New Shadow of the Tomb Raider Key Art Hints at Upcoming Setting

Ever since the official reveal of Shadow of the Tomb Raider last month, details on the upcoming game have been pretty sparse. However, new key art released by Square Enix gives us our first detailed look at Lara Croft, while also hinting more at the setting for the upcoming game.

As we’ve detailed before, it seems like the premise for the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider will have Lara traveling to either South or Central America thanks to the Mayan-esque pyramids shown at the end of the teaser trailer. In the new artwork shown (above), Croft can be scene resting against a tree with a similar looking pyramid in the distance, while an eclipse of some sort also occurs behind her.

Knowing that the Tomb Raider series often dips into the paranormal, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the eclipse trigger something in the game, but we’ll have to wait for more information there before jumping to any conclusions.

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.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider will launch on September 14, 2018.
