Teaser released for 'Shadow of the Tomb Raider'

16 March 2018

Angelina Jolie's time as Lara Croft has long since concluded, but you can see what Alicia Vikander does with the character when the Tomb Raider reboot hits theaters this Friday, March 16.

Now it's time to put that low resolution video down because the team behind Shadow of the Tomb Raider have officially released the first look at Lara Croft's upcoming adventure and it looks absolutely wild!

In a screenshot shared by the Eurogamer, Square Enix's HTML revealed that the Shadow of the Tomb Raider is going to be the "climactic finale" of Lara Croft's origin story. Called The Battle of the Boroughs, New York area players level 30 and above are invited to enter online qualifiers beginning on April 14, and finalists will compete in the amateur tournament during the festival.

The teaser really doesn't tell us much at all about the next chapter in Lara's story, which will follow 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Square Enix is said to have invited some reporters to see and experience firsthand the Shadow of the Tomb Raider in Montreal. But with Tomb Raider, the answer is "no". Similar to the previous installments, players can expect a lot of gunfights, rock climbing, impossible stunts, flaming arrows, and insane encounters when Shadow of the Tomb Raiders arrives later this year. Vikander makes for a decent Lara Croft, even though her accent sometimes wanders west of Oxford to somewhere in the Irish Sea. Those PlayStation players ended up having to wait nearly a full year before finally getting their hands on the game. The game itself arrives on the PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 14.

Another thing worth mentioning is that, unlike the last game, the very smart decision has been made to not make this latest entry a timed exclusive. The film starts off with Vikander's character getting in trouble with the law and subsequently being bailed out by an associate of her father's (played by Kristen Scott Thomas).

"But that is also what shapes her as she becomes this action hero that we so well know her to be".

"Tomb Raider", a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for "sequences of violence and action, and for some language".
