As much as I love the sound of my own voice, I’m going to let Crystal Dynamics do most of the talking this time around. The official Square Enix YouTube channel has released a new gameplay walkthrough for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The video features Lara engaging in strategic, cover-based combat and navigating through the island terrain using her abilities and upgraded tools. Obviously, if you’re looking to go into the game fresh, the video contains Minor Spoilers:
For those who watched the walkthrough, note that Square Enix would like you to, “stay tuned for part two which looks at how enemies adjust their attacks depending on Lara’s approach to combat and an introduction to the Challenge Tombs.”
I’m pretty excited for the reboot. I was never really a huge fan of the Tomb Raider series growing up. It just wasn’t my style I guess, but I love the idea of starting fresh and getting to truly understand where the character comes from and witnessing her humble beginnings as an adventurer. It’s obviously a great jumping on point for folks like me. I guess I’m a sucker for training montages, but taking a young, sort of clueless girl, and turning her into the adventuring badass we all know Lara Croft will be piques my interest something fierce.
Tomb Raider is scheduled to release on March 5 for PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
