The new Tomb Raider game is actually quite a big deal for the gaming world: after a few years of hiatus, with only some spin-offs released, the series is going to come back in full form. Crystal Dynamics has been working on the series for quite some time now and for the latest game they have decided to completely reboot the series, shedding some light Lara Croft’s origins.
The game can’t be simply considered a reboot for plot reasons: the game will also play differently from the previous entry of the series, making the game closer to current gen action adventure games, with some features takes from current gen third person shooter games.
The game’s story has actually been hyped as being deep and involving, with some events influencing Lara’s growth into the woman we all know. For this reason alone it looks like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics won’t be releasing a playable demo for the game.
This information was actually confirmed with some posts on Crystal Dynamics official Twitter account: they have created such a personal story that they just don’t want to spoil it before the game officially launches. At the same time they don’t like the fact that a demo version would obviously leave players hanging: the story must be experienced wholly to comprehend it to the fullest.
Tomb Raider will launch on Pc, Xbox 360 and Ps3 on March 5.
