We got our first look at the new Tomb Raider via a video the other day, but now we have even more details as they were revealed at E3 earlier today. The game is set during Lara’s first adventure as the ship has set out on to see the world ends up shipwrecked on an island. Of course the island isn’t fully deserted, and the 21-year-old Croft is quickly captured and has to use her survival instincts to try to save herself.
The spokespeople from Crystal Dynamics really stressed that they see this game as an origin story for the popular gaming character and hope to relaunch the series based on this new title.
Just from the little bit of gameplay they showed off, you can see that the lighting and shading in this game looks truly stunning, and the realistic effects on the fire were stunning. It looks like this title has a real shot at reinvigorating what was once a leading franchise, but had slowly dies off due to sub-par sequels.
Here’s a free screenshots from the demo.
