Square Enix opened its E3 2018 showcase today with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, showing the very beginning of the game as well as some gameplay. Eidos Montreal senior game director Daniel Chayer-Bisson walked viewers through the gameplay itself as franchise star Lara Croft became "one with the jungle" in order to take down enemies in a variety of sneaky and savage ways. In its short E3 presser, Square showed off a lot of new content, including Lara shooting a guy in the arm with a bow and arrow, making him scream in pain and shoot out his gun in terror - alerting a fellow guard, classic stealth game stuff. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
There'll be grappling and wall-running, as well as some new stealth mechanics. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. For more information on Shadow of the Tomb Raider, make sure to stay tuned this week. Outgunned and outnumbered - Lara must use everything she's learned from the brutal environment against Trinity.
There's not a huge amount of anything new to go on, but it did look like there'll be plenty of what made Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider so good. In addition, NVIDIA has announced that it will host a behind closed doors, first time playable demo of Shadow of the Tomb Raider on PC.
