EIDOS EXPANDS ON EXTENDED CHAPTERS

[ October 7th 2008 ]

The announcement by Eidos to produce extended chapters exclusively for owners of Microsoft's Xbox 360 video-games console has been met with mixed reaction, especially from those planning to steer Lara Croft through her latest adventure on one of the additional five platforms being catered for. We checked in with Eidos who shed some light on the decision.

"Microsoft asked us how we could extend the fantastic Tomb Raider: Underworld gameplay experience, exclusively, for their thriving Xbox Live community and these two new downloadable chapters were the result." says Eidos, who also confirm there are no plans for additional downloadable content for PS3.

Beneath The Ashes, the first extended chapter, will be released late December in time for Christmas. Lara's Shadow, the second installment, will debut in early 2009. The downloadable chapters will only work in conjunction with the retail 360 Tomb Raider Underworld disc.

On the decision to exclusive partner with Microsoft, Eidos says: "Microsoft asked us how we could extend the fantastic Tomb Raider: Underworld gameplay experience for their thriving Xbox Live community and this exclusive content was the result."

"Both extended chapters feature individual storylines, based in different environments and with very different mission objectives and gameplay. They are linked to Underworld, they take place following events that occur during Underworld. "

On the subject of a forthcoming Tomb Raider Underworld demo, Eidos confirms the demo - for both Xbox 360 and PC owners - is "based upon the first section of the second level, Thailand."
