Tomb Raider has never had a multiplayer mode, but Crystal Dynamics' reboot of the series is getting one that's been developed by the same studio that brought us Deus Ex: Human Revolution and is working on Thief 4-Eidos Montreal. One of the multiplayer models will be Team Deathmatch. You play either as a team of Lara's surviving allies or as a member of the hostile natives called Scavengers. The matches are in a best-of-three format and players alternate between the teams between rounds.
Beside human enemies, players will have to survive against environmental traps, like levers that shoot spikes out of walls, or destructible environments, such as bridges. The multiplayer mode will feature the bow as a weapon, much like the one Lara uses in the single-player. Another multiplayer game mode is called Rescue, where the survivors collect medical kits and deliver them to various places on the map while Scavengers try to kill as many of them possible. One of the maps in this game mode is called Wind Chasm and is described as tropical with traps, vantage points and junk. A third game mode is called Cry for Help, where the emphasis is on discovering and collecting items as opposed to straight out killing each other. Not much information about this game mode has been revealed yet.
