The Tomb Raider franchise is a long and storied one, but in recent years it was rebooted to give the game a grittier feel which we reckon that they’ve managed to accomplish. However it seems that the game has taken its grittiness and darkness to the next level with the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider in which the game’s latest trailer has been released.
For those unfamiliar, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be the next installment in the Tomb Raider franchise following the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider back in 2015. It will also be the third installment in the rebooted franchise. It is unclear if the rebooted franchise will just be a trilogy of Tomb Raider games or if there could be more in the works.
According to Square Enix, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will see Lara Croft attempt to save the world from a Mayan event apocalypse. In any case the new trailer looks pretty good and while it’s not in-game footage, it does a good job of hyping its release. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is currently set for a release on the 14th of September.
The various editions of the game have been announced along with a season pass that will contain additional content.
