Lara gets episodic on the 360

Tomb Raider: Anniversary will be available to download in bite-size chunks, starting in September.


As revealed by Entertainment Software Rating Board listings, Lara Croft will be bringing her latest adventure--an updated remake of the very first Tomb Raider game--to Microsoft's Xbox 360 in episodic form.

The Eidos title has already been released on the PC and PlayStation 2 and will also be coming to the PlayStation Portable and the Wii. The newly confirmed 360 version will initially be available to download exclusively from the Xbox Live service in four episodes (despite the ESRB rating five installments)--the first two will be out in September, with the final two coming "shortly afterwards." However, there's one catch--gamers must own a copy of the 360 version of Tomb Raider Legend to download Anniversary.

The episodes will cost 2,400 Microsoft points (approximately £20.40) in total, and additional content, including picture and theme packs, will also be released, although no dates were given for these. A full retail version of the Xbox 360 edition will also be released before the end of the year.
