Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics launch a year-long celebration to mark the 25th anniversary of Tomb Raider.

The celebration of Tomb Raider‘s 25th anniversary is already in full flow. There’s a new game in the early stages of development at Crystal Dynamics, mobile title Tomb Raider Reloaded is due later this year, and an anime is coming to Netflix. We also have confirmation that Misha Green is directing the second movie to star Alicia Vikander in the role of Lara Croft.

If you want to keep up with developments, the new Tomb Raider 25th anniversary hub is your best bet. Square Enix promise a steady stream of updates, including in-depth explorations of the franchise’s key games, developer interviews, community activities, playthroughs, and a heavy sprinkling of nostalgia.

Speaking about the anniversary, Scot Amos, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics, says:

“Over the last 25 years Tomb Raider has become more than a game and Lara Croft has risen to become a cultural icon. We’re so proud to be a part of this rich tapestry of adventure, but we recognize the true credit belongs to the fans! The amazing Tomb Raider community has made all of this possible and we look forward to celebrating with them his historic milestone and for many decades to come.”

Recent updates include a look at some iconic artefacts from Lara Croft’s adventures, and a reimagining of the first game’s cover art by franchise art director Brenoch Adams.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
