Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s teaser trailer has Lara exploring Mayan pyramids


After teasing an announcement for the upcoming Tomb Raider game yesterday with fans letting the cat out of the bag early, Square Enix has released a teaser trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Previously, the official Tomb Raider website was updated with a tease for the announcement today, which fans quickly deduced via the HTML code that it would be for Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Today, the trailer that was being teased is out to view, and it’s the first glimpse we’ve seen of the upcoming game. In the teaser trailer, we see Lara exploring a rocky area with plenty of terrain to cover, bad guys with guns, and what looks like a series of Mayan pyramids and/or ruins. It’s unclear exactly where she is in the video, but one thing’s for sure: there’s probably a tomb to raid or two out there.

The teaser is only 23 seconds, but it’s just a small taste of what’s to come, with April 27 coming around the bend with a full reveal for the game. It’s planned for launch on Sep. 14, 2018, with opportunities for players to meet the developers and try the game early at a few different launch events. 

If you’re looking to play through the conclusion to Lara Croft’s origin story, you’ll finally get to do so later this year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
