Square Enix Officially Announces Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

At the moment, not much is yet known about the upcoming game's plot or its set of characters, but the trailer does provide a glimpse of what players should expect when it arrives on September 14. "Shadow" being in the title of the game is evidence, for one. It has even beat out the highly anticipated A Wrinkle in Time from box office glory, which stars some of Hollywood's most sought-after leading ladies including Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah Winfrey. For now though, we at least have a brief teaser trailer to gawk at.

Videogame movies are notoriously hard to pull off (World of Warcraft, Resident Evil and Assassin's Creed are three recent high-profile plops) but the Tomb Raider films perhaps come closest to being the exception.

The official word is now just that the game should be announced and released in 2018. Fans around the world can visit the official Tomb Raider website for a chance to play the game and meet the developers at one of three exclusive reveal events.

You can check out the game's reveal trailer below. But looking on the bright side of life, they only have to wait two years for the next game. After all, the Hype Train giveth and the Hype Train taketh away.

The original Tomb Raider game was launched in 1996 by Derby-based company Core Design and went on to become a global phenomenon. Tomb Raider Legends featured a similar setting which means that parts of Shadow of the Tomb Raider could be inspired by Tomb Raider Legend. There could be a clue in the tweet from the Tomb Raider Twitter account where it's revealed that a new Tomb Raider game is coming in 2018. Shadow of the Tomb Raider will release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One September 14. Nonetheless, her Tomb Raider look is hardly out of sync with Lara's game counterparts because she very closely resembles the more athletic, and less exaggerated, Croft found in the 2013 reboot series.
