More details on the upcoming Tomb Raider title currently in development at Crystal Dynamics. Amazon Games has announced a partnership agreement in which it will serve as publisher for the new multiplatform Tomb Raider game, "providing full support and publishing the game globally."
Amazon Games VP Christoph Hartmann said in a statement: "Tomb Raider is one of the most beloved IPs in entertainment history. Amazon Games is committed to bringing players games of the highest quality, from the best developers, across all variety of platforms and genres, and we’re honored by the opportunity to work with this storied developer and franchise. Our team is incredibly excited about collaborating with the talented and visionary Crystal Dynamics team to bring the next chapter of Lara Croft’s saga to players around the world."
Crystal Dynamics confirmed the next Tomb Raider was in development using Unreal Engine 5 earlier this year. A few months later, leaked details of the game revealed Lara Croft would return to lead a younger generation of Tomb Raiders to ward off a mysterious cataclysm. Lara Croft's role is described more as one who protects dangerous artifacts rather than stealing them.
Today's press release confirms a few more details of the upcoming game. It's being described as the "biggest, most expansive" Tomb Raider game to date, featuring a single-player, narratively-driven adventure.
"It includes all the elements that have made Tomb Raider one of the most revered franchises in gaming," the statement continues, "giving players control of the confident and multidimensional hero Lara Croft in an environment that rewards exploration and creative pathfinding, with mind-bending puzzles to solve, and a wide variety of enemies to face and overcome."
The new Tomb Raider is still in early development, with more details to be disclosed at a later date.
