Square Enix, Eidos-Montréal, and Crystal Dynamics officially unveiled the latest game in the rebooted Tomb Raider game franchise, the trilogy-maker titled Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with a new trailer recently.
The full trailer, titled “The End of the Beginning,” offers us more insight into what’s going on in the next game, and makes a little more sense of some of the few things we have seen in the past, like that shot of Lara Croft and the solar eclipse we saw when the game was first announced last month.

Here’s more on the game and some quotes from the press release announcing the trailer:
In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
The star of the critically acclaimed 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and the award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider®, Camilla Luddington, makes her return as Lara Croft® with yet another stunning performance in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
“Thanks to their incredible expertise, knowledge of the franchise and outstanding creativity, Eidos-Montréal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, is delivering a powerful experience with Shadow of the Tomb Raider,” said Yosuke Matsuda, president and representative director of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. “Shadow of the Tomb Raider will take the series to new heights and Lara Croft to new depths.”
“Shadow of the Tomb Raider will challenge Lara Croft in new and unexpected ways,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Our team has created a diverse set of skills, combat techniques and equipment for players to master, and they’ll certainly need them if they hope to survive the deadly jungle environments and tombs.”
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is currently scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One later this year on September 14th.
