Lara Croft’s Origin Revealed in New Tomb Raider: Do You Care?

Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft will grace the cover of Game Informer’s January 2011 issue. The new Tomb Raider game will reveal the earliest tales of Miss Croft (the adventuring tales, not her discovery of womanhood). In a recent press release, Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher said:

Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider, we are exploring things that have never been done before in this game. This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.

Tomb Raider was one of the most influential franchises in modern gaming, but the series has hit several bumps on the road. I wanted to see if you still care about Tomb Raider and Lara Croft. Do you think younger gamers even know who she is? Are you interested in learning about her origins? Speak now or forever hold your piece peace!

  1. I think the biggest issues with this series are related more to stale gameplay than a stale Lara. I mean, every game has bad camera angles for the platforming and poor combat.

  2. I think kids would know Lara Croft from the Jolie movies not the PS games. My gf would love this! Must…get…more….details.

    1. Yeah, my wife loves the Tomb Raider games. She might be the one person on Earth that thought Angel of Darkness was decent.

      1. WHAT?!? Please tell me that's a joke. You know that Core Design actually apologized for that game, right?


  3. If you had not of told me this was Lara Croft I would have just assumed it was a new 'hero' from a Final Fantasy game.

      1. Lara takes showers too, but we aren't talking about the part where she discovers womanhood.
