In early December, Square Enix announced that a new origins Tomb Raider game would be coming from from Redwood City-based studio Crystal Dynamics. The game was described as follows:
‘After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was traveling on, a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach. On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive’
Here begins the first adventure for a young and inexperienced Lara Croft in a story which charts the journey of an ordinary woman who finds out just how far she must go in order to stay alive.
