Lara Croft: Relic Run is coming to Windows Phone soon

Lara Croft: Relic Run, starring the lead character from the Tomb Raider game series, will be released worldwide on Windows Phone and other platforms in the coming months. Publisher Square Enix and Tomb Raider's main developer Crystal Dynamics are working with mobile game developer Simutronics on this new free-to-play title.

Square Enix says:

Many of you have correctly mused that Relic Run is an adventure runner, and at its core it is, but we feel that it's much more than that. Relic Run offers a massive amount of diversity in play, allowing for seamless transitions between acrobatic-inspired running, combat, vehicles, and epic boss fights, including but not limited to the return of the infamous T-Rex.Like the other games in the Lara Croft brand, Relic Run will scratch your itch for nostalgic play – big adventure, over-the-top action, and loads of collectibles coupled with fast-paced play.

This new game will likely be released for Windows Phone before Rise of the Tomb Raider, the next major console game in the series from Crystal Dynamics, is released first for Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms sometime in late 2015.

  • Better have xbl integration or its a no go for me. We need more games with that feature!
  • Agree 100%
  • Nah, Xbl should not exist. Can you earn something from it? Just challenging those bastards.
  • I just wanna see that ass wiggle...
  • Yep, Xbox Live is woefully underused. It's a great community for gamers. I've had a few friends look at my gaming history and comment on these games they've never heard of.
    I'm guessing many Windows Phone fans are Xbox fans too.
  • I good use for Xbox Live would be if you're a gold member you get automatic cloud game save synching, just like on Xbox One.
  • I really think they need to just open it up to everyone on mobile/desktop (and even xbox, why not) like Google and Apple have done with Google Play acheivements and GameCenter acheivements.   That said, I freak out about anything Tomb Raider so I will be getting this particular game whether it is xbox or not.
  • They are opening it up. Their self-publish program for independent developers--ID(at)Xbox--has already been announced for Windows 10, including phone development. That said, if you kind folk want to see more Xbox games on Windows Phone, be sure to check out the #SaveXboxWP thread here, and, for this specific game, tweet to @SquareEnix letting them know. You could also support them by purchasing their current Xbox games on WP.
  • I could be wrong, but I don't think the id at xbox program is opening it up the same way that Apple and Google have. UPDATE: Yep, looks like you have to apply for id@xbox - pretty sure with Play/GameCenter anybody can add acheivements to their game without having to get approval first.
  • Run again? I thought some action game
  • Another runner game.
  • But a fine wee ass, er, lass she is..
  • Now, to see if the WP community will support a developer that supports the platform by voting with their wallets, comments, and interest. Let's hope so.
  • It's cooler to complain about Snapchat ya know...
  • Wen in India?
  • Real tired of this crap
  • How about "Wen in Somalia?" Then.
  • If we were Burger King, talking about burgers, this would make sense ...
  • Well, if they make something better than that. I don't need yet another runner.
  • If I try the wrong key would she say 'nope'? And is the old butler that follows me through the labyrinth garden in there?
  • Looks like another fugly prequel
  • I am totally in on this one!
  • Lara is hot.
  • Lovely username...
  • Probably won't be available here in Brazil. None of the Square Enix WP 's Games are available.
  • Lara Croft continues to have hot thighs.
  • Look higher up, tis more to be seen..
  • Just emailed them asking for xbox support  
  • Best Man
  • **Free-to-Pay
    ^more appropriate name for so called 'free-to-play' games.
  • But please alow for 512mb and offline mode
  • I'm onboard with this.
  • +635
  • NBA 2K15 would be great to play on my 1520... I wish we had that game!!!
  • We also need from square Enix to bring other final fantasy games to windows phone....we hope that !
  • If Temple Run and Minion Rush have both Xbox LIVE integration, not having it on Relic Run would be a shame and quite ironic.
  • another runner.square enix should have brought their action games(mini ninjas,deus ex among others) which are already released in other mobile platforms ; into wp platform not this one mehhh
  • This is HUGE!
  • Microsoft!!! Where's Forza Windows Windows Mobile??? Asphalt 8 from the Gameloft isn't over the World... Seriously.
  • I want achievements.
  • We are ready...  
  • Is this for free? If not how much would this be??
