Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris confirmed at E3 2014 – trailer

Monday, 9th June 2014 19:49 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris has been confirmed as the sequel to series off-shoot Guardian of Light. It’s coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

UPDATE:

The game was first confirmed after Crystal Dynamics unveiled the first trailer for its reboot sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider. Watch it through the link.

Publisher Square Enix wrote in its synopsis, “In her new adventure, Lara Croft travels to Egypt and must join forces with rival archaeologist Carter Bell and imprisoned gods Horus and Isis, to defeat the evil god Set.

“Featuring a four-player co-op story, players must work together to explore the temple, defeat hordes of enemies from the Egyptian underworld, solve devious puzzles, and avoid deadly traps. All the while, players will compete for treasure, powerful artifacts, and ultimate bragging rights.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Two interesting new domain names popped up over the weekend – RiseOfTheTombRaider.com and LaraCroftAndTheTempleOfOsiris.com.

Superannuation turned up both registrations, which the Internet sleuth traces to Square Enix’s corporate registrar.

Neither name is clearly linked to an existing Tomb Raider effort, such as the soft-launched mobile game known variously as Lara Croft: Reflections and Tomb Raider: Reflections.

As such, it’s pretty hard not to assume we’re looking at something to do with Crystal Dynamics’ next Tomb Raider game, especially as we’ve long known a sequel is in the works.

The fact that there are two titles may suggest one website is intended as a marketing or promotional site, or it may mean there’s a spin-off game in the works as well – something like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

We’ll be looking forward to an E3 2014 reveal to see what the company has done with the extra grunt of the PS4 and Xbox One – especially given how well-received the next-gen ports of the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot were.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    @Unlimax What Squeenix will probably do is let that series stay completely dead for the next ten years so they don’t have to draw attention to how royally Toriyama ruined everything with 3rd Birthday. Of course, I’ll take no new PE games over a “reboot” in the vein of what Squeenix did to this franchise.

    @Unlimax At this point a complete reboot would be much appreciated. I love the old games, but that handheld effort left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Not sure if interested. The last one was a good game but it didn’t feel anything like a Tomb Raider game. All that shootin and pickaxin… well, as much as i love shooters, I liked Tomb Raider (old school) because of its puzzle problem solving gameplay.

    You know I agree with you, I felt like the set pieces were just thrown in there to compete with the likes of the Uncharted series and it didn’t feel like a ‘true’ Tomb Raider’ experience.

    Plus, the story was really weak and at some points stupid. Hopefully the sequel will return the game back to its roots.

    My predictions are: The Rise of the Tomb Raider is a AAA game, and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a sequel to Guardian of light so it’ll be another little arcade game.

    I for one really enjoyed the reboot. The old Tomb Raider series had run its course, and it’s time for a new Lara. This one is a lot more believable. The old one was too top-heavy to pull of some of the stuff she did.
