With all the fuss about the Tomb Raider franchise, we almost forgot that a mobile game was in development: Tomb Raider Reloaded. The project was announced in 2020 when the license was still under Square Enix’s control, but despite the sale to Embracer Group, the project seems to have continued its development without ever giving us much news. Until today, when it’s back on the scene with a release date just around the corner and a little more explanation about its unique concept for the series.
Tomb Raiding continues on mobile
Tomb Raider Reloaded will bring Lara Croft (dubbed by Keeley Hawes, who has already played the heroine in several games in the past) in a new adventure described as a roguelite.
In other words, the game will feature constantly changing paths, obstacles, and traps, where you must unlock new weapons and abilities (which will also change) as you progress. Puzzles will of course be the main focus of the game, as well as the action, with automated shooting to make mobile controls easier.
This new approach for the Tomb Raider license will be available from February 14 on iOS and Android mobile platforms, but also on Netflix, in an ad-free version for subscribers.
