"Xbox Live Marketplace offers a platform of such dynamic exposure to bring Lara closer to new gamers and her existing fans," said Matt Gorman, Senior Brand Manager for Tomb Raider "We are expecting the same level of anticipation and interest in Lara and her new game on Xbox Live Marketplace as we do with the fantastic Tomb Raider online community."
Delivering unbelievable visuals that take full advantage of Microsoft's next-generation video game and entertainment system, Lara's premiere on Xbox 360 is grounded in the series' tomb raiding roots.
