‘Tomb Raider’ Achievements & Trophy List; Online Multiplayer Required

Published 1 year ago by

Tomb Raider (2013) Multiplayer Achievements

One of the most-anticipated titles of 2013, Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider reboot promises a more grounded and emotional look at the video game starlet, Lara Croft. Last year, the developer teased that a player’s relationship with the iconic character would evolve throughout the latest Tomb Raider entry – giving gamers hope that the prequel title would, above all else, feature a thrilling and evocative storyline.

Now, with the release of a complete list of in-game achievements and trophies, we’re also finding out that Crystal Dynamics intends to place a heavy emphasis on multiplayer - possibly as an escape from that “mature” and “emotionally challenging” single player story.

Tomb Raider multiplayer was unveiled just before the new year – to a mostly mixed response from gamers. While some players appreciate the added replay value, others have touted the industry’s flagship anti-multiplayer argument – i.e. that development dollars and resources should have been spent on as much single player content as possible.

Tomb Raider Multiplayer Combat

However, the complete Tomb Raider achievement and trophy lists makes it very clear that Crystal Dynamics intends to make multiplayer a major element of their game package (and, likely, post-release add-ons). Especially since the list of single player challenges is easily some of the most generic set of achievements in recent memory – relying heavily on collectibles, purchased upgrades (skills and mods), as well as weapon-specific kills.

Tomb Raider has already drawn numerous comparisons to Naughty Dog’s Sony exclusive Uncharted franchise – no surprise considering Nathan Drake was, at first, considered by many gamers to be a Lara Croft knockoff. Still, Uncharted multiplayer definitely seems like a fitting blueprint for what fans can expect from Crystal Dynamics in the online arena. Villages and jungled arenas along with vertical traversal and quick-moving characters could make for a unique multiplayer offering that will appeal (for a time) to certain gamers. Still, when Naughty Dog planned out their in-game trophy lists, multiplayer challenges were mostly an afterthought and it’s surprising that Crystal Dynamics has placed such a heavy emphasis on the mode for Tomb Raider – most notably the ” True Commitment” achievement which challenges players to reach level 60 (likely the maximum rank) in multiplayer.

Tomb Raider Multiplayer Characters

While players may have previously complained about BioWare’s co-operative horde mode in Mass Effect 3, the majority of the respective in-game challenges could still be acquired in single player – which took a bit of heat off of the newly-created multiplayer experience. The sheer amount of multiplayer-only achievements in Tomb Raider casts a bright spotlight on an entirely untested multiplayer offering – meaning that the final product had better deliver. Otherwise, the game’s biggest fans (the ones who are most likely to aim for “True Commitment”) might ultimately be put-off in their quest to level 60.

It’s a lesson that rival publisher EA learned the hard way with Dead Space 2 – and one reason why the Dead Space 3 achievement list (not to mention the game itself) does not feature competitive multiplayer.

  1. Hmmm, not a great sign…

  2. I don’t play MP so let’s hope the SP campaign is up to par.

  3. female uncharted much

  4. Definitely giving multiplayer a shot. :)

  5. i was going to buy this today but glad i looked at trophy list first.ill pass.too many online trophys and level 60 type trophys put me off as i hate grinding for platinums,and btw there were no mp trophys for dead space 2

    • You should not pass on this game no matter what…Trophies aside, this is one of the best games ive played in awhile..Id even go as far as saying its better than Uncharted in a way that makes the Uncharted series have to step up its game for the next one.Everything from story to combat and the upgrading up weapons & skills in the single player is very fun and addictive. There is a very creative system as you get through the story where you gain new items that allow to get too many areas you couldn’t earlier and for once looking for items and treasure in this game feels normal and fun enough to want to do it, as every treasure adds to the main story and helps you understand whats going on and so on.Trust me, once you get it you wont regret it….I was actually debating on saving that money for Bioshock Infinite, but after reading reviews, I caved and after a few hours of playing the game, I couldn’t put the controller down and just wanted to keep playing it.It actually feels good to play as Lara and her movement seems as fluent as Joel in the last of us but lighter and aiming with the bow is awesome…I also dont understand how you guys are so addicted to trophies that you wont play a game that has trophies you like, thats kind o f stupid as you might miss out on one of the best games of 2013 so far….Get this game now or Rent it…

  6. not to mention all the stupid collectibles etc
    this game looks awful for trophy hunters.
    thanks so much for stopping me getting this aweful game

  8. Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a great article… but what can
