Crystal Dynamics global brand director Karl Stewart has confirmed the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot will not feature a Season Pass or an Online Pass.
Such initiatives, whereby players pay up front for content to be released over the course of months, have become commonplace of late. Prices for season passes range from Halo 4’s $25 War Games pass to Call of Duty: Black Ops II’s $50 Season Pass.
Online Passes, like those included with Uncharted 3 and Homefront, force second-hand players to pay a fee–typically $10–for access to the game’s online component.
In addition, Stewart announced that the company has no plans to release a demo for Tomb Raider. “We don’t want to spoil the story,” he said.
