedly brief, clip, then. There's...
Why are we waiting
There was a slight scare recently, as avid Tomb Raider fans discovered a Facebook post by Xbox Australia, which stated that Rise of the Tomb Raider was not a timed exclusive, and was, in fact, a fully exclusive Xbox One title. This information contradicted what Xbox boss Phil Spencer had said about th
That's a Lara copies
Lara Croft is officially relevant again – well, as long as you ignore the fact that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be exclusive to Xbox for an undisclosed span of time. Square Enix confirmed earlier today that 2013's top-notch Tomb Raider reboot has now sold 8.5 million copies globally, making it the best-selling entry in the...
"We'll come back to that at a later date"
There's a real danger that Rise of the Tomb Raider could end up being defined by behind-the-scenes business decisions, and Game Informer's latest cover story is evidence of that. While the publication's coverage includes plenty of details about Lara Croft's forthcoming foray, most people want to know one...
Familiar faces, too many balls
Lara Croft is back, kicking butt across an isometric playground filled with demons and darkness, just like in The Guardian of Light. Fans of the original spin-off title will feel instantly at home exploring The Temple of Osiris, fighting off alligators in terrible wigs and solving “puzzles” that tend to involve...
We daresay that that recent Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End demo may have prompted you to forget about poor Lara Croft – after all, the recent Tomb Raider reboot, while thoroughly enjoyable, was very derivative of Nathan Drake’s primary PlayStation 3 escapades. However, the forthcoming Rise of Tomb Raider has been brought back to...
Well, this is it: your consolation prize. Rise of the Tomb Raider isn’t coming to the PlayStation 4 anytime soon – though we can be quietly confident that it’ll hit Sony's system after the Xbox One release – so you’re going to have to make do with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for the time being. The sequel to Lara...
A Lara savings
If you were outraged at the idea of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition being sold at full price earlier in the year, then perhaps this week’s European PlayStation Store Deal of the Week discount will make Lara Croft’s spruced up escapade a little more palatable to you. Square Enix has slashed the PlayStation 4 re-release’s price...
What a Lara rubbish
Rise of the Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics definitely didn’t mean to upset you when it agreed to an exclusivity deal with Microsoft. In the aftermath of last week’s Gamescom 2014 backlash, the studio has posted a new message on the franchise’s
PlayStation executive shocked by reveal
You weren’t the only one surprised at Rise of the Tomb Raider’s exclusivity announcement during the Microsoft media briefing at Gamescom last week, as Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida was also shocked to learn the news. In an interview with
"We don't have an action adventure game of that quality"
Back when Microsoft ambiguously announced that it had secured Xbox exclusive rights to Rise of the Tomb Raider, we speculated that it may have been looking for a direct competitor to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The specifics of the deal are still shaky almost seven days later, but it...
Pretty much, anyway
Told you so. In an interview with Eurogamer.net, Xbox chief Phil Spencer has admitted that Rise of the Tomb Raider isn’t actually an Xbox One exclusive at all, and that its deal with Square Enix has a set “duration”. That means that,
Still fuming over that Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusivity announcement? Yeah, we’re a bit sore, too – but we’re currently consoling ourselves with the indelible image of Nathan Drake stomping on Lara Croft’s perfect face. That’ll learn her. Still, as developer Crystal Dynamics so vali
Reading between the lines
Kudos to Microsoft, it actually dropped a press conference megaton. While we’d argue that Jack Tretton’s corporate beatdown at E3 2013 was a memorable media briefing moment, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise – in fact, those are becoming rarer as the major industry players all merge into a similar entity. The fact...
We thoroughly enjoyed Crystal Dynamics’ tense Tomb Raider reboot on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but in many ways it felt like an Uncharted game with a slightly smaller budget. Fortunately, the developer is pulling out all of the stops with Rise of the Tomb Raider, the release’s recently announced sequel, as it’s...
With a much more sensible name
It seems the torture never ends for Lara Croft, as the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't the only game the adventurer will be suffering through in the imminent future. As a part of a Gametrailers E3 livestream, Square Enix has officially announced that Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, a multiplayer...
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...
A woman scorned
Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics will be making an announcement at E3 2014 this week, and it could pertain to a new adventure starring Lara Croft. Industry sleuth Superannuation spotted that publisher Square Enix has registered domains for
Someone notify Christina Aguilera
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII star, er, Lightning is quickly becoming the digital double of Jessica Nigri. Not content with cosplaying as Cloud Strife – among a slew of other characters – Square Enix has
Will it keep you warm during Winter?
When the PlayStation 4 was first announced by Sony last year, the platform holder made a handful of next generation promises which we feel that it has delivered on. For starters, the visuals are far superior to its ageing accomplice, the touchpad is able to add depth to certain genres, and the general interface...
Almost 70 per cent of sales come from PS4
Throughout the previous generation, it was extremely rare for the PlayStation 3 versions of multiplatform games to sell best in the UK. Make no mistake, franchises such as Call of Duty and FIFA would almost always chart, but they’d struggle to outsell their infinitely more popular Xbox 360 counterparts...
Rather than force you to sit through a string of paragraphs longer than the average historical textbook, we’ll get straight to the point: Lara Croft’s next generation debut looks the part on the PlayStation 4. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition may be little more than a cleaned up retread of last year’s dirty day-trip to...
Whole Lara love
We try to shy away from direct console comparisons as much as possible here on Push Square, but there is a storm brewing around the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Despite both releases boasting some significant visual upgrades, reports suggest that the enhanced iteration on Sony’s console...
She's a survivor
This launch trailer for imminent PlayStation 4 re-release Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition would have been better with a subtle blast of Destiny’s Child, but we won’t hold that against it. Strategically deployed days before the upcoming upgrade’s retail release, the video shows Britain’s bustiest export in a variety of...
A well crofted experience
If you haven't been paying attention, Crystal Dynamics' next-gen re-release Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition has recently been the subject of much speculation in regards to its visual virtuosity. In particular, the game's technical aptitude has come into question, with rumou
Don't look down
Those of you without a head for heights may want to fondle your browser’s friendly ‘Back’ button, as this first-person footage of PlayStation icon Lara Croft may leave you a little worse for wear. The video – created by perspective adaptation specialist Filipe B. Costa – shows a classic Tomb Raider title through the eyes of...
Re-release will run like clockwork
If there’s one thing that intrepid archaeologist Lara Croft hates more than busted antiques and those bleeders that inhabit the spooky setting of Yamatai, it’s an inconsistent framerate. Crystal Dynamics’ enjoyable Tomb Raider reboot for the PlayStation 3 served up a likeable slice of survival action, but...
In one of the few genuinely interesting announcements at this year's Spike VGX Awards, we learned that Crystal Dynamics' reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise would be getting an updated re-release
Dig out that David Bowie record
Just as she’s a fan of dusty old objects, video game heroine Lara Croft is also rather keen on reconstructive surgery. The protagonist underwent a serious facelift for Crystal Dynamics’ recent Tomb Raider reboot – and for the upcoming PlayStation 4 port, she’s delved under the knife yet again. Those of you...
There's always a price to the prize
Crystal Dynamics’ recent Tomb Raider reboot was all about resilience in the most abhorrent conditions, so perhaps the North American developer is trying to channel that with the Trophy list for its upcoming PlayStation 4 re-release, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. As leaked on PS3Trophies.com, the roster of...
'Use the shotgun, girl'
We already know that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will boast a number of updated features on the PlayStation 4, but one thing that developer Crystal Dynamics has kept under wraps is the fact that the title will actually support voice controls on Sony’s next generation hardware. Speaking as part of a Question and Answer...
She's worth it
Yes, we already sort of knew about it – but Square Enix has now finally confirmed that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is coming to the PlayStation 4. The re-release will wash up on 28th January, and will augment the adventure with the TressFX hair physics from the PC version. The title will also boast improved textures and will...
There's a Lara games to look forward to
As hinted earlier in the year, Lara Croft’s holiday from Hell is set to be prolonged on the PlayStation 4 next month. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition leaked on the Italian arm of Amazon in November, and has now popped up on
Crystal Dynamics' uber-awesome looking Tomb Raider reboot has hit alpha, the developer has announced
Alpha essentially means that the game is "feature complete" and will now go through a rigorous polishing and testing period in order to make it the best it possibly can be. The tid-bit was announced on the latest Crystal Dynamics podcast, with senior producer Kyle Peschel and art director..
It's been a while since we heard anything from Crystal Dynamics
The developer has clearly been working hard on its uber-promising upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. But while Lara Croft's latest adventure is clearly at the heart of the studio's endeavours, Crystal Dynamics is also making plans to unveil a brand new IP in 2012 too. The New Year ushers in more than just fresh calendars and renewed..
Spoilers: there's a new Tomb Raider flick in the works
And much like next year's video game reboot, the movie will be an origins story of kinds. Producer Graham King spilled the beans in an interview with Coming Soon, promising that while the film will still include plenty of action, it will serve as a "character piece" above all. "Listen, the [previous Tomb Raider films] weren't..
We'd rather Crystal Dynamics marked the 15th anniversary of Tomb Raider with the release of its awesome looking series reboot, but seeing as that title's still a year away we'll have to make do with a digital art exhibition instead
The developer has commissioned a variety of pieces designed to showcase Lara's look in the new game, while also embracing the individual style of each of the selected..
Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider E3 demonstration was one of the high-points of the video games convention in June
Packed with stunning camera work and tons of tension, the gameplay slice showed a real white-knuckle ride as Lara desperately tried to escape from a hazardous underground cave. But the demo wasn't faultless, and it did leave some people a little concerned. For example, the game relied..
Fact: we couldn't be more excited for Crystal Dynamics' upcoming Tomb Raider
The game looks phenomenal. But with Lara Croft established as a house-hold name, what pushed Crystal Dynamics to reboot the historical franchise? Brand director Karl Stewart told Rock Paper Shotgun that the character and series was "losing relevance". The problem, according to Stewart, is that gamers are tired of..
Crystal Dynamics has released a bumper making-of documentary for its staggering Tomb Raider E3 trailer
In the 12-minute video, Tomb Raider's brand manager Karl Stewart reveals how Crystal Dynamics worked with Square Enix's internal CG team to craft the game's moody debut. It's a fascinating watch if you're into making-of videos. Man, we wished they'd push Tomb Raider's release forward. Just hearing..
The star of Microsoft's E3 press conference just so happened to be a multiplatform game
Earlier this evening Crystal Dynamics took to the stage to reveal the first gameplay footage of its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The demonstration showed Lara Croft trapped in a capitulating cave while being chased by a shady figure. Clearly Crystal Dynamics has been playing a whole ton of Uncharted, but there's..
Square Enix has released a CG trailer for the new Tomb Raider game and it looks phenomenal
We absolutely adore the tone of the game — the lone survivor theme is fascinating. We also went in expecting to hate Lara Croft's voice — how can you better Keeley Hawes? — but we actually really like the voice actor. The biggest problem with this trailer is the release date that pops up at the end..
It might be bubbling under the radar a touch, but we think Square Enix's upcoming Tomb Raider reboot is going to surprise a lot of people
Crystal Dynamics has gradually been making Tomb Raider more and more relevant over recent iterations, and we fully expect this to be the game that makes everyone step back and say, "Woah, Tomb Raider is back." The debut trailer will be an entirely CGI..
What a downer to start a Monday morning on
We woke flowing with energy, but Crystal Dynamics has just kicked the wind out of our sails. Tweeting about the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, global brand director Karl Stewart has revealed that the brilliant Keeley Hawes will not be returning to voice Lara in the new game. It all started when Stewart Tweeted: Still on the lookout. Shes out there, I..
Intentional or not (we think it's probably intentional), there's a definite survival horror vibe to these first Tomb Raider shots released by Square Enix this afternoon
Lara looks beaten, bloody, and much less super-woman than we've seen her before. In the screenshot above we see her scrambling across the ground, obviously a lot less glamorous than before. This excites us. We're done with Lara's..
