In conjunction with the next game...
Along with a new game and a Dark Horse comic, the story of Tomb Raider will continue with a new novel called Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals. It will be released later this year from Brady Games.
Here's a synopsis: Haunted by what she was forced to endure in order to survive her first adventure, Lara Croft wants only to put her horrifying ordeal on Yamatai island behind her. Her modest wish shatters as she's plunged into a frantic race to save her best friend Sam from a toxic overdose. Desperate for a remedy, Lara searches for anything that could help Sam. A wisp of hope arising from a myth gives Lara purpose: the story of an ancient and mysterious artifact that could heal her dying friend, and possibly help explain the supernatural events she witnessed on Yamatai.' However, Lara is not alone in her pursuit of the treasure. A nefarious magnate, a shadow society, and lethal henchmen will stop at nothing to exploit the powerful relic for their own ends. The hunt drives Lara across the globe, through a twisted web of conspiracy, suspicious contacts, and life-or-death intrigue, as she seeks salvation for her friend and the truth behind the legendary talisman.
The book was written by Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Nik Vincent. It's been written to go along with the latest Crystal Dynamics game to make it a canon tale in the new story. You can pre-order the book here.
