Crystal Dynamics has unveiled new details for Tomb Raider’s freshly announced sequel; Rise of the Tomb Raider. The game is set for a holiday 2015 release, and is set to follow Lara’s story after the events of Tomb Raider, as she delves deeper into the impossible world she glimpsed previously. Now in therapy, Lara will journey to fulfill her destiny: the Tomb Raider.
Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix, said:
“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. 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.”
Voice actress Camilla Luddington and author Rhianna Pratchett are both reprising their previous roles, as Lara Croft and key writer respectively. Check out the trailer below.
