Tomb Raider is an appropriately named reboot for one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time. There’s no need for a suffix – after four previous Tomb Raider games developed by Crystal Dynamics, it seems that the time has come for a fresh start and a reconstructed origin story for the most well-loved and instantly recognisable female video game character in history. The year is 2013 and Lara Croft has finally become relevant again. Hot pants and dual pistols have been replaced by anguish, pain, a bow… and a pickaxe. From the wreckage of the ship Endurance, a survivor is born.
