[ April 22nd 2005 ]
enthusiast magazine 'Hobby Consolas' has revealed
new details on Tomb Raider Legend including the
guarded technical specs attached to newly overhauled
Lara Croft - now under the aegis of Crystal Dynamics.
According to the magazine, Lara Croft is now composed
of 9800 polygons that are positively dripping
realism, instead of the 4400 attached to the model
used in The Angel Of Darkness.
on the control system, Hobby Consolas reveals
that although Lara's control will differ considerably
from that in AOD, "it won't be difficult to learn
because it will keep Tomb Raider's classic style",
adhering to the original properties of Tomb Raider
as mooted by Eidos last year.
interactivity will be higher than ever, and attention
to detail will include the soiling of apparel
during the course of Lara's adventures. Although
the actual storyline has been cloaked in a veil
of secrecy, we now learn that Lara Croft will
trapeze across the skyline of Malaysia in what
appears to be a high-tech level. Crystal Dynamics
will also use the latest video-game technology
to create an ambient mood throughout the game
with the use of sophisticated lighting techniques.
for use along the way include a battery of weapons,
a magnetic rope, binoculars, fragmentation grenades,
portable lighting equipment and Lara's trusted
communications system which no doubt will tap
a commercial tie-in with a popular mobile phone
