Rise of the Tomb Raider Takes Lara to Siberia as She Searches for the Secrets of Immortality

February 3, 2015Written by Jason Dunning

Launching this fall on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Rise of the Tomb Raider is Game Informer’s cover story for the March 2015, where it’ll be given a 12-page feature.

We’ll have to wait until a little later today/tomorrow to see if any interesting details about Rise of the Tomb Raider surface, but for now, Game Informer’s new description of the game reveals that it takes Lara to Siberia:

After the events on Yamatai, the young archeologist has grown into a capable adventure seeker, and Rise of the Tomb Raider will send Lara to the frozen wilds of Siberia on a hunt for the lost secrets of immortality. Now Lara will have to hunt and craft new survival gear in order to take on larger puzzle tombs and a deadly new enemy, a secret society that has been lying in the shadows since the last game.

If you’re curious, here’s the description that’s been used for the past few months:

In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider. Featuring epic, high-octane action moments, Rise of the Tomb Raider will take gamers to multiple locations around the world filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth. In addition, after hearing the cry from fans loud and clear, the game will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in the franchise’s gritty Survival-Action style.

We still don’t know if Rise of the Tomb Raider will come to PlayStation, but developer Crystal Dynamics hasn’t completely ruled it out.
