Tomb Raider creators Core Design are looking to expand their predominately male workforce by encouraging female gamers to apply to help the firm iron out creases in the latest Lara Croft Tomb Raider adventure The Angel Of Darkness and future projects.

PR manager Gary Reading told the BBC he wants to encourage more computer literate women to apply for games testing appointments after receiving a torrent of applications from male gamers. "We really don't know why women are not coming forward, but there is a special type of logic to testing the game and women would be very strong at it. Men and women's brains work differently and we want every different angle covered. A women's mind would bring a different angle to the game."

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness employs a brand new engine built to fully exploit the terrain-based power of Sony's PlayStation 2 games console and the latest PC graphics cards. Lara Croft returns as both hunter and hunted relying on her ingenuity, athleticism and a new edge that has arisen from her dark inner demons. The sixth title in the phenomenally successful Tomb Raider franchise is penned for release November 15th, but mandatory teasing will probably see a December debut more likely.

UPDATE: Core Design would like to thank everyone that has applied for the position of games tester. Unfortunately due to the enormous response we have had to close this window of opportunity. We can no longer accept applications for the position of games tester. Thanks to everyone for their interest and we hope you all like the game.
