Tomb Raider 1939 Multiplayer Map Pack now available

Two new maps for Tomb Raider's multiplayer modes released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

by

The 1939 Multiplayer Map Pack for Tomb Raider is now available to buy, Square Enix has announced.

The pack adds two maps to Tomb Raider's multiplayer modes, titled Dogfight and Forest Meadow. The former is a closed-off bunker used for experimentation in World War II, and the latter is a more open space that promotes long-range encounters.

The pack is available on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The price of the Xbox 360 version is 320 Microsoft Points. There's no pricing information yet for the PS3 and PC versions.

Tomb Raider's last chunk of downloadable content, the Xbox 360 timed-exclusive Caves and Cliffs, featured three multiplayer maps for 400 Microsoft Points. Square Enix also announced that Caves and Cliffs is now available on PlayStation 3 and PC, but did not provide pricing details.

Tomb Raider was released at the start of March to a positive 8.5 score in its GameSpot review. Square Enix recently announced that Tomb Raider didn't hit its sales target, despite shifting 3.4 million copies in its first month on sale.

The third DLC for Tomb Raider, the Shipwrecked Multiplayer Map Pack, will be released in May. Square Enix has confirmed that there will be no single-player DLC..

Map packs - The most pointless DLC ever. Nobody else ever buys them so you're stuck playing on your own. Enjoy your useless maps.

So named because only 1939 people will buy it.

Crystal Dynamics had no point what so ever to add multiplayer in Tomb Raider (2013), but I guess they developed it to make it similar to Uncharted, but no video gamer has any interest in play it which is a forgettable feature.

The game has been out for less than a month and they are trying to shove their dlc up your ass already.

I think I played three games online.


I absolutely loved the single player game. They're seriously wasting their time and money on multiplayer DLC. I'd buy pretty much anything that adds content to the single player component, but this doesn't get a second glance from me.

Why would  you even make Multiplayer for Tomb Raider? Sounds like a dumb idea to me... Single-Player DLC should be the only DLC available for a game like this.. Sick of seeing games trying to be something they are not, and Multiplayer on a TR is one of those things....

Tomb Raider is a great reboot and the campaign certainly seemed to 'borrow' slightly from uncharted its just a shame that the multiplayer didnt borrow anything because it is pretty weak as far as multiplayers are concerned it is one of the worst i have played, very far from uncharted's excellant multiplayer.

Who cares about TR multiplayer anyway. I wouldn't mind story DLC though.

How about some damn more DLC tombs? "Lost Adventurer" was hardly anything to sneeze at.

Not sure how much I'll care about multiplayer, still having a blast with the single player campaign.  That said, I could use some Lara bikini skins.  Needs more costume DLC!

Great game, I actually miss playing it, since I finished it. I wish there was a really real reason to pick it up again.....

Here's the deal, if the multiplayer dlc can get my exp to level 60 in 2 hours then I'll consider it otherwise I'm off to play metal gear rising, thanks for the amazing Singleplayer campaign though.

Hey Square Enix, I'd be quite happy to buy some single player DLC, but I'm never buying any multiplayer DLC.  Do you want my money or not?

How cool, more stuff nobody wants to buy.  Likely a case of the DLC already made prior to release and now they have to push it out.

I want to give you my money, Square Enix, but for more SP dlc, not some crappy MP. Why are you making it impossible for me to give you my money, don't you like money Square Enix?

Tomb Raider has multiplayer? Oh yeah I chose to ignore it so it didn't tarnish the great game the single player is......

I think people are forgetting single player DLC takes more time to release. Throwing a couple maps together for multiplayer on the other hand.... month after release. makes you wonder doesn't it....

@jorge69696 Yea that's what DLC is now, comes out right around the same time as the game. I miss expansion packs man,. enough of this DLC bullshit, where are the fucking awesome expansions like The Shivering Isles or Asian Dynasties or some awesome content like that. I remember buying many great expansion packs and they were always so unique and rewarding, like The Secret Weapons of WWII expansion for Battlefield 1942, that was better than the game itself ffs. I can never get excited for any additional content these days, its all map packs or fucking skins for guns

@jameson425 because devs think it will stop people from trading it in so quick losing the devs the profit from pre owned sales, which is fine... as long as the online modes are actually any good

@chibi-acer An original 1996 Lara Croft costume would be great, like Legend and Underworld included.

@pozium I find it reasonably fun. I've never really gotten into other AAA titles' MP like COD or Halo, but since the game came with a 14-day trial of the Gold membership, why not? I enjoyed it for the most part. It's quite satisfying to headshot a guy with a bow and arrow, something you won't see in any other multiplayer map.

@doublejuice It did move forward. The single player was modernized and very fun to play. I have tried the multiplayer, and it simply can't compete with other games out there. 


A lot of people out there would snatch up anything that would add content to the single player, and a lot of those people won't think twice about ignoring any multiplayer DLC. We're trying to get the point across that their decision to make only multiplayer DLC (or a multiplayer mode at all) is incredibly stupid.

@guard2182 @jorge69696 I miss the days when a dlc was a continuation of the story. Most multiplayer Dlc's of today just suck (well atleast for me)!

@CodyBronson1 @pip3dream  If you've played Uncharted's multiplayer it is worse in almost every way. I gave it a chance but it's pretty bad. If they had to have multiplayer they should have done something more like Mass Effect 3
