The 2013 revival of Tomb Raider from Crystal Dynamics reintroduces a new generation of players to the iconic video game heroine, now reimagined as a archaeology graduate set on uncovering the lost kingdom of Yamatai rumored to be located in the "Devil's Sea" off the eastern coast of Japan. Her expedition takes a turn for the worst when it gets shipwrecked on a mysterious island in the area, only for Lara to discover they are targeted by a mysterious cult.

In Tomb Raider, players become Lara Croft as she explores the island and defends herself from cultists using a variety of improvised and looted weapons. Both exploration and combat is conducted from a third person viewpoint, where players can attempt to use the environment and surroundings to their advantage. In addition to melee and ranged combat, players can attempt to use stealth to kill enemies silently or via ambush.

Like previous titles, the various locations across the island of Yamatai feature platforming and puzzle elements which players can challenge to uncover hidden areas and rewards.

Tomb Raider also features team-based multiplayer modes supporting up to four players a side. There are three multiplayer modes which take place on several maps designed for them.

An updated version of the 2013 game called the "Definitive Edition" was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, featuring improved graphics with 1080p resolution support.
