Although a new Tomb Raider game has been rumored and promised for a while, a teaser website leaked the name and release date Shadow of the Tomb Raider yesterday. Today, publisher Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal officially announced Shadow of the Tomb Raider and released a brief teaser trailer.
As the leak yesterday suggested, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will release on those aforementioned platforms on September 14 of this year. While details on the game’s story are currently scarce, a brief description does promise that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be “Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider.”
That being said, the announcement’s press release does confirm that the game will have Xbox One X support. While the developers haven’t told us much about Shadow of the Tomb Raider at this time, they are promising to reveal more at an event on April 27 at a Tribeca Games event at Tribeca Film Festival.
In this event hosted by Geoff Keighley, several developers pivotal to the franchise and Lara Croft voice actress Camilla Luddington herself will be in attendance to discuss the “evolution of Lara Croft” alongside an extended gameplay demo Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Until then, a brief 20-second teaser trailer and the game’s website will have to suffice.
You can check out the game’s reveal trailer below. Shadow of the Tomb Raider will release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One September 14.
