Tomb Raider: Underworld developer diary

A next-gen Lara Croft has been a long time coming, but now, 2 years into the current generation, we’re about to get her. With the European release date for Tomb Raider: Underworld recently announced – November 21 – and this first developer diary, which seems to be be first in a series, the developers are about to ready to really start talking about what they’ve been up to since Legend and Anniversary were wrapped up. Titled ‘The Vision’, the diary above covers the same level that was demoed to Matt in an underwater-looking room at E3 yesterday, and between everyone from the creative director to the lead designer talking about what they’re trying to achieve with Underworld, shows off some of those smooth motion-captured animations he was talking about.
