Rebooting the Tomb Raider franchise through an origin story wasn’t so much a choice as an act of necessity, according to Crystal Dynamics. Drastic measures were needed. To build an entirely fresh Lara – a culturally relevant hero worth of the attention that once came so effortlessly – they must break her first. In this new adventure – simply titled Tomb Raider – a younger and inexperienced Lara Croft must endure both physical and emotional trauma to survive.
That actually sounds interesting. I hope they can do a 'Batman Begins' and have the fantastic mystical elements with a grounded in reality feel to the game, rather than going straight for 'save the world from demons with insanely powerful ancient artifacts'.
