Around a month ago, Eidos Interactive unveiled the first image of the new-and-improved Tomb Raider heroine, Lara Croft. Looking nothing like Angelina Jolie, who played her in the Tomb Raider films, the new Lara also sports redder hair and a more athletic--and less buxom--physique than previous incarnations.
Today, Eidos showed what the new Lara can do when it released the first trailer for the current-generation console versions of Tomb Raider: Legend. The trailer begins with the gun-toting adventuress performing some ground rolls in a darkened room, and it goes on to show a cutscene of her svelte figure as she walks in front of a setting sun.
Then, in a series of quick cuts, Lara is seen in an overgrown ruin, a modern office building, some rickety mines, and a medieval tomb. She performs several maneuvers, including ground slides, evasive dodges, and some cliff-hanging platform-jumping. Later on, she can be seen climbing ropes against a neon cityscape, as well as eventually performing a daring stunt with a motorcycle.
The Tomb Raider: Legend trailer also features several close-ups of the now-much-more-expressive Ms. Croft. Her eyes can be seen giving cautious-but-somehow-furtive sidelong glances. It concludes with a montage of Lara in combat, where she employs her trademark dual pistols, in addition to a rocket launcher.
Tomb Raider: Legend is due out this fall on the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2. It will also be released for the PSP and Xbox 360 at a later date. Check out GameSpot's previous coverage for more on this make-or-break installment of the long-running franchise.
