Tomb Raider comes to smartphones and tablets with Lara Croft Go

New, 4 comments

Yesterday we got a look at some gameplay for the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider, and during Square Enix's press conference at E3 today the company's Montreal studio showed off a very different take on the character. Laura Croft Go is a puzzle adventure game for smartphones and tablets, following in the footsteps of the mobile game Hitman Go.

Whereas Tomb Raider traditionally has been about action and adventure, with Go the emphasis is on beautiful, clean visuals and simple puzzles. While the footage showed off still has Croft navigating caves and jungle ruins, it's a much simpler kind of game, calling to mind not only the Hitman spinoff but the atmosphere and serene score of games like Monument Valley. There's no word yet on release date or which devices the game will be available on, but Hitman Go and its sequel are both available on iOS and Android, and we imagine the same will be true here.

Developing. Check out our E3 hub for all the news!
