Tomb Raider: Underworld DLC Delayed

The Xbox 360-only downloadable "Beneath the Ashes" episode for Tomb Raider: Underworld will not hit its February 10 release date, publisher Eidos has revealed.

"An unexpected technical issue means that Beneath the Ashes will not be available to download on 10th February as planned," Eidos told Strategy Informer.

The $10 expansion takes place after the conclusion of Crystal Dynamics' action-adventure game, packing a new levels and new enemies. The second promised Xbox 360-exclusive add-on, "Lara's Shadow," is apparently still slated for March 10.

"We apologize for this delay and we are doing everything we can to bring you this exciting new content for Tomb Raider: Underworld as soon as possible," added Eidos.

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.

      I care, although I'm equally happy to wait a bit longer.

        Don't get your hopes up too high, it's over before you know it, and the story doesn't make any sense at all ;/

          Makes plenty of sense if you follow it and the story from Legend (of which Underworld is a continuation).

            Not really since the DLC should take place after the Main game, yet two characters that die in the game will still be present, even if only mentioned...

            Can't say much more, but there are a couple more of those touches that just are so wrong :S

          Are you talking about the DLC (beta tester or something?) or Underworld itself?

          I've already played and very much enjoyed Underworld.

            That was about the DLC.

            Underworld itself doesn't have too many flaws in the story indeed :)

      I want the DLC! Even though Underworld didn't get fantastic reviews, it was one of my favorite games 2008. I'd definitely go for another round. Just sad that it's 360-exclusive.

      I don't care but for other reasons - the DLC won't come out on my platform so I stopped bothering with the game after I played through it the first time
