British stage veteran and prolific actor Joss Ackland will lend his vocal talents to Core Design for this years most anticipated videogame debut - Lara Croft Tomb Raider The Angel Of Darkness. His commanding voice will project life into Pieter Van Eckhardt, an unscrupulous alchemist bent on mutant production and the orchestration of a repugnant criminal fraternity.

Joss Ackland won critical acclaim in 1987 following his portrayal of a decadent aristocrat in Michael Radford's White Mischief, a cinematic masterpiece depicting the exploits of an expatriate community and their social misgivings during World War II. He also attracted attention for his portrayal of author CS Lewis in the movie Shadowlands. Joss Ackland's most recent accolade was the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) rewarding the London-born actor for 50 years in the industry.

Ackland joins a heavily guarded cast for Core Design's sixth Tomb Raider adventure starring British aristocrat Lara Croft. Accused of the murder of her one time mentor, Werner Von Croy, Lara becomes a fugitive on the run. Pursued by the police, she follows the Alchemist into a dark world of blood, betrayal and vengeance. Lara Croft Tomb Raider The Angel Of Darkness has been billed to make its commercial debut November 2002, although mandatory teasing will probably push the release back to December.
