Shadow of the Tomb Raider's Full Reveal Trailer is A Bloody Good Thrill Ride

The conclusion to Lara Croft's thrilling trilogy certainly looks as though it'll deliver. 


Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the latest entry in the rebooted Tomb Raider series, following Lara Croft through her rocky coming of age story to its thrilling conclusion. Square Enix has released the official trailer showing off exactly what to expect from the upcoming title, and it looks just as bloody and excellent as you were likely expecting. 

With its full Shadow of the Tomb Raider unveiling, Square Enix also revealed some early details regarding the game's Season Pass. If you want to join Lara on her whirlwind adventure, you have several different versions of the game to choose from. The standard edition is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but bigger Croft fans may want to opt for the Ultimate Edition, Croft Edition, or Steelbook Edition.

Regardless of what version you choose to pick up, if you preorder you'll get the game 48 hours earlier than everyone else. If you preorder the base game or the Croft Edition as a digital version, you'll get a skills booster back. You can see a listing of most of these things in the image Square Enix released below.

      So excited, even though she oddly looks like a a merc with blood lust in this one.

      Wondering if this is going to be good enough on PS4 Pro or is it worth getting an Xbox X for this.

        I am pumped for this on my XboneX. By the time it drops in Sept I will have a nice 4K tv. The impresses from the event last night where they showed the game were very positive. One guy said the HDR looked better than God f War or Horizon Zero Dawn. The game was running on an XboneX dev kit.
