Guardian of Light sequel Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming 'soon'

Crystal Dynamics is releasing a sequel to its isometric action-adventure game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (pictured above), called Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Square Enix announced today

The game does not yet have a price or release date, but is "coming soon." Unlike the previous game, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will offer four-player co-op. The game takes place in Egypt and has been built "from the ground up" for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Lara, a rival archaeologist named Carter, and Osiris' wife and son, Horus and Isis, will be playable characters. Although players will get better loot playing with friends, the game also offers solo play.

"After the immensely positive reception we received for our debut co-op adventure Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, we always hoped that we would find the time for Lara to return in another classic AAA digital arcade title," head of product development and Western studios Darrell Gallagher said in a press statement. "We are excited to expand upon Guardian of Light's legacy with an entirely new adventure, and challenged ourselves to create fun new ways to play. Four-player co-op in Lara's world combined with Crystal Dynamics' high production values are being brought to a new generation of platforms and we are excited for more friends to share in the adventure together."

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was released in 2010. Unlike previous Tomb Raider titles, it included a heavy focus on multiplayer gameplay, giving players the option to control either Lara or Totec, a Mayan tribesman. The game, which is available as a downloadable title only, is not considered part of the core Tomb Raider franchise.

Domain registrations for two projects, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Rise of the Tomb Raider recently appeared online. Crystal Dynamics revealed last August that it was "well into development" on a next-gen sequel to its franchise reboot, Tomb Raider. A comic series announced last July will lead directly into the game's story.
