Rise of the Tomb Raider has inspired a fan-made prequel video series helmed by actor, writer and director Stephen Lunsford.


Lunsford, who plays Matt on Teen Wolf and more pertinently wrote the Tomb Raider Facts video series, announced the series on both Twitter and Instagram.

His original posts have since been deleted, as there was some confusion as to the nature of the project. In follow-up posts, Lunsford stressed that the project is not an official product – although Crystal Dynamics is helping out.

“This is not an officially licensed Tomb Raider production. This is currently a unofficial production created by fans for the fans of the Tomb Raider franchise,” he said.

“We are however working with Crystal Dynamics to bring the most accurate representation of the character and the Tomb Raider universe. Looking to film this May. Will update soon.”

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015, although Microsoft’s exclusivity deal won’t last forever.
