The first full week of March 2013 sees some big-hitters dropping, with the rebooted cliff-climbing survival story of Tomb Raider and SimCity finally arriving.

Tomb Raider (5 March 2013)

Lara’s much-needed reboot is finally arriving this week, and if the international reviews of Tomb Raider are anything to go by, then we’re in for a great return from the treasure hunter.

The reboot is set to put a 21 year-old Lara in the fight of her life as she is shipwrecked on an unknown island, forced to deal with excruciating emotional and physical pain to survive.

Check out more Tomb Raider coverage.

SimCity (8 March 2013)

SimCity finally returns this week with a new look for a new generation.

It’s been a while since PC gamers have had a SimCity game, and the new iteration, running on Maxis’ new Glassbox engine, is expected to bring a new level of detail and fidelity to the series.

SimCity will support “tens of thousands” of units (people and vehicles) each with their own self-contained simulation logic and can all be moving at once.

Multiplayer features will include cloud saves and persistent statistics. Multiplayer will use an asynchronous server model. Interactions with friends (or foe) will be possible without being simultaneously online.
