08 January 2018Alicia Vikander Teases Tomb Raider "Surprises" at 2018 Golden Globes
Alicia Vikander just gave moviegoers a big reason to celebrate the upcoming Tomb Raidermovie.
While appearing at the 2018 Golden Globes Sunday night, the actress stopped by Live From the Red Carpet where she couldn't help but tease what's to come in the blockbuster.
"This is much more an origins story. So this is kind of the story to see her becoming the very famous and well known action hero that we know her to be," Alicia shared with Giuliana Rancic. "I think it's going to be a lot of new elements and surprises for the fans too who already know the story very well."
The actress would also confirm that she has yet to meet Angelina Jolie.
But because the original Tomb Raider is also serving as a presenter tonight, this may be the night to make dreams come true.

Alicia Vikander will be picking up a bow and arrow to play Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider movie reboot next year, but she's very aware that she's not the first actress to take on the role of the iconic video game character.
Talking to our sister publication Total Film magazine, Vikander talked about Angelina Jolie's version and how her Lara Croft will differ. “[Angelina] made that an iconic role,” says Vikander. “I knew we wouldn’t be able to redo that, and that’s not what we’re trying to do either. We go back to the beginning, and tell the origin story.”

HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners can now experience the “Blood Ties” single-player story chapter through the eyes of Lara Croft on SteamVR.

SteamVR allows you to stand in the Manor’s main hall, explore Lord Croft’s office, and discover memories long thought lost in the lower basement levels of the home of Lara’s youth. Explore Lara’s childhood home in VR and uncover a Croft family mystery that will change her life forever.

Owners of Rise of the Tomb Raider standard edition can purchase the standalone version of Blood Ties, which is included in the 20 Year Celebration pack DLC, or purchase the season pass.
27 November 2017Reboot sells 11 million while Rise nears 7 million sales
The Tomb Raider reboot in 2013 was pretty successful, but it famously failed to meet Square Enix’s internal sales targets, despite pushing over 3.4 million units in its early days and going on to become the best-selling game in series history. You might say that the publisher’s expectations for the game were a bit unrealistic, and that’s something CEO Yosuke Matsuda is willing to admit.
Matsuda replaced previous Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada in 2013 amid a major slump for the company. It seems they were looking for Tomb Raider to reverse the course in a way that a single game could scarcely be capable of. “Looking back on that now, I think the target we set for ourselves was extremely high,” Matsuda tells GamesIndustry.biz.
“I say this with the benefit of hindsight now,” continues Matsuda, “but at the time our numbers leading up to the release of Tomb Raider had been very poor and I think our people were probably banking on that and wondering how much it was going to help our final earnings. In the end, it didn't quite sell as much as we had anticipated.”
Square Enix’s slate of Western franchises has certainly seemed troubled over the past few years, with apparently unrealistic expectations for Tomb Raider and a mixed reception for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, not to mention their decision to let go of both Hitman and developers IO Interactive. But in this same interview, Matsuda reiterates the company’s commitment to both Tomb Raider and Deus Ex, even if their recent deal with Marvel is currently taking precedence.

22 October 2017Tomb Raider’s Creative Director Leaves Crystal Dynamics
The Tomb Raider franchise has come a long way over the past few years, thanks to the awesome 2013 reboot, as well as the 2015 adventure Rise of the Tomb Raider that followed shortly thereafter. Now, while we’re questioning the future of the franchise, Crystal Dynamic has lost one of its key team members.
Ian Milham, who served on Crystal Dynamics as the creative director for the series, has departed to go work on a new adventure, according to his Twitter page.
“Hi friends!” he noted. “An announcement: last week was my last at Crystal Dynamics, I’ve joined old friends at @OutpostGamesInc! I’m now Creative Director on @playsosgame! I’m in love with the potential and freshness of it.”
He also added, “Don’t infer anything about CD or Tomb Raider based on this. They’ve been awesome and people should be very excited by what’s coming. This was a chance to team up with old friends again on something exciting (and cut my commute from an hour to 10 minutes).”
22 October 2017Tomb Raider Suite Project Wraps Up
So that's a wrap at Abbey Road. I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the production staff involved with the recording of The Tomb Raider Suite, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Metro Voices. Everyone did a fantastic job and it was a truly magical experience to be surrounded by such an incredible group of professionals. Thank you also to all the fans who attended to share this experience with me and of course to our sponsors who have been more than generous with their support for the project. Finally I would like to thank Abbey Road for their hospitality and professionalism during the recording. I sincerely hope I can return to their studios again some day soon. I still haven't quite 'landed' after this extraordinary experience. Some much needed sleep is in order. Thank you once again everyone for making this happen. Will be posting further updates soon once I've had a chance to recuperate.
