Wei Liu, a conceptual artist at Crystal Dynamics,
has published some illustrations on her web site
which bear an uncanny resemblance to an earlier
leaked brief on Tomb Raider 9. Spotted by
a member of Tomb Raider Forums, both artworks
depict a lush tropical setting.
to the brief: "When a sudden storm destroys
her research vessel, a young and inexperienced
Lara Croft finds herself stranded on a mysterious
and remote island hidden off the shores of Japan.
Despite several signs of various inhabitants the
island is oddly deserted, and an uneasy feeling
settles in as strange sounds emerge from the shadows.
only her determination, inner strength, and resourcefulness
to help her, Lara must overcome the challenges
of a harsh and unforgiving journey that will take
her across a vast island wilderness and deep into
the claustrophobic and menacing underground tombs
from the island's past."
