Crystal Dynamics consider Tomb Raider multiplayer

Future possibility mooted

Tomb Raider: Legend didn't have a multiplayer mode, neither does upcoming release Tomb Raider: Underworld, but that doesn't mean Eidos and developer Crystal Dynamics haven't been thinking about it.

Speaking to this site in a new interview, creative director Eric Lindstrom admits that a multiplayer mode could be added in the future.

"We thought about it in Legend, we thought about it even harder for Underworld. Ultimately, we decided not to do it, not only because Lara is a solo operator - especially in this game - but we really wanted to focus in on a certain type of experience," Lindstrom explained.

"And that experience was all about adventure. It isn't out of the question, however, we consider this every time, and next time could be the one!"

A demo of Underworld is now available on Xbox Live.
