Nice!  ;D

Picked my copy up yesterday, but probably won't get to the SP for a while. If the MP's worth a spin, hopefully it'll make its way onto a game night list!

Finished the game to 96%, just got half a dozen challenges to complete for the 100%. Best game I have played in a long time, just didn't want to put the controller down :)

100%, everything else about the game was excellent, but that mopping up exercise at the end on those challenges was a pain in the proverbial!

Ah well, on to the multiplayer.

I assume there's going to be some single player DLC at some point?

I'd expect so, big selling game like this is gonna have to have some single player DLC at some point.

UK chart: Tomb Raider biggest launch of the year so far
Doubles sales of Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Tomb Raider is the UK's biggest launch of the year so far.

The reboot is in top spot, and, according to UK sales company Chart-Track, "comfortably" outsold 2013's previous best, Sega's Aliens: Colonial Marines, by more than double the week one sell-through.

In fact, this new Tomb Raider set a new record for the franchise in the UK. The previous best was Crystal Dynamics' first game in the series, Tomb Raider: Legend, which in 2006 sold around half what the new Tomb Raider sold.

It should be noted though, that Tomb Raider (2013) is the first in the series to launch as an "event title", that is, on Tuesday 5th March, and so had six days of sales to count towards its launch total. But, countering this, PC download sales are not included in Chart-Track's data, so sales from Steam, for example, aren't counted.

More records: the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Tomb Raider set new week one records as the fastest-selling individual formats of any Tomb Raider release so far. The previous record was held by Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, which released on PS2 in 2003.

EA's SimCity enters the chart in second place. Again, it should be noted that PC sales through EA's digital platform Origin are not counted by Chart-Track.

Elsewhere, Namco Bandai's Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is a new entry at three, and EA The Sims 3: University Life, the ninth (!) expansion pack for The Sims 3, is new at four.

FIFA 13 is fifth and last week's number one, EA's Crysis 3, is down to sixth.

I haven't had much time to play between work and traveling, but the few hours I did put into it I really enjoyed.  I plan on finishing it, but I'm not in a rush.  I was enjoying it so much I know I'll be a bit sad when I reach the end.  With Gears coming out tomorrow, I know it will be a little while before I get back to it.

Tomb Raider Single-Player DLC? There's "No Plans" Says Crystal Dynamics

Finished Tomb Raider's single-player? Looking forward to sinking your teeth into more? Well, it looks like you can forget it, as Crystal Dynamics apparently has "no plans" for single-player DLC. Any add-ons released for the game will apparently support multiplayer, like the recently released Caves & Cliffs Multiplayer Map Pack.

"There are currently no plans in place for any Single Player expansions," said Tomb Raider's Global Brand Director, Karl Stewart in a Reddit. "All of our DLC is based around the Multiplayer experience for now."

It was hoped that Tomb Raider would add single-player DLC in the form of extra tombs or narrative, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Even Lara's classic outfit won't be added as DLC, despite numerous fan requests.

"We did try to have a lot of nods to the classics in this reboot," Creative Director Noah Hughes stated. "And 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."

Pah!
