Yesterday, we heard that next year's highly anticipated Tomb Raider reboot would include online multiplayer .
And although we haven't seen an official press release on the matter, the confirmation can be found at the game's official Facebook page : Multiplayer will be a part of the experience, and Eidos Montreal will be handling that development aspect.
That's significant because Eidos Montreal is the team that brought us Deus Ex: Human Revolution . Now, they're obviously a capable team but don't forget that Deus Ex didn't have a multiplayer component, so maybe this is new territory for the studio in question. However, we kinda like the idea of using another developer to handle the multiplayer, because this means Crystal Dynamics can focus all their efforts on delivering a top-notch campaign. And really, isn't this why we all play Tomb Raider ? Not every gamer on earth only cares about multiplayer, contrary to what some industry bigwigs believe.
Anyway, more info on the Tomb Raider multiplayer will emerge soon, so stay tuned for that.
