TOMB RAIDER 7 TO BE UNVEILED FEB?

[ January 17th 2005 ]

The wait is almost over! According to a post on www.tombraiderforums.com, PS2M will sensationally unveil the forthcoming Tomb Raider adventure from newly appointed franchise caretaker Crystal Dynamics next month. "STOP PRESS: TOMB RAIDER RETURNS" is advertised as billing the February issue of PS2M. This revelation would support whisperings that Eidos are to unveil the new Tomb Raider on or around February 14th, Lara's virtual birthday.

This time around - and rather surprisingly - Eidos has maintained an effective shut-down on all information leaks surrounding their leading franchise title, although sparse details were revealed middle of last year in an interview with PS2 Magazine. Back then, an early build of Tomb Raider 7 had been mobilised with core elements funded by the Soul Reaver graphics engine. That engine, said Eidos, had been tinkered with to include the introduction of vehicles that would assist problem solving elements in the game.

Eidos also revealed that Crystal Dynamics intended to restore the original properties of Lara Croft - ardent Tomb Raider, procurer of all things ancient - and a game reminiscent of the original title from Core Design. A feel akin to Prince Of Persia's agility and level design was also mooted.
