As reported by Tomb Raider Chronicles
, the latest issue of Play
contains the first information regarding the next iteration of the Tomb Raider
series. The issue
was apparently available online earlier this morning, but has since been removed from Play
's online store. Thankfully, Tomb Raider Chronicles have the details anyway. First and foremost, the game takes place after Tomb Raider: Legend
. The game will be subtitled Underworld
and will feature "a lush, vast interactive world." Whether or not this means the game will utilize the ever trendy sandbox / open world gameplay style remains unclear. The rest of the details center around nifty graphical effects like realistic footprint physics (no, seriously) and the fully motion captured acrobatics of Lara's latest incarnation. The game just might make it for a 2008 release and, yes, a 360 version looks to be in the cards.
