Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have announced a release window for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, which is still known simply as Tomb Raider, as part of Microsoft's E3 2011 press conference.

Square Enix is targeting an Autumn 2012 release window.

A new trailer and the first hints of gameplay were shown as part of the conference and, while we don't have video available yet, you can still check out the latest trailer below.

The gameplay section Crystal Dynamics showed at the conference involved Lara being chased through a network of underground passages, avoiding traps before emerging into the open.

The new Tomb Raider reboot sees Lara recast as a young woman out in search of adventure, but who ends up shipwrecked on a mysterious island with vicious inhabitants. Crystal Dynamics has described the game as a new origin story for the character.

Check out the trailer below - there are more in the trailers section! - and let us know your thoughts in the forums.
