The Birth Of A Legend

Learn what it takes to survive, in an all new in-depth trailer showcasing the rocky beginnings of Lara Croft.

The new Tomb Raider re-imagining has had a few hurdles to overcome, and has stirred up quiet a bit of controversy for itself yet it seems the developers are looking to bring the focus back to the story and game itself. In a new trailer series for the rebirth of Lara Croft and her career, the game is laid bare and given an extensive in-depth look at how the game will function.

What we are presented with is a rather long explanation of the game and its core mechanics, though I must confess I am most intrigued by the base camp system and the more RPG nature the game seems to be focusing on. Where as turmoil over the treatment of Lara within other trailers was decried as outright rape, this new trailer does a better job of showcasing a lost adventurer out of their depth and doing what is necessary to survive. While the narrator can be a bit droning for my tastes, I personally think the trailer is very well executed and brings the focus back to the story while highlighting the gameplay.

So tell us, what do you guys think of both the trailer and this new reboot to the Tomb Raider series? For me personally the trailer has brought Tomb Raider back to my must try list.
