The game wasn’t dated but publisher Square Enix has published a statement from Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Studios that reads, “With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic.

“Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before.

“Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty survival-action style.”

Actor Camilla Luddington will reprise her role as Lara Croft, and the plot will be written by author Rhianna Pratchett.
