Tomb Raider Last Revelation - Times Exclusive Level

Post by assenort »

Hi guys,

I am curious - has anyone ever seen or possessed CD-version of the add-on "The Times Exclusive Playable Level" to the 1999's PC version of Tomb Raider Last Revelation?

Apparently, there are some traces on the Internets, although I am a little doubtful about the authenticity.

I played that level - after simply downloading it off some TR fan site, I think it was a standalone, no-CD-required demo? Might've been patched, not sure what format(s) it originally came in. Do you believe the CD version to be in some way special, or is it just about confirming it exists?

It surely existed on cd, I do remember seeing the paper case + disc of it back then. It was bundled to The Times newspaper + was available to download online as well.

Edit:
You also linked one of these:

There were other sources of images back then + they were advertised in pc gaming magz too. For me it's a "Yes". :)

I remember seeing that CD back in the day, so yes, existence is not in doubt.

Thank you for the answers.

It'd be nice to have a copy of this thing, no doubt :-)

It is difficult to say if this is an image from the original CD. To me it looks more like home-made ISO compiled from the files of the stand-alone downloadable EXE installer.

It's real. I'm the source of the original images. I posted them to Tomb Raider Forums because I couldn't find anything about it online.

Please send up a proper dump and scan of the title then so we can properly preserve it.
