Tomb Raider: Legend Revealed
9:00 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
The newly-revived Eidos has announced the next installment in the Tomb Raider franchise, entitled Tomb Raider: Legend. The new game will go back to the tomb raiding roots of the franchise, after Lara's latest adventure, the less-than-stellar Angel of Darkness, found our heroine in Paris sneaking around ala Solid Snake.
Eidos talks about the process from which came the ideas for the new game installment:
Eighteen months ago, Tomb Raider team members at Crystal Dynamics embarked on their own quest to rediscover Lara Croft. During their soul-searching mission, they unearthed past consumer surveys, conducted new research, re-read every game review, listened to lots of passionate pleas and opinions from gamers and re-played through every Tomb Raider product. From this introspection and open-minded search for a fresh perspective, Tomb Raider: Legend was born.Changes to the series are reported to include a redesigned character model for Ms. Croft, including a... ahem... more natural character design. New animations and new equipment will add to the adventure.
Eidos will be releasing Tomb Raider: Legend on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. No official announcement has been made as to the availability of the Macintosh version, but previous installments of the series have made it our way. Stay with IMG for any new information on the Tomb Raider series as it becomes available.
