Through the looking glass

Lara Croft’s desperate pursuit for survival may take a trip through Ethernet cables and routers, as UK retailer GAME appears to have leaked a top-secret multiplayer mode for Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The information – which has been hastily yanked – explained that you will be able to "play a variety of multiplayer modes as Lara's Shipmates or Yamatai's Scavengers”. Oh really?

Square Enix has been teasing a “secret announcement” for a while now, promising that it would “change the way you play Tomb Raider forever”. Seeing as the series has never boasted an online component before, that would certainly fit the bill. Let’s just hope that this amounts to more than a bog-standard deathmatch mode.
