Tomb Raider: Underworld, also known as Tomb Raider 8, is the eighth game in the Tomb Raider series, released in November 2008. It is the third game in the series to be developed by Crystal Dynamics. Underworld resumes the adventure from where Tomb Raider: Legend left off and addresses elements of the plot left unexplained in Tomb Raider: Legend and Tomb Raider: Anniversary.

The gameplay is much more different from the previous two tomb raider games. As example, Lara's environment will be an "interactive world that reacts and remembers", such that footprints left in the mud or mud transferred to Lara's knee from kneeling on the ground will be washed away by rain, the bodies of the foes she encounters will remain where she killed them, and any destruction to the environment she causes will be permanent. Lara Croft now can jump from wall to wall (just like in Prince of Persia). This instalment also features a new melee combat system, requiring Lara in some instances to use "direct combat and evasive manoeuvres to distance herself from her attacker". Lara can also split up her guns and fire at two different targets simultaneously, or hold an item with one hand and fire a gun with the other. The grappling hook can now be stretched taut and used to pull objects off ledges unlike in previous series. In cutscenes from previous titles, there were specific button presses; but now, time slows down and gives the player a chance to get out of the way while retaining the full control of Lara. Among the weapons there are now Pistol, Sub-machine gun, Assault rifle, Shotgun, Tranqualiser gun, Harpoon & Sticky grenades. Now players are even can choose her outfit before a mission starts.

The story begins when Lara Croft is seen in the lower corridor of Croft Manor where Lara has to escape from a fire. After passing a few obstacle; game flashes back a week into the past, showing Lara in the Mediterranean Sea. Lara is searching for a way to Avalon, the mythical resting place of King Arthur, and the place where Amanda claimed Lara's mother is. Lara finds a temple of "Proto-Norse" origin, leading her to believe that Avalon and the Norse underworld of Niflheim are one and the same. She also finds a gauntlet that belonged to the Norse god Thor. She meets her old nemesis Jacqueline Natla, whom Amanda has in captivity. Natla states that Avalon is the same as Helheim, rather than Niflheim as Lara had supposed, and that Lara will need Thor's hammer, Mj.
