It’s no secret that gaming websites were all buzzing about the new Tomb Raider. The game was featured in several gaming magazines and is scheduled for release in the autumn of 2012 for Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
As you can see in the picture, Lara Croft doesn’t look like she did back in 1996 and actually, according to the new information released by Crystal Dynamics, the developers who took the reins in 2006, no she is not.

This new vision of Lara Croft is a more vulnerable and human character than what we’re all use to. According to Spanish magazine Hobby Consolas, Lara Croft will bleed and suffer as she fights to survive. The game is being developed using motion capture technology, which was used in the development of the critically acclaimed crime/thriller video game Heavy Rain), which will allow players to see the pain, anguish, and fear on Lara Croft’s face.

If you’re still expecting this game to be anything like the originals, don’t you’ll just be horribly disappointed or pissed when this new game finally hits stores. This is a complete reboot, whereas the last reboot still held some ties to the past this one will not. It not only reimagines Lara Croft, who will have very little in common with her previous incarnations, but also the game itself. The developers decided to start completely from scratch, and the storyline of this new game will serve as the new background story for the character.
