The lights are on
Crystal Dynamics has released a new demo video of Tomb Raider, narrated by creative director Noah Hughes.
The 11-minute demo shows off a wealth of combat and mechanics which should be enough to get any action fan excited. Some nice touches include a dynamic cover system that has Lara ducking behind objects automatically when enemies are near, and the ability to create her own ziplines with a bow and arrow and some rope. It turns out Lara ain't too bad with a shotgun, either.
Tomb Raider will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 5. For more on Tomb Raider, check out this Guide to Survival video.

I am very excited about this game. The graphics and interaction look amazing. I really like the different approaches you can take to each situation. It feels like the old Tomb Raiders, but it's totally different at the same time. Definitely a pre-order for this guy.
