The lights are on
The top down action title Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is finally getting a sequel, and this time around four players will be able to jump into the action. Does this mean that the game will be four times as fun? We'll have to wait to find out.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will take players to the depths of the Egyptian desert where they'll face down the evil god Set and try to stop him from from
enslaving all mankind. In her new adventure, Lara's new companions are a rival
treasure hunter named Carter Bell and two imprisoned gods called Horus and Isis. We loved fighting off hordes of enemy undead and solving unique co-op puzzles in Guardian of Light, so we're excited to find out how the new setting and the two new co-op partners mix up that action.
“We always hoped that we would find the time for Lara to return in another classic AAA digital arcade title,” said Darrell Gallagher, head of product development and western studios. “We are excited to expand upon Guardian of Light’s legacy with an entirely new adventure, and challenged ourselves to create fun new ways to play. Four-player co-op in Lara’s world combined with Crystal Dynamics' high production values are being brought to a new generation of platforms and we are excited for more friends to share in the adventure together.”
We don't know a release date for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris yet, but we expect to see more of this title later in the week, so stay tuned for more details as we dig deeper into this tomb. The game is slated for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
