EIDOS INTERACTIVE TO RELEASE AN EXPERT ADD ON PACK TO ITS MEGA HIT TITLE TOMB RAIDER
Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business to be available this summer
San Francisco, CA, March 26, 1997 -- Eidos Interactive, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eidos plc (NASDAQ: EIDSY), a developer and publisher of entertainment software products, announced today the forthcoming release of Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business, an add on pack for owners of the original Tomb Raider for PC CD-ROM. Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business will include two additional expert levels, the entire library of high-resolution Lara Croft images, and previewable materials on the much anticipated Tomb Raider 2.
Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business starts gamers where they left off in the original. Gamers will once again take control of the beautiful adventurer, Lara Croft, in her quest to destroy the remaining hatchery of Atlantean pods containing vicious alien beasts previously encountered in the Atlantis levels. The massive 3D expert levels will test the skills of the player with additional battles, puzzle solving, and complex maneuvering of Lara Croft.
"The high demand from the public for more Tomb Raider levels has been overwhelming," said Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos Interactive. "In Unfinished Business, gamers get more of the exciting gameplay of Tomb Raider at a great price."
