The lights are on
Update: An Official Xbox Magazine story confirms that the new Tomb Raider will have multiplayer.
Official Xbox Magazine Just tweeted that the February issue of its magazine will include a detailed story of the game's rumored multiplayer mode. We can't wait to get more details
Original Story: If a recent listing on UK retailer Game can be trusted, it looks like the new Tomb Raider game will include multiplayer.
Game recently listed Tomb Raider on it's online site with the following produce description:
"Play a variety of multiplayer modes as Lara's Shipmates or Yamatai's Scavengers."
That description has recently been removed, but does that mean it's not a feature in the game, or does it mean that it's a feature of the game that hasn't been announced?
What would you think of a multiplayer mode for Tomb Raider? It would certainly be new territory for the series, but does it fit the series style? Would it be like when 2K added multiplayer to BioShock? We'll have to wait and see what Square announces before the game releases in March.

Way to dilute the quality with nonsensical tack-ons...
Too bad im not gonna get it.
Some games just shouldn't have multiplayer.
Could be good, but single-player should be a first priority.
The game would have been fine without it. Really looking forward to it.
Focus on singleplayer, leave multiplayer to the wastes.
I can't see how MP could fit in with Tomb Raider, given its controls...but then again, this is supposed to be a reboot, so I'm guessing they revamped everything from controls to combat. Just, please...no cover shooting. It works in Uncharted, but for a TR game, that would be just...weird :P.
Meh, I suppose if ME3 could do it...
well. that was unexpected.
......It's like making a single player only game is gonna kill someone...
well at least it didn't happen with Bioshock Infinite.
I don't know whether to scream or cry. I've loved Tomb Raider since the beginning, bought every game, and not once have I thought 'You know what this game needs? Multiplayer!'
Ugh, I really hate how they shove multiplayer into everything nowadays. Leave mp to call of duty and halo. Don't these companies realize that after a month, no one is going to be playing mp in these games? Why can't we just have a solid single player game like the old days?! And of course there will be achievements for it, and will keep me from completing the game because of it. ARGH!!!!
I dearly hope this isn't why the title was delayed.
Oi, and now its happening. Well all we can do is hope they do as well with it as Mass Effect 3 did.
I'm not surprised. I wonder how multiplayer will be implemented though? Hopefully not just deathmatch style games.
I am so excited for this game!
not interested. havent played multiplayer in any games they add it too that start single player. me3 didnt play it. dead space 2 multi didnt play it. uncharted multiplayer, didnt play it
Well could be like Uncharted or Max Payne 3 Multiplayer which where both pretty freaking awesome. (Ironically funny due to Uncharted being influenced by Tomb Raider)
I could see it being quite fun, especially in how great the animation is looking in the game along with the great acrobatics and vertical/3Dimensional fighting in Tomb Raider.
I'm incredibly sick of people adding multiplayer into games that just simply don't need it. This game is about isolation and learning how to survive by yourself. Let's just hope this doesn't ruin the game...
I am in for sp, not interested in mp, especially this game.
