Tomb Raider (2013) is a reboot to the Tomb Raider franchise of action-adventure games, and is developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix.
Development began in 2008, soon after the release of Tomb Raider: Underworld , with the team focusing on the origins of Lara Croft. The idea was to take a naive and untested Lara and drop her into a situation where she would be forced to become battle-hardened to survive and save her friends.
Tomb Raider follows the crew of the Endurance, captained by Conrad Roth, as they seek out the island of Yamatai, a lost kingdom in the Dragon’s Triangle near Japan.
After a violent storm leaves the crew shipwrecked on a mysterious island, Lara finds herself separated from the main group and is quickly captured by its savage inhabitants. After escaping, Lara must search the island for her friends and uncover the dark secrets of the island, but doing so will require her to do anything to survive the cult-like group that lives there.
