With two Tomb Raider titles in the works, Square Enix has their work cut out for them. With that being said, it seems that they’ll have one title finished a lot sooner than we first thought. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, t he top-down co-operative sequel to the isometric action-adventure game Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, has received a release date of December 9 – thank god it’s not October.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a top-down cooperative dungeon crawler, the first Tomb Raider game to feature this kind of gameplay. The game throws players and three other friends together to explore the temple, defeat hordes of enemies from the Egyptian underworld, solve devious puzzles, and avoid deadly traps. It’s not all working-together however as there’s a competitive edge too as players compete for treasure, powerful artifacts, and ultimate bragging rights.
It’s a truly interesting concept and I can’t wait to see the Tomb Raider world brought to life in such a way. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on December 9.
