New Tomb Raider Prequel Video Game - Images

Holy crap, it looks like Lara Croft it going to take a severe battering in the new Tomb Raider prequel game coming soon from Crystal Dynamics!

Synopsis and info:

After a brutal storm destroys the boat she was traveling on, a frightened young woman is left washed ashore on an unknown beach. On her own but not alone she has only one goal, to survive'

Here begins the first adventure for a young and inexperienced Lara Croft in a story which charts the journey of an ordinary woman who finds out just how far she must go in order to stay alive.

•Lara will be 21 in this game (it's a prequel as stated).

•There will be "brutal" death traps, including a "deranged" man stabbing Lara in the chest and a boulder trap that crushes her head!

•Concept art shows a bow, shotgun and pistol as Lara's main weapons.

•Aiming is now free and not locked onto targets.

•The linear paths are gone, with Crystal Dynamics saying the player "can literally go any direction” and “carve [their] own way to the finish line."

•There are "base camps" in the game which act as areas to combine items and improve skills, and also unlock fast traveling.

•You’ll need food and water to survive.

Sounds good and from the pics below it looks pretty stunning too! Click on each pic for a bigger version.
