It’s no secret that you will be playing as Lara’s doppelganger in Lara’s Shadow, the second of two downloadable content for the 360 version of Tomb Raider Underworld. We’ve seen her superjumping abilities in the full game and we’ve caught glimpse of her superfast hand-to-hand combat skills facing off with Lara in Croft Manor. Needless to say, fans have been wondering if they will be of any use in the actual downloadable add-on.

Well, we might just have the answer.

Jack Croft of Tomb Raider Forums has posted the Achievements list for Lara’s Shadow. What’s worthy of note is that you will be speed-running through a certain Transformer and a Refinery, earning you the “Right of Passage” and the “Refinery Speed Run” achievements respectively. But what really caught our attention is the “Shadow Combat Master” achievement, which becomes unlocked when you “complete the combat tutorial in Lara’s Shadow.

Make of that what you will, but we’re pretty sure we won’t just be using pistols and Lara’s high kicks in this shadowy excursion. We’ll find out for sure come March 10.


Japanese Underworld gets PS3 Trophies January 31, 2009

Unlike its US and EU counterparts, the Japanese version of Tomb Raider Underworld for the PS3, released earlier this week, seems to be getting trophies according to this PS3Trophies.org listing (translation here). From the looks of it, the trophies are identical to the 360 achievements of Underworld.

Back in November ’08, Sony made trophy support for PS3 games mandatory effective January 2009, which explains why the later-released Japanese version of Underworld has a little something extra. There’s still no official word from Eidos on this though. Who knows, a trophy patch may be on the way for US and EU Underworld. Fingers are crossed.
