No Single-Player DLC in the Works for Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics is planning to support Tomb Raider with plenty of downloadable content, but none of it will be story-based.
The Tomb Raider reboot came complete with a new multiplayer mode, for which Crystal Dynamics has already released some additional content. With the return of such a major franchise, and the fairly promising critical and commercial success Tomb Raider has received early on, the devs are also working on even more DLC for the game. Unfortunately, none of it will be single-player content.
In a recent Reddit AMA spotted by Videogamer, Tomb Raider's global brand director Karl Stewart and creative director Noah Hughes broke the bad news to the questioners. "There are currently no plans in place for any Single Player expansions," Stewart said. "All of our DLC is based around the Multiplayer experience for now."
The devs aren't planning any content at all for the single-player portion, including the oft-requested classic costume. "We did try to have a lot of nods to the classics in this reboot," said Hughes. "Even her outfit itself is intended to evoke her classic outfit in a way, but is more practical for her situation. This was just an example of trying to play that balance between fresh and familiar."
It's a shame there are no plans for more tombs to raid, but that doesn't really diminish the core game as it stands right now. Besides, with so many games coming out in March (and the rest of the year), we probably wouldn't even have time to enjoy the DLC.
