Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris Launch Trailer; Co-Op Tomb Raider Spinoff Releases Tuesday For PC, Xbox One And PS4 [VIDEO]
Developers Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have released the launch trailer for their four play “co-opetive” title Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.
The digital-download game hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One this Tuesday, December 9. The game is the anticipated sequel to Guardian of Light and is also exhibit #1 in the case against realism in video games. The Tomb Raider series, developed down the hall from Osiris, has taken a much more series tone in recent years. The Temple of Osiris, meanwhile, outfits the Egyptian pantheon with automatic weapons and pits you against giant crocodiles.
Thankfully, we live in a world where both experiences exist. The game can support up to four players both online and offline drop-in/drop-out co-op and features Lara Croft and rival archaeologist Carter Bell as they team up to defeat the Egyptian god Set. Aiding them in this monumental task are Isis and Horus, imprisoned gods themselves. Players work together to defeat enemies and solve puzzles, however, that doesn’t mean the person next to you is your friend.
This is still an arcade game and in arcade games, the player with the highest score wins. So be a team, but don’t forget ‘I’.
We got our hands on the game back in October and while the controls were less than intuitive and the movement felt twitchy, the game is very enjoyable. It was the most played game at the event and certainly the one people were into the most. There was lots and lots of shouting and ‘why’d you do that!?’, the sure sign of a good time amongst friends, and strangers.
You can download the game from BuyLaraCroft.com for all three systems. It will be unlocked at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday.
