. A product listing on the UK retailer GAME
listed multiplayer as a key feature in the new Tomb Raider

Assuming GAME's info was accurate, a multiplayer mode would certainly be new territory for the Tomb Raider series. We just hope there isn't a "Lara vs. Exotic Animals" mode. The animals wouldn't stand a chance.Update
