Lara is back and this time she’s trying to prevent the Mayan apocalypse. The first trailer for the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider reveals that Lara’s next adventure might be darker and bloodier than any she’s been on before.
The Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer shows Lara racing (and falling) through a dense jungle as she stalks and takes down a few heavily armed guards. The trailer is steeped in Mayan visuals, with Lara saving a young person from being sacrificed as part of a ritual. Basically, it’s the classic Tomb Raider fare we’ve come to love.
While the trailer doesn’t reveal much, it is clear that the next game in the franchise will be a lot darker than previous iterations. Head of Eidos-Montreal David Anfossi has commented on how this new Tomb Raider game will challenge Lara in new and unexpected ways and that the game will see her becoming the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
Are you excited for Lara’s return? What do you think of the Mayan setting?
