"Thanks to their incredible expertise, knowledge of the franchise and outstanding creativity, Eidos-Montréal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, is delivering a powerful experience with Shadow of the Tomb Raider", said Yosuke Matsuda, president and representative director of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd.
If the events are to repeat itself, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is unlikely about raiding tombs but more about getting into the tomb searching business. Lara Croft will be tasked with putting a stop to the Maya apocalypse.
The star of the critically acclaimed 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and the award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider®, Camilla Luddington, makes her return as Lara Croft® with yet another stunning performance in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This basically means that the game will cover the moment Lara Croft becomes a Tomb Raider - something that we feel has been covered in the series two instalments ago.
While the aforementioned trailer seems to indicate a renewed focus on the story aspects of the upcoming Tomb Raider, the marketing of these prequel titles has unfortunately led fans astray in the past.
In an early announcement to retailers, MGM and Warner Bros. are prepping Tomb Raider for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D on June 12. Those hoping that these dark but distinctly human themes would be explored in the eventual release, however, were sadly left wanting, as the effects of her time on the island are barely acknowledged.
Lara Croft is being pushed to her limits in a new cinematic trailer for the third entry in publisher Square Enix's modern Tomb Raider trilogy, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. On September 14th, 2018 you can also own Shadow of the Tomb Raider which is releasing on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
