Kazakhstan is one of the locations in Tomb Raider: Legend. It is an Eastern European nation, the 9th largest country on Earth and the largest landlocked country. A former member nation of the Eastern Bloc and the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan was a site of a number of major Soviet military and scientific projects, including hosting the Soviet Union's primary nuclear weapons testing site.

Alister has his moment to shine by finding obscure references suggesting that more answers might be found in Kazakhstan. A secret Soviet laboratory was dedicated to investigating the paranormal early in the Cold War, and judging by how quickly and savagely the lab was shut down and covered up by the KGB, indications are that the relics they found were indeed what Lara is searching for. Only Lara isn't the only one who's learned of the site, and she braces herself for what might turn out to be a very uncomfortable reunion.
