Celebrating 20 Years of an Icon, Lara Croft

2016 marks an incredible milestone - 20 years of Tomb Raider. As announced today, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix will mark the occasion with festivities throughout 2016, kicking off at PAX East this April.

?Since its introduction, Tomb Raider has held a significant place in video game history, and further cements that with this milestone,? said Ron Rosenberg, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. ?We look forward to celebrating with fans, and honoring the iconic Lara Croft with special events, retrospectives, giveaways and other surprises throughout this year of Tomb Raider.?

First making her debut in 1996 with the groundbreaking Tomb Raider from Core Design, famous archaeologist Lara Croft is a powerful force within the gaming industry and has made an indelible mark on virtually every facet of entertainment. From being named an ambassador for scientific excellence to appearing live on tour with U2, Lara Croft reached millions of people around the world. With over 30 video game titles released and hundreds of awards, the heroine has been a cultural icon for 20 years, rediscovering lost species, battling the undead, and rubbing elbows with divine beings all while adventuring around the globe. Her exploits have unfolded in over 25 countries. She?s explored the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Andaman Seas, ventured to Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, and rediscovered Atlantis and the lost island of Yamatai.

?Tomb Raider has become a cultural phenomenon over the last 20 years, selling millions of copies worldwide, sparking one of the most successful video game film adaptations in history, and inspiring our amazing fans of all ages,? said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. ?It?s incredible to be part of this legend and to see how much the series has evolved over time, and think about what?s yet to come. Here?s to 20 more years of adventure together.?
