Ms. Lara Croft, the apple of many-a-gamers' eye, will be paying visits to many gamers' houses tonight. Eidos has announced that a whole slew of Tomb Raider: Legend content will be headed to the Xbox Live Marketplace for download on the Xbox 360 today.

Scheduled for release today is the game's demo, an exclusive trailer, and game-related themes and picture packs. It's unclear if the Xbox 360 demo is the same preview that was released for PC users. The picture pack will not only feature snapshots of the digital Lara Croft, but also of real-life Lara Croft promotional model Karima Adebibe. As of press time, the trailer was the only piece of new content ready for download.

[UPDATE] After being AWOL from Marketplace, the demo is now available for download. The file weighs in at 641MB.

Tomb Raider: Legend is rated T for Teen and will be available on the PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360 on April 11. The current-gen console versions will be priced at $49.99, the PC version at $39.99, and the Xbox 360 version at $59.99. GameCube and PSP versions will also be released later this year.
