Tomb Raider hits 1 million players in 48 hours


Karl Stewart, global brand manager at the Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics, has suggested the title has already passed the 1 million mark.

Using twitter to express his feelings on the matter, Stewart said,"Wow, 1m gamers playing in less than 48hrs! @tombraider fans, you're AMAZING Hearing some stores are running low..more copies are on the way!"

Our review is already live for Tomb Raider and judging by comments so far, you are loving the game too.

If you've not grabbed the game yet then you can do so below.

I wonder how many of them are playing the multiplayer? I can't bring myself to try it so far, but I hear it's really crap, and buggy too.

I wouldn't even go there Gloria, enjoy it as a single player game then move on.

I wasn't planning on it, enjoying the single player though, even if the story is a bit silly and the characterization inconsistent.

I'll probably be looking to get this game when it comes down in price, but that is an impressive figure.

31 quid is a great price for it. easily worth full retail in my eyes so to get it at that just made it all the better

ill be boosting the multiplayer Achievements but other than that it is not worth it, the single player is absolutely top notch in fact gonna try a whole play through on hard with just walking so i can soak it all in again

I tried the online but raged at the lack of spawn protection. Single player wise is is amazing. One death in the game I was a bit hmmmmm at but I won't mention that here.

It will be less than half that within a week. A well reviewed game hitting high player numbers in the first 48hours is no surprise, it's keeping a high number in the weeks/months following that's worth mentioning

I've rented it out in preparation for a weekend playthrough, but my first takeaway on starting it was that Camilla Luddington is a horrible voice actress.

I'm a fair way into the single player campaign now and have to say its pretty amazing (besides all the QTE's at the beginning), as for the mp i've only played one match so far but i haven't seen anything that impressed me really.

Yeah i have played a few games of multiplayer its ok but nothing special. It just looks poor compared to the main game.

I'm absolutely loving the game at the moment, I got it on PC and haven't run into any issues that have been mentioned on my 580. I have no interest whatsoever in the multiplayer and really disappointed the first batch of DLC is for multiplayer, who is honestly play that and enjoying it? I can't imagine its many people.

Fan of the original Tomb Raider and the new look looks like my type of game. Really glad everyone is giving it positives, even though I'll not play the multiplayer anyway so it doesn't bother me that it's below par. Will grab this once I've done my other games.

Loving the game so far, great mix of gameplay elements and the graphics are mind blowing. The island is so well realised and the art direction is incredible. Not a fan of some of the voice acting and drab characters, but it's still a solid title and well worth the full price.

Hmm, note the phrasing though "1m players in 48hrs"? If he's just going by combined player stats from across all the versions of the game wouldn't that also take in all the rentals of the game, review copies and most importantly multiple people playing the same copy of the game on seperate accounts? I think it's safe to say the actual sell through to customers is considerably less than a million at this point... but I guess that might change come it's first full week on shelves. We'll see.
