Square Enix has released a ton of new info about Shadow of the Tomb Raider today which is due out later this year. This is the third game based on the reboot trilogy that started with Tomb Raider 2013 and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Unlike Rise of the Tomb Raider though, Shadow of the Tomb Raider does not have any timed exclusivity on any platform. It will be released simultaneously for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on September 14th, 2018.
In a press release that was issued earlier this week, this new game sees Lara Croft venturing out to try and save the world from a Mayan apocalypse. TV star Camilla Luddington again reprises the role as Lara Croft as she has to go through deadly jungles, terrifying tombs and more in her adventure.
“Thanks to their incredible expertise, knowledge of the franchise and outstanding creativity, Eidos-Montréal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, is delivering a powerful experience with Shadow of the Tomb Raider,” said Yosuke Matsuda, president and representative director of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. “Shadow of the Tomb Raider will take the series to new heights and Lara Croft to new depths.”
“Shadow of the Tomb Raider will challenge Lara Croft in new and unexpected ways,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Our team has created a diverse set of skills, combat techniques and equipment for players to master, and they’ll certainly need them if they hope to survive the deadly jungle environments and tombs.”
