Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Footage Unveiled

Scott Amos sat down during a PlayStation event at E3 to talk about Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and showed first look at gameplay footage.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It is different from the main series since this spinoff series focuses on a four-player co-op story wherein players work together in exploration, combat, and solving puzzles. The Lara Croft in this game will also be voiced by Keeley Hawes from Guardian of Light.

The plot of the game was divulged in the PlayStation Blog in detail:

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  was announced during Xbox's media briefing in E3.
