Square Enix will publish a new Lara Croft game that is currently under developed at Crystal Dynamics. The new game is titled Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and there is good reason for the striking absence of Tomb Raider in the title.
Guardian of Light will be a co-operative multiplayer game played from an isometric view. Lara Croft will be assisted on her adventures in South America by a Mayan tribesman named Totec. The two will have to work in tandem to solve puzzles, fight enemies and successfully overcome obstacles. The game will only be available in a downloadable version through online distribution networks. So far, Square Enix has not disclosed on which platforms the game will be available. The press release announcing the game did confirm a behind closed doors reveal at the GDC which is starting on March 09 and we expect more information about the game coming out of this.
Meanwhile, you can have a look at some of the screenshots from the game.
