Tomb Raider (2013) Multiplayer
The Multiplayer is a new feature in the reboot Tomb Raider (2013). Many different multiplayer game modes are available.
Unlike in many other games where Multiplayer is reduced to shooting and hiding, traversal will still play an important role in the Tomb Raider multiplayer, so will placing traps.
Basically in all competitive modes the Endurance's survivors will fight against the scavengers (also known as Solarii . Matches (except in "Free for All") will be "best out of three". Players will alternately play as scavengers or survivors. 
The survivors have to carry a medipack to their camp ("Retrieve and and capture the medical supplies") while the scavengers try to stop them by killing them. The survivors win if they bring back 5 medkits and the scavengers win when they score 20 kills. This mode is 4 on 4, but can also be played with less players. In a private match you can also play it one-on-one.  If a survivor player is mortally wounded in this game mode, he is pinned to a location but can still shoot at targets within range, an enemy can finish him off for good, but he can possible also be rescued by a team mate.
Team Death Match
Players fight in groups of four with one group being the Endurance's survivors and the other representing the scavengers. The first group to get 25 kills, or to get most kills within the given time wins. 
Cry for Help
Free for All
The playable characters will have different abilities. Characters with higher abilities have to be unlocked by reaching higher levels (which is done by earning a certain amount of XP) before they can be used. The characters listed below have been officially confirmed, it is likely that all characters, including Lara become available throughout the gamers multiplayer career.

Weapons and Traps
Loadouts consist of a primary firearm / the bow, a sidearm, grenade-like projectile and the climbing axe.
Besides using weapons the players can set up traps to catch the opposing team unaware. Other traps are provided by the environment and can catch both teams. Bear traps, spikes, ropes and lightning rods have been shown so far.
Five maps will be available at launch and are available in all of the four game modes.
Further maps can be bought as additional DLC. (These are included in the Definitive Edition as released on PS4 and Xbox One.)
- Shanty Town (only usable in Free for All, part of the Shanty Town (Game Pack) DLC.)
- Caves and Cliffs (Caves and Cliffs Multiplayer Map Pack (Game Pack)
- Dogfight and Forest
- Lost Fleet and Himiko's Cradle
Note on Matchmaking
Please note that when you're playing another version than the Definitive Edition, you may run into difficulties when trying to find matches when you have maps installed that other potential players don't have. In this case it is advised to deactivate these extra DLC maps. To do so go to "Options" on the title screen. Choose "Matchmaking". Pick all maps you want to deactivate and switch them to "off".
