Tomb Raider Teams Up With Geocaching.com

Geocaching, for the unaware, is location-based, real-world treasure hunting based on GPS coordinates and exploration. Crystal Dynamics recently teamed up with Groundspeak to create a series of Tomb Raider-themed Geocaching activities.

"Through several initiatives over the coming year, Crystal Dynamics and Geocaching.com will team up to create a series of unique location-based adventures embodying the spirit of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft’s drive to become an explorer. To develop these adventures, Crystal Dynamics will use both the traditional Geocaching.com treasure hunting format as well as Groundspeak’s latest photo-based adventure project, Geocaching Challenges."

There aren't any details about what exactly these challenges will entail, but hopefully they won't require gun battles with wolves or dinosaurs.

Tomb Raider is set to release late in 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
