As originally reported yesterday, Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming Tomb Raider reboot will be bolstered by an online multiplayer component. The mode – which was confirmed by, er, Official Xbox Magazine – is in development at Eidos Montreal, the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

“Inspired by the overwhelmingly positive response to co-op play in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, we’ll have many more details about Tomb Raider’s multiplayer offering come CES in early January,” the developer teased.
