Recently, Square Enix unveiled Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the conclusion to Lara Croft's origin story. In the game, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. According to the company, 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.
Today, extended footage surfaced online. The Xbox One X gameplay showcases a small city packed with indigenous people who appear to be cut off from the rest of the world. As Lara explores the marketplace, she sees numerous civilians tending to various tasks. The first two games in the Tomb Raider reboot were very isolated experiences. Shadow of the Tomb Raider feels much more alive as a result of this.
The environments are also much more interactive this time around. Unlike Rise of the Tomb Raider, you can climb trees and do so much more. The visuals are also better, but should be seen as a refinement over the prequel rather than a significant leap. The textures seem to be the highlight of the upgrade.
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.
