Will the Next Tomb Raider Have Multiplayer?

1 min read


Multiplayer is definitely the “in thing” in videogames. Many people considering multiplayer as a means of adding longevity to a single player game – with some gamers even refusing to purchase games that don’t have the component.

Me? I think the unnecessary addition of multiplayer to decidedly single player games can sully the whole experience – and I prefer tacked on multiplayer to be omitted, thanks. It seems yet another a beloved single-player game may be getting unnecessary multiplayer, If a job listing by Crystal dynamics is any indication.

Crystal dynamics, the folks in charge of the current Tomb Raider reboot are looking for a lead designer with experience in designing multiplayer. According to the post the candidate should be one who “demonstrates advanced knowledge of current multiplayer design (systems, ability and technical interface).” He should also have the “ability to design multiplayer maps from written map designs” and “to work closely and communicate effectively with artists to implement overall vision of those maps”

While I’d normally shun the mere thought, Naughty Dog have shown how multiplayer in this genre could work with Uncharted 2 – and they’ve done so quite convincingly. Let’s hope Crystal Dynamics have what it takes to return the buxom Ms Croft to her rightful throne. If not, let’s hope they at least give here a stunning pair of breasts.

    Some co-op 2 player puzzles could be awsome. And to have it timed as well could make for some fun.

    Multiplayer on this ? mehh.

    Oh come on. Next thing we’ll have a multiplayer Pac Man.

    Actually, multiplayer Pac Man could be fucking epic. One person is the Pacster, while the other guys play Inky, Winky, Blinky and Clyde. And everybody needs to kill him before he eats all the pills.
    Damn, somebody get some game modders on this. This is gold.

    Cool idea. We could get new Lara’s arch enemy (invent someone and model her after Megan Fox), then have a mud wrestling MP mode.

    I have to agree with Ewie though, Co-op Tomb Raiding could be a blast. And not just for the puzzles. There could be certain co-op moves ala Splinter Cell’s MP that require both participants to advance pass a particular obstacle.
    But MP deathmatch or something would just be bollocks.

          Think Army of Two’s ability to high five and all that, just with two chicks and some hot action
