A trailer for the much anticipated Shadow of the Tomb Raider has gone live after an event showing off the game around the world to assorted press, fans and industry members.
The title of the new game leaked back in 2016 but information about the project has been relatively slim since then. It marks the third game in the modern Tomb Raider series. A movie based on its central character, Lara Croft, was released last March.
According to the press release, the new game challenges Lara to “master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.”
“’Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ will challenge Lara Croft in new and unexpected ways,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Our team has created a diverse set of skills, combat techniques and equipment for players to master, and they’ll certainly need them if they hope to survive the deadly jungle environments and tombs.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider hits PlayStation 3, Windows and Xbox One on September 14th.
