De gasten van The Adrenaline Vault hebben wat info over Tomb Raider 4. Het schijnt dat deze game midden deze maand officieel wordt aangekondigd.
Eidos Interactive has uncharacteristically remained in the shadows regarding the next iteration of the Lara Croft series, Tomb Raider 4: Last Revelation. That is about to change. Earlier this year, the sequel was alluded to in the companyís financial report, and although the game was not publicly shown at E3, it was there, behind closed doors, being shown to a select group of insiders. The gameís official title and fall release date for a PlayStation version appeared on retailerís release date lists in June, but still nothing from Eidos. As it turns out, the publisher was bidding its time and oiling the PR machine for a summer announcement.
The Adrenaline Vault has learned that an announcement regarding the next title will be made in mid-July. At that time, Eidos will announce the PC and PlayStation versions and reveal the location for the game. According to our source, the designers are returning to the roots of what made the series popular. No, not Madonna-esque pointed breasts, but the essence of exploration, adventure and puzzle solving, as opposed to the extremely challenging gameplay and combat of the third title. Although the game is being created for both platforms, numerous engine enhancements are reportedly being implemented.
Maar ja, zitten we er eigenlijk wel op te wachten?
