It's not a game that requires multiplayer but at this rate, the next God of War will be forced to include the feature.

One would expect to find certain job listings for the new Tomb Raider ; it isn't all that surprising to find Crystal Dynamics seeking a technical producer and a senior level designer. But as Joystiq reports (citing job listings found at Gamasutra), the studio is also looking for a "multiplayer producer" and a "senior multiplayer game designer." And there's no mistaking the title in question, as one can find "come and work on the new Tomb Raider" underneath the job listings. Recently, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light boasted co-op gameplay but besides that, this franchise has never boasted any sort of multiplayer option. If you think you're capable of fitting the bill, feel free to apply. For the rest of us, it means we can expect a multiplayer facet in the new TR installment…again, we're not sure if we need it, but perhaps it could be a big bonus.

We're still fairly certain that any Tomb Raider experience will have to rely on a quality single-player experience, though.

Sounds like a desperate attempt of fanbase revival imo. Uncharted completely ripped this series apart which probably explains why we're seeing pointless HD rehashes of TR titles that were released on PS3 & 360 as well as the recent co-op & now, multiplayer options.

As far as i'm concerned, this franchise had it's funeral when Angel of Darkness landed. It's nasty aroma is still evident with the fact that they're still churning it out on a regular basis.

Let it die already & instead of pissing on something that died years ago.

This could possibly be my 1st Tomb Raider game, never played any of the others, but seriously though are they going to put multiplayer in every damn game. I wouldn't be surprised if the new DMC had online multiplayer, my honest opinion some games just don't need that feature at all.

They're probably just doing it to appeal more to the 360 fanbase since that crowd is allot more hardcore when it comes to they're multiplayer, it's like a must have feature for them or they ain't buying it.

Hey c'mon guys, I had buried Lara too, but maybe we can still dig her up and play around with her a bit. (eew)

I have high hopes for this reboot and while I agree multiplayer isn't needed, it sort of IS needed these days for anyone to freakin buy it.

Let's just hope they take their cues from the Uncharted series and maybe stack up about chest high against it.

Yeah, I said chest.

Poor Lara Croft every time I see her is depressing, just Like Britney Spear from her glory 90's era to her actual pos present days.

And I'm not talking about music, her music was always crap.

"Squeenix…Slowly killing your favorite franchises one day at a time"

While it can be said that SE is very much playing a hand in the distruction of this franchise, the damage was done years time after Eidos forced out the creators of the Tomb Raider franchise, and I'm not talking about Toby Gard who have unapologetically taken credit for something he technically didn't create.

Well that's another gaming legend buried, When will our generation leanr that rebooting series does not work, i would have certainly welcomed just another sequel with Lara, But by the sounds of it, its not going to be an adventure game but a thrid person shooter, just like all the rest.

It's going to be along the lines of a female version of uncharted and that my friend isn't a bad thing.

Rebooting a series can work if done right.

Lara Croft has a huge fan base laying dormant waiting for something of true quality to emerge. Tombraider #2 was the best in the series. After that it was downhill. Until recently, Lara Croft was my all time favorite character before Chloe Frazer came along. A hi deft reboot with a top notch quality story and a sexy Lara Croft will always have a spot in my heart and wallet. Imagine if Naughty Dog did the new tombraider. It would be sick. Right now though, theres no female character that can touch Chloe and that nice booty uh…I mean body.

If ND did a TR that would be A-MAZ-ING.
But we're stuck with these guys… Hopefully they will do an awesome job.

I disagree, Uncharted is far more action orintated than Tomb Raider, I see Uncharted as a 3rd person shooter, while I see Tomb Raider as more a puzzle/adventure game.

I wish ND make a Uncharted game with lara croft in it as Nathan female partner…. that will be an interesting chemistry to watch.

Multiplayer?, isn't this an exclusive?
the SP experience is all that madders, that's a huge thing that separates us from the 360 owners. We like our SP and they like there MP, that's why a huge number of 360 owners loves COD and buy the prestige Edition.
All thou PSN is better then Xbox line now, and it's FREE.

I have high hopes for this game I remember the first ones on the PS1, so awesome, I also played one on the Nintendo SP. I hope everything turns out to be awesome for this game, just don't dedicate to much into the MP… Especially TR, this game does not, DOES NOT NEED this feature.
