Ahead of E3 2012 next week, Square Enix
and Crystal Dynamics
have released a new, lengthy trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider
; which will act as a reboot for the series. The E3 trailer is the most exciting thus far with a wide variety of footage from Lara acquiring her bow to surviving multiple near-death encounters. Past games in the series were solid, but were becoming stale after their close release periods and uninspired gameplay. The trailer contains solid evidence that Lara Croft fans are in for a treat when the game is scheduled to launch on March 5, 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
