Tomb Raider and Hitman: Absolution to be playable on show floor.
It just wouldn’t be a Eurogamer Expo without Lara Croft. Then again, it wouldn’t be an expo without Square-Enix. To that effect, we’ll be seeing both Tomb Raider and Hitman: Absolution this year, along with developer sessions for the same.
Eurogamer operations director of Tom Bramwell said, “Lara Croft is a British icon, so it seems fitting that Crystal Dynamics should choose London’s Eurogamer Expo to give gamers an in-depth look at her latest adventure. We’re also delighted to welcome IO Interactive and Hitman: Absolution back to the Eurogamer Expo to show us more of their exciting new gameplay mode!”
IO Interactive will take the stage on September 27th with an exclusive presentation of Contracts multiplayer mode to close the first day of the show.
Crystal Dynamics, though, will hold an extended sessions on September 30th for the Crossroads demo, which amounts to over 60 minutes of stage time. That’s a lot of Lara this far off from the game’s release next year.
Best of all, both games will be on the floor throughout the expo for attendees to try out.
