We have some screen comparisons released by Crystal Dynamic’s for your viewing pleasure. The lighting is a huge step up in my opinion, here are the shots so you can make the call.
The Tomb Raider Trilogy is a sweet deal at $39.99. You get the following:
- Unparalleled Value: All 3 Epic Adventures for one low price on a single Blu-ray disc
- Developer Diaries: Includes complete collection of “Beneath the Surface” Underworld Dev Diaries as well as all trailers created for Underworld including HD pre-rendered trailer
- Exclusive Trilogy Content: Trilogy pack will include these exclusive items:
- Tomb Raider Trilogy PS3 theme Pack
- Official Lara Croft female Home Avatar outfit
- Viking Thrall male Home avatar outfit
- Collection of “making of” trailers in HD for the entire series
The trilogy will be exclusive and ready for purchase on the PS3 come March 22nd.
A little earlier today Sonia Im, the Assistant Director of Public Relations at Square Enix dropped by and informed everyone at the Official PS3 Blog that on March 22nd the PS3 is going to be getting a remastered HD version of Tomb Raider Anniversary, Legend as well as the final chapter in the trilogy Underworld all for only $39.99. One thing that I can say is these remastered versions are pretty cheap. Sure they are older games, but how often do you actually get 3 games in HD for only $40?
Throw everything you know about Tomb Raider out the door. Square Enix has just announced a new entry to the Tomb Raider franchise that will feature a younger, inexperienced Lara Croft stranded on an unknown beach. “Tomb Raider” is the cover story in the newest issue of Game Informer which hits the stands this week. Click here for the official press release. You can also poke around the Official Website.
The latest PSN (and PC and XBLA) Lara Croft title received a long-awaited patch yesterday that allows for online co-op play. The game takes a turn from the usual Lara Croft FPS formula by presenting the characters in a somewhat distant 3rd-person perspective. The game is much more an action-puzzler than a shooter. Integral to the game dynamic is co-op play with two characters who have unique abilities: Lara and Totec, the fleshly manifestation of an Aztec god. In single player, Lara gets all of Totec’s abilities in addition to her own, and the game gets, well, boring. My wife and I have had fun with the local co-op, so online co-op is a most welcome addition.
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.”
