Sega and their Iconic Character Sonic
Many of us remember the old classics such as Golden Axe, Virtual Fighter, and Crazy Taxi. They were fun games for their time, in fact many of us still enjoy playing them occasionally. However, Sega is currently working to develop them into feature films, TV shows and digital series.
Video games have been a notoriously bad choice for movie material, with very few having any notable or even moderate success. One of few successful adaptations was by Paul W.S. Anderson with the Resident Evil series. Other films, such as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, might be enjoyable as ‘B’ movies, but even ‘A-List’ casting didn’t save them from failing in the box office. Many game based movies such as ‘House of the Dead‘ don’t even rate as enjoyable, by any means.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Crystal Dynamic’s follow up to the co-optastic Guardian of Light, will be getting a special Gold Edition this winter.
The Gold Edition will come with a cool mini Lara Figurine, an art book with brand new concept art, a map of the Overworld, the game of course and the season pass. Also up for grabs will be retailer exclusive skins and loot to help Lara solve puzzles and survive combat challenges. The different skins and retailers are:
- Amazon.com – Deus Ex pack, augment Lara in style with skins based upon the tech focused game. Get a set of skins from the world as well as Adam Jensen’s rifle and the Augment ring which reduces the cost of treasure chests by 20%.
- Gamestop – Lara Croft Legend pack, deck out Lara and co with skins from the famed adventurer’s fabled journeys and score some gear like a golden pistol and the Legend ring which grants health regeneration and a more powerful torch.
- Steam and digital – Hitman pack, murder fools with flair with these skins from the Hitman universe. Gear includes Agent 47’s Signature Silverballers and the Agent ring with grants more powerful weapons and bombs.
The Season Pass will be available for separate purchase alongside the game and will include the Icy Death and Twisted Gears DLC packs, all future DLC packs and 6 player skins. The Season Pass does not include the retailer incentives. No pricing is available as of press time for either the pass or the Gold Edition.
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will hit PC, Xbox One and PS4 on December 9, 2014.
