about X hours ago from

It might be a year before we dive into the sequel to 2013's Tomb Raider, but we won't have to wait long for the follow-up to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. The sequel, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is on track for a December release, and the team has released a developer diary chronicling the new four-player co-op influenced puzzle design.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is an isometric action-puzzling game that supports four-player co-op, up from the two-player co-op of its predecessor. Players control Lara, archaeologist Carter Bell, and Egyptian deities Horus and Isis as they cooperate to navigate the trap-laden, ancient Egyptian environment.

“Since the release of the highly successful Tomb Raider reboot in 2013 we’ve been able to spend time working on one of the games we get most frequently asked for, a sequel to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light,” said Darrell Gallagher, head of Western development, in a blog post. "The team at Crystal worked passionately to put the very best game we could in your hands and we are very proud to share our work with you.”
