So, someone's gone exploring in the PC version of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and found the hidden character packs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNcPa8ZrFHo (watch with the mute on for reduced voice confusion, trust me on this).













Its nice to see Crystal Dynamics dust off their best characters again, its a shame they couldn't mute the contrasting voices though and just have them playing together silently.

(Oh, there's also another pack for some other people who have probably been in a game or something).

I guess that's cool if you're fine with them sounding like Lara Croft and Minsc. :\

That's really cool. Shame they couldn't have got some Square-Enix characters in there instead of Kane & Lynch, though.

Will these character packs be available on consoles or is this just for the PC?

That's what the mute button is for I think.

He's just happy to be in some form of video game after seven years, let him have his moment.

Why would anyone want to play as Kane and Lynch in this.

Kain and Lightning would work pretty well in this if they could use SE characters.

Kain's smile looks hilarious in the video, too.

Cool stuff, though it is odd with the whole voices thing. Is this an actual planned download pack? Maybe they'll do something about it before it releases.

Really though, this mostly just makes me want another Soul Reaver.

Agreed, though for some reason I'm thinking people would call it an "emo vampire" or even "generic" if it was a new design shown today.

I can only hope this means they want to make younger gamers aware of the characters in some way before bringing back the IP. *crosses fingers*

Awesome. They've been in stasis for too long. :D

Also they look exactly like the same character models from Defiance (no upgrade).

Well you can't stop people from being stupid unfortunately.

I'm ready for Soul Reaver 2 3!

I'll take anything Legacy of Kain related at this point. Make Defiance 2 for XBLA/PSN/Steam and I'll buy three copies.

also, need Deus Ex character pack. JC and Paul Denton tearing shit up!

...Now I kinda wish they made the game about Kain and Raziel from the ground up. Replace the spear with the soul reaver, turn the game darker and bloodier and replace the cutscenes with Kain and Raziel arguing about the philosphical meaning of their existence. Ah well...

No. That was Tony Jay, the voice of the Elder God.

I remember this being mentioned awhile back, but I thought that by Kain they meant Kane, the weirdo guy from the Kane & Lynch games. That would have been an odd pairing I guess.
