Tomb Raider – Surviving Together Trailer
While Crystal Dynamics is putting the finishing touches to its re-imagining of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider, a dedicated team at Eidos-Montréal has been working on the game’s first versus multiplayer mode.
Multiplayer in Tomb Raider sees the island’s indigenous Scavengers pitted against the crew members from the shipwrecked Endurance. Set in the island’s landscapes, players will use traversal and hunting skills from single player, plus trap-setting, to create fast-paced combat in a selection of versus gaming modes.
In the fourth episode of The Final Hours of Tomb Raider, Zachary Levi travels to Montréal to sit and chat with some of the key team members from Crystal Dynamics about the rationale and direction for this new feature, and introduces viewers to the team from Eidos-Montréal. The team discusses the core focus to ensure they injected attributes from the single player with a multiplayer twist, such as team survival, verticality and the inclusion of environmental threats.
