Rumor: Tomb Raider Reboot To Feature Multiplayer [Update: Confirmed]

[Update]:​ OXM has just revealed that its next cover story will shed light on Tomb Raider's previously rumored multiplayer, including "the new modes and info on who you'll be playing as." 

Here's a look at the cover.

[Original Story]: Tomb Raider looks to be shaping up into one heck of an amazing reboot for Lara Croft, but if a listing from UK retailer GAME is to be believed, there may be a minor cause for concern if you're adverse to the idea of tacked-on multiplayer.

According to the listing (spotted by All Games Beta), multiplayer will be a key feature of Lara's upcoming adventure, allowing you to "play a variety of multiplayer modes as Lara's Shipmates or Yamatai's Scavengers." Naturally, GAME has since removed the description.

It's worth noting that not too long ago, Square Enix teased that a "special secret announcement" would be coming, which would apparently "change the way you play Tomb Raider forever." I'd say a fully-featured multiplayer mode would do just that.

Are you excited at the possibility of the inclusion of multiplayer, or are you holding out hope that Crystal Dynamics' reboot is strictly a single-player-only experience? Let us know in the comments below.
