Presumably to make the sting of that delayed online co-op (http://www.joystiq.com/2010/08/06/lara-croft-and-the-guardian-of-light-will-not-have-online-co-op/) less painful, Square Enix will offer the first DLC release for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (http://www.joystiq.com/2010/08/16/review-lara-croft-and-the-guardian-of-light/) to Xbox 360 players for free -- for one month.

Now that's cool.

Very nice.....and hoping the extra characters are from a previous Crystal Dynamics franchise....about 2 vampires.....got along, then didnt, then did, then didnt.

Legacy of Kain. :D

That would be wicked. But maybe they donīt want to give us false hope. :(

I am REALLY hoping they somehow include Gex as one of the DLC characters...that alone would make me buy this thing. I'm still on the fence though...if I buy this, I would have 2 Summer of Arcade games...meaning if I picked up Limbo, Hydro Thunder, and Castlevania...one of them would be free, or they would all essentially be 800 points :-\.

Decisions, decisions.

I'm not even a Castlevania fan, but I'd definitely recommend that one out of the three. I easily put 20 hours into it, don't have all the achievements yet, and it's a blast.

Unless you're looking for an easy 200, in that case, Limbo.

Wrong on several counts. 3 games only gets a 400 MSP bonus. You have to get all 5 for 1200.

Anyone care to guess as to how much these dlc packs will cost? 80msp? 160 msp? 240 msp? etc.

(the article doesn't say)

I was going to wait for DotW to pick this up but I may have to do it early to save on dlc...

Just downloaded it and played through the first mission... I like it...

Glad to hear there will be free DLC, at least for a month. Have to keep my eyes open for that!

My guess is that the first DLC pack is going to be more characters (I've heard it's going to be Kane & Lynch). That's not really a valuable DLC proposition if you ask me to get me to buy it on 360, even if it's free for 30 days.

I've sat at the purchase screen twice today for about 10 minutes, and both times I could not pull the trigger because it doesn't have online co-op. You might say 'just wait a month to buy it then' but then I miss the Summer of Arcade deal, so either I buy it now and try to play it by myself or in a month when no one's playing it (XBLA titles don't retain their audiences that well).

Another thing that bugs me is that they do not say anywhere on that purchase screen that the game doesn't have online co-op yet. I'm pretty sure that's false advertising.

wasnt worried about no coop for a month, and now this free DLC (even if it kind of sucks) means its a definite buy


I dont see the point of waiting a month to buy and play it.....when you can buy it now, possibly get in on the summer of arcade deal and then the Free DLC (which I guess is free to everyone regardless of a buy or not)......but anyways Id rather buy it now play SP...and then in a month get a little re-invigoration with coop

Uhm, he wrote that if he buys this he has two summer of arcade games and therefore bying the last three would give him five games, right? ;)

I had no idea about the 400/1200 points back deal.
I might as well pick up Hydro Thunder too then for 1200 points back. =)

Now that's cool.

That dampens the annoyance a bit I guess, still though the future addons will be $5 most likely, and that little pricey and adds up

When is the free DLC out?

CD have said "October to December" as a relase window for the 5 DLC packs. The first DLC will be free to 360 users for the first 30 days of relase as a "SORRY" for the no online co-op.

While I'm disappointed about the lack of online co op for a month, single player is really fun. The free dlc is great!

Cool free dlc for a sweet game..I'll take that anyday of the week

This game was already sweet. Even though it was rather short going through the first time alone in SP, I want to play it again all the way through in Coop with a friend, and possibly when it is patched finally, online on Live. Plus I'm still going back through and playing again to get all the Relics. So yes it's a little disappointing that it didn't come with Live functionality built in, but free DLC I would say more than makes up for it.

I hope this doesn't require a gold membership sub to take advantage of the free dlc.
