Fans get date with Lara Croft
Don't hate the players
Square Enix already revealed Lara Croft's next outing in Tomb Raider had been pushed back but today it announced a definitive release date for the game.
Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot - delayed for quality improvement - will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC from 5 March 2013.
Fresh content is expected at the E3 expo next week, one year on from the Tomb Raider refresh first being announced.
In the meantime, here's the latest trailer, which features gameplay footage of the big-bosomed explorer getting rough and dirty, just how we like it:
She also seems to have lost her posh English accent, maybe after this Lord Croft decided "Laura you're a whiny wimp with a cheesy mid Atlantic accent I'm sending you to the Marines and elocution lessons in that order" :)

"Never played..." dear god man what have you been doing with your life?!?!?!?!
Re: Big Smile
I think we all crapped ourselves when that T-Rex appeared! As you say, looks quite tame now, but I can still remember the blind terror as I panicked, back-flipping down the valley with the finger held firmly on the fire button until the ammo ran out.
Can't view the trailer here at work - is this the one where she's in a tunnel/mine and there's lots of "push  to avoid falling rocks" "push X to dodge exploding barrels" etc. Which I thought was a shame - while fun in God of War, it's not a game mechanic that I think the Tomb Raider series needs. Much preferred it in the original few where I was responsible for triggering the cool stunts and near misses, not following some pre-designed path and timing.
Lara's had a boob reduction...
Doesn't look as sexy now...
