While Dark Horse publishes their adventures of Lara Croft and a new movie hits theaters this week, Square Enix has formally announced the third installment of the rebooted game series will be released on September 14, 2018. Shadow of the Tomb Raider will release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 game systems.
According to a statement released by Square Enix, Shadow of the Tomb Raider “will deliver Lara Croft’s defining moment.”
The game is being developed by Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) instead of creator Crystal Dynamics (CD currently lists The Avengers Project as their next game). It looks to take Lara to the Mayan jungle and feature a theme of darkness and astronomical events. A full first reveal of the game will take place at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on April 27.
Fans who go to the game’s website will see a countdown clock that runs down to the reveal event. On Monday at 9:00AM PST, a puzzle will go on the Tomb Raider site which will likely lead those who solve it, or find the answer on a message board, to one of three special reveal events around the world.
