On top of what Mike has posted (Thank you, by the way), they've also launched a miniature 'sub-site' for lack of a better word on www.tombraider.com under the 'Games' section. Then click on the big Underworld banner.

Nothing new is on it yet that we don't already know about, but it's worth checking up on it once in a while!
