If a movie can get rebooted, why not a video game, right? That’s what they did with Tomb Raider, which could have been in danger of being forgotten in today’s video game age, but the new model Lara Croft got very high marks from players and reviewers. And being that games can have even more sequels than a movie franchise, another Tomb Raider game is indeed in the works.
The long awaited Tomb Raider game reboot is finally upon us, and it’s garnered extremely positive reviews thus far.
The Tomb Raider reboot hits store shelves on March 5.
Square Enix has posted a teaser clip showcasing the multiplayer aspects of the new Tomb Raider game.
With the likes of Batman, Spider-Man, James Bond, etc, all getting Hollywood makeovers, there is little to question when video games do the same thing.
