Tomb Raider is an action video game for Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3), release date to be announced later. The game is developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix Europe. Fresh from academy and in search of lost relics, a 21-year-old Lara Croft journeys to an island off the coast of Japan aboard the Endurance, a salvage vessel helmed by Captain Conrad Roth. Before anchoring at bay, the ship is wrecked by an unforeseen storm leaving Croft separated from other survivors and washed ashore. She must endure physical and emotional torture in order to survive the island.

The game begins with Croft devoid of any weapons, tools or essentials such as food and water, which the player must search for in order to survive. Sections of the island are restricted to the player until Lara is able to perform specific physical abilities achieved via a "skill system", or obtained the necessary equipment to advance. At frequent base camps throughout the world, the player can combine pick-ups to create new items, improve Lara's abilities and/or fast travel to previously discovered base camps to avoid copious amounts of backtracking. There is a "much larger emphasis" on combat, as instead of using a lock-on aiming system akin to previous Tomb Raiders this game will employ a manual "free aim" mechanic.
