Remember that rather exciting “special secret announcement” for Tomb Raider that we picked up on a week or so back?
It’s highly likely to be multiplayer, which was (along with a few other ideas) one of the stronger suggestions in our earlier post on the subject.
The news comes via UK retailer GAME’s website, which apparently stated players could “play a variety of multiplayer modes as Lara’s Shipmates or Yamatai’s Scavengers” on the product page for the game. It’s since been removed.
Multiplayer shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, and rumour has it it’s based on Uncharted 2′s setup. Again, hardly a shock, given the way the single player is resembling Drake’s second outing.
Tomb Raider is out 5th March 2013.
