Tomb Raider Reloaded has finally opened for pre-registration on Android, ahead of its Valentine’s Day launch later this month. Head on over to Google Play right now to sign up.
If you haven’t heard of this yet (and we’re not super surprised, given the general lack of buzz thus far), it’s an isometric shooter that borrows liberally from Archero.
How Does It Work?
You play as Lara Croft herself, and have to beat a bunch of levels by shooting all of the enemies into oblivion. Along the way, you’ll face challenging bosses that will take all of your skill to defeat.
It’s very likely that you’ll die a bunch of times, given that this is effectively a roguelike. To help you, you’ll unlock new gear that you can upgrade to improve your statistics.
That will encourage you to have just one more go, improving your skills and equipment along the way. It may not contain the depth of Hades, but it’ll still prove satisfying.
Why Should I Play It?
Puzzles make an appearance too, along with obstacle courses, and traps to avoid. You’ll also explore tombs in a variety of different locations, many of which harken back to the Tomb Raider games of yore.
That’s without mentioning the return of your favourite characters, like Anaya Imanu, Werner Von Croy, and Winston.
Perhaps most excitingly, Keeley Hawes – voice of Lara Croft in the Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld – makes a triumphant return to voice your favourite gaming character.
Okay, I’m sold!
With a lengthy campaign to battle through and rewards to earn for playing every day there’s plenty of reasons to check out the upcoming shooter.
So pre-register right now via the link at the top of this article, and get your hands on the golden dual pistols as a reward at launch.
