A splash page went live this morning teasing something Tomb Raider related being revealed tomorrow morning. But it didn’t take long for folks to take a peek at the HTML of the webpage. And sitting there is the title of the new game and its release date.
“Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the climactic finale of Lara’s origin story. Available September 14th 2018.”
UPDATE: You can check out the teaser below. Also, Square Enix is planning a full reveal for Shadow of the Tomb Raider on April 27th.
Original article continues.
There are a few more tidbits of info including all SKUs and pre-order incentives being revealed on April 27th, if you care about that stuff. And the platforms list shows Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Sorry Switch fans, this version of Lara Croft doesn’t appear to be coming to you.
The platform list makes it look like Microsoft won’t have time exclusivity with the franchise anymore. Which is a good thing. Outside of first-party games, everyone should be able to play the game at the same time.
The September release date is a good idea. Red Dead Redemption 2 is pushing everyone’s schedule ahead. Hell, even Call of Duty moved in front of it. No one wants to even attempt to pull away the millions of people that will be playing Rockstar’s western.
With the news out of the way, let’s talk wishlist. I’m going to keep mine short and sweet. Share what you want to see in the comments.
Even more tomb raiding. The Tomb Raider devs did a better job in Rise of the Tomb Raider, but I want even more. In a perfect world, we’d get a ‘Tomb’ map editor. A separate batch of co-op tombs would be nice too.
The return of dual pistols. We’ve played with bows and climbing axes for two games. It’s time to bring in the big guns – Lara’s dual pistols.
