Indiana Jones® and the Emperor’s Tomb™ (2003)

About This Game

Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb is an action-adventure video game developed by The Collective, Inc. and published by LucasArts in 2003 for the Xbox, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2 and OS X. It features cover art by Drew Struzan. The game is an adventure of fictional archeologist Indiana Jones. The story takes place in 1935, between the events of Indiana Jones and the Shrine of the Sea Devil and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The tomb mentioned in the title is that of China’s first Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

As Indiana Jones, you’ll travel to 1935 China to prevent a powerful artifact from falling into evil hands. This globe-spanning adventure pits you against evil Nazis and the Asian underworld. It’ll take more than just a trusty whip and pistol to avoid the perils of the Emperor’s Tomb.

Indy’s latest adventure plays out in dramatic fashion thanks to new gameplay features such as brawling combat. This time, in addition to using his trademark whip and pistol, Indy can engage in fierce hand-to-hand combat against foes, many of whom are well-versed in martial arts.

Improvised weapons such as shovels, chairs and table legs also can be used to fend off adversaries. The result is a more immersive and more Indy-like gameplay experience, set amidst spine-tingling movie-like action sequences, such as a rickshaw chase in Hong Kong and a spectacular battle atop moving gondolas in the South China Sea area.


  • Explore levels across the globe from Ceylon and Istanbul to Hong Kong and beyond.
  • Shotguns, submachine guns, improvised weapons – and of course, Indy’s trusty whip and pistol.
  • Fierce fighting action and hand-to-hand combat.
  • Original storyline with new villains, wicked enemies and an alluring partner.
  • Leap, swim, climb and punch your way through exotic locales.
