Certain people in this world only think of the newer adventures of Lara Croft when they hear the words Tomb Raider. These people aren’t wrong, they just don’t know any better. After all, the rebooted Tomb Raider series did debut back in 2013.
There are plenty of players who consider themselves fans of the series that weren’t even born when Lara was making a name for herself on the original PlayStation. It’s a shame because, although the new games are great, the old ones are a fantastic piece of history that deserves to be played. I still prefer them personally.
If a new leak is anything to go by we all may be raiding many more tombs soon. First reported by PSU.com, it seems that a new collection is coming. As with all rumors take this with a pinch of salt until it’s official, but if it is true this collection will launch on August 27, so we won’t have too long to wait. Titled Tomb Raider: The Ultimate Experience, a leaked image shows not only a release date but also 3 images of Lara from her PS1, PS2, and PS3 days. The tagline promises we can relive Lara’s ultimate adventures all in one package.
As this isn’t official yet, we can only speculate what games would be included, but the image shows PS1 Lara along with images from Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Even if this just gave us the original set of games I would be extremely happy and posting a certain well known Futurama meme all over the internet. If it adds in the PS3 trilogy I will be printing out said meme and posting it through my neighbors’ doors.
The Tomb Raider package is said to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, Steam, and Stadia. I cannot even begin to tell you what a big deal this is.
This rumor seems fairly legit too as a trademark from Square Enix was updated in June showing the Tomb Raider Ultimate Experience. When this becomes official, we’ll bring you more. I’ll also apologize if I haven’t made much sense, I’m just excited. Take a look at a review for the original game and you may see why.
Let us know how excited you are in the comments and if you need me I’m off to freeze myself until August.
