A Survivor is Born When the first ever Tomb Raider game launched in 1996, it was a revolution. With groundbreaking graphics, gameplay, and story, it changed the way that video games were played and developed forever. Fronting the cultural assault on the world was the central character, Lara Croft. She quickly became the most recognized and celebrated female action heroine in the world and an icon for the video games industry. This newest rendition of Tomb Raider is a modern reinterpretation of the core tenets that made Lara an icon. Key Game Features ? Smart / Resourceful Lara ? Lara must use her brawn and her brains to overcome an impossible situation. The player must guide Lara through physics puzzles, challenging environments, and a high-octane story to overcome a harrowing situation and make it off of the island alive. ? Combat - Tomb Raider is pushing the action genre forward with visceral third-person combat and a deep weapon and gear upgrade system that Lara will have to strategically employ to overcome increasingly difficult enemies and environments. If you like the Uncharted or Batman Arkham franchises, Tomb Raider?s offering will compare favorably to these high quality experiences, but with a unique Survival Action twist. ? Dynamic Traversal - It wouldn?t be Tomb Raider without certain signature elements. In addition to platforming, Lara will have to explore large areas to earn experience points that will upgrade her weapons and gear. One of the key elements of dynamic traversal is the gear gating gameplay loop: over the course of the game, Lara will continually improve her gear and will be able to reach previously inaccessible locations that will allow her to upgrade her gear and weapons even further. ?
