Well, of course. Is any game even allowed to launch without multiplayer these days?
The Tomb Raider reboot is one of the most anticipated games of 2013 and at first, it appeared to be a single-player-only adventure, as past franchise installments have been.
But hey, if God of War: Ascension is going to have multiplayer, why not Lara Croft's prequel? According to All Games Beta , UK retailer GAME has listed multiplayer as one of the key features for Tomb Raider . The description is brief but quite clear, as players will be able to sample "a variety of multiplayer modes as Lara's Shipmates or Yamatai's Scavengers." It might end up being something like the Uncharted multiplayer, what with its third-person view and emphasis on action/adventure (and not purely action).
Square Enix has teased everyone by saying they're going to announce something that will "change the way you play Tomb Raider forever." Well, considering that the series has never had multiplayer, maybe we've discovered the secret early.
