Shadow of the Tomb Raider Box Art

This game was released on September 14, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third entry in the reboot series developed by Eidos Montréal and Crystal Dynamics, and published by Square Enix. In this latest installment, Lara Croft must traverse an unforgiving jungle, explore a vast hidden city, overcome terrifying tombs, and stave off a Mayan apocalypse.

The upcoming game is said to be challenging in new and unexpected ways. According to the developers, they have created a diverse set of skills, combat techniques, and equipment. Mastering these will be necessary to survive the deadly jungle environments, underwater tunnel systems, and ancient Mayan tombs.
