Co-op's the name of the game in the new Lara Croft 


Crystal Dynamics was kind enough to show off a bit of Lara Croft to VG247 today, and it looks like a neat arcade game you and a pal can play together and have a bit of fun.

During the co-op in the game, there will be times when Lara is going to have to rely on Totec and vise versa.

For example, Totec can throw spears into walls so Lara can climb, he can let her jump onto his shield so she can leap off onto a previously out of reach ledge, and he is good at helping her figure out two-person puzzles.

Totec also has to rely on Lara,  with one example being him needing to get across a large chasm. In order to do so, Lara will have to get over there first, and have him blindly leap in her direction so that she can catch him and pull him up with her grappling hook.

If you want to be a jerk about it, and are playing as Lara, you can just stand by and watch your pal fall. We would, and laugh about it - at least once or twice.

The game really looks vast for an arcade style game, as it uses the same engine used in Underworld - therefore, you'll see tress and branches sway in the breeze, and all other sorts of cool environmental graphics with no loads times.

Game's slated for late summer on PC, PSN and XBL.

We have some screens of it below. Enjoy.
