Square Enix has announced Shadow of the Tomb Raider, a new installment in this popular series of video games that will go on sale next September 14 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will close the trilogy on the origins of Lara Croft and has a first trailer teaser in which it is intuited that the new adventure will take place between pre-Columbian pyramids and other archaeological ruins of South America.
The announcement of the new Tomb Raider has been almost as uneven as the adventures of its protagonist. A day before its presentation, among the source code of the official website of the game were discovered most of the details that the Japanese publisher has just announced a day later. Among them, that this new adventure will be ” the climactic outcome of the story about the origin of Lara ”
In the video , just 20 seconds long, you can see most of the elements that the players have been able to experience throughout the previous two installments of the series, from the climbing scenes and the use of the bow, to the many blows and falls that the young Lara suffers while trying to reach her goals.
It is still unknown what development study is taking over the title, but as it was said from Kotaku more than a year ago, it could be Eidos Montreal, who would have taken over from Crystal Dynamics, the San Francisco studio that was commissioned of the two previous deliveries. Surely it is something that will become official on April 27, a day in which new details about the game will be announced.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be the third part of a trilogy that began in 2013 with the launch of a reboot of the franchise, called Tomb Raider to dry, and that had its continuation in 2015 with the arrival of its sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider. Both games differed from previous deliveries by offering a type of adventure with more open scenarios and a greater emphasis on survival.
Throughout the more 20 years of the life of the Tomb Raider series have sold around 63 million units of their games, making Lara Croft one of the most iconic characters of the popular culture of the last two decades. Without going any further, today comes to theaters the new movie based on this character, which on this occasion is played by the actress Alicia Vikander.
The new adventure of Lara Croft could be set in South America and will involve the closing of the trilogy on the origins of this character
