Award-winning videogame scribe, Rhianna Pratchet, is penning the story for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, Crystal Dynamics revealed today.

 

In the past, Pratchet has worked on games such as Mirror’s Edge, Heavenly Sword and the Overlord series among others.

 

“Seldom do we get the opportunity to re-imagine and reinvent a legend, so getting my narrative hands on Miss Croft was a once-in-a-life-time opportunity,” Pratchet said. “It was going back to the genesis of videogame action heroines and exploring how to make such an iconic character meaningful and relatable for gamers today.”

 

Tomb Raider re-tells the origins of series protagonist, Lara Croft, placing her on an island inhabited by mercenaries where she has to fend for herself, following a shipwreck. The game will be released on March 5th, 2013.
