Next Year's Tomb Raider Includes Multiplayer

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.
