Shadow of the Tomb Raider is coming later this year, and the first teaser trailer keeps Lara nearly completely in darkness as an incredible solar eclipse takes place. Lara's been through a lot, and we can imagine it's going to be an even more hard journey throughout her third game.
"Tomb Raider" is a mostly entertaining reboot of the action franchise that originally starred Angelina Jolie.
Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have officially unveiled Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Before departing on his final mission of mysterious exploration seven years earlier, Lord Croft left a trail of clues for his daughter, starting with the old "If you're watching this, I'm dead" video.
While Lara Croft: Tomb Raider was met with mostly negative reviews (it ranks at 19% on Rotten Tomatoes), it performed decently at the box office, making over $274 million worldwide. The site, too, has leaked the game's release date, which will be on September 14.
After her jumping and wrestling, the film has nothing new to add to the lore of tomb raiding so well exemplified by Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser.
The character's oddly-inflated anatomy originally had to do with the limitations of game design technology, with developers having to exaggerate Lara's design in order to make her pixelated form appear more recognizably female.
Alicia Vikander, 29, is set to star as the kick-ass archaeologist Lara Croft, but some fans are upset because she doesn't have her famous inflatable chest. The initial statement from the Tomb Raider Twitter account doesn't give anything away about what to expect from gameplay - not the location, time or even the theme of the game.
The solar eclipse looks to be a catalyst for the events within Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Tomb Raider is serviceable and enjoyable, but it's all very familiar.
