E3 2014: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris revealed with first exciting footageWritten by: / / 6 Comments
In addition to the announcement of an all-new adventure for Lara Croft in Rise of the Tomb Raider, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have announced a brand new isometric action game to follow on from the excellent Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC at an undetermined time in the future, is a four-player co-operative game with a new story where players must work together to “explore the temple, defeat hordes of enemies from the Egyptian underworld, solve devious puzzles, and avoid deadly traps.”
Here’s the story set up:
“Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris takes place deep in the deserts of Egypt. In her new adventure, Lara must join forces with rival treasure hunter Carter Bell and imprisoned gods Horus and Isis, to defeat the evil god Set.
“As Lara and her companions fight the elements of nature across the sands and through ancient tombs, they will battle legendary deities and creatures of myth. With the fate of the world at stake, Lara must recover the fragments of Osiris to stop Set from enslaving all mankind.”
Head of Product Development and Western Studios, Darrell Gallagher, said of the game:
“After the immensely positive reception we received for our debut co-op adventure Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, we always hoped that we would find the time for Lara to return in another classic AAA digital arcade title.
“We are excited to expand upon Guardian of Light’s legacy with an entirely new adventure, and challenged ourselves to create fun new ways to play. Four-player co-op in Lara’s world combined with Crystal Dynamics’ high production values are being brought to a new generation of platforms and we are excited for more friends to share in the adventure together.”
