Confirmed: Tomb Raider Will Include Multiplayer, Being Developed by Eidos Montreal

December 28, 2012Written by Jason Dunning

Just yesterday, we let you know that UK retailer GAME listed a multiplayer component for the upcoming Tomb Raider in their product listing. It was quickly removed, but the damage had been done and the rumor was out there.

Today, thanks to OXM, we now know that multiplayer is definitely happening. While OXM doesn’t tell us too much about it, the game’s official tumblr page made a post today, telling us that the multiplayer is being developed by Eidos Montreal and that they’ve “been working tirelessly to introduce multiplayer to the world of Tomb Raider.”

The blog post also went on to state that the idea to include multiplayer within Tomb Raider was actually “inspired by the overwhelmingly positive response to co-op play in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.” We’ll be given more information when CES begins on January 8th, so stay tuned.

Now that this is confirmed, what do you think of multiplayer in a Tomb Raider game? Is it something you’ll check out? Let us know in the comments below.
