Lara Croft Xbox 360 Co-Op Patch Dropping This Wednesday

And so does the game's first bit of DLC, "All The Trappings."

Remember that co-op update for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light that was supposed to hit Xbox Live a million years ago (Standard Internet Time)? It's finally making its way to the service tomorrow afternoon, Eidos has promised via its official message board.

Hey, before you go, there's something else we think you should know. A second piece of Guardian of Light-related content is hitting Xbox Live this Wednesday, too. It's a DLC pack called "All The Trappings," and it's free for 30 days because Eidos is a bit sorry that you've had to wait and wants to give you something for your patience. Good, doggies.
 


Details on what's in All The Trappings are light for whatever reason, but we do know that it's a “a brand new area to conquer" and it "features a combination of puzzle, exploration and combat experiences.” Check. Check. Check. Yep, sounds like Guardian of Light, alright.

By the way, the PC and PSN versions of the game will still be getting the content, but no hard date has been announced. "The co-op and DLC update for PlayStation 3 and PC players will be coming soon," the post reads. "More details to follow."

Not getting the game till coop comes to the pc version.

This was actually what a friend and I were waiting for to get this game.  Hoping the online co-op is actually decent and not too laggy.

Hysterical.  What a fail.

If anyone is up for it hit me up on the 360 and then we can co-op this game.
GT is on my achivements page.

Too little, too late. What a shame. I'm not doubting if the new DLC is fun or not, but they could have seriously had something great if the co-op shipped on release day proper.

Probably would've been the first Eidos game I bought in years. But then they take the one thing why PC gamers are interested in it and do it wrong. Without even explaining why. 
That's all I want in situations like these. A valid explaination.

I really like this game. It was much more fun than I was expecting and it was one of the few games my girlfriend was interested in playing co-op with me. If anyone was on the fence because of the lack of online co-op, I definitely recommend picking it up.

Once again waiting for the co op patch to release!  There is no possible way this can live up to it's hype anymore...
 
PS:  The single player game is really good even without the co op.

Great game, played it coop, maybe it should be specified that it is ONLINE coop that the patch is about since offline coop already works flawlessly ;)

Such an awesome couch co-op game.  Maybe the best ever isometric 2 player game.  So much love!

Posted by jonnyboy

'Bout time. 100% the single player so a friend and I are gonna wipe our save game and go through it again. The game was built for 2 player, cutscenes, elaborate puzzles, the way it was meant to be played.

Finshed this game couch co-op with a friend, and am looking forward to the new levels. Good times.

This has been a great game for couch co-op with the wife, so I'm not all that concerned with online.

Posted by Azteck

Christ. It took them this long to push it out? I had completely forgotten about this game

Posted by seanwithoutyou

still not worth 1200 points when games like Shadow Complex are on XBLA

Posted by alpha_rudy@hotmail.com

little too late, i stopped playing this game a month ago.

Posted by rbanke

i hate the phrase '____ is dropping'. dropping from where?

Posted by beard_of_zeus

Finally! This will be a good excuse for me to go back and finish collecting all the treasures and such.

Posted by davidjohnkeen

Better late than never I guess, now I might actually look at buying this game.

@ManlyBeast: You are very right to do so..
Posted by buft

its about time it dropped, been waiting a few months, sucks for pc and ps3 owners that they still have to wait and is there any confirmation that their DLC will also be free?

Posted by ThatRoss

Really good game, if too long...best co-op since Goonies on c64...

Posted by Liquidtrailz

About time, ive been waiting to finish

Posted by pweidman

Finally.  Looking forward to playing some online co-op at last and seeing how the game was really designed and meant to be played. Any other bombers who are down as well?  Hit my GT on XBL if so.  Include a message please so I know what/who.  GT=PWEID5 :).
