WHAT WE'RE PLAYING
The rise of Lara Croft
Her story starts here, with courage and adventure.
Tomb Raider Double Pack
Every story has a before and an after. These games are about the before – before Lara Croft became a legendary adventurer and before she was fearless; when she was still an inexperienced explorer and unsure of herself. Can you help her rise to become the heroine she was destined to be?
In this reboot of the Tomb Raider series, Lara Croft is a young archaeology graduate on her first expedition to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai.
Croft believes Yamatai is hidden in the infamous Dragon’s Triangle and convinces the crew of the Endurance to sail into those dangerous waters. But a storm destroys the ship and strands the survivors on an isolated island. Soon, they discover they’re not alone. A hostile cult controls the land and Croft must find a way to rescue her shipmates and escape the island before they’re hunted down.
Tomb Raider is not a game for the faint-hearted. Survival on the island is a bleak contest and Croft is not yet a battle-tested survivor. She’s vulnerable and afraid, and you’ll feel the hurt she endures.
But the more you explore the island, the stronger Croft becomes. When you complete missions, you gain experience and can upgrade her abilities and weapons. Slowly but surely, she transforms from a novice into a warrior.
A survivor is born
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Whereas Tomb Raider confined you to a desolate island, Rise of the Tomb Raider lands you in the deserts of Syria and the mountains of Siberia.
Set a year after the first game, Croft struggles to process her experience on the island. It drives her to find answers about her late father’s search for the lost city of Kitezh, a search that drove him to ruin. Croft’s quest leads her to Trinity, a sinister paramilitary organisation that wants to find Kitezh for itself and won’t hesitate to get rid of anyone in its way.
Rise of the Tomb Raider builds on its predecessor. Not only are the vistas more expansive and spectacular, but there are also more tombs to explore, skills to unlock and even outfits (that provide practical bonuses) to collect. And once you’ve completed the game, Expedition Mode lets you replay with new goals.
Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider not only invigorate the series, but also reveal new dimensions to Lara Croft. Her persona is no longer inscrutable. This is a woman on a path of becoming, and you’re right there with her every step of the way.
