Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris has an official release date. Developer Crystal Dynamics has announced that Croft fans can play the game on December 9, 2014.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will be a sequel to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. What’s new to the game is that friends can play together with a four-player co-op. Scot Amos described the game in the past on the official PlayStation Blog.
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.
