Well, it's *kind* of a rebot. Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have revealed they're taking Lara Croft back to her roots; to a time when she wasn't the acrobatic gun-slinger we all know and love, but rather a scared and inexperienced young woman, thrust into a life or death situation after surviving a ship wreck and being washed ashore on an unknown beach.

“Forget everything you know about Tomb Raider, we are exploring things that have never been done before in this game,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio, Crystal Dynamics via press release. “This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other.”

Unfortunately the only images available are exclusive to Game Informer, but you can have a look at their teaser cover on the official site. No other details have been revealed.

Here's Square-Enix's official press release nothing extra here though.

That "Forget everything you know about Tomb Raider, we are exploring things that have never been done before in this game" part seems a bit gay though. Pretty sure one of the older Core Design Tomb Raider games already featured teenage Lara (The Last Revelation I think it was).

Still, Crystal have done decent job with the rebooting so far, so if they want to give her a completely new backstory I say go for it. Hopefully though, they're learning bits and pieces from their competitors like Uncharted and this won't just be more of the same.

I'm getting a bit tired of hearing about all these reboot titles.

Is the gaming industry all out of fresh ideas?

gameinformer always has awesome covers.

They better make this game really good because Uncharted 3 is nearly to be released - and it's referencing the Seven Pillars of Wisdom - about Lawrence of Arabia.

As for next Tomb Raider, hope they can sort and make control lay-out more intuitive. Surely this feature is the game's greatest weakness.

The last game (underworld?) had s***** animations which turned me off the most. Controls seemed fine to me.
