Lara Croft Swings Into Gear With Guardian of Light Gameplay Footage

This summer, Lara Croft is swinging into action, albeit a little differently this time as the new game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, has dropped the “Tomb Raider” moniker and will be a downloadable-only title. Crystal Dynamics will be staying clear of the classic third-person platforming roots the series is well known for. Instead, the title is aiming to deliver an arcade-inspired adventure. Guardian of Light will also feature cooperative play, and all of this is exemplified in a brand new gameplay trailer.

It was revealed recently that Guardian of Light will be releasing exclusively on the Xbox 360 for four weeks due to a Microsoft deal with Crystal Dynamics. A release date for the PlayStation Network version of the title is still pending, however, one should be revealed in the coming weeks.
