Square Enix has recently released that the next game in the Tomb Raider franchise will be known as Tomb Raider Reloaded. They took to Twitter sharing on their official account with a short teaser, with the caption “Lara blasts onto mobile in 2021!”
The Tomb Raider Reloaded will be a free-to-play action arcade game made by Emerald City games and published by the developers Square Enix London Mobile. The game is described as an action-arcade game. This means that it will not be like the endless runner Lara Croft: Relic Run which is another game by the developers, or Lara Craft Go which is currently available on both Android and Ios platforms. The trailer showcases some enemies that Croft will be facing, which include giant spiders, a wolf, dinosaurs, and rock monsters.
The last Tomb Raider game which was released was named Shadow of the Tomb Raider which was a sequel to the 2015 game Rise of the Tomb Raider and 2013’s Tomb Raider. The game follows, of course, the protagonist Lara Croft as she tries to find the ancient city of Paititi before the world gets destroyed by a Mayan apocalypse. Croft is a popular character who is known and loved by all for her cool moves, use of weapons, and athletic skills to survive, as the plot thickens and gets interesting.
Insights of the new game
The Lara Croft Tomb Raider reloaded, has her fighting different kinds of enemies. By looking at the trailer we can see that the game has 3D actions, and the characters are in 3D too! Which may give you a new gaming experience and a look into the Lara Croft franchise world. People will see a glimpse of Croft holding guns in the trailer and looking cool, as usual with her tank top and shorts. This makes it more exciting for the users to anticipate what more they can find with the game and what it has to offer for the audience and fans of the Lara Croft Franchise.
The developers are trying to create a long term effect on the users, which will be an advantage as it becomes much easier to launch newer versions of the game and create a brand value for that game. Lara Croft has remained the lead character for the Tomb Raider game since the start by the company Square Enix.

We are not yet sure how the game will be control, or where Lara’s adventures will lead her but all we know that she is ready in her trademark outfit, in the newly released free-to-play action game. Fans can take a look at this light-hearted version of the mobile game, after the grim feeling and more mature ones in the older games.
However, Lara is set to make a big return to our smaller screens making it easier to play her, and also enjoy the 3D graphics of the game. The graphics are more cartoony and kid-friendly but this won’t stop Lara from her adventures with the classic traps, and challenging puzzles to solve and proceed. The trailer briefly shows golden disks which could be something Lara is after or looking for in this game.
