The Tomb Raider series is one that should have died a long time ago. Eidos killed series protagonist Lara Croft off, then brought her back, then added some Mountain-Dew psychic dude who threw boomarangs or something, then restarted the series with sub-par games, then blew up her house. And this is all after having four of five games on the Playstation One. Yikes.
Never fear, dear readers; That old Lara is gone. The series is getting the DmC treatment, complete with a younger, beat-up main character.
Titled simply as "Tomb Raider", the team at Crystal Dynamics are hard at work making an origins story that creates a new Lara, rather than explaining or retrofitting into the old one. Studio head Darrell Gallagher had this to say:
"Forget everything you knew about TOMB RAIDER. This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other."
The story starts when a ship is wrecked and a sole survivor is left stranded on an unknown island, where she must fight to survive. Sounds cool.
Maybe this time, it'll be more than just boobs.
