Multiplayer for "Tomb Raider" was introduced with a bit of controversy as fans of the Lara Croft series questioned why it was even needed for the traditionally single-player franchise. Those fans will likely have more questions as the multiplayer was shown off in the latest "The Final Hours" video released for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC game on Tuesday.
The fourth episode of the "Tomb Raider" development diary shows the shipwrecked survivors fighting against the island's inhabitants in different deathmatch-style modes. Team Deathmatch appears to be the mode primarily featured in the video as players use weapons like Lara's bow, guns and explosives to fight others. There are also traps that players can set such as a lightning rod that will electrocute players as they by.
The other two announced multiplayer modes for "Tomb Raider" includes "Rescue" that sends one team of players on the hunt for med packs while the other side tries to kill them. The third mode is "Cry for Help" which tries to move the exploring and discovery mechanics of the single-player experience into multiplayer.
Also, Zachary Levi of "Chuck" fame is apparently a multiplayer character.
