Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Trailer & More Details Released

By Yue Lynn on Apr 29, 2018

After months of anticipation and a movie adaptation, Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s trailer has finally dropped worldwide!

With the trailer’s release, the game’s official website has also released details on the title:

Judging from the trailer and ominous plot description, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will feature a darker story and a grittier Lara Croft. But fans need not to get their knickers in a twist as our favourite adventure-seeking heroine is still very much the Lara Croft we know even though the events she had to suffer through from the previous two games had altered her to a slight degree.

In the trailer, you can still see good ole Lara doing familiar Lara things like killing enemies with her signature climbing axe, jumping into gushing rivers, facing off against radical antagonists and partaking in more death-defying rock-climbing!

While there isn’t a lot of info on the plot yet, reported an article that appeared in the magazine Jeux Video which stated that “The survivors and ultimate survivors of Yamatai Island, Sam, Reyes and Jonah will join the fearless archaeologist in this adventure that will trace the crucial moment when she will become Tomb Raider…” However, Camilla Luddington, the actor behind Lara Croft tweeted that the aforementioned information isn’t true “unless something has changed”. Well, we are still many months away from the game’s release so anything (changes) could happen in said months...

Additionally, here are some very important infographics and images for fans:
