Here we are again in time for another Weekly Wrap-Up! Well, what has happened throughout the world of Tomb Raider the WEEK OF 04/22/2016
#TOMBRAIDER20 HUB PAGE
Come visit the Tomb Raider hub page of the official blog. It is in celebration of the 20 years of excellence Lara has had as a gaming icon and phenomenon. You are encouraged to bookmark this page for the latest updates on the 20th celebration. You can find them archived there at this link
The following is another update for Pax East:
It’s finally here! Our #TombRaider20 kickoff panel,“Lara Croft: The Undisputed Queen of Gaming”, is this Friday at PAX East in Boston, MA on Friday, April 22 from 3:00 – 4:00 PM EDT.
Moderated by Greg Miller, representatives from press, Core Design, and Crystal Dynamics will share experiences, anecdotes, and perhaps an announcement or two. If you are unable to attend, the panel will be streamed live!
“Tomb Raider embodies the spirit of discovery, the thrill of the unknown, and the promise of adventure. At its heart is Lara Croft, a force within the gaming industry who has made an indelible mark on virtually every facet of entertainment, and reaches millions of people around the world. In short, Lara Croft has been a cultural icon for 20 years. Join Crystal Dynamics and special guests to explore Lara’s impact on gaming, and how she helped break down barriers within the industry.”
Panelists include Greg Miller, Alexa Ray Corriea [Gamespot], Nathan McCree [Core Design], and Meagan Marie, Kam Yu and Jason Botta from Crystal Dynamics!
|After the panel, we will be hosting our first Lara Croft cosplay gathering of 2016 and handing out new exclusive Tomb Raider 20-year celebration swag for everyone who attends in costume.
