SQUARE ENIX and Crystal Dynamics today announced that Jason Graves, an award-winning composer with an outstanding pedigree across film, television and gaming is penning the original score for TOMB RAIDER.

In ?The Sound of Survival,? Zachary Levi escorts viewers to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) London headquarters, and speaks to Graves about his role in the reboot of the iconic TOMB RAIDER franchise. BAFTA has previously recognized Graves?s work for ?Original Score? and ?Use of Audio? in Dead Space.

Graves reveals his vision for the game?s soundscape and speaks about infusing atmosphere, emotion and authenticity into Lara?s origins story through his musical score. The composer then illustrates his search to find the perfect sound for the game through his collaboration with Sculptor, Matt McConnel, who created a wholly custom-made and original instrument to aid Graves in bringing a unique sound to TOMB RAIDER.

Tomb Raider is scheduled for a March 2013 release at the moment. Pre-order it below at Amazon for access to The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER ? Director?s Cut Kindle Fire edition and an exclusive Hunter skin and art book.
