Shadow of the Tomb Raider is getting challenges called "Warrior Trials". Warrior Trials are essentially tombs that are much more lethal than what players encountered in the prequels. Everything wants to kill you, including time-sensitive contraptions which spew out fire and other dangerous chemicals.
In order to succeed, you have to think quickly and master reflex-based gameplay. Sometimes you'll only get a split-second to dodge an obstacle or make a jump. The footage showcased during the Inside Xbox show at Gamescom 2018 gives players a great taste of what to expect. While there's a lot of action in the clip, it looks clear running on an Xbox One X at native 4K resolution. However, you might want to engage the optional 1080p 60 FPS mode if you want to attempt these challenges because it'll reduce input lag.
According to publisher Square Enix, 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.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is currently available for preorder at various retailers like Amazon or the Microsoft Store. The game should launch on Xbox One and other platforms on September 14, 2018, starting at $59.99.
