The announcement was of a brand new survival trailer and it can be seen below for your viewing pleasure. The Tomb Raider Reboot was eventually released on March 5th 2013 to critical acclaim. The title marked a departure from the original series’ storyline, offering a new perspective on Lara Croft’s origin story and introducing a darker, more mature tone to the franchise.
The original Tomb Raider series was first released in 1996 and became an instant classic, with Lara Croft quickly becoming one of gaming’s most recognisable characters. The series spawned multiple sequels, spin-offs, and even a few movies. However, by the time the series had reached its tenth iteration, the formula had become tired and predictable, and the franchise was in desperate need of a reboot.
Enter the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot, which not only reinvigorated the franchise but also brought Lara Croft back to her roots as an intelligent, resourceful, and capable archaeologist. The game’s narrative takes place before the events of the original series, presenting a young Lara Croft as a recent college graduate on her first archaeological expedition.
Players are thrust into a harrowing experience as Lara and her team are shipwrecked on a mysterious island, leaving Lara to fend for herself against hostile inhabitants, deadly traps, and dangerous predators. The game’s storyline was more grounded and realistic, providing an emotional and personal journey for Lara as she fought for survival and confronted her own vulnerabilities and fears.
The game’s mechanics and gameplay also received a significant overhaul. The game’s combat system was made more intuitive and satisfying, with a greater emphasis on stealth and resource management. The game’s puzzle-solving mechanics were also revamped, providing a more engaging and challenging experience for players.
The game’s graphics were also a significant improvement, with the lush environments and character animations providing a stunning and immersive experience. The game’s voice acting was also top-notch, with Camilla Luddington’s portrayal of Lara Croft earning critical acclaim and cementing her status as the definitive voice of the character.
Overall, the Tomb Raider reboot was a triumph, breathing new life into a beloved franchise and introducing a new generation of gamers to one of the most iconic characters in gaming history. The game’s success led to two sequels, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which built upon the foundation established in the first game and expanded upon Lara’s journey.
While the original Tomb Raider series will always hold a special place in the hearts of fans, the reboot proved that there was still plenty of life left in the franchise. By re-imagining Lara Croft’s origin story and introducing a more mature and grounded tone to the series, Crystal Dynamics created a game that was both a critical and commercial success and cemented Lara Croft’s status as one of gaming’s most iconic characters.
In conclusion, the Tomb Raider reboot was a much-needed breath of fresh air for the franchise, providing a new perspective on Lara Croft’s origin story and introducing a more mature and engaging narrative. The game’s mechanics, graphics, and voice acting were all top-notch, and the game’s success paved the way for two sequels that expanded upon Lara’s journey. The reboot proved that there was still plenty of life left in the franchise, and fans eagerly await the next installment in this beloved series.
