Lara Croft News: Lara Croft may be younger, but she still has an nice "accent," as you can see in this teaser trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot.

Lara Coft is looking younger, slimmer, but still legal in the new Tomb Raider reboot teaser trailer from Square-Enix. Dubbed "Turning Point," this three-minute video follows a 21-year-old Lara Croft, as she sets out from home in search of adventure. Only her ship destroyed by a massive storm that leaves her shipwrecked, injured and alone on a seemingly deserted island.

The trailer for this Xbox 360, PS3 and PC game seems to reinforce previous comments by developer Crystal Dynamics, which stated that the new game is intended to make Lara a more relatable, vulnerable character than the nigh-superhuman figure of previous games. The overall tone is decidedly ominous and bleak, particularly the final shots of a stranded Lara on the beach before the looming bulk of the front half of her ship. There's no gameplay footage, but there's a definite emphasis on the sort of struggle for survival that the game is said to be focused on, with an exhausted, disheveled Lara staggering along a deserted, wreckage-strewn beach and a rather painful-looking scene of Lara resetting a fractured bone in her arm.

The entire trailer is visually stunning, but we'll have to wait to see the gameplay in motion when E3 2011 rolls into town next week. It's one of our last appointments during the show, but one of the games we're looking forward to the most. In between E3 2011 and Tomb Raider's planned third quarter 2012 release date, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC gamers have a long, long window.
