We've heard rumblings of this sort in the past, but now it's pretty hard to ignore. Speaking to Official Xbox Magazine UK, Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that not only is there no sequel in the works for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, but nothing further is planned for the sub-series in the future. For a game that had one of the best co-op experiences in the last several years, that's very sad news indeed.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is not only one of the best downloadable co-op games this generation, but arguably one of the best full stop. 2 gamers can play in local or online co-op over a seriously impressive number of levels, but even they come to the end. That's unless you take part in this week’s...
The Xbox Live Deal of the Week offers a great co-op game at a great price. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is 50% off. You can pick up the two player co-op title for 600 Microsoft points, which translates to about $7.50. We gave the isometric action/puzzler a 4.5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light also happened to win our coveted Best Downloadable Co-Op Title of the Year Award. A slew of DLC is available for half off as well.
Five new downloadable packs are now available on Steam for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. This little isometric gem won our Best Downloadable Co-Op Game of the Year award for 2010. The first pack actually comes as a free title update and adds the titular characters from the Kane and Lynch games.
The votes were tallied in the contest of the DLC - and it looks like Kain and Raziel have won as the first set of co-op characters to download for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. The duo beat out Kane and Lynch as the other set of characters that would be available in the game, both sets of characters are available to download now - one free, one not.
A flamin' good deal!
Good news, iGamers! Co-Optimus has recently confirmed that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has co-op on the iPhone and iPad. We loved this isometric action title, which got a great co-op review. The iOS versions are identical to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade versions, minus the DLC. Co-op is available through wi-fi between any of the devices - that means iPhone gamers can play with iPad gamers and vice versa.
Crystal Dynamics' buxom spelunker is promiscuously making her way around the block, it seems. Tomorrow, December 16th, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light flirts with the iOS by way of iTunes. Complete with wifi and Bluetooth co-op, the full game (minus DLC packs) will retail for a measly $6.99 on the iPhone and $9.99 on the iPad.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is back in the spotlight after its initial release, bringing us a brand new map pack just in time for the holidays. This "Hazardous Reunion" DLC pack includes 4 maps and a new character - whether that character is friend or foe is a mystery for now.
Some new characters are coming to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Confirmed by the Crystal Dynamics Twitter feed, criminal bad boys Kane and Lynch will be available as playable characters through upcoming DLC.
And so it is complete. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has been patched on the PC to support online co-op play. This brings to end a 3 month journey where the feature was delayed on all platforms and slowly patched into each version.
Like the mighty spear of Totec, the online co-op patch for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has been thrust into the PlayStation 3 version of the game. This comes after the 360 version was patched with the same content plus some free DLC that is not available on the PS3. Online co-op was a feature that was much desired by those that played Guardian of Light, but sadly was missing from the launch of the game.
Just a friendly reminder for those of you who already purchased Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Online Co-op is going live tomorrow on October 27th. To sweeten the deal, and probably to remind you that the game still exists, the first downloadable content for the game is free to Xbox LIVE subscribers.
I really, really enjoy playing Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light despite the glaring lack of online support, but many of our own community have skipped over this title for that very reason. If all goes well from a technical standpoint, Crystal Dynamics is finally offering a twice-delayed online support patch on October 27th. This first patch will only be for the Xbox 360 version, with PlayStation 3 and PC patches still promised.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is still scheduled to release on Steam and the PlayStation Network on September 28th - that's a week from today. But like the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game, which was released in August, these versions are going to be shipping sans the online co-op mode.
