"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.
I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory.
I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the shield that guards the realms of men.
I pledge my life and honor to the Icy Tower, for this night and all the nights to come."
~ George R. R. Martin

Far to the North a giant tower has been built in order to prevent souls from coming back to this world. It was called the Icy Tower. Over centuries armies of warriors swore an oath to never lower their guard, protect the tower from the dead and keep the living safe. It was not until thousands years later that a newly positioned leader grew tired of his duty and tried to flee with his men. They abandoned their oath and therefore became cursed. And so they were forced to stay in the Icy Tower forever till the end of time. Nowadays there are more demons in the world than ever. Lara Croft believes that an axe belonging to an unnamed norse god, the founder of the Icy Tower, is the key artefact to bring back peace. If it was placed on Earth, the demons would retreat once and for all. And so she sets off to the border between the world of the living and the world of the dead. She must face her own fears and retrieve the axe. Her deeds will remind the guardians, how one should fullfill his oath.
