E3 2014 | Rise of the Tomb Raider Announced, Coming Holiday 2015

Crystal Dynamics announced their sequel to the 2013 hit Tomb Raider at Microsoft’s E3 presser today.

In Tomb Raider, we saw Lara Croft become a survivor and get a look at a deeper, secret world. In her new adventure, Lara will use her survival skills, learn to trust new friends and accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.

“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix. “Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty Survival-Action style.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider is slated to hit shelves around the end of 2015. No platforms have been announced but it’s a fair bet to assume it’ll be on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, at least.
