Yeah, the refounding of Lucasfilm games left me unimpressed with their short trailer, but it did not contain Indiana Jones, and that is indeed something to look forward to. Hopefully they don't fuck it up.

and with that... this is suddenly one of the games i'm most excited to see

I really hope this means LucasfilmGames will do the same thing with Star Wars once the EA licensing deal expires and just license them out to anyone who wants to make them

My question is what type of game this will be? If they can make this game using the Tomb Raider/uncharted Formula than it has my interests. Iv always wanted to see a Jones game with that direction. His the character both Lara and Nathan were inspired by.
