E3 2018: Shadow of the Tomb Raider Gets Release Date, New Trailer

The truth feels farther away than ever in the next trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. 


The newest trailer for Eidos Montreal's and Square Enix's Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which premiered at today's E3 2018 Xbox Briefing, showed Lara raiding tombs, swinging from vines, and pursuing ancient artifacts. The most salient bit of info to come from the trailer is a September 14 release date across multiple platforms.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third game in Lara Croft's rebooted origin story, which began in 2013 with Tomb Raider and continued in 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider, both developed by Crystal Dynamics. Crystal passed the torch to Eidos Montreal for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Eidos Montreal is no stranger to the franchise. The studio assisted in both "Tomb Raider 2013" and Rise of the Tomb Raider by providing support to Crystal Dynamics.

The two studios have switched roles for Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Crystal Dynamics will assist Eidos Montreal as needed while the team works on their next project.

Raid more tombs when Shadow of the Tomb Raider launches on September 14.
