Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness to appear exclusively on PlayStation 2
Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos says: “Eidos is delighted to be bringing the icon of the PlayStation generation exclusively on to PlayStation 2. With the enormous success of the PlayStation brand, the continuing strong sales of PlayStation 2 and the combined marketing strength of Eidos and Sony, we are confident that Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness will be the biggest and best Tomb Raider game to date.”
Chris Deering, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) says: “The combination of the original PlayStation and Tomb Raider was hugely successful and created a gaming phenomenon. With the adoption of PlayStation 2 growing three times as quickly as the original PlayStation and with well over 6 million PS2 owners in Europe, the Tomb Raider phenomenon is set to go from strength to strength.”
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness is classic Lara as both hunter and hunted relying on her ingenuity, athleticism and a new edge that has arisen from her dark inner demons. However, this time she faces more evolved characters and situations, calling for more involved decision-making. Lara now has the ability to interact with characters and the choice of which path to take.
Upgrading her trademark style and look and dropping her into a bombshell scenario calls for a new resourcefulness making her a stronger and more complex heroine.
The game employs a brand new engine built from the ground up to fully utilise the power of PlayStation 2. Lara is now made up of over 5,000 polygons as opposed to just 500 in previous Tomb Raider games. She must traverse an intricately detailed world, which takes her from the back streets of Paris to the hellish depths of Prague.
