Lara's Shadow Turns Tomb Raider Into Prince Of Persia

The Lara's Shadow downloadable content for Tomb Raider: Underworld puts players in control of the doppleganger - a faster, stronger version of Lara Croft with the power to slow time.

The Lara Croft doppleganger first appeared during the main story of Tomb Raider: Underworld, created to best Lara at her own game. Of course the creature fails, but what if it didn't? Apparently we'd be playing a Prince of Persia game. The doppleganger is a melee fighting machine, running, jumping, and beating the hell out of everything in her path. It certainly looks a lot more entertaining than standard Tomb Raider fare, mainly because they've taken Lara's model, swapped abilities, and created a whole new way to play the game.

The Xbox 360-exclusive Lara's Shadow downloadable content is currently scheduled for a March 10th release.


    Actually, the doppleganger first appeared in the very first Tomb Raider, and in the Anniversary remake. This new doppleganger is the updated version of the original, now with a mind of its own, rather than simply copying Lara.

    Lara's Doppelganger is really really cool and this is NOT its first appearence.It first appeared in tomb raider anniversary as an outfit you can were on Lara and it also appeared in tomb raider 1. it was dorment like a volcano until now!
    now Lara's Doppelganger is obviously stronger, faster, and more dangerous than the normal Lara Croft is usually! this game is really cool and i wish i had xbox360 but i just got the wii and i can not get a new gaming system until i earn enough or get rid of one.
