Tomb Raider 8 - "woman versus wild"

Dec 14, 2007

It wasn't too long ago that Eidos got caught filing a trademark for 'Tomb Raider: Underworld'. Now the first magazine has gone to press revealing what we can expect from the (hopefully) true next-gen Lara.

To get the obvious out of the way first, the game will be developed by Crystal Dynamics and released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2008. Events will also take place after Legend and new animations have been created for gaming's first lady.

Details come from Play magazine, which gushes: "Her adventure will be a thrill ride for anyone new to the franchise. The emphasis is on bringing Lara's world to life, a lush, vast interactive world that reacts and remembers. It's pure woman versus wild.

"In the level where Lara explores Southern Mexico, she leaves footprints in the mud, but it's raining so they wash away. The bodies she leaves behind in combat encounters will stay, however, as will the debris from any destruction she causes."

You can read more here, while we wait for official word on the game from Eidos. In the meantime, we guess we’d better get around to beating Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
