Square Enix, Eidos Montréal, and Crystal Dynamics gave the first look at Shadow of the Tomb Raider today, in the official “The End of the Beginning” reveal trailer.
Created by a team of veteran Tomb Raider developers at Eidos-Montréal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, the game will be available on September 14, 2018 for the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC/Steam.
The story takes place after the events of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The protagonist Lara Croft is an archaeologist on an expedition to Latin America looking for a Mayan relic which has a connection to her late father. Trinity, a paramilitary organization dedicated to investigating the supernatural, seek the relic to reshape the world. During the expedition Lara sets off a Mayan apocalypse and she attempts to save the world.
Like its predecessor, the game is an action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. There are numerous adjustments made to gameplay, which is otherwise identical to Rise:
- The controls for swimming have been completely revised, as Lara is now able to hold her breath underwater for a longer period of time due to the introduction of air pockets.
- She also gains the ability to rappel down a cliff using a rope.
- Stealth becomes an important part of the game, Lara is being able to disengage from combat when she escapes from enemies’ line of sight.
- The game (Like its predecessors) allows players to hunt wild animals, craft materials using the resources collected, solve puzzles and explore optional tombs.
Special editions of the game will be available, including the Digital Deluxe Edition, Croft Edition and Ultimate Edition.
