Tomb Raider boasts 1m players in 48 hours

Tomb Raider hit the one million player milestone in less than two days, according to developer Crystal Dynamics.

Karl Stewart, global brand manager at the studio, said the series reboot has made a strong commercial start and thanked fans for their early support.

He posted on Twitter: "Wow, 1m gamers playing in less than 48hrs! @tombraider fans, you're AMAZING Hearing some stores are running low..more copies are on the way!"

“Lara Croft's latest adventure is easily her best,” we said in our Tomb Raider review, adding: “Lara Croft, the old Lara Croft, is dead. In place of a dolled-up gunslinger is a do-what-it-takes survivor--and we hope she hasn't had her fill of adventuring just yet.”

Square Enix announced the first round of Tomb Raider DLC earlier this week. Arriving on March 19, the Caves & Cliffs multiplayer map pack will be a timed Xbox 360 exclusive release.

    This game is GOTY material. Might even make it into my Top 5 of All Time list.
