Fans of the Lara Croft video game series can prepare for a new addition to the Tomb Raider legacy. Microsoft recently announced the release of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light on Xbox LIVE and for the Xbox 360.

The latest game is the first fully downloadable title from developer Crystal Dynamics and the first in the Lara Croft series to offer isometric camera views as well as a two-player cooperative option.

"We believe we have delivered a game which opens up new types of gameplay that will excite not only Tomb Raider fans, but all fans of digital gaming," said Darrell Gallagher, general manager of Crystal Dynamics. "The launch of Guardian of Light is just the beginning, we have a lot of additional content planned and we will be offering the first DLC pack for free for the first 30 days, exclusively on the Xbox 360, so that gamers can get a taste of some of the exciting extras we have in store."

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light begins with Lara searching for an ancient artifact called the Mirror of Smoke. Upon reaching the mirror, she is ambushed by a mercenary army who steals the mirror and releases an ancient evil being named Xolotl, who proceeds to wipe out the armed force and escape with the artifact. The disturbance also awakens the Guardian of Light, Totec, who Lara must join forces with.
