The announcement may have leaked a little earlier than planned, but now we have official confirmation that Lara Croft’s next adventure is called Shadow of the Tomb Raider and will be released on September 14th.
We have little more than the brief teaser trailer to go on at the minute, sadly. The 20-second video features no gameplay footage and just flashes through a few classic Croft scenarios, including skulking through the jungle, clambering up a cliff face and plummeting into a river. Expect lots more wheezing and pained expressions, then.
Aside from that, we have the promise that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will “deliver Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider”. Uh-huh!
The game will be fully unveiled on April 27th and you can even attend one of the exclusive reveal events. If you head over to the official Tomb Raider website you can sign up for a chance to play the game early and meet the devs.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is scheduled for a simultaneous release on September 14th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
