Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Previewed at E3 2014
At E3 2014 this week, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics revealed that Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris would be coming soon to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. An exact release has not been announced.
Temple of Osiris is the sequel to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and like Guardian, the game is a deviation from the Tomb Raider series and instead focuses on multiplayer action gameplay. Temple of Osiris will enable players to engage in four person co-op play to battle enemies, avoid traps and solve puzzles.
In the studio’s official synopsis of the game, the story will have Lara Croft traveling to Egypt where she teams up with archaeologist Carter Bell and two imprisoned gods, Horus and Isis. Their mission? To defeat the evil god Set.
Scot Amos, the executive producer on Temple of Osiris, wrote about the game on the official PlayStation Blog. “We challenged ourselves with Guardian of Light by making it the first Lara Croft game featuring co-op and we continue this tradition by making Temple of Osiris our first-ever four player co-op experience with Lara!” he writes. “This is a unique opportunity to cooperate with or compete against your friends in drop-in and drop-out co-op to earn bigger rewards, better treasures, and more powerful artifacts to boost your character. But how you play is up to you. Will you share the wealth, or will you sacrifice your friends for more loot and a higher score? The entire campaign is multiplayer and single-player since we know lots of fans will want to tackle Lara’s all-new adventure solo.”
