In case you hadn't heard, Lara Croft has a new home with Square-Enix and with it a complete franchise reboot, a new look, and a new origin. Sadly she won't be getting new gameplay as part of the deal.
or any apparently.
At least not as far as one can tell watching this new trailer.
A Square Enix trailer without gameplay!? stop the presses But boy does it look pretty! I dare say Lara's never looked better.
Those pearly whites. That perfect skin. That smart new hair-do. The ethnic ambiguity. Even drenched in sea water, covered in mud, and bleeding from head to toe Ms. Croft is looking pretty flawless these days. Hopefully the gameplay, whenever we get to see it, won't look too shabby by comparison.
The series reboot from developer Crystal Dynamics, titled simply Tomb Raider, will make its big debut at E3 next week and will see release Fall 2012.
Plenty of time to add some gameplay.
Or at least to photoshop in some fake HUDs.
