Tomb Raider: Underworld

Lara Croft is back in action and doing what she does best with official confirmation of the long-hinted Tomb Raider: Underworld.

Eidos-owned developer Crystal Dynamics has once again taken the helm, after handling the franchise reboot in Tomb Raider: Legend, as well as Tomb Raider: Anniversary, the latter being a remake of the original Tomb Raider to celebrate its 10th birthday.

According to the London-based publisher, Underworld will see new improvements including artificial intelligence, weapons, motion-captured animation, mechanics, and lighting. The latest episode in the series will take heroine Lara to Mexico, where she will be exploring the Mayan underworld.

Although a firm release date has yet to be announced, Tomb Raider: Underworld is expected later this year on the PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo's Wii and DS.
