Shadow of the Tomb Raider Officially Announced, Launching in September

After leaking yesterday, Square Enix has formally announced today that Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the title of the next game set in the Tomb Raider series. The game will be available in six months for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, when it launches on September 14, 2018. You can check out a brief teaser trailer for the game below.

Judging from the trailer, it seems like this time around Lara will be visiting the Mayan pyramids, which likely means players can expect to make a trip to South or Central America at some point. While we now know the title of the game and have seen a brief teaser, Square Enix promises more information will come with a full reveal next month on April 27. According to the company, there will be three exclusive reveal events, and fans can check out the Tomb Raider website for a chance to play the game and meet the developers there once more information comes out.
