Early Tomb Raider Beta Demo (May 1996) [PSX]

As a response to our Tomb Raider 2 Beta video, gemna79 sent us the raw video material of a playable beta version of Tomb Raider 1 on the Sony PlayStation. That’s a nice contribution, thanks.

This version appears to be in an earlier stage than the Work-in-Progress PC demo that we already posted once. As you can see, it’s quite unfinished and many features are still missing or have been changed later. It features the City of Vilcabamba level, but gemna79 said, if you go further at the end of this video, the game will definitely crash. So, we can’t see the very last part of this level.

This demo has been presented on the E3, so it’s supposedly dated around May 1996.
