As I mentioned in my previous post, the game will be released as a digital download only (no CD/DVD version). Crystal has now confirmed that it will be available for PS3 through the PlayStation Network, Xbox 360 through Xbox LIVE marketplace, and Windows PC for around $15.
The press info also includes a little backstory:
"Two thousand years ago, an epic battle was waged between the armies of good and evil for a powerful artifact, The Mirror of Smoke. The fearless leader of the Army of Light, Totec, rose against all odds to defeat the evil overlord Xolotl and gain control over the item. Wielding the great power of the Mirror of Smoke, Totec banished Xolotl from the world. Now known as The Guardian of Light, Totec entombed himself with the mirror in The Temple of Light with to prevent it from ever falling into sinister hands."
In the game, Lara Croft teams up with Totec to retrieve the mirror and vanquish Xolotl. Along with a single-player mode, gamers can team up in either on- or offline co-op mode, with one player controlling each character. Guardian of Light features a fixed isometric camera view, but the developers promise huge levels and fast-paced gameplay focusing on exploration, puzzle-solving and combat, with multiple paths and solutions possible in each level. Enemies will include hordes of undead, as well as a number of challenging boss battles.
