No demo - Good or Bad?

No demo version is planned for Tomb Raider, said Karl Stewart of the game's studio, Crystal Dynamics, because doing so would reveal too much of the story before the game's release.
 
"We've weaved such an personal story we don't believe spoiling it by having you wait a week or so to play on, delivers on our promise," he said via Twitter on Wednesday.
 
The good news, however: "There's no Season or Online Pass," Stewart added yesterday, a welcome change and a small surprise given this game will feature multiplayer for the first time in the series' history.
 
Tomb Raider releases March 5 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

If Crystal Dynamics were being more secretive about the game, the lack of a demo would give reason to suspect the game is a disaster.  But plenty of respectable gaming news sources have had hands-on time with it with positive results.

I'm not worried.  I wouldn't have time to play the demo anyway.   ;)



ps.  Great news about no season/online pass.  I no like them.

Conan's reaction at 6:10 was priceless.

Tomb Raider DLC pack Caves and Cliffs is timed Xbox 360 exclusive
Three new maps unveiled, due 19th March

Microsoft done love that there Tomb Raider so much they've exclusivised the game's first map pack, as revealed by the official Tumlbr page. Releasing on 19th March, the Caves and Cliffs DLC introduces three new maps for all four online modes, and will cost 400 MP.

Scavenger Caverns is "an extensive subterranean network of caves used by the island's scavengers as an underground prison", while the vertiginous Cliff Shantytown's "many layers hide some of the deadliest traps on the island". The Burning Village, finally, is indeed a burning village. Its buildings "offer multiple ways to escape or engage your enemies".

Any takers? And what do you think of the multiplayer in general? Crystal Dynamics' Noah Hughes has said the developer is "anxious" to "explore" this aspect of the reboot further in future Tomb Raider games, which presumably chimes with publisher Square Enix's digital revenue plans. Nothing makes for easy, high-earning DLC quite like a multiplayer mode, after all.
