Microsoft Responds to Rise of the Tomb Raider Multiplayer Concerns
Addressing the potential lack of multiplayer with VideoGamer, a Microsoft spokesperson said Crystal Dynamics is hard at work on Rise of the Tomb Raider ahead of its November launch on Xbox. They then added:
In the coming weeks and months, stay tuned for more info on all things Rise of the Tomb Raider – including how players will be able to extend their single-player campaign and compete with their friends.
Based on their response, it appears as though Rise of the Tomb Raider won’t include a traditional multiplayer mode, but may include some sort of single-player leaderboards/challenges instead.
Rise of the Tomb Raider releases on PlayStation 4 in late 2016, following a PC release in early 2016.
