E3 2018: Shadow Of The Tomb Raider's First Gameplay Trailer Revealed

Tomb Raider is back.


During Square Enix's E3 2018 press conference the company unveiled some brand new Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay. The video, which you can watch above, shows off some of the game's new mechanics and the darker tone present in this third and final portion of Lara Croft's origin story.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider contains a more brutal Lara than the 2013 reboot and its sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider. In fact, we're even left wondering at this early stage whether Lara might actually be the game's villain.

Aside from the darker tone, there's also more of a focus on stealth and more sophisticated traversal, including fully-fledged swimming.
