Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light announced

On March 4th Crystal Dynamics announced the new Tomb Raider title in development. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, which is to be released via digital download before the end of the year 2010.

The game is scheduled to be shown at this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC), however it will only be shown to specific audiences.

As you may notice the game is not called 'Tomb Raider...' and instead has been named Lara Croft, this may be down to the fact that it is not so much a continuation of the main series as The Guardian of Light is being developed alongside another title at Crystal Dynamics, which is a continuation of the Tomb Raider series we all know and love.

We have added a couple of screenshots that were recently released as well, as you may be able to tell from these the game is very different to the normal Tomb Raider games, this is because it is a co-op title where Lara is not the only character, we can only wait and see what comes of it in the end.
