    The Differences Between Uncharted And Tomb Raider, According To Lara Croft Dev

    There's not long to go until Shadow of the Tomb Raider's release date of September 14 arrives. It's been almost three years since its predecessor, Rise of the Tomb Raider , launched on Xbox One, and in that time we've seen two games from Lara Croft's rival, Nathan Drake- Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Now, Shadow of the Tomb Raider developer Eidos Montreal has commented on what it feels the differences are between Lara's long-running series and Sony's own adventure franchise. "The tone is a little different-they're more grounded with their mythology, and we're...

    Lara Croft's origins trilogy comes to a close with Shadow of the Tomb Raider where she's now hunting down the villainous organization known as Trinity, instead of piecing together their motives and escaping their grasp. The new game doesn't stray too far from what you've come to expect from this current era of Tomb Raider, though-beginning with the reboot in 2013 and the follow-up, Rise of the Tomb Raider. We spent about four hours with Shadow of the Tomb Raider at a preview event, and while we hoped some minor flaws would be addressed this time around, the best parts of the series'...

  • Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Includes Classic Tomb Raider Outfits

    9 days ago - By GameSpot

    Like Rise of the Tomb Raider before it, September's Shadow of the Tomb Raider will include classic outfits for Lara Croft based on how she looked in old Tomb Raider gamers. There are at least three skins, the first of which is her standard Tomb Raider II look featuring her teal tanktop, brown shorts, and pistols holsters. Another skin is for Lara's look in Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness where she wore a black tank and shorts. The third is Lara in a bomber jacket from Tomb Raider II. All of them are polygonal and look very dated, as they should. Square Enix has confirmed their existence in...

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider Feels Like More of the Same.And That's OK

    9 days ago - By IGN

    I found myself, as Lara Croft, airborne and nearing the Amazon River in Peru. A storm hits, as it always does, and the plane goes down. Off course and in an unfamiliar area, Lara must find the living members of her team, assemble her tools, and decipher the clues before the bad guys, Trinity. Ain't no rest for the wicked.
    As you explore the opening hours of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, it becomes clear that parts of it are meant to be light on combat, which was okay by me after an action-packed first hour in Mexico. It instead focuses on familiarizing the player with Lara's new moves and...

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider builds on familiar foundations but makes for a strong evolution of the action-adventure trilogy.
    Later this year, Square Enix and Eidos Montréal are set to debut the third and final entry in the modern Tomb Raider trilogy, with the launch of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. After overcoming Siberian challenges and resisting Trinity forces, Lara Croft is setting out to further topple the relic-hungry organization. With a skillset more diverse than ever, the iconic explorer has entered her greatest form yet.
    On a surface level, Shadow of the Tomb Raider doesn't differ...
