That new Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics? Well it's called 'Tomb Raider' and yes there's a boat, a beach and a babe - a stranded Lara Croft.

We get a "young and inexperienced" Lara whose only goal is to survive. Crystal say "forget everything" we know of Tomb Raider, this is her "origins story".

Square Enix have dropped a press release bomb that confirms our suspicions of poor Lara Croft getting ship wrecked on some island, all alone (sort of) and having to fend for herself.

"Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider," said Darrell Gallagher, big boss of Crystal Dynamics. "This is an origins story that creates Lara Croft and takes her on a character defining journey like no other."

The upcoming issue of Game Informer will have 10 pages exposing the new Crystal Dynamic's videogame, which is available now for subscribers or in newstands December 11th. Check out the full press release below from Square Enix.
