For generations, stories have been told about the thunder god Thor and not least about his legendary hammer. Legend has it that whoever holds the hammer will have the ability to pulverize mountains and turn them into valleys and the strength to take down even the greatest gods. For more than 1000 years, however, the hammer has been nothing more than a myth...that is, until now.
In an Old Norse ruin at the bottom of the Mediterranean, Lara Croft finds the final proof of the existence of the underworld of Norse mythology and the fabled hammer. As she tries to uncover the secrets behind the myths, the perilous journey leads her into the arms of forgotten forces that, if unleashed, could destroy all civilization.
