VIDEO GAMES: E3 Gameplay Demo Walkthrough For TOMB RAIDER Revealed

Crystal Dynamics studio head Darrell Gallagher and game director Daniel Bisson have revealed a fantastic gameplay demo of Tomb Raider at E3 and you can check it out in full right here. Looks like Uncharted might just have some new competition.

After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was travelling on, a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach. On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive. Here begins the first adventure for a young and inexperienced Lara Croft in a story which charts the journey of an ordinary woman who finds out just how far she must go in order to stay alive.

Tomb Raider (developed by Crystal Dynamic and published by Square Enix;) is set to be released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Mac OS X in the first quarter of 2013.

South Park was the best part of the entire XBOX conference...

Looks good, I prefer her without long pants though :(

I like the more cinematic feeling that new games have but I don't like the effect of stuff getting on the "screen" like water and dirt etc. Esp when it is in third person, that does not even make sense. Oh well.

This is "Tomb Raider: Hunter Games Edition" right?

@Gaston: This is the young Lara Croft, sorry dude. She probably can't afford a boob job until she finds more treasures :P

Only good things in the Microsoft Conference: Halo 4, Splinter Cell, Tomb Raider...South park was interesting...

Looks great to me.

This is young Lara so her boobs havent evolved yet but i can deal with that.

Uncharted and this makes me hope someone would start making games about adventures of Indiana Jones. The times he was fighting against nazis and evil cults.
There is so many treasures he could be hunting and that how he could see Harrison playing Indy when he was at his best.

TheIrishAvenger@ They should make new South Park movie. I think they could do wonders with that. The show is still on its prime.

I would love to see Evangeline Lilly play this version of Lara!

Gusto @ Angelina Jolie was incredible as miss croft in the movie adaption

the gameplay preview seems really good :) but next year is too far...but this will be on my list and I will certainly enjoy playing this game. Croft is different, but in a good way and I really like the difference between this and the older games (I've only played Legend and the first one and they were fantastic) . And just like Uncharted, it has remarkable, amazing and realistic atmosphere! So...Yeah! Bring it!

The gameplay looks fantastic. Finally, an actual cover system in a Tomb Raider game.

I'm liking the more realistic approach to this too.

I don't think we will being seeing any supernatural enemies this time around.

@Marvel87 It is going to have an M rating because of the amount of blood. It's not going to be like Gears of Wars though.

And all the Halo games are rated M as well. I was worried this got an M rating because they were trying to make this like a survival horror series like the RE games. The originally concept for this game was much darker. That doesn't fit Tomb Raider though. The series works better as an action/adventure game.

This looks Awesome! @weneedrevelation lol i was thinking the same thing, she should be dead. lol They are really abusing lara allot in this game, i really digging the gritty, realistic approach.

davidwiz - 6/4/2012, 6:40 PM

at the tail end of that (wonderful) gameclip, there was (NEW?) footage from a portal game!


anybody know anything about that footage?

felixxx - 6/4/2012, 10:41 PM
This looks a hell of a lot better than the older ones. A female Drake almost. Might have to check this one out.
mgeoff88 - 6/4/2012, 11:41 PM
@Marvel87 Yes, this game was more along the lines of a survival horror game when it was first announced.

It went through a drastic change though. This is more in the vein of Uncharted now. It's an action/adventure survival simulator game now, more or less.

This is some concept art back when it was planned to be a full on survival horror game:

Needless to say, I'm very glad they changed it. The series would've lost what the original games were all about. This new direction is a perfect way to go about the rebooted Tomb Raider video game series.

LOVED the Anniversary/Legend/Underworld Trilogy! Bit annoyed at a reboot but this looks incredible! Never played Uncharted so maybe I can finally experience what everyone's talking about!
