Microgaming set to bring Lara Croft back to life with latest instalment of Tomb Raider
Microgaming has announced that they will celebrate their 15-year-long partnership with Square Enix with the renewal of the agreement and third Lara Croft slot.
The third instalment of the Tomb Raider online slot will be launched at Microgaming’s stand at 2019 ICE Totally Gaming that takes place in London in February.
Celebration of a Successful Partnership
The latest adventure-themed slot is believed to take its inspiration from the 2018 blockbuster movie starring Alicia Vikander as Lara. For any game details, we will have to wait for the official release since the company is keeping all the details under the wraps.
“We are incredibly excited to announce the renewal of our historic partnership with Square Enix to develop a new Lara Croft online slot game that honours and builds on the brand’s massive popularity in the gaming industry, film and beyond” Andrew Clucas, chief operating officer at Microgaming, said.
“This year is our 15th anniversary with the brand and we plan to celebrate the unprecedented milestone with a wave of big reveals on another show-stopping stand at ICE.”
The third Lara Croft online slot will come ten years after the second and fifteen years after the first part.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider was released in 2004 as the industry-first branded slot. Microgaming developed a sequel Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword in 2008 and now Triple Edge Studios will develop a brand new adventurous slot exclusively for Microgaming. The fearless heroine will once again rely on her sharp mind, blind faith and stubborn spirit as she takes players on solving yet another mystery.
Janet Swallow, vice president of licensing at Square Enix West, added: “We look forward to continue working with Microgaming to develop another successful branded online slot game.
“We are excited to see a new action-packed Lara Croft adventure launch to the igaming world and look forward to the big reveal at ICE 2019.”
Since Lara Croft has become a pop-culture icon with a franchise featuring movies, products, merchandise and online slots, the upcoming slot is expected to become a massive success. The game’s official title will be released alongside other big reveals at ICE in February.
