UPDATE: The game now has an official launch date, 9th December 2014, and Square Enix have confirmed that it will be available for the PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One only. A number of gameplay demos can be found over on IGN’s website.
If the announcement about the follow-up to Tomb Raider 2013 wasn’t enough, you’ll be glad to hear that Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix will also be releasing a sequel to the popular co-op game, Lara Croft & the Guardian of Light in the not-too-distant future!
The Egypt-centric Lara Croft & the Temple of Osiris will allow up to 4 players to explore the “forsaken” Temple of Osiris together, solving brain-teasing puzzles, dodging deadly traps and defeating monstruous enemies from the ancient Egyptian underworld in their bid to resurrect Osiris, the only god who can help them defeat his evil brother Set, god of chaos. Joining Lara this time are the Egyptian gods Horus and Isis and a rival archaeologist by the name of Carter Bell.
There is no news on an official release date as yet but Square and Crystal have confirmed that the game will be released for the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 and that British actress Keeley Hawes will be reprising her role as LAU-era Lara. Full details of the game’s plot can be found over at LaraCroft.Com! And if you’re interested in learning more about Ancient Egypt, you can find an archive of Egypt-related articles here.
