Tomb Raider sequel announced at E3.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is scheduled for a 2015 release.

Rise of the Tomb Raider has been confirmed as the next game in the famed Tomb Raider series and Lara Croft's next step in becoming who she was meant to be.

Lara Croft had a rough go of it in the Tomb Raider reboot that came out last year—rough enough to land her in therapy, suffering from flashbacks and other psychological trauma. Her therapist worries that she's fallen into a "mental trap," from which she may never escape. But there's another possibility, too: Through our struggles, as she puts it herself, "We become who we're meant to be."

There's no gameplay in the new trailer--it's clearly all about the narrative, as Lara continues to evolve into the character we've grown familiar with over the past decade and change. She's still clearly not the cavalier heroine of the franchise's early days, but Rise of the Tomb Raider looks like it will be a big step in that direction.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is slated for the 2015 holiday season, and our fingers are crossed for a multiplatform launch.

Can't wait!

yes I am excited for this! I want Lara to pick up her pistols though I am nhf the bow and arrow bs
punishermax 10th-Jun-2014 02:58 am (UTC)
hdu bow and arrow was the best weapon in that game
giant_totoro 10th-Jun-2014 03:03 am (UTC)

pistols are more iconic but bow was amazing

the bow and arrow was so good, but they need to bring back the two pistols and stop trying to make me actually kill tons of motherfuckers with 15 different guns
finchburg 10th-Jun-2014 02:58 am (UTC)
I shouldn't have gotten excited, because we still don't have heists, but GTAV on PS4 in all that lovely 1080p made me nearly pee my pants.
brownxeyedxdork 10th-Jun-2014 03:00 am (UTC)
and the fact that we could import our saves from the PS3 and the 360 to the PS4 version surprised the hell out of me.

Yes if that is actually true that I can bring my 360 char to PS4 I am so tempted to get this game again.
stranglerwcandy 10th-Jun-2014 03:10 am (UTC)
But Idg how anyone could justify buying it again...I'd understand if one had never played the game, but it hasn't even been a year since it was released...

I hope the story is better than the last one.
It could have been so much better if they had an uncharted-like plot
prettywitch 10th-Jun-2014 03:11 am (UTC)
Speaking of Uncharted :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD
bulastar 10th-Jun-2014 02:59 am (UTC)
The Grim Fandango remaster was the only thing that got me excited
beemo 10th-Jun-2014 03:05 am (UTC)
i'm so psyched. i didn't play it in the 90s
bulastar 10th-Jun-2014 03:21 am (UTC)
It's such a great game :)

I hope they remaster Day of the Tentacle next

boweeko 10th-Jun-2014 03:01 am (UTC)
I'm still just waiting for a Fallout 4 announcement though :(
likegunfire 10th-Jun-2014 03:05 am (UTC)
I don't think it's coming anytime soon :(
boweeko 10th-Jun-2014 03:06 am (UTC)

prettywitch 10th-Jun-2014 03:11 am (UTC)

ferelden 10th-Jun-2014 03:12 am (UTC)
Stahp. I need Bethesda to tell me where Skyrim VI is going to be. I'm hoping for Elsweyr. My Fem!Archer Nord needs to go to the realm of the kitty people tbh.
vickileekx 10th-Jun-2014 03:47 am (UTC)
ikr. we'll be saying the same thing next year tbh
giant_totoro 10th-Jun-2014 03:48 am (UTC)

brownxeyedxdork 10th-Jun-2014 03:02 am (UTC)
Tomb Raider 2 and Uncharted 4 announcements on the same day?

giant_totoro 10th-Jun-2014 03:02 am (UTC)
I did not expect this at all, idk why. I can't wait for my queen to return!!
brownxeyedxdork 10th-Jun-2014 03:17 am (UTC)
I wasn't expecting for it to come out so soon tbh.
I thought we were going to have another Mirror's Edge situation where there were rumors about a sequel but we never hear anything concrete.
mammary_glands 10th-Jun-2014 03:05 am (UTC)
i need a GTA V on PS4 post. i'm crying rn.
boweeko 10th-Jun-2014 03:07 am (UTC)
it looked so beautiful but idk if I can justify paying money for a game I already bought
finchburg 10th-Jun-2014 03:11 am (UTC)
When I realized it was GTAV I screamed a little.
mammary_glands 10th-Jun-2014 03:13 am (UTC)
yall think im kidding but there were real thug tears in my eyes

i can't wait to double dip. it will be well worth it for the beauty alone, plus i play the shit out of it anyway. it'll be fun to have a slightly new spin on things with a new console experience.
geraldine_blank 10th-Jun-2014 03:07 am (UTC)

showing up to your fave's funeral like

did anybody watch the Sony or XBox conferences? I missed them

punishermax 10th-Jun-2014 03:10 am (UTC)
Xbox conference was awful as fuck. It was just them desperatly backpedaling from 2013
prettywitch 10th-Jun-2014 03:12 am (UTC)
it was a lot better than that snooze fest that was the sony conference. ubisoft had the best one tbh.
harlem_nocturne 10th-Jun-2014 03:23 am (UTC)
Ugh the first Dead Island was such a bust.

(I played mad heavy during that save bug BS. Ruined my whole experience.)
bananasnrum 10th-Jun-2014 03:09 am (UTC)
no here for katniss croft.
timepassedyouby 10th-Jun-2014 03:09 am (UTC)
I've been yelling about this since they announced it!!! God, I am so pumped. And they're releasing a sequel to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, too. This is too much.
ferelden 10th-Jun-2014 03:10 am (UTC)
