June 17, 2016 Kate Sykes 0 Comments

E3 2016 is over and Tomb Raider was there in full force to celebrate the 20th anniversary.
In case you missed any of this week's activities, here's a recap.

Top Tombs

Meagan Marie (Senior Community Manager at Crystal Dynamics) was joined by long time fan/cosplayer Raymond Croft and cosplayer/streamer Jade Jolie to talk about the fan favourite tombs from the Tomb Raider series [starts at 1:28:00].

Statues by Gaming Heads and Beta Footage from Tomb Raider 1

In an interview with E3 on Twitch, Meagan Marie and Rich Briggs (Brand Manager at Crystal Dynamics) revealed some footage from early development in the first Tomb Raider game - where we see Lara still wearing her plait and red sunglasses as she demonstrates a multi-aim that was later scrapped. They also made a special announcement about 6 new statues by Gaming Heads depicting Lara throughout her 20 years which will also fit together as one. Fans have the chance to vote for the 6th statue (between Tomb Raider Chronicles catsuit and Tomb Raider: Angel of the Darkness standard outfit). You can vote here.

Official Cover for "20 Years of Tomb Raider" Revealed

I'm so excited to be a part of this book written by Meagan Marie! It will be on shelves 18th October and it's available to pre-order now on Amazon.

"Re/Visioned: Tomb Raider" Re-released in HD

In 2007 (after Tomb Raider's 10th anniversary), GameTap produced an animated web series starring well known English actress Minnie Driver as the voice of Lara Croft which would win an Emmy award. During Meagan's research for the 20th anniversary book, she interviewed series producer Elliot Blake and obtained all original 10 episodes.
As a final E3 treat, they were re-released in HD on the official Tomb Raider Youtube channel.
