The attraction will launch on May 9 and will see Vikander reprising her role as the nimble archaeologist for voiceovers that users will experience during there journey as part of the Tomb Raider: The Experience. She’ll coordinate with groups to help them avoid catastrophe, and will be joined by pals Jonah Maiava (Early Baylon) and Zip (Allen Maldonado).
Little Lion Entertainment Limited’s CEO & Founder, Tom Lionetti-Maguire, commented:
It’s not long until we officially open our doors to guests and they get to experience Tomb Raider: The LIVE Experience! Having Alicia embody Lara in the experience just made sense, as we wanted someone who understands the adventurous and resilient Lara Croft.
Tomb Raider: The Live Experience will see up to eight raiders joining Croft as she attempts to recover a precious artefact from falling into the wrong hands.
Along the way, you’ll escape a sinking ship, hit up the lush jungles of Costa Rica, and discover an accent tomb, all the while solving environmental puzzles and battling against a nefarious, secret order in a blood-pumping adventure.
In related news, developer Crystal Dynamics announced earlier this month it is working on a brand new entry in the Tomb Raider franchise, which will utilise the Unreal Engine 5.
