[ April 8th 2003 ]

There's been a lot of fury and speculation shrouding the release of Core Design's sixth Tomb Raider installment The Angel Of Darkness, with most of the confusion propagated by the many online stores each bartering for your business. Allow us to set the record straight. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness has been scheduled to release sometime during Eidos' fourth fiscal quarter. This means their financial year, which ends June 31st 2003, and not the fourth quarter of the calendar year.

Despite the complete utter madness of many online stores and retailers, for the reasons outlined above, AOD is expected to hit the shelves sometime in late Q4. Both developer and publisher have confirmed no changes to these plans are in the pipeline. Our money is on a mid-June commercial debut. Guard your pennies well, and don't fall foul of merchandising enticement... you'll still be receiving your game the same time as everyone else. [Insert following sound byte to pack out article]

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness asks more questions of Lara's abilities and motivations as she finds herself in nightmarish situations she has not faced before. As both hunter and hunted she must rely on her ingenuity, athleticism and a new harder edge that has arisen from her inner demons. For Lara it's no longer a clear-cut case of good versus evil, this is a more complex tale in which she will have moral choices to make for the first time.
