Real Life Tomb Raiders Unite: Locate and Discover Hidden Treasures Around the World!
In one of the most unique ways to promote a video game to date, Geocoaching.com paired up with Crystal Dynamics™ to offer gamers a chance to flex their inner scavenger. After you’ve ignited your secret fantasy of being Lara Croft™, be prepared to hit the ground running with the possibility to participate in a real life Tomb Raider® experience. Geocoaching.com allows members to either use GPS tracking or other navigational techniques to locate “geocaches” anywhere in the world. With cryptic clues as your guide, downloading any of these challenge maps will point you into the direction of a cache, and the treasure that lies therein will belong to you.
Crystal Dynamics™ will play a huge part in the location-based adventures and the hiding of these caches in hopes that the experience will “…embody the spirit of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft’s drive to discover new adventures and locations.”
Jeremy Irish, CEO of Groundspeak, the company which runs Geocaching.com says, “Many of us have been playing Tomb Raider since the first game launched in 1996, and we are excited that Geocaching.com is partnering with Crystal Dynamics on this project… Tomb Raider is all about exploration and discovery. It inspires the adventurer in all of us, much like geocaching does, and we are excited about the opportunities that this project presents for both geocachers and Tomb Raider fans worldwide.” [SOURCE: Geocoaching.com’s Blog]
