Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris details unearthed

Along with the announcement of The Rise of Tomb Raider for consoles next year, Crystal Dynamics is also hard at work on the downloadable follow-up to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Titled Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, it is slated for consoles with no release date set.

The story revolves around Lara exploring the Temple of Osiris, trying to retrieve a long-lost staff. Her latest rival, Carter Bell, also shows up looking for it, but the two of them inadvertently free a rival god named Set, who could very well destroy the world by reawakening his kingdom. With the help of friendlier gods Horus and Isis, they attempt to put Set back to rest.

Like Guardian of Light, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris takes place in an isometric perspective, showing you the lay of levels that you'll need to complete with Lara and her companions. You'll need to contend with dangers and enemies while occasionally solving the brain-tickling puzzle so you can move forward. In addition, you'll also be able to snag some bonus treasure, just like in the first game, through hidden rooms.

Temple of Osiris will also be the first Tomb Raider game to feature four-player co-op, as three cohorts will join up with Lara and work together to solve particular puzzles, which she won't be able to do on her own. It's in pure drop-in, drop-out fashion, so players can hop in and out at any time, without any penalty to the other players.

The game will release for PlayStation 4, and other specified platforms, soon. More details on an exact date are expected in the months ahead.
