E3 2012: 4 minutes of Tomb Raider

2 min read


Yesterday, Microsoft – with the help of Crystal Dynamics demonstrated four minutes of gameplay from the new Tomb Raider reboot – showing a younger, less busty Lara Croft kicking ass.

When she wasn’t falling.

For those of you unwilling to sit through Microsoft’s press event, here’s the gameplay demonstration in full, looking very much like…well, Uncharted. Just like that PlayStation Flagship title, we’ll see our hero(ine!) face a number of contrived, wholly implausible scenarios – all in the name of adventure.  It might be a tad ridiculous, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look fun.

The game’s out for Pc, PS3 and Xbox 360 in March next year, but the title’s first DLC will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 – for a little while

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
