Tomb Raider reboot coming to Mac January 23

Mac App Store buyers will lose access to multiplayer

The recently rebooted version of Tomb Raider will come to the Mac tomorrow, January 23, porting publisher Feral Interactive has announced. The game goes back to the origins of Lara Croft, and finds her shipwrecked on an island where she has to survive both human and natural threats using mix of combat, stealth, and puzzle-solving. One of the new gameplay elements is an upgrade system, which lets players improve weapons and equipment.

The title also features a multiplayer mode, pitting Lara's crew versus the island's scavengers. Playing online requires a Steam account, however, which means multiplayer will be inaccessible to people who buy the Mac App Store version -- the version launching tomorrow. Steam-compatible editions of the game will reach other stores on January 30; multiplayer will still be limited to Mac-on-Mac, despite the earlier launches of Windows and console versions.

The Mac software will cost $50. Players must have at least a 2GHz Intel Mac running OS X 10.9.1, with 4GB of RAM and a video card with 512MB or more of memory. Recommended specs, however, include a 2.4GHz Intel system, 8GB of RAM, and a video card with 1GB of memory.
