Crystal Dynamics has revealed information on the Shanty Town Multiplayer Map and three pieces of Concept Artwork from the Tomb Raider video game, that will come out March 5, 2013 on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
A select group of retail partners are offering up the “Shanty Town” multiplayer map as a bonus for grabbing Tomb Raider early.
The island of Yamatai contains a wide variety of environments. Most were formed naturally; many others were built long ago. However the Shanty Town is one of the relatively newer areas, having been cobbled together by the Scavengers using scrap and other debris found on the island. This map features a ramshackle area of steep climbs, multiple ziplines (for quick escapes), and deadly traps to set for foes. The map is available as a free day one download on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC when you pre-order from participating retailers, like Amazon.
To clear up a bit of confusion, this piece of DLC was previously called the “Endurance Pack” in the early planning stages since Crystal Dynamics had not yet announced the multiplayer.
