A new Tomb Raider game has been announced by Square Enix. The game, simply called Tomb Raider (A Survivor Is Born), will be a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise and will be relased for PC, PS3 and XBOX360.
A couple months ago we reported that a new Tomb Raider game was on its way. However, at the time it was believed that the game was actually the new Tomb Raider action-adventure “Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light”. As it turns out, all the infos that were released back then were taken directly from the new Tomb Raider game! So make sure to read this

The Young Lara:
Story Background Infos
- Lara is 21 in this game
- It’s not only a reboot of the franchise but a reboot of the entire brand. As a result there will be no “real” Lara model this time
- They’re doing performance capturing with this game
- There are brutal deaths in the game this time. One is described as a deranged man stabbing Lara in the chest and then closing her eyes after she’s dead. Another includes a boulder falling on her leg to trap her before another falls and crushes her head
- Crystal Dynamics won’t talk specifics on weapons but concept art shows a bow, shotgun and pistol
- The lock on targeting system is gone and it now has a free aim system.

Possible Release Date
So far no release date has been announced. However, the development started this year, so we might get a release date soonish. Possibly very late 2011 or 2012.
So far, there are a couple subtitles we’ve come across:
- A Survivor Is Born
- Lara Croft Reborn
However, Square Enix only put a trademark on Tomb Raider “A Survivor Is Born”. So, we can safely assume that it will be the official title of the new Tomb Raider game.
Tomb Raider 9 or 10?
Some people say this is Tomb Raider 10 and Tomb Raider 9 was Tomb Raider: The Guardian of Light. However, if you really have to put a number after the name, it’s not 10 or X. Actually, even 9 would be inappropiate.
