The newest Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer shows details that’ll knock you off your feet. Before you go any further, you’ll want to take note of the PEGI 18 rating – that means it’s not for kids. This game isn’t meant for kids in any capacity, as it were. Not necessarily for an over-abundance of person-on-person violence, but for the constant potential for death of the main character.
If you’ve never played a Tomb Raider game, you’ll want to know in advance: It can get frustrating. Tomb Raider games can get super extremely maddeningly frustrating, and this trailer should provide some indication as to why. It’s like you’re Indiana Jones in the Temple of Traps and you’re also being hunted by both humans and wild animals of many sorts. But you don’t care about all that if you’re here – on with the show!
This trailer was released on the last day users could pre-order the game to get access two days earlier than General Availability. Through SquareEnix the game can be found on pre-order for the regular price. Normally this is the place where I’d warn you to wait for reviews before diving in, but for this you’ll find the reviews up at the same time as the pre-orders.
Last time we reviewed a Tomb Raider game it was Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, and it, too was radical. This newest Tomb Raider was developed by Eidos Montreal with Crystal Dynamics, and it’s been published by Square Enix. This game is set approximately two months after the end of the plot in Rise of the Tomb Raider – so make sure you’re following along!
