Tomb Raider is to receive its first batch of DLC in the shape of a Multiplayer Map Pack.
The map pack will be an Xbox 360 Timed exclusive and will be available to download from Xbox Live on March 19 for 400 Microsoft Points.
It was announced at E3 2012 that all DLC will be timed exclusive to Xbox 360, but it is unknown how long it will be exclusive for.
Details of the map pack:
- Scavenger Caverns: An extensive subterranean network of caves used by the island’s scavengers as an underground prison
- Cliff Shantytown: This scavenger settlement was built high up on the island cliffs. Its many layers hide some of the deadliest traps on the island
- The Burning Village: A raging fire has embraced an abandoned Japanese village, the burning buildings offer multiple ways to escape or engage your enemies
Tomb Raider will contain a “variety of multiplayer modes”, a recent retail listing has revealed.
The Tomb Raider product description on UK retailer GAME’s website originally listed a team-based multiplayer mode in which Lara’s shipmates would be pitted against the island’s scavengers.
The listing, which was spotted by All Games Beta, has since been removed and replaced with information about Tomb Raider’s E3 awards.
It is thought that the multiplayer component relates to a special announcement teased by the development team back in November.
Tomb Raider is a reboot of the classic series, where Lara Croft finds herself shipwrecked on a hostile island in a story that shapes her into the heroine seen in the original games.
Developer Crystal Dynamics confirmed earlier this year that the Tomb Raider reboot is not just a single game, hinting at future titles in the series.
Scribe Rhianna Pratchett is the lead writer on the game, saying she wants to bring a “depth and credibility to Lara”.
The game will also have timed DLC that will take place after the events of the main campaign.
Tomb Raider game play was shown this year at E3 and wow did it look amazing, And guess what…. it is below for your enjoyment.
Here’s a teaser for the official trailer of the reboot of the Lara Croft series. The game has recently been delayed until 2013, however a ton of new details are set to be revealed at E3 this year.
