It's always a good sign when a game goes through the certification process and finally goes gold. Let's give a big ol' congratulatory fist-bump to Lara Croft and the team at Crystal Dynamics for getting Tomb Raider ready for our consumption.
Karl Stewart, Global Brand Director at Crystal Dynamics and Square-Enix, tweeted a picture of the very first retail version of the game to be birthed from the production line. You can sneak a peek at the disc, which happens to be the Xbox 360 version and features the same artwork as the cover.
As we've seen in The Final Hours videos, the team(s) have worked hard to bring us the first chapter in Lara's life as a Tomb Raider, having spent the last four years developing both the single-player campaign and the multiplayer mode.
Now all we have to do is wait until March 5th, 2013 to get our hands on the game and help Lara survive her rebirth as a genuine badass.
