    Tomb Raider Multiplayer Map Week

    How well do you know Tomb Raider’s multiplayer maps? Developed with care by the team at Eidos Montreal, Tomb Raider launches with five unique maps for you to take on with (or against) your friends. We’ll highlight one a day through Friday so you can gain the upper hand this weekend!

    Map #4: Beach

    Near the rocky shore of the island there is a clearing - a dangerous and open place full of twists and turns. It boasts the most verticality of any of the maps and a brutal lightning storm. The lighting will hit the area randomly and spread fires. Also, there are lighting rods scattered throughout the map and once activated they will kill any enemy who wanders by with a bolt from the sky.

    Map Features

    • Sniper’s Paradise: Many places to hide high up and snipe unsuspecting players.
    • Lightning Rods: Unique to this map, the lightning rods are a great way to do some crowd control.
    • Traps: Spike trap, snare trap, exploding barrels, rock falls, propane tanks and turret. This level has tons of ingredients—watch your step. Use your survival instinct to see the rock falls.
    Mode Strategies

    • Survivors would do well by controlling the central tunnel near their spawn point in most modes. Arm the spike traps and be careful, there are four ways into the complex so stay sharp.
    • The Solarii should use the verticality and abundant zip lines to their advantage. Sniping from a distance with a bow will yield good results, but some traps near the entrances and exits of the lower tunnel won’t hurt either.

    Introducing Gathering Courage*

    We’ve gone on record expressing that Tomb Raider was heavily inspired by the courageous actions of very real people who persevered when thrust into extraordinary situations. These people showed us what true courage looks like. To continue the trend of inspiration we’re collecting stories of survival and overcoming obstacles to create a “courage database.”*

    Just like the human experience, courage comes in many forms. Featured Gathering Courage stories include that of Demetrious Johnson, who survived an abusive childhood and funneled his energy into becoming a UFC champion. Shane B of the popular Tumblr blog “Laughing at my Nightmare” weighs in on living his entire life with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Other stories dive into finding one’s voice, moving on after a fire, and courage through grief. Ultimately though, these stories are about accomplishment, perseverance, strength, integrity, leadership, resourcefulness, and sacrifice.*

    Lara’s instincts, emotions, and brave spirit are a direct reflection of stories like these – your stories. We encourage you to submit your own story to our courage database, and to share, reblog, and like those of others. Every action counts towards us reaching our goal of donating $10,000 to Feeding America.

    To be fair, up until now there has been a lot of love for US and Canada Now it's time for EU to get some love It's really nice to see Square / Crystal working to create promotions in all countries.

    Tomb Raider Multiplayer Map Week

    How well do you know Tomb Raider’s multiplayer maps? Developed with care by the team at Eidos Montreal, Tomb Raider launches with five unique maps for you to take on with (or against) your friends. We’ll highlight one a day through Friday so you can gain the upper hand this weekend!

    Map #5: Underground

    When the Japanese surrendered at the end of the Second World War, three of their four nuclear submarines were destroyed by the Allies. A I-403 Submarine, the forth, was never found, hidden in an underground base on the island. The submarine holds another deadly secret: when the base was abandoned the officers initiated a self-destruct sequence on the submarine but, due do a power disruption, the final countdown was never started. During the match in this tight and tense level, the power will be returned to the sub and a doorway will open. The first team to activate the self-destruct will set the match time to 2:00—who will win?

    Map Features

    • Small, intense and tight map layout: Lots of corridors, trouble at every turn.
    • Self-destruct: Team that activates this event will gain XP and credit for any kills it causes.
    • Traps: Snare trap, exploding barrels, shotgun barriers, propane tanks and turret. The biggest danger in this level is the other players due to the layout and quick immersion in the combat.
    • Destructible bridge: The central bridge can be weakened and caused to collapse. When the power on the bridge is on and it is destroyed it will create an electrical field that inflicts damage over time to any player on the bridge—cross at your own risk. Use instinct mode to find the switches.
    Mode Strategies

    • Keep moving: The map has tight corridors and blocked off side paths that are useful to a skilled player. Shoot your way through the barriers and collect as many special ammunition drops as you can.
    • Use the self-destruct: If you’re in the lead, or have a chaotic personality, push that button. It will reset the time to 2:00. This will add or subtract time to the match depending on when it is pushed. In free for all and team death match kills you get from this event count as points—lots of fun in free for all.
    • Destroy the bridge and electrify it.

    Spanish Community Takes Tomb Raider To The Streets

    I’m laughing so hard right now that the IT department is starting to stare. Our community is incredible across the globe, but a few of our Spanish fans deserve extra credit for this pre-launch adventure.

    A handful of our male and female Tomb Raider superfans wanted to support Lara leading to launch, and took to the streets dressed as her last week.*I even spotted a Roth cosplay! Before the night concluded they popped into a GAME and instructed patrons to buy Tomb Raider on launch day.*


    <span>You guys are amazing.
