On June 8, 2006 a videogame trailer showing footage of a new Tomb Raider game was published at planetlara.com. The title of the trailer claimed that the game title was Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition, a game by Core Design for PSP. The trailer showcased remastered environments from the original, 1996th Tomb Raider game, with new animations and interactions. The video was then taken down but re-emerged again in the next few months. Tomb of Ash dedicated many years collating the information on this cancelled game that you can now browse on this page.

On December 31st 2020 we uploaded an early build and assets from Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition on archive.org. We’re currently working with a number of dedicated Tomb Raider fans to restore Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition to a playable state.

We’re looking for programmers who could help us restore Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition. We particularly need help with C++ and/or Maya C++ Api. If you are able to help us please get in touch.

PC VERSION:

1 download artbase and extract it to C: drive (it is important you have a folder structure like this C:\artbase\tombraider etc. the game won’t run if it’s not placed on C drive).
2 download patch.zip extract it into c:\artbase replacing any files. This will allow you play the game using the official main menu.
3 (optional) download Gh0stblade_-_XProger_level_select_patch.zip extract it into c:\artbase replacing any files. This will allow you to select a level before the start of the game. Main menu will not be accessible but you can visit The Lost Plateau which is not accessible via main menu.
4. Run the game via the bat file in c:\artbase folder
 
PSP Version:
Download TRAE-PSP.iso.  Please note that this is a highly unstable PSP build of the game compiled by Gh0stblade.
The main difference between PSP and PC build are additional animations and various lighting effects that make it look much grander on PSP.  This ISO will only work on PSP consoles and emulators with 64mb of RAM. You can emulate it on PC or mobile using PPSSPP (make sure to disable fast memory and set Lower Resolution for effects to AGGRESSIVE)

You must use either Xbox 360 or a PS4 controller. You must plug the controller in before launching the game. You can run this with keyboard but you will not be able to jump or do much.

Xbox 360 controller (partially supported, PS4 controller recommended)

Start+Select+Y+X – Fly mode on

Start+Select+y+a – fly mode off

 

Dual Shock 4  (playstation 4 controller connected via USB, no apps required):

L2+R2+Δ+Ο enables fly mode
press L2+R2+square to disable it

L2+R2+Share buttons: activate freecam, R1 to place Lara, O to quit.

L1+L2+R1+R2+Options – Level Select Debug

Press F7 to enter editor mode. This will allow you to make permanent changes to the levels. To make changes permanent you need to make sure that all.game.logic file in the folder of the levels are not set to “read only”.Make sure to backup levels before doing this.

Press ~ to open ingame console:

What files are these?

This is a cancelled Indiana Jones game by Core Design. It was a re-skin version of the cancelled Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition that Core Design was developing soon after TRAE was cancelled.

What are the two archives?

“Artbase” contains the main core of the assets – locations, character models, tools used for development, geometry etc. This is currently the most complete collection of assets. The “levels jan 2006” archive contains certain level files that have different timestamp  from those in “artbase”. They could be exactly the same files, we currently don’t know but think it could be important to preserve all the versions for historical value.

What are the tools?

  • Inside Artbase\tombraider\sources\globals you will find a converter by Nakamichi. This converter will allow you to convert level geometry from “globals” folder into .ma and .fbx formats and extract textures. It works from command line so just give it a name of the file you want to extract and it will create a subfolder with .fbx, .ma and textures. This could be useful for TRLE enthusiasts or artists. Please show us what you create!
  • Artbase\tombraider\converters\animsequencerui will allow you to view character models located in Artbase\tombraider\sources\models\characters (you will need Visual Studio installed for it to work). 
  • Other tools in Artbase\tombraider\converters\ could be useful to understand how file formats work. Some of them are Maya converters which are obsolete. You will need old Maya 7.0 (this is the one that was used in production of these files) to make them work.

I get a missing DLL error (added 01.01.2020).

Make sure visual studio is installed: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/

Hey I want to look into this but I’m not very technical, can you guide me?

No, please seek help elsewhere, we are not able to troubleshoot/guide everyone 🙂  We will not respond to any emails asking to help, we’re very sorry we just don’t have time. We published all the instructions and everyone is able to follow them. Please read them carefully.

Is this playable? Is this on Ps4? Can I play it on Xbox? 

You can play it on Windows PC only using the patches that are included in the link above.  We uploaded a PSP build too but it will only work either via emulators or a modded PSP. 

RoomCleaner_1-0

This Blender Python script that should help clean up the room geometry a bit. You just select the Room Empties of the rooms you want it to clean up, run the script and it will join all objects in a room, then merge vertices by distance, delete loose geometry and finally separate disconnected meshes back into separate objects. Instructions are in the ReadMe.

Nakamichi Level and Texture Extractor.
 This converter allows you to convert level geometry from “Artbase\tombraider\sources\globals” folder into .ma and .fbx formats and extract textures. It is already included with TRAE and is placed in “globals” folder. It works from command line.  If .fbx geometry is missing textures then download a free trial of Maya and open converted .ma file instead. Once in Maya you can export it to any format you prefer (including .fbx) with textures preserved.
 
Model Viewer
 Artbase\tombraider\converters\animsequencerui
Allows you to view character models located in Artbase\tombraider\sources\models\characters (you will need Visual Studio installed for it to work). 
 
– Other tools in Artbase\tombraider\converters\ could be useful to understand how file formats work. Some of them are Maya converters which are obsolete. You will need old Maya 7.0 (this is the one that was used in production of these files – https://archive.org/details/maya_70 ) to make them work.
