Lara Croft of Tomb Raider
If you had any speculations about Tomb Raider possibly having multiplayer options, you can push those suspicions aside. It's true. Krystal Dynamics Global Director Karl Stewart has announced via Twitter that Tomb Raider will definitely have multiplayer options. The multiplayer options will be broken down into three modes: (1) Predictable, where characters are pitted against scavengers in fight matches in small maps throughout the game. (2) Rescue, where survivors bring medpacks to certain designated points within a required time frame and (3) Cry for Help, where there is a strong emphasis on discovery and collection.

To bring more challenges to the game, the multiplayer option will have a large array of characters, and diverse weaponry. To fight against enemies, weapons will include a primary firearm or bow, a sidearm, a grenade-like projectile, and a climbing apparatus ax to assist with characters traversing the sometimes mountainous terrain.
