The Adventure of Lara Croft

Tomb Raider casts you as a young Lara Croft, ship-wrecked on the mysterious island of Yamati. Alone, you set out to search for your missing friends, whom you soon discover are all being hunted by a malevolent cult.

Scavenging weapons and supplies to help keep yourself alive is your first priority. Then, you’ll need to fight the cult, save your pals, and escape the deadly island - a tall order indeed when you consider you start out with little more than your wits.

Well, that’s not entirely true: You also have Lara’s amazing athletic prowess at your fingertips. So expect to do more than your fair share of hazardous climbing, jumping and spelunking, as you seek out the best path to overcome deadly enemies and environmental obstacles. More often than not, there is more than one way to get the job done.

Not Your Father’s Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider showcases Lara Croft at her very best, with a heavy focus on survival against overwhelming odds while being pushed to your absolute physical limits - and beyond. And, since this is Tomb Raider, you can also expect to discover the odd tomb or two to explore.

Praised by critics for its fresh narrative and sympathetic portrayal of an inexperienced Lara Croft encountering danger for the first time, Tomb Raider is also no slouch in the technical department. The lush island environments are impressively rendered with stunning lighting effects, and the character models are exquisitely detailed with smooth animations.

Can you transform Lara into the confident, hardened explorer we’ve come to know and love?
