Eidos announces that the multi-million selling Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness is coming to Sony’s PlayStation 2 Platinum range. Originally released in June 2003, Lara Croft’s chart-topping epic adventure, her first on PlayStation 2, will be available from April 9th 2004. Accused of the murder of her former mentor, Werner Von Croy, Lara becomes a fugitive on the run. In an attempt to clear her name, she has no choice but to confront the secret alliance whose destiny it is to take over the world. With explosive action and a gripping story, Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness is Lara’s most dangerous adventure yet.

Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness introduces a whole host of new gameplay features including interaction with other characters and the ability to improve Lara’s strength and speed depending on how well you play the game. This character evolution will reward the more adventurous player by enabling them to climb or leap into areas that were previously inaccessible. For the first time in a Tomb Raider game there is a second playable character for you to control - Kurtis Trent, who you play as for certain parts of the game.

The adventure begins with Lara travelling to Paris following a phone call from Von Croy. She arrives to find the city paralysed with fear, and Von Croy the latest victim in a series of horrific murders. Travelling through Paris and Prague Lara uncovers the terrifying world of the alchemist Eckhardt, and his plot to reawaken the powers of the ancient race of the Nephilim. Lara finds herself not only the hunter, but also the hunted. In her struggle to unravel the trail left by Von Croy, Lara gets drawn into a world of underworld deals, grotesque murders, the dark side of an advanced form of alchemy and a history of blood, betrayal and vengeance spanning across hundreds of years.
