Eidos announced today that a Tomb Raider: Underworld demo will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace some time this month. In addition, two downloadable chapters containing up to six hours of new gameplay have been announced, both exclusive to Xbox 360.
The first new chapter, titled Beneath the Ashes, will be available for download on Marketplace this Christmas while the second, titled Lara’s Shadow, will be available in early 2009. Beneath the Ashes is set after the Underworld story has finished and features new environments, unlockable secrets and an expanded range of enemies. Lara’s Shadow will introduce players to a new kind of playable character that is said to create a unique Tomb Raider experience.
No pricing has yet been announced for the chapters and its is unknown whether the demo will be available on the PlayStation 3. Expect more on this soon. Tomb Raider: Underworld is set to ship on November 18 in North America (November 21 in Europe) on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, and PC.
