Geocaching to provide Tomb Raider-themed adventures

If you're the kind of person into real-life adventuring, chances are you know exactly what Geocaching is. In fact, just that name may have made you shout out, "You found a cache, where the hell is it?" But for those who haven't got a clue, Geocaching is basically a real-life treasure hunting game where you need to find things called "geocaches" which are quite literally scattered across the entire damn planet. Anyone can participate, and once you've found one you can sign a logbook and take a gander at what other adventurers participating have left. Right now there are about 1.5 million of these caches to find. I'm not kidding.

The team behind the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, Crystal Dynamics, has announced that it will be collaborating with Geocaching.com to create Tomb Raider-themed adventures using both the Geocaching format and the new "Geocaching Challenges" which focuses more on pictures. Nothing more was really announced, such as exact dates or what participants will be getting out of this, but Square Enix did say that these adventures will be "embodying the spirit of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft's drive to become and explorer." It all actually sounds quite fun.
