The new look Lara Croft has been kicking-arse on consoles for about a fortnight now and the reboot Tomb Raider has been topping the charts with over one-million gamers fighting for the heroine’s survival in the gritty new vision of the familiar franchise on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
With the game finally launched (after a little delay) players are already clawing for more but developer Crystal Dynamics has somewhat disappointingly stated this week that there is currently no intention to release single-player downloadable content for the 2013 Tomb Raider game. However there have now been multiplayer modes and maps launched with more arriving very soon for both PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms and we may not have to wait too long for more one-on-one time with Miss Croft.
It’s been reported that publisher Square Enix Europe has already registered a trademark on the name ‘Lara Croft: Reflections’ and this is believed to relate to some comments made previously by developers Crystal Dynamics which referred to taking Lara on ‘new adventures’ and future games that would be focused on what she has been shaped into following her character’s challenges and ordeals in the recently released origin story.
The latest Tomb Raider offers a realistic re-telling of the young Lara Croft’s story and its cinematic new style and initially criticised mature tone is winning over gamers 17 years after the original title launched. We’re definitely keen for more!
