A sequel to 2013's Tomb Raider reboot called Rise of the Tomb Raider has been confirmed, following Lara Croft as she slowly turns into the video-game heroine we know.
The last Tomb Raider was not about raiding tombs as much as it was about survival, abuse, near-death encounters, and many, many murders. Lara eventually escaped, and as the game touted "a survivor was born," though from the loooks of things, a survivor suffering from some sort of trauma. As the trailer goes on, with the therapist worrying about her falling into a "mental trap," Lara comes to the realisation that through adversity "we become who we're meant to be."
For the time being, the game doesn't have any dev-diary, gameplay footage or even proof of concept. This little teaser is all about Lara, the new version, as she is trying to fit the shoes of the heroine we are familiar with. She's not yet the gun-toading badass, but Rise of the Tomb Raider depicts a much more clear-headed and deliberate acting protagonist, compared to someone who was forced into a position she wasn’t equipped to handle.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is slated for release in 2015’s Holiday Season.
