The highly anticipated sequel to Tomb Raider III hits the shelves this fall.
Sources at Eidos Interactive reveal that Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation will feature the return of iconic heroine Lara Croft as an archeologist caught up in cloak-and-dagger intrigue in Northern Africa, but with a greater emphasis on puzzles and gameplay than its predecessors.
Developers say the game will offer players an easier-to-use interface and enhanced graphics. Loading screens are eliminated, thanks to improvements in the game’s engine, making The Last Revelation a continuous, almost seamless experience, featuring dissolves into cinematic cut-scenes and full-motion video.
Gamers can expect a new and improved Lara as well. Eidos says she will appear fully skinned – without breaks between the polygons that make up the figure – and more detailed than before.
Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation for PC and PlayStation is expected to be released in November.
