Tomb Raider fans were all excited to see Tomb Raider: Rise of the Tomb Raider revealed during Microsoft’s E3 press conference but it was not the only Tomb Raider game to make an appearance at this year’s E3. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, the successor to the arcade game Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, also showed up at E3.
Continuing the action and adventure of the original, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris takes Lara on an adventure through the mythical temples of Osiris seeking treasure but she must fight off her rivals and the angry gods they have disturbed.
The new game takes the arcade action to a new level with its dynamic co-op play. Not only can you play with up to four players, the players can be a mix of local and online, so finding co-op players should not be an issue. The environment and puzzles will change based on the number of players in the session and offer you better loot by playing with more people, not just playing more often.
The gameplay developer Crystal Dynamics displayed was from the PS4 but the new game is slated to come to Xbox One and PC as well. Unfortunately the game does not have an official release date at this time, so you still have some time to play the original a few more times.
I played Guardian of Light on the PS3 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The co-op in this new version looks like it will be absolutely great and I am looking forward to it.
