Lara Returns to Consoles in Legend

Eidos today announced the launch of the much anticipated Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend, the seventh edition in the highly successful Tomb Raider game series. After a two year hiatus, the world’s most famous female explorer makes her comeback in an all-new 3D adventure that sees Lara travelling the world and getting back to her tomb raiding roots. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend debuted in Europe Friday, and is available today in North America for Xbox 360 and Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC.

Jungles, mountain ruins and ancient tombs built to challenge even the most accomplished armchair adventurer, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend is a 3D quest set in lifelike environments ranging from the lush landscapes of Bolivia to steamy African rainforests; exotic Peruvian jungles to the snow-capped Himalayan mountain ruins, and other ancient tombs filled with deadly traps. As the adventure unfolds, the player will learn more about Lara’s mysterious past and see her come to terms with death, betrayal and her own insecurities.

Lara and the player will embark on the adventure together utilizing her legendary physical prowess and agility, made more realistic with a new fluid movement system and real world physics. In addition to her trademark dual pistols, Lara is now equipped with an arsenal of such state-of-the-art gadgetry as a magnetic grappling hook, frag grenades, binoculars, personal lighting device, communications equipment, and GPS tracking to help her solve physics based puzzles and improvise solutions to challenging obstacles.
