This week, we have assets for the new Lara Croft adventure, Lara Croft Relic Run, coming soon to mobile platforms. With an abundance of "Temple Run" type games on the market, Lara Croft is actually the perfect choice for a Temple Run type of game, and from what's been shown so far, it looks like this game really takes the Temple Run concept to the next level. From what we've seen so far, this is not your typical Temple Run game - it really is a Tomb Raider game, and it looks incredible.

I love the environments shown so far - having a variety of unique environments is really an important part of what makes a Tomb Raider game exciting.

Below you'll find official artwork and screenshots. The screenshots shown are from the iPad version of the game, as they were the highest resolution screenshots available. I'll update this article as soon as this game is released and I have the chance to play it. While there isn't a release date yet, it's already had a soft release in the Netherlands for testing and feedback.

UPDATE 4/17/15: We have some official Q&A straight from Crystal Dynamics. As more information continues to be unveiled about Lara Croft: Relic Run, we'll post it here!

Q: "I play Temple Run from time to time and there is an in-game store to buy power-ups. Is there any in this game?"
A: In order to streamline the game experience on this platform, we have combined the inventory with an in-game shop. Items are available at all times and can be bought either with in-game credits which you can earn by playing, or by purchasing with real money. Players do not have to spend any money to have a complete game experience.

Q: "Will the game be launching worldwide in weeks? Months?"
A: We are currently in soft launch to test and make sure the game works perfectly for the user. Once we are happy with this we will launch globally, making sure we are giving players the best experience possible.

Q: "I would like to know if they will add Core Design's low-poly Lara like Crystal did on LCTOO as unlockable or bonus outfits?"
A: Nothing has been announced as of yet but we will have more news in the coming months.

Q: "Will my Galaxy S4 be supported?"
A: Lara Croft: Relic Run is a high end mobile game so some older devices will not be supported as we couldn't guarantee a good player experience. We will support iPhone 4s and above. The S4 will be supported too.

Q: "What is the Curse system?"
A: The curse system is one of the many things unique to Lara Croft: Relic Run. Not only can you compete with your friends for high score, coins collected, distance etc. but you can also send curse to friends to ruin their run!

Q: "How long is Lara Croft: Relic Run?"
A: The game is infinite. Each time you play you will encounter a different experience with various diverse routes and hidden areas to uncover along the way.

Q: "What languages will be supported?"
A: Currently Lara Croft: Relic Run will support English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Brazilian Portuguese at launch.
