Inspired by the 1996 Tomb Raider videogame, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a totally new 2006 adventure for Lara, faithfully preserving the elements which made the original Tomb Raider such a classic, using an enhanced Tomb Raider: Legend engine.

Using an enhanced ‘Tomb Raider: Legend’ game engine, the graphics, technology, physics and engine bring Lara’s adventure and pursuit of a mystical artefact known only as the Scion right up to today’s technology standards and will offer gamers a completely new gameplay experience.

“Over the years we have had literally thousands of requests to re-make the original Tomb Raider for today’s gamer, we have gone a step further, we have taken the original story and made a completely new version for Tomb Raider: Anniversary.” said Kathryn Clements, Senior Brand Manager, Eidos. “We are re-telling an incredible story using today’s technology, we’ve taken all of the key moments from the original game and put them into the context of a brand new Tomb Raider adventure which will make fans of the franchise extremely happy but also attract a completely new audience.”

“We’ve captured the essence of what made the original game so special and with today’s technology, created a game that pushes the boundaries of the current gaming consoles. Tomb Raider :Anniversary is a special celebration of Lara’s reign as videogaming’s leading lady” said Ian Livingstone, Eidos.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is currently in development by Crystal Dynamics and will be available in 2007 on PlayStation 2, PSP and PC.
