Possible Retail Price Revealed

In an interview with Eurogamer Karl Stewart of Crystal Dynamics revealed further details. The most important one being the retail price of around 10 Pounds/1200 MS Points they are aiming for with The Guardian of Light. He further revealed that the game will be ready for a release in July/August and that the exact date will depend on Microsoft and Sony. A simultaneous release for all three platforms (PS3, Xbox 360 and PC) is planned. Once again it was stressed, that the development of The Guardian of Light is independent from Tomb Raider 9. Depending on how the new game does, a sequel may follow or elements may be incorporated in future developments.

In a further news article on IGN it is stated that you collect points during the level by defeating enemies and collecting treasures. If the health bar runs out, you can respawn next to your partner, but it will cost quite a few points. These points will be posted to the leader board at the end of the level.

Official Website Updated

The official website for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has been updated yesterday. You can choose between a UK and a US version. Flash is required.

The introduction video tells us the background story of the game and introduces Lara's new partner Totec and their rival Xolotl.

Quoted

According to Aztec myth, the region we call the Yucatan is an ancient battleground where the human followers of Totec, the Guardian of Light, once waged a catastrophic war against the demonic forces of Xolotl, the Keeper of Darkness.

It is written that Xolotl called upon the power of an artifact known as the Mirror of Smoke to summon forth a horde of unspeakable horrors from the Abyss.

Totec's warriors were slaughtered in the battle that followed, but Totec himself survived. He found a way to turn the Mirror's power back against the evil god. Xolotl was imprisoned within the mirror, and the descendants of Totec went on to forge a mighty empire that lasted until the arrival of the conquistadors.

As for what happened to the Mirror of Smoke, the ancient texts are vague. Some say it was hidden in a secret place, that the mirror was lost forever. But if there's one thing I've learned it's that nothing is lost forever.

PC and PS3 Version in September

In an interview with Eurogamer Karl Stewart revealed, that in order to get "Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light" to be part of the "Summer of Arcade promotion", they had to make an exclusive deal with Microsoft, which demands that the game will be an Xbox exclusive for at least 4 weeks. The game comes to Xbox Live on August 18th, so PC and PS3 gamers unfortunately have to wait until September to get their hands on the game.

Quoted

Karl Stewart: We hope to have details in the next seven to 10 days. As with all arcade titles, irrespective of platform, you have to go through your submissions before they agree and approve a date. Unlike a disc-based title where we can pick our window, you have to go by what the first parties approve and give you a date, to make sure you're not coming out on the same day as five other titles. They like to manage the release window accordingly. We have requested a specific date and hopefully we'll get that and it's not too long after the 360 SKU.

Eurogamer: Is there a chance that the PC and PS3 versions will release on the same day as the Xbox 360 version?

Karl Stewart: No. The agreement with Microsoft is, in order to participate in their hugely successful Summer of Arcade promotion there is a window of exclusivity. That window of exclusivity is a set four weeks.
