PS2.IGN’s rumors report is saying that Lara will be getting a lot grittier on the PS2. According to their report, Lara hit rock bottom after her death (go figure). She’s broke and hooked on drugs. She’s eventaully picked up by some spied who pick her up and get her beck into shape.
Gameplay is reportedly going the way of Metal Gear since the classic TR interface is getting stale.
All of this is rumors, but it might be what Edios needs to do to get her back in front of the gaming pack.
