Crystal Dynamics' recent Tomb Raider reboot hit all the right notes. It was a clear success in reinvigorating Lara Croft for a new generation of gamers, so it's nice to see Square Enix announce the follow up, which is titled Rise of the Tomb Raider. While we don't know much as far as story details, here's a snippet from the press release about her upcoming adventure.
"In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. Obsessed by what she has seen, Lara is now threatened by a shadow organization intent on killing her for what she knows. She is pushed to her physical and mental limits as she seeks the truth buried deep within the tombs of an ancient world. To unravel the mystery of a Lost City, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider. Featuring the return of Camilla Luddington as Lara Croft, and Rhianna Pratchett crafting the story, Rise of the Tomb Raider will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015."
You can see the teaser trailer released for E3 above. If you've been reading the Tomb Raider comic by Gail Simone (by Dark Horse Comics), this will probably sound familiar to you, as it acts as a bridge between the two games. The sequel will be released during the holiday window of 2015, so if you haven't played the first one already, I suggest doing so, as it's a truly wonderful game.
