'Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals' novel continues reboot's story Oct. 20

The sequel to 2013's Tomb Raider won't be out until late 2015, but this fall, the original game's story will continue in a novel called Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals, publisher BradyGames announced recently.

Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals will pick up Lara Croft's tale immediately following her harrowing adventure on Yamatai in Crystal Dynamics' well-received reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. Croft's best friend, Sam, is dying from a toxic overdose of some kind, and it's up to her to save Sam's life. She hears of an ancient artifact that, legend has it, could heal her friend — and explain the supernatural nature of Yamatai. Croft sets out on a globe-spanning race against time, as well as a shadowy organization that will stop at nothing to find the relic first.

According to Brady Games, authors Dan Abnett and Nik Vincent wrote the novel's story in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics, and the book will become part of the current Tomb Raider canon. Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals is scheduled to be available Oct. 20; you can pre-order the book from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million and others.

Crystal Dynamics announced its own sequel to Tomb Raider during E3 2014. Called Rise of the Tomb Raider, the action game is set for release in holiday 2015 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
