The third game in the recently rebooted Tomb Raider series, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam). It’s published by Square Enix and developed by Eidos-Montreal in partnership with long-time Tomb Raider developers Crystal Dynamics. See the launch trailer above.
“With Shadow of the Tomb Raider, our development team has done a marvelous job of creating a compelling conclusion to Lara’s origin story, while still showcasing our strengths as a studio,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Eidos-Montréal prides itself on building captivating, immersive worlds and Shadow of the Tomb Raider reinforces that pedigree in a significant way.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes Lara, now a more seasoned adventurer, into the deep jungles of South America. She battles the military organization known as Trinity, and accidentally helps unleash a Mayan apocalypse (oops). As she races to prevent impending doom she will hunt wild animals, raid some tombs, and kill lots of bad guys.
“I’ve been a part of the reboot from the very start and it’s so gratifying to have helped shepherd the series along over the years,” said Dan Chayer-Bisson, Game Director at Eidos-Montréal. “Shadow of the Tomb Raider delivers something special for all fans of the series, whether this is your first Tomb Raider experience or you’ve played every installment. The team and I are proud of what we’ve created, and hope players everywhere enjoy Lara’s defining moment.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s rated M for Mature for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, and Strong Language.
