With just over two weeks to go until its September 14, 2018 debut, the hype for Shadow of the Tomb Raider is ramping up. Square Enix added to the anticipation with an all new trailer that provided an overview of what to expect from the new entry. The one-minute long TV spot may be the game’s best trailer yet.
Check it out below:
Despite the release date fast approaching, it still feels as though there’s plenty left to learn about Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Other than brief details about the Mayan setting and the coming apocalypse, story information remains scarce. It’s a good thing, too. If this is indeed Lara Croft’s final adventure in the Crystal Dynamics-led trilogy, some details should be kept secret.
Contrarily, Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s gameplay has been shown off at length. For instance, Lara Croft’s vastly improved stealth tactics have been showcased. A couple of short trailers focused on the Tomb Raider’s survival skills. Plus, the game’s “treacherous traversal” sat front and center.
The synopsis for Shadow of the Tomb Raider is as follows:
Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
