‘Tomb Raider’ Achievements leak, require extensive time in multiplayer

A full list of Achievements for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot has found its way onto the internet, and plenty of the tasks ask for dozens of hours spent in the game’s multiplayer modes. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

Bunch of nonsense, shoving down the Multiplayer like that.

I absolutely hate games that force online trophies/achievements. Thank god Uncharted 3 only had 2 and Mass Effect 3 had single player alternatives to their online trophies.

I imagined that being said in Dexter's voice. Well done.

look at all of those enemies killed achievements and only two optional tomb achievements. LO freaking L! I guess their story, which doesn't have any achievements, is too important for tombs to get in the way.

you know what you have to do dexter......

This sucks.
I am a completionest. It's how am wired. However, with the extensive Multiplayer Plat requirments in mind, I will be picking this title up later than expected. I don't mind grinding.. I just don't like being forced to do it in multiplayer.

15 of the 50 achievements/51 trophies are MP related. With the trophy/achievement to reach level 60 taking the longest. I have been a fan of the series, but with the introduction of MP, has me questioning if I really want to pick this up day one.

Think it really was the timing that made it all such an issue.

What does the addition of MP have to do with you playing and enjoying the SP for a series that you're supposedly a fan of?

Is it because you don't want to play MP to get a 1000 achievement points/platinum? Then simply don't try for it.

It's really puzzling to me why people would forego buying a game because it has an optional MP mode added to it.

I just said it has me questioning the notion to pick the game up on the first day of release. I can still be a fan and get it days or months after. I did it with Uncharted 2 and we all know how well received the MP was.

Trophies and achivement play no factor in me purchasing a game or enjoying it. If it did, I would never purchase a JRPG, WRPG or RPGs in general.

The fact that the MP has been announced just a few weeks ago, with a release 2 months away has me questioning the intentions of the developer and publisher. Why couldn't they pull an Naughty Dog and let us know almost 5 months in advance. Also it seems like the game was pushed back just to add the MP portion of the game.

I'm not the type of person to let something like this stop me from getting a game that I'm interested in, but it really is kind of low to force people into multiplayer this way.

At least with Uncharted the only multiplay trophies preventing platinum are to play ONE coop game and ONE competitive. You don't even need to be on the winning side and all of the more specific online trophies are in an "expansion" that is not required for the "core" trophies list and platinum.

The only thing that really ticks me off about trophies and achievements is the ones that are WAY too specific in what you need to do (only made worse when it is also multiplayer). A perfect example is the multiplayer trophies for AC:Brotherhood - Role Model being the worst. The ONLY way you can even begin to get these is through boosting. Good luck just getting them on your own by chance.

After all this ranting, these things didn't stop me from getting games like AC:Brotherhood, but as a completionist it does bum me out that I'll never really complete these games' lists out, but I've come to terms with that and moved on to other games. I'm proud of what I have and not going to dwell anymore over what I don't.

It's just one more sign that a game is being created expressly as a cash cow. Resources and time that could have gone into the singleplayer campaign are instead funneled into a tacked-on multiplayer mode that developers "herd" people into with achievements like these in some shallow attempt to squeeze a few more dollars out of consumers (presumably when the nickel-and-dime DLC starts rolling in, as is inevitable these days).

I hope you don't need online multiplayer trophies to get the platinum like it was in Uncharted.
Godchild1020  +   641d ago
These achievements indicate how the trophies will be and from the looks of it, you will need to obtain all the MP trophies as well as the SP trophies to get the Platinum.
claterz  +   641d ago
ahhh that kinda sucks, hopefully the MP is fun and I also hope it doesn't take too long to reach level 60 lol
paybackprahl  +   640d ago
I wouldn't be too sure. As a commenter below described, most of Uncharted 2 and 3's MP trophies were not required for the Platinum - they were labeled with a "+", which in Trophy terms considers them as DLC (optional) trophies.
Wintersun616  +   640d ago
What? All you had to do was play one Co-op game and one Deathmatch to get all the MP trophies required for Platinum on Uncharted 2 & 3. The rest of the MP trophies were not required for the plat.

I hate multiplayer trophies/achievements
azshorty2003  +   640d ago
Dammit me too! Because those are trophies I know I will never earn. I'm disliking the idea of TR Multiplayer more and more.
Root  +   641d ago
I HATE multiplayer achievements/trophies, add them in the inevitable online DLC map packs

the funniest thing about online trophies is that, Call of Duty doesn't have online trophies lol I find that pretty ironic
Dark_Overlord  +   640d ago
I'm guessing you haven't played Black Ops 2? Treyarch stuck some MP trophies in, the bloody idiots >:(
Breadcrab  +   640d ago
The Modern Warfare titles didn't have any, I believe.

Treyarch CoDs do have a few multiplayer ones unfortunately, but at least their aren't too many.

My major gripe with multi-trophs is that with most games, the multiplayer community quickly dies out and becomes inactive, eventually making it impossible to get them.

I'm close to the platinum for Red Faction: Armageddon, but since nobody plays online anymore, it's nigh-on impossible for me to get one particular trophy, which requires 4 simultaneous players to do online co-op together. Grrrrr.

I loved Red Faction Armageddon MP (CO-OP yay), if you need an extra player (PSN) then send me a message :)

It is annoying as hell when online communities die out and make trophies impossible :(
Dark_Overlord  +   640d ago
Well that's a definite no buy from me now then, I'm sick of being forced to grind competitive MP (I hate it) to obtain the platinum, so now I avoid any game with trophies like reach level XX, kill XX people etc.

Too bad, I was originally going to buy it.
Jek_Porkins  +   640d ago
This article is very wrong, almost all of the Achievements were through the campaign. I am not sure why people need to find trouble where there simple is none. The game looks great, and I have it pre-ordered. For the easy Gamerscore I'll gladly give the online a try!
sdplisken  +   640d ago
as this game to the now lengthy list of franchises that DO NOT NEED MULTIPLAYER - THANKS COD!

If anyone is playing for fun like what games are supposed to be, then there's nothing to worry about. But NO, achievements and Trophies are serious business!
