Crystal Dynamics a Square Enix studio have revealed a new Tomb Raider game is in the works along with an E3 trailer
“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,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix. “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.”
The game will build upon the 2013 Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider reboot bringing back the writing talents of Rhianna Pratchett who has also penned scripts for the Overlord series and EA’s Mirrors Edge. Camilla Luddington who played Lara Croft in the 2013 release is also coming back to play the legendary video game heroine. According to Crystal Dynamics, ”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.”
