Square Enix Europe announces new Lara Croft game


Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

Earlier this week there were some rumors that Square Enix Europe would be showing a new Lara Croft game at GDC. We can now safely say that this is confirmed since SE Europe’s Crystal Dynamics announced “Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light” – a 2010 digital download release.

“This is a really exciting project for Crystal Dynamics, we have created something completely new and very different to what people might be expecting,” he said. “Lara Croft is such an iconic character in video games, with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light we have created what we believe is a truly original digital experience.”

Dropping the Tomb Raider title raised  questions of what the game will be like? How is it gonna be different from the previous Tomb Raider titles? Is it related to the leaked pictures last year regarding a Tomb Raider reboot?

I guess we’ll all find out if someone will leak more information about the project since it will be shown “behind closed doors” at this year’s Game Developers Conference.

    Lol Killer_Juice…how many good games has SquareEnix actually made this gen?

    I’d rather the guys at Naughty Dog or Ninja Theory take a stab at a Tomb Raider game. I think they’d make Lara fun again.

    Good suggestion fleakitten, Naughty Dog would make an awsome tomb raider game but im still hoping they make the next jak and daxter game

    Oh GOD no! Now Lara Croft is an ugly looking weaboo. I bet she’ll have more fanservice than ever in this game. Why don’t they just go back to whoring out the FF franchise?

    You know, I really don’t like the idea of forced co-op, but it sounds pretty cool. Going online, and playing with someone really appeals to me. But, I was really looking forward to something more..Classic? One player, puzzles, etc..Aw well, I’m glad to hear that theya re making more =]

    I think it’s great that Edios, and Crystal Dynamics are branching out. Go get ‘em!
