Eidos To Release PC Level Editor
Due for release November 2000, the PC format of Tomb Raider Chronicles will include a free version of Core Design's level editor that will allow fans to create and play their own Tomb Raider adventures.
Designed by the original Tomb Raider team and modified for each Tomb Raider game, the editor software is unique to Core Design and Tomb Raider. Having received numerous requests from fans for the release of this tool, Core Design is now working on a modified version suitable for consumer use. The resulting system will allow users to create levels using the same tools that the Tomb Raider programmers use themselves.
The software includes a tutorial, allowing users to familiarize themselves with each tool before designing their own levels. Core Design and Eidos plan further support via dedicated web pages offering advice, troubleshooting and download updates such as new textures and enemies.
