The company made the announcement in a YouTube video today (below), which takes viewers inside Graves' Raleigh, North Carolina home and shows off some of the instruments used for the soundtrack.

In addition to creating the music for all three Dead Space titles and numerous other video games, Graves' work is also featured in television and film. Some of his TV credits include The Amazing Race and America's Most Wanted, while his work can be found in movie trailers for G.I. Jane and Mercury Rising.

The Tomb Raider reboot--which spans 12-15 hours--is due March 5, 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It was originally planned to launch during fall 2012.

Tomb Raider is the first installment in the series since 2010's downloadable multiplayer-focused Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and the first standalone game since 2008's Tomb Raider: Underworld.
