The second secret unlocked!Dear raiders, a month ago as a present to Lara’s BD, we created the Treasure Vault project and revealed the first secret we had prepared for you. The time to unlock the second one has finally come and we are happy to present you an exclusive collection of videos and commercials Lara appeared in. We’ve collected everything we managed to find and it turned out to be quite an impressive pile of videos so we divided it into three thematic sections which we will reveal one by one. So enjoy part one – Commercials. Two others are soon to follow!
Keep in mind that some videos aren't of high quality given that they're really old and hard to obtain nowadays.

stevo505: Will we ever see some behind the scenes content, such as motion-capture and voice-recording sessions?
Karl: Yes, we intend to show lots of behind the scenes content, but are working to ensure that it isn’t delivered in the same old vein as developer diaries. We’re going to do something very special in not-so-distant future, although I don’t want to give it away right now.
aragorn2: The game will have any stealth system or it will be more action style?

This time, we're bringing you the speculations and history of the island of Atlas, or better known as Atlantis. There are many ideas and theories of the location of the lost empire.

The origins of the speculation of the Atlantean civilization was truly started from Greek philosopher and mathematician, Plato's dialogue Timaeus and Critias, written in 360 B.C. where he wrote:
"For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, an

Earlier today we posted a blog about two possible Tomb Raider games and they both were just officially confirmed!
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.
In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could
