Lara Croft is back! The first details have been released by Eidos on the new Tomb Raider game. The new game title will be "Tomb Raider: Legend", with Toby Gard, the creator of Lara Croft, serving as Lead designer of the game.
Tomb Raider: Legend is described to revive the athletic, intelligent and entertaining adventurer who excited gamers worldwide. "Lara comes alive with intricately animated expressions, moves and abilities. An arsenal of modern equipment, such as a magnetic grappling device, binoculars, frag grenades, personal lighting device and communications equipment, allows gamers to experience tomb raiding as never before," Eidos said.
Lara is getting a programming makeover, with new character animations and controls to improve "grace and precision." The goal is to create a much more life like Lara which will have natural structure, realistic textures, detailed facial features, reactive eyes and fluid motion. Hopefully this will include giving her a much more realistic bottom, since you spend most of the game looking at it.
