In this month's issue of Official Xbox Magazine, multiplayer mode details for Crystal Dynamics action-adventure title, "Tomb Raider", have been released. A member of the "Tomb Raider" forum summarized the details that were included in the magazine's reveal. The online component is currently being developed by Eidos Montreal and will feature two multiplayer modes: Team Deathmatch and Rescue.
In Team Deathmatch, players can choose to be apart of Lara Croft's surviving team of allies or play as a group of natives called the scavengers. The winners are determined by best out of three and will let players alternate between sides. The maps will include climbable surfaces, lever-based traps that shoot spikes out of walls, and destructible environments.
During Rescue mode, the survivors are battling to collect med packs and deliver them to rotating destinations. Meanwhile, the scavengers are aiming for a certain kill count to win the match. The survivors will have a bleed-out time which can be cut short with a brutal finisher.
It is still unclear whether or not any other modes will be featured in "Tomb Raider's" multiplayer. A third multiplayer mode called Cry for Help was teased and focuses on "discovery and collection" as apposed to combat. No other information is available at this time.
In addition to the modes, players can choose from a deep roster of characters with different stats and various load outs. A typical load out will be consist of a primary weapon, a sidearm, grenade-style projectiles, and a climbing axe that doubles as a melee weapon.
"Tomb Raider" is scheduled to be released on March 5, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
