With the release of Tomb Raider being just three months away, it’s fair to say that today’s announcement of a multiplayer mode in the game has come as something of a surprise. The announcement, which came courtesy of Crystal Dynamics community and communications manager Meagan Marie, appeared on the Eidos forums last week. A full reveal will appear in the February issue of OXM, with more information coming at CES later this month.
A couple of months back we had the chance to talk to Meagan Marie about Tomb Raider, and when asked about the possibility of a co-op or multiplayer mode in the game;
Will there be any multiplayer or co-op at all?
“(Laughs) Crystal Dynamics is entirely focused on single player.”
See how she didn’t say “No, definitely not!”, well it turns out there will be a muiltiplayer mode, developed by sister studio Eidos Montreal, meaning that Crystal Dynamics are solely focused on developing the single player experience. Happy days.
