Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics has announced that it’s partnered with videogame journalist Geoff Keighley to produce The Final Hours of Tomb Raider – an innovative app and documentary web series that will give fans an “unprecedented, fly-on-the-wall perspective of the twists and turns of game development and highlight the key creative forces responsible for reimagining the iconic video game franchise Tomb Raider.”
“I have personally been a big fan of what Geoff achieved with the last two Final Hours projects,” said Karl Stewart, global brand director of Crystal Dynamics. “Sometimes the personal side of game development can get lost in the noise of bringing a game to fruition. Geoff has an uncanny ability to bring that side to life in a very unique and informative way.”
“The Final Hours series documents the creative process behind today’s most anticipated games, with a particular focus on the final stretch of development,” said Geoff Keighley. “In the case of Tomb Raider I’m especially excited because, at its heart, this is a tale about the act of reinvention, both of a studio and of a franchise.”
While The Final Hours of Tomb Raider app for iPad, PC and Kindle Fire will only be released alongside the game’s launch next March, the first episode in the documentary web series is already available for your viewing pleasure.
