After teasing Shadow of the Tomb Raider in March, Square Enix has thrown back the curtains as promised. Eidos Montreal is taking the lead on development, with a team staffed by veterans from the previous two Tomb Raider games. Crystal Dynamics is also working on games using the Marvel license, which explains the change in developers.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider follows the latest chapter in Lara Croft’s ascent to becoming the Tomb Raider gamers have come to know and love. The game is set on the eve of the Mayan apocalypse, where Lara must master the jungle, the tombs, and her own destiny to prevent the end of the world.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set to launch simultaneously on September 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows. This will be the first title in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise to do so.
