BradyGames have today announced the upcoming publication of a paperback novel based in the narrative continuity of the recently-rebooted Tomb Raider video game franchise. Dubbed Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals, the 400-page text will act as an inbetween-quel of sorts, its narrative filling in some of the gaps between 2013's Tomb Raider and 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider (and yes, if you'd like to try and fit any more variations of the phrase Tomb Raider into this paragraph, be our guest!).
Here's the official plot synopsis for The Ten Thousand Immortals: "Haunted by what she was forced to do in order to survive her first adventure, Lara Croft wants only to put her horrific ordeal on Yamatai island in the past. Her modest wish shatters as she's plunged into a frantic race to save her best friend Sam from a toxic overdose. [...] A wisp of hope arising from a myth gives Lara purpose: the story of an ancient and mysterious artefact that could heal her dying friend, and possibly help explain the supernatural events she witnessed on Yamatai. But Lara is not alone in her pursuit of the treasure. A nefarious magnate, a shadow society, and lethal henchmen will stop at nothing to exploit the powerful relic for their own ends. The hunt drives Lara across the globe, through a twisted web of conspiracy, suspicious contracts, and life-or-death intrigue, as she seeks salvation for her friend and the truth behind the legendary talisman."
Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals is available to pre-order now at Amazon.co.uk and will be published in all good book retailers on October 20th.
