A rumor hit the Internet that the reboot of Eidos' Tomb Raider franchise will take the series into a new survival-horror direction. The site where the rumor originated from published some concept art of a much younger, more athletic and less voluptuous version of Lara Croft. The artwork has already been taken down, but Bit Tech saw it and reports Lara was riding horseback and carrying a bow and arrow, rather than firing machine guns from a motorbike, and noticed that the concept art featured rotting zombies.
The Eidos mole apparently also dished out some details on the story for the game, which is apparently a total reboot of the series after the conclusion of the last trilogy of games. The game will apparently focus on Lara getting stranded on an abandoned Japanese island after a storm wrecks her research vessel and will see Lara at a far younger age than we may have done before.
Typically, the game will feature a lot of exploration and tombs according to the leaked information, but it also seems to be putting a much larger emphasis on the horror element too - the eerily abandoned houses of the island and the vast, mysterious wilderness Lara finds herself in evoke images of a Silent Hill inspired game.
