No plans for single-player Tomb Raider DLC

Crystal Dynamics is all about the multiplayer

Those hoping for additional secret tomb challenges or other single-player content in Tomb Raider are due a disappointment. According to global brand director Karl Stewart, Crystal Dynamics will only be expanding multiplayer content in the foreseeable future. 

“There are currently no plans in place for any Single Player expansions,” said Stewart in a Reddit AMA. “All of our DLC is based around the Multiplayer experience for now.”

The news has disappointed fans, and not without reason. While I found the multiplayer portion of Tomb Raider a decent little distraction, not many were enchanted by it, and it’s definitely not of the same quality as the single-player mode. Feels like one is casting pearls before swine, adding to an inferior mode while the reason most people bought the game goes ignored. 

Oh well … that’s marketing departments for you.
