Crystal Dynamics confirms no Tomb Raider demo, no Online or Season Pass

Demo would spoil the story.

There won't be a Tomb Raider demo, Crystal Dynamics has confirmed.

Nor will there be an Online or Season Pass.

Tomb Raider global brand director Karl Stewart took to Twitter to say the development team didn't want to release a demo because "we don't want to spoil the story".

He continued: "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."

News that there won't be a Season or Online Pass comes as some surprise given the inclusion of multiplayer for the first time in the action adventure series.

Martin went hands-on with the Tomb Raider multiplayer and had a chat with Crystal Dynamics and multiplayer developer Eidos Montreal about it. Turns out you weren't the only one confused by Tomb Raider's multiplayer.
