Lara Croft is ‘Reborn’ in Tomb Raider Launch Trailer

We are Lara, and we’re ready to survive by any means necessary.

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have taken an interesting approach for Tomb Raider’s launch trailer. Sure, you get the obligatory snippets of gameplay, but mixed amongst all that are clips of real people projecting themselves onto Lara Croft’s latest plight. The message: we are Lara, and we’re going to kick some ass in order to survive.

It’s an effective launch trailer, as far as I’m concerned. It has me pumped to raid some more tombs. Tomb Raider launches next Tuesday, March 5, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. We’ll have a Watch Us Play episode up tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that.
