Lara Croft is arguably the most iconic and well known heroine from video games as she’s been a part of every PlayStation console excluding the newly released PS5. While a new AAA adventure is yet to be teased let alone announced, there is good news in that Square Enix have revealed Tomb Raider Reloaded. Here you’ll find what Tomb Raider Reloaded is as classic Lara Croft is poised to return on mobile in 2021.
The last AAA adventure starring Lara Croft was Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and this was mostly regarded as a semi-decent finale to the reboot trilogy. It came out back in 2018, but since then we’ve heard nothing about a major new release, and the only other recent news we’ve heard about the iconic British character is that the movie sequel starring Alicia Vikander has been delayed indefinitely.
Although a new AAA game isn’t in sight, below you’ll discover the most anyone knows about Tomb Raider Reloaded.
What is Tomb Raider Reloaded?
Tomb Raider Reloaded is an upcoming free to play action arcade game developed by Emerald City Games.
Although mobile and action arcade is likely to disappoint, fans will at least be happy that Tomb Raider Reloaded looks to have classic Lara Croft aesthetics.
One of the biggest grievances amongst old-school fans with the most recent AAA trilogy was Lara Croft looking and acting relatively dull.
While the character was more human, her constant whining, shouting, and shrieking made her pale greatly in comparison to the Lara Croft of old who was witty and cocky while also stylish in attire.
Although Square Enix’s teaser for Tomb Raider Reloaded is only brief, we at least see Lara Croft wearing her trademark tank top and shorts combo while also dual-wielding pistols.
The teaser also suggests that there will be plenty of traps plus fierce beast such as dinosaurs.
When is the release date for Tomb Raider Reloaded?
There is no release date for Tomb Raider Reloaded.
However, while there’s no date, Tomb Raider Reloaded does have a release window of 2021.
It is coming to mobiles only, which – again – will disappoint those who are awaiting a new AAA release.
Here’s hoping that any hypothetical AAA announcement in the future embraces the old-school Lara Croft rather than continue to hide her behind Uncharted explosions and a Katniss Everdeen portrayal.
