Lara Croft returns in next-gen Tomb Raider title

Blood bath on the beach

Lara Croft has returned in (almost) all her glory today, appearing in a promo trailer for the new Tomb Raider game, out next year.

With E3 round the corner, Square Enix decided now was a good time to give fans a taste of things to come.

And there's no better way of showing off Tomb Raider than with a spot of that age-old fan-favourite sadism - a clip of poor Ms Croft drowning.

It probably doesn't help that those Bulgarian airbags appear to have deflated slightly from previous games. Then again, this is meant to take place before Angelina Jolie gave the character a curvaceous boost when she portrayed her in the Tomb Raider movies.

Despite being set during Lara's origins as an adventurer, though, the CGI clip seems to show the cave explorer using an iPhone. Either she got fed up of dodgy signal failures and went back to an older model after this, or someone's got their history askew.

Either way, I bet she wishes it was waterproof. By the end of the video she's stranded on a desert island, from where the game will take place. We know little more, bar details of a 2012 release.
