Shadow of the Tomb Raider  

Here are some further details on what the game will feature.

I'll reiterate what I mentioned in my previous post: Lara Croft has always been a constant throughout my life. I was introduced to Tomb Raider during elementary school (Tomb Raider II being the first game I played of that franchise) and I absolutely fell in love with everything about it. Lara is an action heroine that was kind of unheard at that time, and even though I was quite young I knew that I had never seen a woman be the main character in a video game in that way before, so she was quite formative for me. I mean, she's basically the female equivalent to Indiana Jones, another character I grew up with and loved, so that helped immensely. The fact that Lara Croft has continued to be the face of this franchise – which has transcended beyond just the video games – is truly astounding and just shows how iconic she is. I get excited for anything involving Lara Croft as a character, seeing her story grow and expand. I absolutely love her, and will continue to follow whatever the future brings for the Tomb Raider multi-media franchise.

If you haven't played Tomb Raider, particularly these reboot games, I highly recommend it.

It looks interesting. I don't play, but this might get turned into a movie at some point. :-)

It's a possibility. I'm hoping that with the new Tomb Raider movie with Alicia Vikander, that will start its own movie franchise that kind of mirrors the reboot games in a way. Granted they did alter some things surrounding the plot for the movie to work as its own thing while still maintaining Lara's origins, so what Lara has gone through in the games might not be what happens in the possible future films, but I can see them probably going down this line.

I'm just so down with anything Lara Croft, really. :)

I'm just seeing this post! Baaad friend, bad friend!

Can't wait to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider. It looks amazing, just like the previous two in the reboot :D Looks like Lara's fully morphed into the tomb raider, right? It's going to be amazing, and being able to see how everything started... we're so lucky! :)

By the way... it's May. When are they going to announce Alicia Vikander's sequel!? *fingers crossed* The movie was soooo good, it deserves at least one more.

I'm so hyped for this, like just even based off this trailer alone everything looks so good, the graphics, the ferociousness of Lara, just everything. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.

I'm hoping that there's a sequel. I know that it didn't do so well in the US (unfortunately), but it did very well internationally, which hopefully that will be enough to warrant a sequel and possible franchise. Because c'mon, it's Tomb Raider! How can there not be more of this franchise in any medium?
