This is a discussion on Tomb Raider Multiplayer Announced within the PlayStation & Trophy News forum, part of the PS3Trophies.com Headquarters; And once again MP is being added to a game that doesn't need it ....
Well with single player ending and all the Trophies being collected people will want more and they want people people to play the game as much as possible and show good reviews. I just hope they wont make multiplayer with glitches and everything then abandon the game and move on to the next game.
One of the oddest choices for MP in some time but it is of course a staple for online passes to be sold on.
Could be fantastic of course, i'd rather they had made a great MP mode than a lazy tack on for money.
Square Enix (as of yet) don't do online passes, so that wouldn't be the reason. Not to say that multiplayer in general doesn't generate revenue from skins, maps, etc; being charged on, but I don't think the purpose is online passes. I could be wrong, and Lara Croft and her mainstream appeal could be SE's test into the online pass foray, but as of now - there isn't plans to do it yet.
Everybody is assuming that this is going to competitive multiplayer, when it is possible it could be co-op (whether akin to Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, modes like Far Cry 3, or something entirely original). Crystal Dynamics has pulled off a stellar co-op experience before, so I wouldn't be too put off if that were the case. A competitive multiplayer mode is a possibility, but I wouldn't assume it's some forgone conclusion.
The issue should come sometime this week, so hopefully there will be details soon about what to expect.
