A long-forgotten remake of the original Tomb Raider has resurfaced on the internet over a decade after its cancellation.
The game is called Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary, and it was originally slated to come out on Sony’s handheld, the PlayStation Portable. Even though it was nearly finished, the game was canned in favor of Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider: Anniversary. The rest is history.
According to our friends at PC Gamer:
A collection of assets believed to be those of the lost Tomb Raider game have now resurfaced, and been shared on the Internet Archive. Thanks to instructions on the Tomb of Ash website, you can play an alpha version of Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary today. You’ll need to install a patch, Visual Studio, and have either a PS4 or Xbox 360 controller, but once it’s up and running you’ll be able to explore several locations.
Personally, I loved Tomb Raider: Anniversary when it came out back in 2007. It’s possible that that game would not have happened if this ever got released. Still, Tomb Raider fans will want to check out this cancelled PSP project.
