Shadow of the Tomb Raider's latest trailer showcases gorgeous visuals and hilarious photo mode

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the conclusion to Lara Croft's origin story. 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 trailer shows off some of the breathtaking locations found throughout the game. Unlike the frozen wastelands in Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes place in a lush jungle. You can also interact with the environment and its inhabitants like never before. However, the star of the show has to be the hilarious photo mode.

Let's say that you spot an adorable llama and want to commemorate that by snapping a Polaroid with it. Shadow of the Tomb Raider can make that happen. Better yet, you can change Lara's expression so that it's not affectless. Make sure you add a smirk or a wink in there!

The game is currently available for preorder at various retailers like Amazon or the Microsoft Store. Shadow of the Tomb Raider should launch on Xbox One and other platforms on September 14, 2018, starting at $59.99. Those who preorder the Digital Deluxe Edition (opens in new tab) or "Croft Edition (opens in new tab)" can play it on September 12. Lastly, the title runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X, but also features a 1080p 60 FPS mode.

  • Looking forward to this!
  • Not going to lie, random stuff like this is my favourite part of open world games. "Lara, we must stop the apocalypse at all costs" "I can't, I have to get the perfect photo with this monkey."
