Continuing with the news coming out of E3, the reboot of the Tomb Raider series has finally been given an announced release date.
The franchise will get a new beginning this upcoming spring when Tomb Raider is released to the public on March 5th, 2013. The game was originally scheduled for a fall 2012 release, but was pushed back some to give the game a final polishing to perfect the final product. The Tomb Raider series focuses on the adventures of sexy archaeologist Lara Croft and her international exploits. The redesigned Lara Croft and her new game will be going all the way back to the beginning of the franchise. The game will feature a new origin story for the popular character.
The game is expected to take a grittier approach to its play than previous incarnations. Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have a lot riding on the game. They are expecting the upcoming game to be “the best game of our careers,” they say.
The game will be released on X-Box 360, PS3, and PC.
