Shadow of the Tomb Raider CG trailer looks gorgeous


Square Enix, Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics has just released a new 2 and a half minutes Shadow of the Tomb Raider CG trailer, and it looks gorgeous.

The new Tomb Raider game will continue on from the 2013 series reboot, and include the same Lara Croft voice actor Camilla Luddington.

Though we still don’t have any gameplay footage of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, you can check out some awkward “reaction videos” of a select few press and fans that were given an opportunity to see the game in action behind closed doors last week.

Watch the official Shadow of the Tomb Raider CG trailer below:

 

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must 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.

The star of the critically acclaimed 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and the award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider, Camilla Luddington, makes her return as Lara Croft with yet another stunning performance in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Thanks to their incredible expertise, knowledge of the franchise and outstanding creativity, Eidos Montreal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, is delivering a powerful experience with Shadow of the Tomb Raider,” said Yosuke Matsuda, president and representative director of Square Enix, “Shadow of the Tomb Raider will take the series to new heights and Lara Croft to new depths.”

Shadow of the Tomb Raider will challenge Lara Croft in new and unexpected ways,” said David Anfossi, Head of Eidos Montreal. “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 launches on September 14, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms.
