This title was unveiled at E32011 behind closed doors at the Square Enix booth. Mostly showing some early game play and initial story elements. While the original Tomb Raider games were about exploration, and puzzle solving. This reboot of the franchise is more about survival, and delving into the human psyche of survival. Which ultimately brings the game really close to survival horror genre.

The game picks up after a plane crash on a very enigmatic island somewhere off the coast of Asia. With Lara, and her friend captured by local hostiles, it is up for her to move through traumatic, character defining situations, so that she can regroup and escape the island. On this island, forces beyond her control leave Lara little alternative but to ruthlessly fight for her life.
