Angel of Darkness RELEASED!
US fans will be happy to hear that the long-awaited new Tomb Raider game, the Angel of Darkness, has finally been released. It isn't clear when exactly the UK version will be out, but should be released shortly nonetheless. It is not yet available in South Africa, either, but can be pre-ordered online from, South Africa's premier online shopping mall. On that note, Paramount Picture's new movie "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" will be scheduled to be released in the US on the 25th of July.

Tomb Raider news update
We apologise for the lack of Tomb Raider news lately. Lara's Backpack hasn't been updated in over 2 months! We've made a summary of news that's happened in these months:

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
The most depressing news is that the long awaited AOD's release has been delayed! It should (hopefully) be out in February 2003. There may be very little AOD news in the next few months.

There are a wide range of interviews on AOD at! The best ones are:
OPM Interview with Lara Croft
OPM Interview takeouts (this one is a must see!)
Jill De Jong
The Making of AOD

Site updates
We're still busy developing a few sections such as the TRMovie page and Angel of Darkness. Check back with us in about 2 or 3 weeks to see if they're here!
