As part of today's PAX East panel Lara Croft: The Undisputed Queen of Gaming, composer Nathan McCree announced his latest project: The Tomb Raider Suite, an all-new album based on his original music from the first three Tomb Raider games.
The collection will include all the original fan favorites, plus extended versions of many pieces, performed by a live orchestra and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. In addition to a CD/digital download release, there will be a live performance at a major London venue in conjunction with the Tomb Raider 20th anniversary festivities later this year.
The entire process—from composition to concert hall—will also be the subject of a documentary entitled Tomb Raider: Remastered, produced by David Burns of Eden Films and directed by Matthew Longfellow, who has previously documented such music legends as Pink Floyd, Metallica, Blondie, and Queen.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for the fans, as well as me, to hear the music as I had always intended it," McCree told the official Tomb Raider Blog.
