Lara Croft joins endless runner craze in Relic Run

Who needs a Temple Runner when you have a Tomb Runner?

Yet another popular video game franchise will be getting the endless runner treatment as Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have announced Lara Croft: Relic Run.

Lara Croft: Relic Run is being developed by Simutronics, a mobile games studio that has experience in the endless runner genre with its One Epic Knight. Relic Run is being touted as an “adventure runner” and will allow players to seamlessly transition between freerunning, combat vehicles, and boss fights, one of which may or may not involve a T-Rex.

The game has been soft launched on both iOS and Android in the Netherlands this morning and is expecting to launch as a free-to-play game globally in the coming months on iOS, Android, and Windows 8 Phone.

      This seems like a natural fit, but I'm just so done with these cash grabs. Make it a nominally paid app and ditch all the iap bogus stuff. And, stop making the app with making it necessary (for the sake of sanity) to spend money.

        Why would a business want to make less money?

          What's the proof that it would make less money as a paid app vs f2p dependent on whales?

            The proof is probably that apps that are f2p seem to make boatloads of cash compared to to not f2p apps. Its probably why they are becoming ever popular.

              I think we haven't found the balance. The .99¢ crazy damaged the market. EA and their $15 price is going too far the other direction. The balance is the cost of development against mass purchase at a reasonable price point. EA's argument is that the FF games are full ports. But other mobile games aren't so may not command as high a price.

              I think $5 is about right for what I usually get out of a game.
