The new hair setting was previously quite taxing on even the most high-end systems, causing large framerate drops when turned on. The new update has now lowered the amount of memory costing for the realistic hair but also increased simulation and graphical qualities.
We have just made public a new version of the PC version of Tomb Raider, build 1.0.722.3. This patch will be applied by Steam automatically when you next start the game. If your game does not update, please restart the Steam client.Among the new changes are also fixes to Nvidia graphics card users who found the title more taxing then AMD users. A new driver has been released that coincides with the Tomb Raider patch, hopefully increasing performance among several GeForce GPUs.
We’ve been working closely with NVIDIA to address the issues experienced by some Tomb Raider players. In conjunction with this patch, NVIDIA will be releasing updated drivers that help to improve stability and performance of Tomb Raider on NVIDIA GeForce GPUs. We are continuing to work together to resolve any remaining outstanding issues. We recommend that GeForce users update to the latest GeForce 314.21 drivers (posting today) for the best experience in Tomb Raider.You can grab the new drivers here for 32-bit and here for 64-bit, and can also find the full patch notes available on Steam here.

Currently AMD is trialling the new technology in upcoming action title Tomb Raider, where iconic character Lara Croft will be giving a mane full of realistic hair that will surely combat any enemies along her way.
Lara Croft is an iconic character with an equally iconic ponytail. Re-imagining Lara and her haircut for the 2013 release of Tomb Raider wasn’t just an opportunity to modernize the character, it was an opportunity to substantially advance in-game realism by tackling the long-standing challenge of unrealistic hair. Through painstaking collaboration between software developers at AMD and Crystal Dynamics, Tomb Raider proudly features the world’s first real-time hair rendering technology in a playable game: TressFX Hair.For those interested in the new AMD feature you'll require a graphics card featuring the Graphics Core Next architecture, like the AMD Radeon HD 7000 series. You can check out a glimpse of the old and new hair compared below (more at our game page), but also swing by AMD's new blog for a more detailed outlook of the new technology. For those who haven't yet, you can also check out AusGamers fresh review on Tomb Raider over here.

Tomb Raider Forums has reportedly gotten a hold of the article itself and summarised the details within (thanks Eurogamer).
The multiplayer component has been developed by a separate team at Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Edios Montreal, leaving the US-based Crystal Dynamics to focus on the singleplayer. The reports notes Lara's absence from multiplayer, describing a Survivors versus Scavengers scenario built around a group of Lara's allies banding together against the island's hostile inhabitants.
Three game-types were confirmed, with the familiar Team Deathmatch, an asymmetrical Rescue mode where survivors must collect and stock med packs while scavengers bleed them out, and Cry for Help which the article suggests might be more exploration, and less combat-orientated.
There is also reportedly different player stats and loadouts, with an XP system and maps filled with traps, climbable surfaces, and destructible environments.
