Chronology

In which order to play Tomb Raider: all the games of the Lara Croft sagas

We compile all the video games starring the intrepid and resourceful Lara Croft through her three great sagas, from her beginnings to the most recent ones.

Since its beginnings, Tomb Raider practically became an icon of video game culture, even crossing the medium to star in series, movies, video clips, merchandising, comics and more. With the aim of revolutionizing three-dimensional action and platform adventures, Core Design and Eidos Interactive completed in 1996 a first installment that became a true benchmark of the genre. The franchise started with the classic Tomb Raider to give way to a handful of sequels that kept the puzzles and platforms as the central axis of their adventures. From then on, numerous installments followed in the most varied platforms, giving rise to three sagas of Lara Croft video games that we detail below so that you can play the Tomb Raider titles in order:
