Lara Croft has been through many adventures and I have played them all but these titles have seen a fully rounded Tomb Raider in full force. Now it seems developer Crystal Dynamics want to bring us Lady Croft’s early adventures and show how she became began the journey that placed her firmly in the lead group of gaming Icons.
Square Enix brought a great deal of coverage to E3 from some of the screenshots you can see to the amazing Crossroads Trailer. These images show the gritty nature of the new character but also highlight the characters innocence and vulnerability.
From the footage we have seen up to date the developers seem to be pushing for a realistic style of game play that actually draws you in to the characters psyche as she is forced to battle for her life in a number of scenarios. This kind of storytelling and character development is hopefully embraced throughout the game and if it is then we can really look forward to this new gritty edition to the Tomb Raider Series.
