In addition to the announcement of Rise of the Tomb Raider this morning at Microsoft’s E3 briefing, it was also announced that a second game centered around Lara Croft is coming in the near future. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a direct sequel to 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,” said Darrell Gallagher, head of product development and western studios, said in a press release. “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.”
Temple of Osiris will, like its predecessor, feature top-down gameplay based on exploration and solving puzzles. New to the franchise, however, is the addition of four-player co-op gameplay that will allow users to play with their friends in this unique experience.
Mike’s Musings: You can never have enough Lara Croft. I think the popularity of the last two installments proved that. Hopefully, Temple of Osiris lives up to the hype.
