Check out the rare concept pieces above found in The Final Hours of Tomb Raider App! It is chock full of details on the creation of Tomb Raider, including a slew of deleted material.
“The Final Hours of Tomb Raider is a story about the reinvention of both a brand and a studio,” said Geoff Keighley. “This franchise reboot was itself rebooted multiple times, and now, for the first time, the team at Crystal Dynamics shares with fans the early prototypes and concepts that didn’t make it into the finished game.”
The Final Hours of Tomb Raider App is available for the iPad, PC (via Steam), and the Kindle Fire for $2.99. It also works on other Android devices. I have mine on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. All I had to do was download the Amazon App Store and I could purchase The Final Hours of Tomb Raider from there. ;)
Three new multiplayer maps are available now in the Caves and Cliffs Map Pack, an exclusive to XBOX Live for a timed period.

This scavenger settlement was built high up on the island cliffs. Its many layers hide some of the deadliest traps on the island
The Burning Village

Each of those maps is playable in all four game modes: Rescue, Cry for Help, Team Deathmatch, and Free for All.
