Shadow of the Tomb Raider release date announced with teaser trailer

Posted March 15, 2018 by Richard Lee Breslin in Announcements, Gaming News, PC, PS4, Release Date, Trailers, Xbox One

Following the leaks of this week and from publisher Square Enix’s promise at the end of last year, not to mention the unintentional or intentional leak from 2016, Shadow of the Tomb Raider has finally been official announced.

The announcement was not only made with a teaser trailer for the game, but we also got a set release date too.  The trailer itself doesn’t give too much away, other than featuring our Lara being chased by the bad guys, hunting down said bad buys, climbing, falling and being the general bad as we know her to be.

Square Enix has also stated that this will be the last of her origins tale from the rebooted series.  However, this will by no means be the end of this Lara I would image, but after this instalment, I would perhaps expect to see an older, wiser Lara Croft.  We do know also that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be developed by Eidos Montreal and not Crystal Dynamics, who are now working on a Marvel Avengers game.

Also, which will surely please most fans, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will have no timed console exclusivity BS as it will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One simultaneously on Friday, September 14th 2018.  Square Enix has also promised that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will have a further unveiling on Friday, April 27th, I cannot wait.  In the meantime, please check out the games teaser trailer below.
