Q: What can you tell us about the Lara Croft we meet in Tomb Raider, and what drew you to the character? Presumably, we will see more of the game at E3 as well.

In "Tomb Raider", which has elements of "Indiana Jones", "Batman" and even "Tron: Legacy", but with an angsty young woman at the center instead of an angsty young man, Alicia Vikander takes a lot of beatings.

After leaking yesterday, Square Enix has formally announced today that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the title of the next game set in the Tomb Raider series.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set for release on September 14th, 2018!

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have officially unveiled Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Called The Battle of the Boroughs, New York area players level 30 and above are invited to enter online qualifiers beginning on April 14, and finalists will compete in the amateur tournament during the festival.

Fans and filmgoers looking forward to the upcoming reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, starring Academy Award-winning actress Alicia Vikander, have had to face down some sexist grumbling regarding the performer's take on the video game heroine, archaeologist and adventurer Lara Croft.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider will launch on September 14, 2018.

Q: What was your reaction when you were first approached about taking on the iconic role of Lara Croft? . The film has too-long a setup for her feistiness and her sadness at the seven-year absence of her father (see Wrinkle in Time for the consequences of leaving your child for a greater cause).

So the fact that "Tomb Raider" is both always meant that the blockbuster was going to have to win over moviegoers. Square Enix seems to have done right by its fans for choosing not to have another Xbox exclusive, making sure everyone experiences the story and gameplay all at the same time.

The Tomb Raider site also teases a puzzle for players to solve, which will be released at 9 am PDT on Monday next week. We knew that a modern day audience would really appreciate this. Those involved in the development of the "Tomb Raider" reboot were very much aware of this problem from the outset, though.
