Finished Tomb Raider? Then you'll be wanting to get stuck into its multiplayer, right? Well then you're in luck, as there'll be more maps coming to the game with the 'Cliffs & Caverns Multiplayer Map Pack' DLC, which is a timed exclusive on Xbox 360.

Bundling three new multiplayer maps based upon locations from the single-player story, the map pack adds the Cliff Shantytown, Scavenger Caverns and The Burning Village to the selection of maps available for the online portion of the game

  • Scavenger Caverns - An extensive subterranean network of caves used by the island’s scavengers as an underground prison
  • Cliff Shantytown - This scavenger settlement was built high up on the island cliffs. Its many layers hide some of the deadliest traps on the island
  • The Burning Village - A raging fire has embraced an abandoned Japanese village, the burning buildings offer multiple ways to escape or engage your enemies

What do you lot think of Tomb Raider's multiplayer? You'll be able to grab the Cliffs & Caverns Multiplayer Map Pack for Tomb Raider on March 19th for 400 Microsoft Points should you fancy it.

"Oh wow, this is great!"

Said no one ever.

It's bad enough that they shoehorned crappy multiplayer into ANOTHER game that did not need it, now they release DLC for it?

Ah, are changing for the worse.

Oh dear!! My worst nightmares have come true. The adding of maps for multiplayer which no one wants in the game & only play for the achievements. Why do they do this to us.

Please don't have achievements attached to this DLC.

While Sony gets exclusive single player content that Xbox never sees. Microsoft surely only ever thinks about paying for timed exclusives that will eventually land on the PS3

Sony seems to be the smart one here

X360 exclusive multiplayer DLC. I already see lines of people trading in their PS3 for Xbox just so they can experience this magnificent offer. If Microsoft manages this for a few more games like Bioshock Infinite and Metro:Last Light, I hear that Sony might scrap PS4 altogether and start selling popcorn machines.

You guys do realize that MS didn't know the multiplayer was bad until long after they signed this deal, right? It could have been a great bullet point and well worth the money.

Gamers are just entitled.

I agree with you up until that last bit. Microsoft had no idea what they would use for the exclusive DLC packs. But taking a stab at everyone for hating something that shouldn't be in the game is ridiculous.

Tomb raider is one of the best games i've played in a long, long time. However, its multiplayer is sh%t. I wouldn't d/load these new maps if they were free, let alone pay 400 MS points for them.

I don't believe the multiplayer is bad in terms of broken or anything of the like, it to me just feels as others have said, shoehorned in. Seeing as it's a single-player franchise to begin with, multiplayer add-ons for it should be free like Mass Effect 3 was and SP would be paid.

LMFAO, called this back on January 10th

"The phrase "The game will have 5 maps AT LAUNCH" seems to insinuate that DLC map packs will be coming."

Anyway, glad this game came out and reminded me I hadn't played Uncharted 3 yet. Pretty good so far. >:]

The only reason they added a MP is so they could sell lame, overpriced map pack DLC.

That's the issue with games like these, competitive multiplayer tends to die rather early (within the first six months to [rarely] a year.) Now if it was Tomb Raider co-op? I bet it could have had at least a decent following like ME3's.

@1 This is the main reason I'm considering.... getting a PS4 over the new Xbox next gen, all this timed exclusive stuff means nothing to me, the only two games that I have cared about with it, were GTA IV and Skyrim.

And I'm more than willing to wait the extra month or so that these exclusives are, when I can get better IPs on the other side.

But I'm not saying anything for certain, maybe Microsoft will announce some good new IPs for next gen at E3, since the only exclusive IP I actually would miss is Gears of War, and then I'm not too fussed.

I wad thinking about getting the game. But was put off by MP. Now the DLC is more of what I don't want to bother with for achievements. They should have made more story based DLC.

If I do get another console. It's gonna be a PS. Better choice of RPG'S for me, as that's what I'm into these days, or at least a decent SP game.

@29 Blasphemy!!!! Hahahaa! Just kidding, do what you will. I've been an Xbox supporter since day 1 of the original console so I'm gonna soldier on with Microsoft regardless.

Sony may have more exclusives, and I have tried most of them, but nothing really clicked with me for any of their big titles. Really pretty games but they all felt kinda soulless and empty. And don't even get me started on their controller....

Haven't tried the Multiplayer yet as I was only able to rent the game and enjoying the SP Campaign a lot so far. Especially with it being my first tomb raider game. With that said I usually don't get games like this for MP. Personally I think they overplay the MP aspects too much in games these days. Especially where it should just be a SP Campaign experience. One it takes away from the SP experience, and two most companies would rather dish out MP add-ons then SP add-ons. Not gonna name any names *cough* ubisoft's assassin's creed series *cough*

With that said I'm gonna still buy the Tomb Raider game next month but it won't be because of the MP. It will be cause I played the game 9 hrs straight last night with Lara and really enjoyed the game so far.

The multiplayer isn't bad, you need to give it time and get used to it. I'm having a blast playing it, ranked 43rd in the world at the moment going for the top 10. It's all about the bow and arrow baby! I'm excited for these maps, really enjoying this games multiplayer! :D

I played Underworld then after got Beneath the Ashes and Lara's Shadow. Both were awesome story expansions to the overall story(highly recommend to 360 owners). I can see the point that they should have stuck to the story related DLC as the game isn't a shooter or even a RPG like Mass Effect which benefit from more MP maps.

makes no sense to have mp dlc for this game since every review i have read on the game really has nothing good to say about the mp. i guess they seem to think by adding more mp they may win over a couple people into actually wanting to play it. rather than just playing it for the achievements.

Clearly this type of DLC IS what people want, or they wouldn't even bother. The minority doesn't like it, and thinks nobody cares, but game developers have been shown otherwise thanks to players mindlessly shelling out tons of money for a couple new maps in almost every game ever that has multiplayer. Doesn't matter if the core fanbase doesn't care, companies see $$$ with content like this.

Also, @24 the reason ME3 got free multiplayer DLC was because of the micro transaction MS point gear packs. I personally know 3 people that spent 500+ dollars over the last year buying packs. Technically that was "free" but someone fronted the bill.

You know what they should of done instead of competitive multiplayer if they were going to do any kind of mulitplayer at all? A Mercenaries mode. That would of been perfect. I dont think a game has excited me as much since the first time I ever played Resident Evil 4 on the Gamecube. Having extra modes and unlockables after beating the campaign would of been amazing. Instead we get Multiplayer. Multiplayer only works if people are willing to play it... and no one wants to play this.

@44 - It's what they think (or hope) people want. The relative failure of Dead Space, despite EA trying both PVP and co-op, shows it's not necessarily the case. MP here is clearly to try and appeal to Johnny Call of Battlefield, not the long-time Tomb Raider fans. That and flogging map packs as DLC...

Yet another reason not to play this,considered myself the biggest tomb raider fan in the world,not anymore,fuck multiplayer,fuck co-op,fuck the money hungry demons that now make games and to tell you the truth fuck gaming,its getting beyond boring,what happened to telling a good story?,wouldnt want to do that if there might be a way to scrape more money out of it,even though by shoehorning multiplayer in where its not needed or wanted they are probably turning folk away and therefore not making as much as they would have if it was the single player game we all wanted.Thank god for metro and bioshock sticking to their guns or I would give up and just buy good books instead.(probably will anyway)
