Tomb Raider “Turning Point” Trailer Released

After much teasing, the debut trailer for the highly anticipated Tomb Raider reboot has finally been released. Lara Croft’s adventures have never been this intense before. It’s a new direction that really works for the franchise.

The CG trailer sets the mood quite perfectly. This will be a tale of survival and, from the looks of it, pain. There’s even a bit of a Snake Eater vibe going on. Let’s just hope that the gameplay comes close to matching the atmosphere of the trailer.


According to the video, Tomb Raider is scheduled to release sometime in Fall 2012.

  1. HOLY CRAP!! :D

    • Agreed!

      • Yeah, wow. They certainly have a good vision for the game, just have to wait and see if they can create it.

    • I know its CGI but she has a cracking rack which is nicely on show when she is falling from that guys hands :P

      • They’ve shrunk it. Now she looks like she might actually be a real person. I like it better that way.

  2. Is it meant to be the Bermuda Triangle with all the different ships and planes crashed?

    • Nope, that’s off Cuba – She is off Japan, I think, as that is what the map shown was. Good guess though.

  3. This looks amazing. Can’t wait to get my hands on… the game!
    Also, I’m sure I’m not the only one who looked at the boobs when she fell at 1:40. :D

    • Lol, i was just thinking – reach out to save her – or knock one out.. tough choice… ;)

      • hahahah :P thats made me laugh a lot :L

  4. Wow. if the game lives up to even a bit of this trailer then… well, then Tomb Raider is back!

    • Uncharted will finally have some competition!

  5. i’m liking the vibe i’m getting from the trailer, i was worried that this reboot would contradict lara’s established origin, but now i think maybe it complements it.
    like she survived the plane crash before, and now she’s setting out on these expeditions, but she doesn’t yet have all the skills she needs.

    i can see a game where certain areas are inaccessible at the start and she acquires the skills or equipment needed to access them in the game, in the style of the soul reaver titles.

    can’t wait to see some actual gameplay.

  6. Looking really good, looking forward to more vids (gameplay) :)

  7. OOOh… me likey.

  8. Teared up at the end. No joke.

    • Because of the release date? I think my exact reaction to seeing Fall 2012 was “Noooooooooooooooooooooooo”

    • I just thought it was very emotional. That said, it was very early and I was heading to the gym. I was a bit of an emotional wreck already.

      • The thought of exercise early in the morning can do that to man…

      • Lol. I was half asleep at the time. Thinking about MGS3 Snake Eater…

  9. The bit when she tips her head back & screams when she’s sorting her arm out on the island is so Metal; gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

  10. Mm, is it going to be Tomb Raiding though?
