The Egypt-centric Lara Croft & the Temple of Osiris will allow up to 4 players to explore the “forsaken” Temple of Osiris together, solving brain-teasing puzzles, dodging deadly traps and defeating monstrous enemies from the ancient Egyptian underworld in their bid to resurrect Osiris, the only god who can help them defeat his evil brother Set, god of chaos. Joining Lara this time are the Egyptian gods Horus and Isis and a rival archaeologist by the name of Carter Bell.
