Eidos confirms Tomb Raider: Underworld release window

100°
339w ago - The upcoming game Tomb Raider: Underworld will be released on November 2008 according to Eidos. The game focuses on the underworld adventures of Lara, and I hope that this will be a good release like the other Tomb Raider releases...

To quote: Eidos Interactive has revealed that the upcoming Tomb Raider: Underworld will be released in November 2008.

Developed by Crystal Dynamics, the eighth instalment in the popular adventure series will once again pit gamers in the shoes of Lara Croft, as she embarks on an investigation into a series of ruins in Southern Mexico.

Here, Croft inadvertently stumbles across a portal to the underworld dimension, Xibalba, which opens during the five days of Wayeb on the Maya calendar. The game will also allow players to visit locations such as Australia, Easter Island, and Rome, with areas set "in places no-one has seen for centuries."

Underworld will feature a host of new features over its predecessor, including interactive environments, dynamic lighting and weather effects, enhanced visuals, as well as all-new manoeuvres for Croft to perform.

Tomb Raider: Underworld is due out on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PC, Xbox 360 DS and Wii.
 

First Look: Tomb Raider: Underworld

50°
366w ago - For a series that was left practically dead after the horrifying Angel of Darkness, Tomb Raider has been revived so well by Crystal Dynamics that it's now got people who've never played the games hopelessly falling in love with it. Having first taken the spunky, extremely well-endowed Lara out for a spin in 1997, and having gone back to where it all began with Anniversary, this deranged, maniacal, slack-jawed Tomb Raider nutcase has seen it all. Having made Legend and Anniversary the best damned games in the series, Crystal Dynamics looks set to pull out all the stops in the upcoming Tomb Raider: Underworld, which already has a quite a bit of fans going "Drake who?"

We sat and dug through the first preview on the PLAY magazine, and we've got all the dirt on Lara's latest adventure. Directly continuing from her adventures in Legend, Tomb Raider: Underworld (as the name suggests) will see Lara explore vast labyrinthian areas around the world, in addition to doing all the monkey stuff that she does in one of the largest, lush areas seen this side of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. While it is not entirely sure how the story will tie in to Legend's and all that is hinted at in Anniversary, fans might want to look closer into Lord Richard Croft's words in Anniversary, and at the deeper connections between Jacqueline...
 

Eidos cagey on new Lara title

50°
368w ago - Eidos has kept quiet over suggestions that new Lara outing will be called Tomb Raider: Underworld.

Suggestions it would don the title erupted after the publisher filed a US trademark for the name, spotted by the keen eyes of specialist site Trademork.

The filing will apparently cover both retail and digital distribution of the game, hinting that we could see it offered on Live in a similar way to Tomb Raider: Anniversary. Or it could mean we will simply be offered it on Steam like the rest of Eidos' catalogue.

Additional details are scant, other than rumblings it will be centred around the last five days of the Mayan Calendar, where portals between our world and the Underworld open and let nasty things have their way.

Eidos unveiled plans to expand on its Tomb Raider series earlier this year in a financial statement, alongside with promises it would extend Hitman, Just Cause and Championship Manager franchises.

Meanwhile those of you hungry for a bit of Lara should pop over to our Tomb Raider: Anniversary review to find out why it scored nearly top marks.
