New Tomb Raider Finally Out of Vault

After several delays, game publisher and developer Eidos will release the highly anticipated Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness for PlayStation 2 and PC in North America tomorrow. The publisher is confident the new title will continue the success of previous entries in the series. Since Lara made her debut in 1996, the Tomb Raider games have sold more than 28 million units worldwide.

The Tomb Raider franchise is being supported by a massive television, print, radio and online campaign spotlighting the video game and Paramount Pictures’ Tomb Raider film sequel, The Cradle of Life, scheduled for US release on July 25, 2003.

In Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, the gaming world’s most famous heroine returns as both hunter and hunted, relying on her ingenuity, athleticism and a new edge to her personality. Developed by Core Design, the game also introduces a new playable character, Kurtis Trent, who works alongside Lara to help clear her name from a murder suspicion and clean up a most desperate situation. Players must traverse an intricately detailed world, taking them from the back streets of Paris to the depths of Prague.

This action/adventure title is rated Teen for blood and violence and will retail for around $49.99.
