EIDOS UNVEILS FIRST DETAILS OF LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: LEGEND

World's best-known digital entertainment icon gets fresh start from new team, new look and new adventure.

San Francisco, CA (April 5, 2005) - Eidos (NASDAQ: EIDSY), one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today reveals the first details, including title, in-game character model and brand direction, of the next adventure for video gaming's leading lady. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend is grounded in Lara Croft's tomb raiding roots and built to challenge even the most accomplished serial adventurer.

"In setting the stage for the Tomb Raider franchise moving forward, we took ourselves back to Lara's origins, asked ourselves the hard questions and challenged ourselves to think differently," said Chip Blundell, vice president of brand marketing, Eidos Inc. "Who is Lara Croft? What makes her tick? How is she relevant today? Only by answering these questions could we ensure that gamers get the experience they deserve with the character they love."

Eighteen months ago, Tomb Raider team members at Crystal Dynamics embarked on their own quest to rediscover Lara Croft. During their soul-searching mission, they unearthed past consumer surveys, conducted new research, re-read every game review, listened to lots of passionate pleas and opinions from gamers and re-played through every Tomb Raider product. From this introspection and open-minded search for a fresh perspective, Tomb Raider: Legend was born.

As a result, Eidos is evolving the brand while building on the original values of compelling character and suspense-filled adventure gameplay. Crystal Dynamics has brought together the biggest and most diverse development team in Tomb Raider history and recruited Lara Croft's original creator Toby Gard as the lead character designer.

"Even before the first title launched, Lara Croft had to fight her way into the Tomb Raider franchise, since at the time most game characters were muscle-bound blokes," said Gard. "The Lara Croft character is resilient and totally unstoppable. In Tomb Raider: Legend, we explore these core personality traits and reveal the Lara Croft gamers have been waiting to see."

Tomb Raider: Legend revives the athletic, intelligent and entertaining adventurer who won the hearts and minds of gamers worldwide. Lara comes alive with intricately animated expressions, moves and abilities. An arsenal of modern equipment, such as a magnetic grappling device, binoculars, frag grenades, personal lighting device and communications equipment, allows gamers to experience tomb raiding as never before.

Eidos and Crystal Dynamics shaped Lara's look and movements to be an inherent extension of her skills, motivation and personality. Lara's character model features natural structure, realistic textures, detailed facial features, reactive eyes and fluid motion, all of which make her part of a living environment.

New character animations and controls allow her to move through stunning environments with grace and precision, while an understanding of the game's original appeal reinvigorates the fundamental explore-and-solve adventure experience.

Tomb Raider: Legend is slated for release on the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, PC and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft. More details will be revealed on www.tombraider.com beginning April 12.

Tomb Raider Lara Croft Celebrates Birthday on February 14

Digital Diva Refuses to Disclose Her Age

Lara Croft, the world's first digital sex symbol, will celebrate her birthday on February 14. True to the independent and contrarian traits of the Aquarian sign, Lara will not reveal her age.

While she shares her birthday with Valentine's Day, Lara will have no time for flowers, candy or adoring suitors. She is on-location in La Paz, Bolivia gearing up for her latest video game adventure -- "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend," which begins amid ancient ruins in Bolivia. The game hits retail stores worldwide on April 11 for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PC. Tomb Raider: Legend will also ship for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PSP(TM) (PlayStationPortable) system at a later date.

Lara Croft blasted through the gaming world's old-boy-network 10 years ago as the first leading lady in a video game. Since then her name has sold more than 30 million video games and inspired music videos, comic books, amusement park attractions and two blockbuster films. When not raiding tombs, Lara has been found gracing magazine covers such as Entertainment Weekly and promoting everything from energy drinks to breakfast cereals.

Since her debut in 1996, Lara's star has continued to rise. She was even nominated as one of Time Magazine's Most Influential Figures of the 20th Century.

Her new video game, "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend," will be published by Eidos Interactive and presents Lara in the finest fidelity to date. A revamped control system provides intuitive and fluid character movement, while a compelling storyline and vast environments lure players into an unrivaled adventure experience.

Lara Croft Marks Decade as Pop Icon With New Video Game Debuting April 11

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Mar 13, 2006 -- In 1996, Hootie & the Blowfish won the Grammy for Best New Artist, Madonna was greeted in Argentina with signs saying "Fuera Madonna" (Get Out , Madonna) for her portrayal of Eva Peron, and Demi Moore co-starred with a metal pole in Striptease. Amid the entertainment industry insanity of 1996, Eidos Interactive brought to life a character that has proven her super-star status over the past decade.

In the ten years since the world first met adventuress Lara Croft, she has become a pop culture icon extending well beyond her Tomb Raider video game franchise. Today Lara Croft is a billion-dollar brand and the inspiration behind music videos, comic books, amusement park attractions and endorsements for products, ranging from hot pants to energy drinks.

With two movie spin-offs, 200+ magazine covers and the title of U.K. Ambassador for Science and Technology under her comely belt, the digital diva is back in Eidos Interactive's anticipated "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend" video game. Her new game, which kicks off amid the ancient ruins in Bolivia, hits U.S. retail stores from April 11. Early reviews from the media call "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend" "amazing" and claim that Lara is "back on top" (PSM: Play Station 2 Magazine).

New Twist on Tomb Raiding Roots

As important as the game's leading lady, is the game itself and consumers have fallen in love with the heart-pounding surprises and constant physical and mental challenges they face while playing out Lara's latest ancient tomb raiding adventures.

Real-world physics will keep gamers on their toes -- and the edge of their seats -- as they journey through ancient ruins in South America, tombs hidden in African rainforests, and frozen caverns in the Himalayas. As the adventure unfolds, the player will learn more about Lara's mysterious past and see her come to terms with death, betrayal and her own insecurities.

In the new game, Lara comes to life with intricately animated expressions and an arsenal of modern equipment, such as a magnetic grappling device, frag grenades, a personal light source, communications equipment and GPS, allowing gamers to experience the adventure in a variety of new ways.

Leading Lady Legacy

Lara is arguably the first, and certainly the most recognisable game crossover star. Why has she endured, to be dubbed in one blog as "undoubtedly pop culture's polygonal darling?" One video game reviewer characterized Lara Croft's appeal saying, "In Tomb Raider, Lara displayed an unprecedented variety of moves and animations that gave her an almost lifelike quality. She's also tough. She's athletic. She's got a can-do mentality.... It's a tried-and-true Hollywood formula: The more the audience feels like they know the hero, the more people will care for her."

Assertive, resourceful and independent, Lara Croft is the first virtual celebrity to hold her own in a world of flesh and blood stars since her debut. Her list of accomplishments would leave many in Hollywood green with envy:

  • She's graced more than 200 magazine covers around the globe
  • She's been lauded in Entertainment Weekly's "It" issue of 100 most creative entertainment elite, Time Magazine's most influential figures of the 20th century and as the only virtual celebrity figure featured in Details' Sexiest Women of the Year
  • She is star of one of top video game franchises of all time, with 28+ million copies sold to date
  • Her adventures spawned feature a film empire with movies starring Oscar-winner Angelina Joie that grossed more than $431 million worldwide
"Lara has proven that she's a pop icon with staying power," said Matt Gorman, Senior Brand Manager at Eidos. "Her personality transcends the medium she debuted in -- gaming -- because she represents the feisty independent spirit that we embrace in American culture."

About "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend"

The game hits retail stores nationwide on April 11 for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PC. "Tomb Raider: Legend" will also ship for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PSP(TM) (PlayStationPortable) system at a later date.

"Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend" will be published by Eidos Interactive and presents Lara in the finest fidelity to date.

PRESS RELEASE: Casting the new voice of Lara .at last the story can be told!

With the official release of the highly anticipated Tomb Raider: Legend in April, sound production company side who cast, recorded and directed the new incarnation of iconic character Lara Croft can finally shout about another major project successfully completed.

side cast TV and film actress Keeley Hawes (Spooks, Tipping The Velvet) as the new voice of the world's most glamorous tomb-raiding, gun-toting adventurer but while landing one of gaming's more enviable tasks is something most of us would want to shout from the rooftops, the people at side have had to keep their mouths very firmly shut. Strict secrecy was maintained throughout production, even as speculation raged in the gaming community about the new Lara's possible identity.

side co-founder Andy Emery acknowledged that there was a rather cruel irony in an audio specialist having to maintain a stoic silence: 'It is sometimes a little frustrating that we cannot shout about projects we're currently working on, especially when they're as exciting or prestigious as many of our recent projects have been. But, of course, we fully understand the need to keep things under wraps. And when great titles such as Tomb Raider: Legend or the recent Dragon Quest: Journey Of The Cursed King receive such critical acclaim from the specialist press, that gives everyone here at side a real glow of satisfaction at a job well done.'

The latest in the Dragon Quest series has already had tremendous critical acclaim in the US, with vocal work being singled out for particular praise by reviewers. Other significant projects to date include Driver: Parallel Lines, The Movies, Batman Begins, Black & White 2, Genji, MediEvil: Resurrection, Fable and Killzone. side is currently working on a number of Next Gen titles due for release in 2007.

'Working with side UK was instrumental in ensuring we met our high production values set out for Tomb Raider: Legend. We chose side for the facilities, professionalism, experience and friendly staff which collectively made the whole experience run very smoothly, and we look forward to working with side again in the future.'

Greg Hounsom, Senior Producer Eidos
