LOS ANGELES, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced that TOMB RAIDER®, developed by Crystal Dynamics®, is now available in stores for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The Windows® PC version is available via online platforms including Steam.
"Creating something truly special is incredibly challenging. You have got to really want it: you have to be passionate; you have to care about it, and you have to dedicate yourself," said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics. "We have a studio full of talented people who have put their hearts into making this game - this is not just a game on their resume, speak to any one of them, they've been on a journey. We hope that the game we've built will endure and that this is a well deserving renaissance for Lara Croft."
Written by Rhianna Pratchett and John Stafford, with music composed by Jason Graves, TOMB RAIDER explores the intense origin story of Lara Croft® and her ascent from an untried and untested young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold.
