Crystal Dynamics has created a whole new experience specifically designed for the digital market. Players will take control of Lara and an ancient warrior named Totec in an isometric adventure through sprawling landscapes, perilous puzzles and epic boss battles. Built with two player cooperative multiplayer in mind, players, however, can still experience the game as a solo adventure.
When Lara Croft finds the long lost Temple of Light in the mountains of Central America, she unwittingly frees an evil spirit determined to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Alongside Totec, a Mayan tribesman, you must hunt down the Mirror of Smoke in what will be a new and incredible adventure.
"We are delighted to be chosen to be a part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade line up which has always showcased the very best digital games available," said Darrell Gallagher, General Manager of Crystal Dynamics. "This is the first game from a rejuvenated Crystal Dynamics studio and our goal was to make the perfect companion piece to the Tomb Raider franchise. One which could be clearly recognized in its own space, have the familiarity of being set in the world of Lara Croft and at the same time offer fans fresh gameplay they expect from Xbox Live Arcade titles."
