Game Informer has today published the first screenshots from the forthcoming new Tomb Raider game, which seems to be all about taking Lara back to her roots. Crystal Dynamics has promised that fans will be seeing a tougher, grittier, more realistic Lara this time around, and the new batch of screenshots would certainly seem to bear that out. We can see a lot of blood and bandages and Lara wincing in pain and gritting her teeth as she falls heavily in one shot, and in another she appears to be trussed up in ropes and bandages and hanging upside down. Wonder how she’s going to get out of that predicament?!
The dusty, cobwebby tombs look full of atmosphere and foreboding, making the treasures that Lara uncovers seem even more dazzling in contrast. Take a peek at these very early screenshots courtesy of Game Informer, and start getting excited about what’s to come with this total reimaging of the Tomb Raider universe!
