Another Lara Croft Makeover

Gaming's most famous heroine is getting another facelift in her next adventure, as Square Enix is redefining Lara Croft in her next game, simply titled "Tomb Raider."

This has been a tumultuous generation for the female adventurer Lara Croft. Never mind the fact that her franchise has been usurped by Nathan Drake and the Uncharted franchise--her previous two games (Tomb Raider: Underworld & Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light) have rebuilt the heroine and her universe, respectively.

This morning brought news of Lara Croft's next reinvention, as Game Informer revealed that the adventurer will be reinvented in her next game. Telling readers "Forget what you know about Lara Croft. As of today, all that is changing," Game Informer is promising additional details in the coming weeks, but has revealed a few tidbits today, including the continued development from Crystal Dynamics and the fact that the game will be an origin story filled with "physical and emotional trauma."

Just once, it'd be nice to have an origin story that doesn't involve trauma. Below are the first images from Game Informer for Tomb Raider.
