The Tomb Raider reboot that will be released next year will hopefully see the action heroine get a new lease of life, and perhaps we might see Angelina Jolie reprise her role on the silver screen as well? Who knows, stranger things have happened in the past. Well, apart from restarting the story of the video game icon, the Tomb Raider 2013 reboot will also translate to good ol’ Lara forgetting one of the most essential skills of any adventurer – to be able to swim. Crystal Dynamics global brand manager Karl Stewart mentioned so over Twitter, where in response to a fan’s tweet that went, “Is it true that Lara Can’t swim in the new game, and why?”, he replied, “Lara can swim, but just not in this game.”

She will also regenerate her life over the course of time, meaning there is no need for healing items. Does this mean whenever Lara is badly injured, all we need to do is leave her standing there, go for a shower and have our dinner, only to return to her fully healed? Perhaps in her sabbatical, she must have picked up a mutant power or two from Wolverine. Those who are interested can pick up Tomb Raider on March 5th, 2013 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC platforms.
