During the Square Enix panel today at E3, they revealed some key gameplay examples for the new Shadow of the Tomb Raider video game. This edition in the franchise is taking a darker look at Lara Croft.
This new gameplay reveals Lara Croft showing off skills she learned in the jungle of Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015) and Tomb Raider (2013). Shes a much more ruthless fighter using her terrain to help take down her enemies in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Also in this reveal, we see an old friend of hers, Jonah Maiava, as Lara tries to level a plane and loses the back of it in the process (and potentially Jonah).
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is definitely a promising game from Square Enix, and they finally got Tomb Raider right.
“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.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC September 14th 2018.
