The new Tomb Raider is the origin story of the classic video character Lara Croft. A young Lara finds herself stranded on an island where she must learn to fight against its inhabitants to become the iconic heroin we know today.
This game is starting to sound a hell of a lot like Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed in the sense that it is also an open-world platform, has an implacably high standard of graphics and players are encouraged to salvage weapon parts to create their own methods of defence. Also, Lara gains experience by accomplishing side missions. As Lara accumulates XP she is able to learn different skills such as combat-counter moves.
Square-Enix and Xbox are hosting a 5 day tour around the country of Tomb Raider. The lock-in events are taking place at several GAME stores after-hours. However, it will be welcome news for some to hear that the lock-ins are taking place at a different set of stores to where they are usually held.
