Normally Tomb Raider is a bit of a fanciful affair -- a pumped-up heroine, strutting about muddy tombs in skimpy clothes, yet always managing to look absolutely fantastic. If this stunning, gritty announcement trailer is anything to go by, the next instalment won't be anything like that.
Not that Lara Croft isn't as big and beautiful as ever in this reboot of the franchise; she's just a bit battered and bruised that's all. Good to see the horrendously suggestive vocal sound effects are still present. Look out for this in March 2013. [YouTube via Kotaku]
