Tomb Raider Multiplayer Details Unearthed
According to the latest issue of OXM (via the Tomb Raider forums), the multiplayer portion of the game will feature a few different modes, the first of which is a typical Team Deathmatch game type, which pits Lara’s companions against a group of dangerous natives.
The second, dubbed “Rescue”, has one team of “survivors” working together to pick up and deliver med-packs throughout the map, while the other team of “scavengers” try to kill the opposition. There isn’t a whole lot known about the third mode, called “Cry for Help”, aside from the fact that it will focus on making discoveries and collecting things.
There will be a wide range of characters for players to choose from—interestingly enough, Lara is not one of them. Additionally, the multiplayer will feature plenty of customization options as well as a leveling system.
Tomb Raider’s multiplayer is being developed by Eidos Montreal, the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
