SQUARE ENIX and Crystal Dynamics have released a new trailer for their forthcoming game Tomb Raider.


Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.

Shipwrecked on an island off the coast of Japan, Lara Croft began armed with nothing more than her wits and will to live. Forced to forage for food and defend herself from hostile natives, Lara is forever changed when her friends are captured and she realizes she is the only one who can save them. Pushed to the limits of human fortitude, Lara knows that if she doesn’t survive, none of them will.

And here is the trailer:

I am a huge fan of the new Tomb Raider game, and recently I got to play the first three hours of Tomb Raider – my preview post will be up soon.

    Thematically, this Tomb Raider sounds better than the previous games, which were all a little light on story, but I’m concerned with how the game-play mechanics are going to turn out. That worry is the biggest thing keeping me from breaking my game-buying rule and picking it up right away. I actually got my game-buying rule from one of my coworkers at DISH after being seriously disappointed by Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Now I never buy a game until I’ve been able to play-test it. So I rent all my games through DISH’s Blockbuster@Home first, which is a subscription rental service for games and movies. So if the game’s short (without replay value), or I don’t like it, I don’t buy it at all. And that’s saved me a sizeable chunk of money. Even though I’m not ready to drop $60 on it, I’ll put Tomb Raider in my Blockbuster@Home queue now so I’ll get to play it right after it’s released.
