The Final Hours of Tomb Raider Continues its Behind the Scenes Exploration of Telling Lara's Origin Story
In continuation of Crystal Dynamics' The Final Hours video documentary about its Tomb Raider reinvention, the devs talk in greater detail about just how much of an ambitious project it is to breath new life into the precociously young Lara Croft. A few lucky fans got to toy with a playable build of the game at Comic-Con 2012, which Crystal Dynamics' Karl Stewart notes as a slightly nerve-wracking experience considering its the first time the game gets showed off to the public. Tomb Raider lead writer Rhianna Pratchett also shares some insight into creating the identity of Lara, who she sees as a girl who's shaken to her very core as she struggles to make sense of the impossible odds that are thrown against her. We still have some very long months to wait before we get to play as the beautiful (but as-yet inexperienced) adventurer, but you'll also get the chance to nab some cool bonuses such as an in-game skin, an art book and a digital copy of the Final Hours series for your Kindle Fire, if you pre-order on Amazon.
