Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Confirmed… Again

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

Lara Croft’s next installment is on its way to become one of the worst-kept secrets from Square Enix. Last November a very eager metro commuter in Montreal spotted what looked like the title for the new game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. While Square Enix decided to go down the silent path with this one, we have now further proofs that the name is legit.

This time, the leak pertains to a few logos and concept art scenes from the game. They belong to Takeoff Creative, a Californian studio that specializes in promotional marketing for, among other clients, videogame companies. Quite recently they added a group of images that not only ratify the future title of the series, they also sort of hint to possible gameplay mechanics. Their key art proposes different environment and lightning shots, as well as different weapon load-outs for Lara.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider: Waiting for Confirmation

While the game has skipped E3 2017, we have been told by Square Enix that we’ll hear more about it this year. This, as well as a confirmation on their side about all these clumsy leaks, remains to be seen. Since the reboot of the series in 2013 with Tomb Raider, things have been really good for the franchise. Sales have accompanied reception and everything is looking groovy on Square Enix’s end.

On top of this, the heroine is taking the big screen on May 16 next year. Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, Jason Bourne) is the chosen one to portray another chapter in Lara’s prolific biography. From what we have seen, the movie echoes sort of follows the style and vision of the present trilogy of games. In that sense, it constitutes another reboot and we hope we can see some fresher ideas on that front as well.
