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.

A woman scorned

Someone notify Christina Aguilera

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...

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..
Whether you think she looks cool or like a bloodied version of Ruud Van Nistelrooy, the new Lara Croft is here to stay
That's because Crystal Dynamics has spent the past few years creating a brand new Tomb Raider adventure, one which hopefully propels the franchise back to its former glory. The game was officially announced yesterday as part of GameInformer's cover reveal, but now eagle-eyed NeoGAF..
Y'know what franchise has needed a reboot for a long, long time? Tomb Raider
Y'know what franchise is getting a reboot after a long, long time? Tomb Raider. That's right, Square Enix has announced a new Tomb Raider game called, well, Tomb Raider. It's an origin story too, and it looks kinda awesome. "Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider," said Darrell Gallagher, head of..

This whole story stinks to be honest
Firstly, hot as she may be, does anyone really want Megan Fox to play Lara Croft? Can you imagine the British accent and terrible acting? We're not trying to claim that the Angelina Jolie movies were good by any stretch, but at least she's a competent enough actress to tackle the part. Megan Fox - less so. Alas, the rumours that Megan Fox will be reprising..
