Square Enix Reveals Release Date, Gameplay Trailer for Tomb Raider

June 1, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

We haven’t seen much of Lara since her debut at last year’s Microsoft E3 press conference, but that is all about to change thanks to a brand new Tomb Raider gameplay trailer from Square Enix.

This action-adventure from Crystal Dynamics will explore the origins of our tomb raiding protagonist, chronicling the events that eventually make her the hardened hero that gamers have come to love. The development team is taking a very cinematic approach when it comes to gameplay, with gorgeous set pieces and incredibly tense action moments, both of which are shown off in the pre-E3 trailer below.

There’s no doubt that Lara’s upcoming adventure is going to be a dark and disturbing tale, and like most of you, I can’t wait. Last month, Square Enix announced that the game would be delayed to sometime in 2013, but now it looks like they’ve managed managed to pin down a firm release date, March 5th.

Keep it locked to PlayStation LifeStyle all next week to find out more about this ambitious Tomb Raider reboot and everything else PlayStation-related, as we’ll be on-site in LA covering every inch of the E3 show floor.
