Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness Trailer at Gamespy
12:32 PM | Daniel Meissner | Comment on this story
Gamespy.com has released a trailer of the much anticipated new chapter of the Tomb Raider series, Angel of Darkness. It is available for download now at their FilePlanet servers, and is just under 30 MB in size and in a QuickTime compatible mpeg format.
The trailer starts off in a highly cinematic series of cut scenes of the highest quality. Mixed with the movie quality sound score, it introduces you to Laura the Anti-Hero vs the adventure gal we all know and love. As if this was not cool enough, it then jumps into a series of game play shots that are quite exciting. Apart from the standard fare of death defying leaps, dual pistols blazing in protracted gun fights with SWAT teams, and other old school Laura goodness, it also exhibits the stealth aspects, and hand to hand combat. Most striking is Laura creeping up on some suit with a pistol and snapping his neck in a way that makes an old soldier like me just grin ear to ear.
This is just a limited highlight of the most impressive elements shown in the 2:30 clip. All of it has textures, rendering, and motion capture that far outpaces the fairly polished, but dated look of Last Revelation. So for those of you who thought Laura got into a graphic rut, no worries, she is new and improved. Unfortunately there is no news as to the possibilities of Laura's new adventure coming to the Mac, but keep checking here for further developments.
