Game Informer shows off Tomb Raider re-reboot

Looks like Lara Croft is getting another reboot. Game Informer released the cover of their latest issue this morning showing off a markedly younger, dirtier and bloodier Lara Croft for the new game in the Tomb Raider franchise. This one is going to be called simply, Tomb Raider.

This will be the second time Lara has received a reboot, unless you count the recent Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network title, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light as a reboot. That game may have taken a huge step away from the normal gameplay we have come to associate with the Tomb Raider series, but it was meant to be the same Lara from the recent games. This Lara however, is a whole new woman, or from the sounds of it, young lady.

The issue has not hit shelves or mailboxes yet, so details are scarce, but we do know that the game features, "a younger and inexperienced Lara Croft [who] must endure both physical and emotional trauma to survive."

Sounds gritty and dark.
