During E3 last week, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix came out of left field by announcing not only a new Tomb Raider, but also a new Lara Croft game. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris returns to the cooperative, isometric, puzzle-solving action first introduced in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, upping the ante with improved visuals and 4-player co-op (though thankfully not fixing what isn't broken).
"We get to expand our puzzle space as we gain more and more players," says senior designer William Kerslake, noting that Temple of Osiris allows new dynamics for puzzles, depending on how many players are participating. As for when Crystal Dynamics will finally serve up a proper sequel in the Legacy of Kain series, that remains a mystery.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is coming "soon" to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
