Press Release!

Feral Interactive announced today that the epic action adventure game Tomb Raider™ will be released for the Mac later this year. Developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix for PC and consoles, Tomb Raider is the much-praised series reboot that tells the gripping story of how a young woman becomes the extraordinary Lara Croft, Tomb Raider.

Winner of over 40 awards, the critically-acclaimed Tomb Raider had the biggest opening week sales in franchise history, and continues to be one of the top-selling titles of 2013.

When Lara is shipwrecked on the lost island of Yamatai armed with only her instincts, she soon finds out she’ll have to push the limits of endurance if she’s to uncover the island’s terrible secrets, save her friends and escape with her life.

To survive, Lara must adapt. Pursued by a savage cult, she will climb, jump and scramble her way through huge interlinked environments, from untouched forests to ancient Japanese temples, abandoned WWII bunkers and a sprawling shantytown. She’ll also need to master new skills, salvage vital resources and regularly upgrade her kit and weapons if she is to uncover Yamatai’s long-buried secrets.

“We all know Lara Croft as a coolly self-assured adventurer, but she wasn’t always that way,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Tomb Raider does an amazing job of tracing the character’s evolution from amateur explorer to battle-hardened survivor. It’s a tense, but intensely exhilarating journey.”

“We’re excited to bring Tomb Raider to the Mac, and in doing so introduce a new audience to Lara Croft’s origin story,” said Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Studios at Square Enix. “This is one more step on the road to achieving everything we wanted with the game.”

Pricing, system requirements, multiplayer details and a minisite dedicated to Tomb Raider for the Mac will be revealed closer to the release date. A trailer for Tomb Raider is available now on Feral's YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/feralinteractive).
