Lucas Arts’ latest installment in the Indiana Jones interactive saga is now available for Xbox. Developed in collaboration with The Collective Inc., Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb adds “brawling combat” to the action and features the scanned likeness of Harrison Ford for the first time.
Rumored to be buried in the crypt of China’s last emperor, the Heart of the Dragon is a black pearl said to give its possessor the power to control minds. Keeping it out of the wrong hands can only be the job of one man. The storyline has the junior Jones taking on a powerful Asian society and a German Mercenary in a race that leads them from the crocodile-infested waters of Ceylon to the bustling streets of Hong Kong.
Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb was released for PlayStation 2 in February. The trailer is available for download at http://www.lucasarts.com/.
