'Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness' Coming June 20th

British-based computer games firm Eidos announced the imminent return of its most famous creation and biggest money-spinner -- tomb-raiding Lara Croft. The next instalment in the adventures of the skimpily-dressed pistol-packing heroine, "Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness", will be released on June 20, Eidos said.

It will hit the streets five days before the second installment in the Lara Croft film franchise, "The Cradle of Life", again starring Angelina Jolie as the intrepid adventurer, is released by Paramount in the United States.

The game has suffered from a series of delays, with Eidos announcing last October that it needed further development and would not be released in time for the lucrative Christmas market.

At the time Eidos said the new game would see Lara "interact" with characters rather than just shooting them.

Eidos, formerly a specialist video technology firm, has been one of the biggest success stories of the computer gaming industry since it released its first games in 1995.

The bulk of its spectacular growth has been based on titles starring Lara Croft. More than 28 million copies of the five existing Tomb Raider games have been sold worldwide since the first was released in 1996.
