Tomb Raider Underworld Goes Backwards Compatible On Xbox One

I would have thought the trilogy of Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld would have been made backwards compatible back when the announcement of Rise of the Tomb Raider being Xbox exclusive hit, but alas no. We finally get to play Underworld though! The Xbox exclusive DLC is backwards compatible as well! Hopefully the others will follow suite soon.

Crystal Dynamics have also given us an extra treat! Check out these unreleased box art explorations for the game! They are pretty cool if you ask me.

Updates On The Tomb Raider Suite Progress

GameFaceShow recently interviewed Nathan McCree on The Tomb Raider Suite and his progress on the project.

Nathan is hard at work getting The Tomb Raider Suite all set for production! Over the last month he has been going through all of the orders of the backers tallying up everything that needs to be made. He is about half way through, so hang in there if you haven't heard from him yet. He will confirm your add-ons and such via e-mail.

The stretch goals are also looking like they indeed will be possible. Nathan has confirmed that the choir will be increased from 20 to 40 members and a 5th recording session will be held at Abbey Road Studios. Hopefully the rest of the goals can be made as well.

The Tomb Raider Suite website will soon be updated with options to purchase select Kickstarter merchandise and the retail version of the album!

New Tomb Raider Comic Series Announced!

Dark Horse and Crystal Dynamics have announced Tomb Raider: Survivor's Crusade, the third run of comics from the reboot series. A whole new creative team will detail Lara's quest to uncover the mystery of her father's death. And...hopefully...these issues will lead into the next Tomb Raider game! Preview the story and sketches below!

From Dark Horse:

"The trials and tribulations of Lara Croft continue! Dark Horse and Crystal Dynamics are excited to announce the next installment in the Tomb Raider comic universe. Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade boasts a whole new creative team with Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (Joyride, Hacktivist) composing Lara’s new adventure, while Ashley A. Woods (Ladycastle, Niobe) brings Lara Croft to life, and colorist legend Michael Atiyeh (Conan the Slayer, Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) makes the art pop! Hannah Fisher (Cosmoknights) has created the gorgeous cover for the first issue."

"In Tomb Raider: Survivor’s Crusade, Lara Croft has unfinished business. After facing Trinity in Siberia, she’s driven to unravel the mystery behind her father’s death. After pushing her training to the limit and following clues that lead to more questions than answers, Lara is prepared to put everything on the line to uncover the truth."

The first of four issues debuts November 22, 2017.
