TOMB RAIDER NEXT

[ September 6th 2000 ]
no real official word has fed the growing appetite
of gamers across the globe, Tomb Raider Next Generation
is finding it's way onto forums across the web,
with speculation and rumour painting a very different
picture of Lara Croft and her new adventure and
direction. This taken from the official Eidos
Interactive forums: "Lara’s back, this time with
a ton of attitude, a longer ponytail, a more detailed
body, facial features and aimed at a entirely
new age group. These are the very first details
of the Sony Play Station 2 version of the game,
and you should prepare yourself for Lara as you’ve
never seen her before."
to Core boss Adrian Smith, Lara "is forced into
something. We can’t say what yet. Art theft plays
a big part, and you should be thinking along the
lines of, ‘Vampires have walked with us for centuries’.
Except it isn’t Vampires." FMV of the game show
Lara pilfering the Mona Lisa, gassing guards and
running through stunning environments. A dungeon
is shown with manacles hanging from the ceiling,
and a scene shows Lara escaping the truncheon-laden
caress of the riot police."
a recent interview with IGN, Core Design's Adrian
Smith said The next-generation versions of the
game will feature a much darker, X-Files-esque
kind of atmosphere. Each of the new titles will
be self-contained but reveal part of a larger
puzzle that you'll only piece together by buying
all of the new games and playing them through.
As technology pushes the frontier of smoother
and more fluid movement, we can expect a dramatic
change in visual and mechanical architecture.
Tomb Raider Next Generation is due for release
in 2001. The final instalment from Eidos ending
"Lara as we know her" will be this Christmas'
release of Tomb Raider Chronicles.
