Tomb Raider fans are looking forward to the latest addition to the franchise called Rise of the Tomb Raider, but they might not be too excited to learn that the new title will not have a multiplayer mode. This news was revealed through the latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine.
Well, for fans who were looking forward to the multiplayer mode, this will be very disappointing. We now know for sure that this isn’t going to happen.
The 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider featured a multiplayer mode that put teams of players against each other in arena maps. These maps had lots of gadgets and traps that were heavily inspired by the game’s main story. Fans seemed to like it. It looks like the decision to cut this part of the game was made to make sure that additional time could be spent on perfecting the single-player experience which is a bigger area of focus for the developers. You can’t really fault them for that.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will release later this year for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Sorry multiplayer fans. At least we know that the single-player experience should be quality as they are giving it extra attention.
