I have to admit, I'm liking the new not-oversexed Lara.

E3 Gameplay Demo:

Fantastic.  Very cinematic and intense.  Looks inspired by Uncharted, which is funny since Uncharted was inspired by Tomb Raider.  [cue Elton John's Circle of Life]

Lara Croft was "losing relevance"

Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics decided to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise because heroine Lara Croft was starting to lose relevance, so says brand director Karl Stewart.

In a Rock Paper Shotgun interview, Stewart argued that gamers were struggling to relate to the invincible, infallible old Lara. Conversely, the revised take on the gaming icon will be more more grounded and accessible.

"I think Lara's a beloved character and Crystal has really enjoyed their time they've been able to spend with her," explained Stewart.

"We felt she was losing some relevance in the gaming world, that she was a little too hard and removed. We wanted to make her more approachable and relatable.

"I think she became an icon," he added. "When you do, you remove yourself from relatability. We wanted to bring her to a place where she didn’t have all those skills, she wasn’t perfect. The modern gamer can relate to that, they want a complex hero."

Stewart noted that another factor in the decision to go back to square one was that the studio had run out of new stories it could tell with the original Lara.

"I think Lara had done all the growing she could. We'd taken her to a great place, to somewhere she had some closure. There weren’t really many more stories we could have told. So we feel like with this new place we have fertile ground and there’s a lot of places we can go."

The last entry proper in the long-running adventure franchise was the sturdy Tomb Raider: Underworld back in 2008, with an excellent top down spin-off, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, hitting download services last year.

The new look Tomb Raider is scheduled to launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Autumn 2012.

I have to agree.  I'm looking forward to Lara 2.0.

Tomb Raider reboot delayed until 2013

The upcoming Tomb Raider reboot has been delayed until 2013, developer Crystal Dynamics has announced.

Tomb Raider will now launch during the first quarter of 2013 - sometime between January and March next year - instead of this autumn.

Crystal Dyanmics studio boss Darrell Gallagher explained that the extra time will be used to add polish to the game, which tells the tale of a young Lara Croft's adventuring origins.

"When Crystal Dynamics first set out to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there were two goals that we were extremely passionate about," Gallagher explained in a post on the official Eidos forums. "The first was to create a modern Tomb Raider game that would surprise and excite gamers. The second was to make this the best game of our careers, something we would be really proud to be a part of. We truly believe that we have something very special on our hands and we can't wait to share it with you.

"Our priority now is to make sure we fully deliver the very highest quality game.

"We're doing things that are completely new to Tomb Raider in this game and the additional development time will allow us to put the finishing touches into the game and polish it to a level that you deserve."

A single new screenshot was released to accompany the news, showing a tree-swinging Lara encountering a long-dead island inhabitant.

Yep it is a bit disappointing that it is delayed, but hopefully the delay will be worth it.
