Early in Microsoft’s E3 2011 Press Conference, they turned the stage over to Crystal Dynamics, who used their time to show fans the first extended look of their upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. During the gameplay demo, the much younger Lara Croft has been captured by an angry tribe who have hung her upside down in a cave. Using a nearby torch, she cuts through the ropes and crashes onto the stone floor. The player must then perform a quick time event to eject a sharpened stone from her stomach. Yikes!
And it only gets more intense and “visceral” (according to Crystal Dynamics) from there.
Tomb Raider will be released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in Fall 2012.
