Back in December, a new issue of the US magazine Game Informer hit the shelves, bringing with it delightful news of a brand spanking new Lara Croft game. Very few details were given (of which you can read here) though one of the things we learnt with the magazine’s feature is that the series is begin given a complete reboot, with a fresher looking, younger faced Lara being the protagonist of this new game.
Adding to the very little that we know about the game, the Official Xbox 360 Magazine has a few things about the game that you should know.

On the story, the mag had said
A keen-faced, 21 year-old Lara, on her first relic hunt off the coast of Japan.
OXM also said that players would meet Lara as she is put in a difficult situation (which, for treasure hunters, is pretty common!)
She befriends a hunky ex-marine onboard, shortly before a terrible storm ensues and their ship is dragged to the vasty deeps. A bruised, battered and bleeding Lara drags herself ashore and this is where her career really begins.
Ooh, sounds like fun stuff! But the most interesting part of the feature was this…
There’s a hint of the supernatural with images of what look like ghost ships and effigies to dark Gods
The possibility of a supernatural element could perhaps be an ode to the most recent Lara Croft game which was a PSN title that had you fighting with ‘magic warrior’ against some ancient supernatural baddies – this is fine by me as the game was really good!
