    Lightbulb Tomb Raider: Legend "First Look" DVD to be bundled with Total Overdose!

    We have just announced that there is an exclusive “First Look” DVD that goes into detail about the ongoing development of the upcoming game Tomb Raider: Legend that will be included with game Total Overdose: A Gunslinger's Tale in Mexico.

    The First Look Tomb Raider: Legend DVD will be included in the PS2 and XBOX full retail versions of the upcoming game Total Overdose: A Gunslinger’s Tale in Mexico, which will be available in stores on September 28th, 2005. The First Look Tomb Raider: Legend DVD will not be included with the PC version.

    Some of the in-depth interviews you will find on the First Look Tomb Raider: Legend DVD will be:

    - Toby Gard, the Original Creator of Lara Croft, talks about the allure of Lara, why she does what she does, and what controlling such a powerful character should mean in games

    - Lead Designer Riley Cooper talks about creating an engaging tomb raiding experience, built on a dynamic physics system that has Lara interacting with hugely lush and dynamic worlds

    - Eric Lindstrom, Senior Designer comments on story elements posed to Lara in this game, and the extent of the globe across she will travel to find the answers (and dangers) she must uncover

    - Composer Troels Fohlman discusses the atmospheric qualities of creating an emotionally compelling Tomb Raider experience with elements of sound and the concept of “micro-scoring”

    The interviews are cut with exciting game footage that highlights many of the classic Tomb Raider elements returning in this game, as well as exciting new features.
    - Lara looks more alive than ever before, from the high-poly count of her character model to the way she moves smoothly through the environments

    - Going back to the Tombs….yes, please. With lush art fidelity and environmental interaction, Lara moves through a world dynamically alive with treasures and danger alike

    - The dynamic physics system enables for much greater environmental interaction from Lara to solve large scale puzzles and overcome the challenges of hidden secrets.

    At length, each of the team leads outlines what Tomb Raider fans and Action/Adventure gamers can expect from Lara and how they are creating the overall Tomb Raider experience.

    The game this is bundled with, Total Overdose: A Gunslinger’s Tale in Mexico, is an open-ended 3rd person action shooter where you play the role of ex-con Ramiro Cruz on a tequila-fueled rampage of revenge in the criminal underworld of Mexico. Blast your way through the barrios of the drug-infested town of Los Toros to the Mayan ruins deep in the jungles of Mexico. A unique set of freestyle combat moves allow you to chain together combinations of deadly kill moves that will allow you to take down your enemies while still looking good.

    Gamespot describes Total Overdose: A Gunslinger’s Tale in Mexico as “elements of Max Payne, Tony Hawk, and Robert Rodriguez’s film smashed together.”
