This year's San Diego Comic Con is going to be packed with incredible Tomb Raider events, including a large Lara Croft cosplay gathering. Between Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th June, fans can experience a wide range of activities celebrating the series, as well as getting a glimpse into what lies in store for our heroine. 

If you're not planning to attend in cosplay, there are plenty of Tomb Raider sessions taking place throughout the show, but the real highlight will be the gathering on the Saturday which allows fans to meet with the people behind the game, see the demo and attend the panel.
