With the reboot of Tomb Raider on the horizon, Crystal Dynamics have confirmed the existance of a multiplayer mode.
If you’re concerned that this will draw significant development away from the campaign, don’t be! Tomb Raider’s multiplayer is being developed by Eidos Montreal, the developers of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Meagan Marie, community manager at Crystal Dynamics confirmed that the mode exists, but asks us to wait until the launch of January’s issue of OXM.
“Very exciting news to (finally) confirm to you guys! Lara’s on the February cover of OXM, paired with a big announcement. Tomb Raider will include a multiplayer offering thanks to the hard work of our sister-studio, the hugely talented Eidos Montreal. The team at Eidos Montreal has been working away at the multiplayer while we focused everything on the single-player offering.”
“I know you all will have dozens and dozens of questions – hang in there. OXM has the exclusive details for now. We’ll have lots of information coming out of CES in early January. I can’t answer much (anything) until then.”
With a mere couple of months until release and an upcoming spread in OXM, expect to hear more from Tomb Raider, launching March 5th for PlayStation 3, Xbox360 and PC.
