Overview


Tomb Raider: Anniversary
, the title of Lara Croft’s 8 th adventure was announced to the world in 2006 after the highly successful game Tomb Raider: Legend rekindled the franchises long term success. Legend paved the way for what Eidos (the publishers of Tomb Raider) describe as a “re-imagining” of the game that kick started it all: the original 1996 Tomb Raider!

10 years on; the game is essentially an updated version of the 1996 hit which went on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide. The game will take advantage of modern development technology and the 3D engine utilised in Tomb Raider: Legend. This means Tomb Raider: Anniversary will hopefully look, feel and play better than the 1996 counterpart.
The game is currently slated for a May 2007 release and will be released on PC, PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation Portable platforms
