Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced that TOMB RAIDER, developed by Crystal Dynamics, is now available in stores for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. The Windows PC version is available via online platforms including Steam.

?Creating something truly special is incredibly challenging. You have got to really want it: you have to be passionate; you have to care about it, and you have to dedicate yourself,? said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio at Crystal Dynamics. ?We have a studio full of talented people who have put their hearts into making this game – this is not just a game on their resume, speak to any one of them, they?ve been on a journey. We hope that the game we?ve built will endure and that this is a well deserving renaissance for Lara Croft.?

Written by Rhianna Pratchett and John Stafford, with music composed by Jason Graves, TOMB RAIDER explores the intense origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from an untried and untested young woman to a hardened survivor.

In addition, the game has been accompanied by a wealth of companion items and interactive media, including a Brady Strategy Guide and companion art book (The Art of Survival), a Dark Horse Comic, written by Pratchett, (TOMB RAIDER: The Beginning), an Official Soundtrack, an official TOMB RAIDER Online Store, and The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER App available on iTunes, the Amazon Appstore and coming soon to Steam.
