Eidos Confirms Underworld Release

Although the series hit a speed bump or two last generation, we've seen a strong revival thanks to recent entries like Tomb Raider: Legend. Therefore, our expectations are very high for the upcoming Tomb Raider: Underworld, which now has a solidified release date.

According to News10 (ABC), Eidos has officially announced that Underworld will arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, DS and PC on November 18, just in time for the holiday rush. One important note mentioned in the ABC article shouldn't go unnoticed; although Legend was indeed on the 360, it wasn't specifically designed for next-gen consoles. Underworld, however, is. And this time around, our ageless buxom friend is out to prove the existence of the mythical hammer of the Norse God, Thor. If you're a fan of mythology, you're well aware of this artifact, which is supposed to be able to smash mountains and even destroy other Gods. Clearly, a quest of this magnitude will involve multiple exotic locations and numerous baddies to test Lara's new skills, and let's not forget about those challenging puzzles. Said Robert Lindsey, Eidos Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing:

"Tomb Raider: Underworld takes the franchise to places it has not yet been, in terms of action, visual fidelity, technical achievement, and overall fun. Tomb Raider has never looked, acted or played so life-like before; built for next generation systems, and next generation gamers, Lara Croft will traverse massive, detailed, environments, with all the skills and abilities she would have in real life."

The holiday season is already chock full of highly anticipated titles, but nobody is going to forget about Tomb Raider: Underworld. Will it be the highly entertaining and top-quality action/adventure game we all hope it can be?

Man, how many Tomb Raider games are there? I've never played one yet but I expect them all to be very alike. Was never really interested in the series but Underworld does look pretty good, graphically anyways.

Jesus, I'm going broke! My Games Wanted list amounts to $460!

2008, for the most part, might be the most depressing year in recent history, but at least it's a spectacular year for games.
