First Lara Croft game gets a face-lift

Eidos has Crystal Dynamics working on a 10th Anniversary Edition of Tomb Raider for PS2, PSP, PC.


In its first decade, Eidos' Tomb Raider franchise became a surprise hit, a system-selling franchise, a pair of big-budget Hollywood movies, an interactive punch line, and a surprise hit once again. The publisher today announced that it will commemorate that run with a 10th Anniversary Edition of the original Tomb Raider for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and PC.

Calling it a "new game," Eidos said it tapped Crystal Dynamics to develop the 10th Anniversary Edition. After original Tomb Raider developer Core Design's poorly received Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, Eidos handed the series to Crystal Dynamics, which created this year's successful Tomb Raider: Legend. While Eidos has retained the Core Design name, it has since sold off the physical studio and its assets to UK-based Rebellion.

Eidos didn't announce much in the way of details for the 10th Anniversary Edition, but the publisher's head of brand management Larry Sparks said it is "a one-off title" that would appeal to existing Tomb Raider fans, as well as attract new ones. There is no release date or pricing information for the project as of yet.
