Tomb Raider release date outed in new trailer

Yeah, we were sad when Tomb Raider got bumped out of 2012 too. It looked awesome, and was one of our most anticipated games of the year, so seeing it slip just out of reach... it was rough. Luckily, with E3 a few days away, we've been given a fancy new trailer to pine over, as well as a firm date to circle on our Lara Croft "Girls of Tomb Raiding" calender.

March 5, 2013 is the new date for Crystal Dynamic's exciting Tomb Raider. Not sure why we keep saying words like "exciting" and "cool" and "awesome" and "dirty" when describing the new Tomb Raider? Check out the trailer above, which shows off more of the game than we've ever seen, and we think you'll agree on all fronts.

Especially dirty - with all the swimming that's going on in that video you'd expect at least some of the sludge to wash off, right?
