One of the biggest announcements to come out during Microsoft’s E3 press conference this morning was the announcement of Rise of the Tomb Raider, a sequel to 2013’s critical success Tomb Raider. Here is a quote from the press release:
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix. “Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty Survival-Action style.”
Taking place after the events of the first game, players will reprise the role of Lara Croft, now a bit older and world-weary after the harrowing events of the original game. I, personally cannot wait for this game, but it’s still a long wait until winter of 2015. This announcement trailer will have to do for now.
