Video: Tomb Raider boss shows us Lara Croft’s first kill
Global brand manager Karl Stewart walks us through a young Lara Croft’s first steps with her soon-to-be iconic bow, including the first time she is forced to kill to survive.
Although Lara Croft is best known for another weapon – twin pistols – her struggle to master the bow is all part of the survival origin story Crystal Dynamics wants to tell with this franchise reboot. How does a person develop from an everyday joe to a serial murderer? Having the snot kicked out of them at every turn while stranded on an island in the middle of nowhere, apparently.

Tomb Raider is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early 2013.
