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.

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • 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.

      I’m scared that it will just be too much like other games, that it will ruin the beautiful aspects of the original. I’ve played them all, and for the most part it feels like the newest ones didn’t feel like Tomb Raider anymore. So I worry this new Lara will only bear her name, and nothing more… =( I would hope I don’t feel that way, but the original had such an impact, and I just don’t think I have room in my heart for more pointless revisions and reboots. I know I’ll try it anyway. I hope I like it.
