Eidos reveals E3 line-up; New Tomb Raider gets top-secret treatment? May 30, 2009

Eidos has issued a press release revealing their E3 line-up, which includes Batman: Arkham Asylum, Just Cause 2, and Mini Ninjas, with no signs of a public Tomb Raider reveal. Oh, but that’s not stopping the blogosphere from speculating about Lara’s return.

Twitter has spawned a new ‘net-culture of insta-news and one-liner blog-rants, and has also become, of all things, an all-around rumor-generator that tickles everyone’s inner fanboy senses…and, sad to say, we’ve fallen victim to it.

Following a tweet-tease from Eidos community manager Keir Edmonds about “a special announcement in the next couple of days,” another twitter who claims to have insider info on the upcoming E3 points to a new ‘Raider being announced at the expo.

While Edmonds’ tweet could very well be about any of Eidos’ other major titles, the anonymous E3 tipster specifically makes mention of a new Tomb Raider title that will “revolutionize” the series, echoing Eidos pres Ian Livingstone’s excitement about “remarkable things” that will “surprise people and reinvigorate the franchise.”

Of course we’re filing this under rumors for now, and while we are hopeful, we’re definitely not counting on it. There’s also been mention of the next Hitman title, and even that‘s not part of Eidos’ official line-up. Oh well, there’s your bull(sh*t)dozer.

Keir Edmonds, Eidos’ global community manager, has just announced on Tomb Raider Fourms that the PS3 trophy patch for Tomb Raider Underworld will be released on 28th May. This follows the February announcement that the patch was underway. The update comes with some “fixes” according to Edmonds, “but nothing major or cosmetic.”

Yay for PS3 players then.
