The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the upcoming action-adventure Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris have been rated today by the ESRB. Strangely, the PC version is missing from the rating, but it reveals a few pieces of information about the game’s guns and enemies.
This is an adventure-platformer in which players help Lara Croft and her allies recover ancient artifacts in an underground temple. From a 3/4 overhead perspective, players traverse environments and use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, and magical relics to defeat fantastical creatures (e.g., giant scarabs, skeletal warriors, crocodile creatures) in frenetic combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and cries of pain. Some creatures break apart into pieces and/or emit splashes of colorful liquid when defeated; one sequence depicts blood stains on a book. The word “bastard” can be heard in the game.
While PS4 owners will have to wait in order to play Raise of the Tomb Raider, at least they’ll be getting this one as soon as it launches, even if a release date hasn’t been announced yet.
