Tomb Raider 2011 has been announced as a complete reboot of the storied action adventure series via a full reveal in next months issue of the American Game Informer magazine. The new game will be called, simply, “Tomb Raider”.

Developing the game will be Crystal Dymanics (now owned by Square Enix, who will publish) whom was behind all the recent games in the series, including: Tomb Raider: Legend (itself a reboot, back in 2006), Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Tomb Raider: Underworld and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

  • Although Legend was a reboot, it actually took the series “back to its roots” while updating the controls and graphics to modern day standards.

    This new game will retell the origin story and reboot it, but sounds like it will be more of a complete re-do of the series, which means it will probably retell every part of it in a different way than has been done in the past, including the look and story of Lara and who she is.

    Crystal Dynamics says this was done as not so much a choice but a necessity for the series. The new Lara will apparently be “culturally relevant”, although they will “break” her first… Offering players a “younger and inexperienced Lara Croft must endure both physical and emotional trauma to survive” according to Game Informer.

    Awesome. We are almost assured to see a new trailer for it at the SpikeTV Video Game Awards 2010 this Saturday.
