Tomb Raider video chronicles the final, final hours of development

A video released today shows what it was like during the last week of development on Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics' upcoming reboot of the action game franchise.

Watch the video above to see how Crystal Dynamics, the 20-year old development studio, worked out everything from the last few hundred bugs to the promotional materials at a time when some were pulling all-nighters.

Tomb Raider is set for release next Tuesday, March 5, on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. For more on the game, be sure to check out Polygon's Tomb Raider review from earlier this week. You can see the game in motion and learn about how Russ Frushtick treats adorable woodland creatures in a recent episode of Today I Played.
