The sequel will continue Lara Croft’s struggle against the nefarious organization Trinity, who send an equally hardened new operative to take her out. Lanzing told Polygon that in “Survivor’s Crusade,” they had “been slowly sharpening the weapon that is Lara Croft. Now, in ‘Inferno,’ Lara’s unleashing that weapon against the enemy. Trinity’s only hope lies in a weapon of their own — a new character who hits our story like a wrecking ball in Issue #1.”
The co-writer also promised the comic will contain “the oldest tomb in the world — a seemingly endless pit that only gets more and more incredible and mysterious the further down you go.”
