Lara Croft’s next big adventure from Crystal Dynamics and Amazon Games is still a few years away, but her next little adventure drops later this month. tomb Raider Reloaded, Lara’s first foray into the roguelike genre, will be released on February 14 – Ms. Croft’s birthday, according to the “Survivor” trilogy timeline – on Android and iOS devices. It will be available via Netflix at launch as part of the streaming service’s game offerings.
Tomb Raider Reloaded looks radically different from the action-adventure platformers that featured the classic Lara Croft seen in the mobile roguelike game. This is a top-down room-clearing exercise in looting tombs, featuring the expected obstacles: traps, animated rock monsters, yeti, bow-wielding guards, and Tyrannosaurus rex. The roguelike takes inspiration from familiar Tomb Raider locations for its levels, including Vilcabamba, the lost valley, and the folly of Saint Francis.
Developers Emerald City Games and CDE Entertainment (part of Crystal Dynamics/Eidos) say players can expect “ever-changing rooms” and gameplay modifiers such as XP boosts, weapons to craft, runes (which boost Lara’s stats), and cosmetic upgrades (like Lara’s). famous bomber jacket) to keep things fresh in the racing-based game. Returning to the voice of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider Reloaded is Keeley Hawes, the veteran actor who brought Lara to life in Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Lightand other games.
Tomb Raider Reloaded seems like a nudge in a bigger push to bring Lara Croft back to screens everywhere. Netflix has a Tomb Raider anime in the works, and Amazon is make a live-action series with the help of writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, known for her roles in Flea bag and the next IndianaJones and the dial of Fate. Then, of course, there’s the upcoming Tomb Raider video game, an Unreal Engine 5-powered sequel to Crystal Dynamics’ Survivor Trilogy, which ended with 2018’s. Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
