Today, Square Enix hosted its annual E3 2018 briefing in which the publisher revealed additional details about games like Just Cause 4 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. For example, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Mayan apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
The new gameplay footage starts off with a violent crash landing that takes place in an unforgiving jungle environment. Lara is separated from her companion, Jonah, and has to find him. Unlike Rise of the Tomb Raider, you can climb trees and do so much more this time around. The visuals are also better, but should be seen as a refinement over the prequel rather than a significant leap.
Lastly, Lara now has the ability to chain together stealth takedowns for an even more cohesive experience. In a few months, you'll be able to explore underwater ruins and survive in all sorts of areas like sprawling cities to isolated caverns.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is currently available for preorder at various retailers. The game should launch on Xbox One and other platforms on September 14, 2018, starting at $59.99.
