Executive producer Scot Amos shares more details
Hiyas, I’m Scot Amos, executive producer on Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. The team here at Crystal Dynamics has been working extremely hard on bringing a new title to the critically acclaimed digital franchise on the PlayStation 4 and we are excited to finally share more details with you all.
We challenged ourselves with Guardian of Light by making it the first Lara Croft game featuring co-op and we continue this tradition by making Temple of Osiris our first-ever four player co-op experience with Lara! This is a unique opportunity to cooperate with or compete against your friends in drop-in and drop-out co-op to earn bigger rewards, better treasures, and more powerful artifacts to boost your character. But how you play is up to you. Will you share the wealth, or will you sacrifice your friends for more loot and a higher score? The entire campaign is multiplayer and single-player since we know lots of fans will want to tackle Lara’s all-new adventure solo.
“Temple of Osiris features everything you loved about Guardian of Light”
The story takes place in the forsaken Temple of Osiris, long hidden, deep in the deserts of Egypt. Lara Croft arrives at the mysterious temple, only to discover her new rival, Carter Bell, is also seeking the legendary Staff of Osiris – an instrument of power over life and death.
When Carter removes the mythical Staff from its resting place he triggers a trap that curses them both and unleashes the evil god Set, brother to Osiris, and usurper of his kingdom. However, the reclaimed staff also awakens the gods Horus and Isis, the son and wife of Osiris. Free from their ancient prison, these gods offer to repay Lara and Carter by joining forces in order to remove their curse and stop Set. You’ll play as Lara, Carter, Isis, or Horus as you fight your way across lethal sands and through deadly tombs battling to resurrect Osiris and fulfill his prophecy by defeating Set.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris features everything you loved about Guardian of Light, including the fast paced action, isometric and cinematic camera, dangerous puzzles, deep tomb exploration, lethal traps, and more. Then, leveraging our next-gen engine and the power of the PlayStation 4, we deliver truly stunning environments and visual effects as well as four-player co-op action.
You can see the incredible attention to detail and the passion the Crystal team pours into every facet, effect, and texture – pushing the art of digital games. The team here is working tirelessly to deliver that AAA experience in a classic arcade Croft title.
Well I can’t give away too much information right now, I hope you’re as excited about The Temple of Osiris as we are! Check out our debut trailer if you haven’t seen it and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with the latest information.
