The sequel to the Tomb Raider spin-off - Guardian of Light - will be coming soon to Next Gen. We also have some information regarding upcoming DLC.
Lara croft and the Temple of Osiris is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider spin-off "Guardian of Light". Lara Croft is tasked with joining forces with treasure hunter Carter Bell and two imprisoned Egyptian gods, Isis and Horus. The four characters must work together in order to defeat hordes of enemies from the Egyptian underworld, solve devious and deadly puzzles, avoid perilous traps and hazards, compete for treasure, loot powerful artifacts and cooperate in order to achieve the most important task, defeating the evil god Set.
The game replicates the top down style of its predecessor and has added some new features to the next instalment on the next gen consoles and PC. Lara now has dynamic lighting which she can use to light up tombs and solve puzzles - the game can be played with 1-4 players, and different combinations will result in different puzzles entirely.
DLC info for this new Tomb Raider game has also been revealed, ranging from Hitman and Deus Ex skin packs, to details for a special edition of the game.
"Assassinate Your Enemies with the Hitman Pack, available on Steam and from participating digital retailers. Pre-order to receive the exclusive Hitman themed skins including the iconic Silverballers and The Agent ring, which gives your character increased weapon damage and more powerful bombs."
