Tomb Raider set for another makeover?

Lara will be "younger and inexperienced".

The next Tomb Raider game will take Lara in a new direction, according to a report in the latest issue of PC Gamer.

A brief news piece in the magazine reads, "Set on a Japanese island, the idea is to have one, cohesive level with multiple ways around the puzzles. We'll also be exploring Lara's origins, so she'll be younger and inexperienced in the ways of raiding tombs."

Earlier this year Eurogamer discovered that the new Tomb Raider would be released next Christmas on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The most recent game in the franchise, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, was released on Xbox Live Arcade in August as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade season. It's due to arrive on PlayStation Network on 28th September, with an online multiplayer patch going live for Xbox 360 users on the same day.

Eurogamer's Keza MacDonald awarded Lara's isometric adventure a precious, highly sought-after 9/10.
