E3 2014: Rise of the Tomb Raider revealed with debut CG trailerWritten by: / / No Comments
Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have today formally announced the follow-up to 2013’s outstanding action adventure game, Tomb Raider, with the next journey in Lara Croft’s adventure in Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Due out in ‘Holiday’ 2015, Rise of the Tomb Raider will see Lara Croft continuing to refine your survival skills and “ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.”Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix, Darrell Gallagher , said:
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before.
“Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty Survival-Action style.”

“Rise of the Tomb Raider builds upon the formula that made Tomb Raider a success, and features the return of Camilla Luddington as Lara Croft. Camilla will take character performance to new heights as Lara pushes herself beyond human limits and is confronted with what it means to become a hero.
“Once again, Crystal Dynamics is proud to have the award-winning author Rhianna Pratchett as a key member of the writing team, helping craft a story that delves into Lara’s inner turmoil and motivations in this critical second act of her journey.”
