Lara Gets Dirty and Tied Up In Latest Tomb Raider Screens

The recently announced Tomb Raider, developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix Europe and Eidos, is definitely taking Lara in a new, darker direction. While Tomb Raider fans have heard all this “new direction” and “darker storyline” rhetoric before, here is a simple question, have you ever seen someone strung up like a Christmas turkey in a Tomb Raider game before? Didn’t think so. Based on the few screens below it looks like things are not going Lara’s way and she has run afoul of some sort of death cult. Please let them have a bald leader that chants “Kali Ma, Kali Ma.” But even up against these nasty foes Lara has expanded her arsenal from the standard handgun to include a bow and arrow, ice climbing axe, and a machete. While she’s not packing an arsenal, changing up Lara items certainly offers some interesting gameplay potential. While no release date has been announced it is expected that we will once again get to raid tombs with our favorite female icon sometime this year.
