The E3 Ambassadors Talk Tomb Raider and Lara Croft

In June 2015, Crystal Dynamics and Xbox invited a group of Tomb Raider fan site admins to represent the TR fanbase at E3. During their stay in Los Angeles, the ambassadors were treated to some press-only demo footage (i.e. the Syria demo mentioned elsewhere on this site) and got the chance to interview some of the Rise of the Tomb Raider development team to learn more about the upcoming game.

Now that the E3 dust has settled, let’s see what the ambassadors have to say about this highly-anticipated sequel:

  • Evolving an Icon: Lara Croft 2.0 by Marco (Allgame: Tomb Raider) – Italian fan site admin Marco writes about the multifaceted evolution of Lara Croft from both a narrative and technical perspective. In his interview with Brian Horton, he touches upon Lara’s motivation and personality as well as the technology used to bring Lara to life in the 2013 reboot and Rise.
  • A Return to Tombs by Rachel (Guns & Grapple) – UK fan site admin Rachel discusses tomb design, ancient spaces, and puzzle-solving with Senior Designer Jeff Wajcs.

Note: Some of the ambassadors’ blogs were not available on the official Tomb Raider blog at the time of writing. I will update this article as and when the last few E3 blogs are published, so feel free to check back here at a later date!
