Tomb Raider: Underworld is the latest Tomb Raider game to release on PC in 2008 and is a direct sequel to Tomb Raider: Legend, and this platform, action-adventure is coming to Mac from Feral Interactive late May. The story once again follows the unassailable Lara Croft as she ‘uncovers proof that the Norse Underworld is real’. Inevitably, she can’t resist but embark on a quest to find it.
With over a thousand motion-captured moves at her disposal, Lara responds deftly to her environment by free-climbing, wall-jumping and using found objects to create new paths. Each level is an epic multi-stage puzzle which players will need to use all their cunning – and Lara’s athletic abilities – to solve.
A platforming game of unparalleled sophistication, Tomb Raider: Underworld gives players control over everything from Lara’s outfits to whether she brandishes lethal weapons or tranquilizers. Lara can now use her grapple to abseil and manipulate vast mechanical devices, while the treasures of the Underworld give her superhuman strength and the power to lay the undead to rest.
