Watch Ten Minutes of Shadow of the Tomb Raider Gameplay


With a little over a month to go, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are gearing up the marketing for what’s looking to be the biggest Tomb Raider game ever made, and today we can share with you ten minutes of Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay.

In the Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay trailer we see Lara visiting the largest town hub ever created for a Tomb Raider game, built amongst a luscious rainforest, beautiful waterfalls and steep cliff walls. Lara explores a thriving marketplace where she can exchange goods, and communicates with the natives in their native tongue, accepting a mission and then heading out to explore the region.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay is looking almost identical to Rise of the Tomb Raider which launched in November 2015. With the new game launching almost three years later, expect to see some graphical enhancements (although the previous iteration looked stunning anyway), as well as many new features such as a more reliable way to swan dive, shown in the trailer below.

Watch the official “Welcome to Paititi” Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay trailer below:

 

Home to a civilization untouched by modern culture, explore the largest hub ever found in a Tomb Raider game featuring a bustling city with challenge tombs, side missions, and more!

The series reboot which began with the 2013 self-titled Tomb Raider has received critical acclaim, pushing the franchise to new heights. While Hollywood directors may not be able to hit their mark for Tomb Raider movies with the recent average-rated Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, there is still big money in the franchise with the budgeted $90 million movie pulling close to $300 million at the box office worldwide.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed Rise of the Tomb Raider at launch, giving it 4.5 stars and saying “It looks and plays wonderfully, and tells an engrossing tale of sacrifice and perseverance.”

Shadow of the Tomb Raider will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms on September 14, 2018.
