[ March 23rd 2002 ]

Core Design's Operations Director Adrian Smith has confirmed a second team of programmers and designers have already begun work on the next installment of The Angel Of Darkness while team one continues to finalise episode one ready for it's December 3rd commercial debut.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness is classic Lara as both hunter and hunted relying on her ingenuity, athleticism and a new edge that has arisen from her dark inner demons. However, this time she faces more evolved characters and situations, calling for more involved decision-making. Lara now has the ability to interact with characters and the choice of which path to take. Upgrading her trademark style and look and dropping her into a bombshell scenario calls for a new resourcefulness making her a stronger and more complex heroine.

"Our vision is to take the player somewhere dark, a place they might not necessarily wish to go, but a place they will have to venture if they are to bring Lara back." Adrian Smith says, "Lara will have some tough moral choices to make. It's no longer a clear-cut case of good versus evil - this is a more complex tale, which will ask more complex questions of the player. It will be a new experience for people who have played Tomb Raider in the past."

Smith also confirmed during the official unveiling of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness that his Derbyshire based studios will have more input in the 2003 release of Paramount Pictures Lara Croft Tomb Raider sequel which retains the acting services of Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie and British Red Dwarf star Chris Barrie. The original movie weathered the full force of a critical assault last year and almost annihilated eight years of character development with poor direction, a weak script and transparent performances from some of the cast.

Paramount Pictures will once again distribute the Lara Croft Tomb Raider movie sequel which begins principle photography at Pinewood Studios after the Bond 20 camp conclude shooting special effects. Two movie scripts have reportedly been written. The Lara Croft Tomb Raider sequel will make it's silver-screen debut Summer 2003 supported by an army of sponsors and corporate partners all eager to cash in on the Lara Croft phenomenon.
