It’s hard to believe that the last iteration of the critically-acclaimed reboot of Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, released only three years ago. And now, Square Enix, Eidos-Montréal, and Crystal Dynamics have delivered the worldwide premiere of the first gameplay trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider during the Microsoft E3 2018 media briefing. Check out the full trailer after the break. Continue reading

Created by a team of veteran Tomb Raider developers at Eidos-Montréal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, the game will be available on September 14, 2018 for the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 system and Windows PC/Steam.

As expected since the E3 2015 announcement teaser earlier this month, the first gameplay footage for Crystal Dynamic’s Rise of the Tomb Raider was shown during Microsoft’s E3 press briefing this morning. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2013’s critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot delivered on all expectations. As you can tell in the video above, the gameplay presentation showcased death-defying action, pitting Lara Croft in what is expected to be her biggest adventure yet.
Although a sequel to the 2013 reboot, Rise of the Tomb Raider is still loosely considered a prequel to the original games from the ’90s. We find our young Lara learning the ropes, literally, as she develops further into the tomb raider she’s meant to become. Every aspect of this demo is exhilarating, full of intense, critical thinking, and quick reflexes on the part of the player. The snowy mountain climb makes the previous game look like Lara was riding on training wheels. Rise of the Tomb Raider is not playing around this time.
Those who played the recent Tomb Raider game know that Lara’s luck is not the greatest and the developers seem to love putting her through the ringer. Rise of the Tomb Raider is definitely upping the stakes with environmentally challenging tasks and even more grizzly obstacles to overcome. This demo has me very excited to see the finished product and I look forward to when it comes out for PlayStation 4.
Here’s some official screenshots of Rise of the Tomb Raider from Square Enix that released today:
And here’s the official plot synopsis for Rise of the Tomb Raider, courtesy of Square Enix:
“In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. Obsessed by what she has seen, Lara is now threatened by a shadow organization intent on killing her for what she knows. She is pushed to her physical and mental limits as she seeks the truth buried deep within the tombs of an ancient world. To unravel the mystery of a Lost City, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.”
Rise of the Tomb Raider hits shelves on its newly announced release date of November 10, 2015 as a timed release for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Now that we’ve seen some gameplay, how do you think the game is shaping up? Tell us in the comments below.
Gamers caught a very special glimpse of what tidings this holiday season will bear as the latest teaser for Rise of the Tomb Raider hit the Internet this morning. As E3 2015 approaches, Microsoft promises the first gameplay footage to the highly anticipated sequel to 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot. But for now, we’re just going to have to settle on this incredibly, well-crafted cinematic teaser trailer. Check it out as well as the box cover art for the game after the break. Continue reading
From Attack on Titan flash mobs to wild Daleks running around the Anaheim Convention Center, cosplayers were out in full force at this year’s WonderCon. Saturday was definitely the busiest day of the con, perfect for cosplay connoisseurs to strut their stuff. Comic-Con may be the mecca for cosplayers to showoff their creativity, but don’t count out WonderCon. There were a ton of amazing cosplayers this year that were not just creative, but pretty high quality too. Check out our photo gallery from Saturday after the break. Continue reading
From Attack on Titan flash mobs to wild Daleks running around the Anaheim Convention Center, cosplayers were out in full force at this year’s WonderCon. Saturday was definitely the busiest day of the con, perfect for cosplay connoisseurs to strut their stuff. Comic-Con may be the mecca for cosplayers to showoff their creativity, but don’t count out WonderCon. There were a ton of amazing cosplayers this year that were not just creative, but pretty high quality too.
Observations that occurred:
- Her character was only announced earlier this year and already Spider-Gwen has become a widely popular character
- There were a lot fewer Attack on Titan fans in Scout Regiment garb than I am using to seeing at cons
- However, Kill la Kill has definitely blown up over the past year
- Although I didn’t get any pics of them, there were quite a lot of Korras I saw running around in the distance
- Game of Thrones and DC Comics’ characters were the most seen on Saturday, enough so that that they formed their own gatherings in the fountain plaza
- Big Hero 6, especially Honey Lemon, has also become a very beloved character to cosplay
- Aside from the Griff Tanen, I was surprised by the lack of Back to the Future cosplayer as it’s 2015
- Elsa from Frozen has become the new Slave Leia
- I didn’t see any Trekkies?
- The Walking Dead cosplayers from Reel Guise resemble their actor counterparts too eerily close. You might recall seeing the Carol on Talking Dead if you watch it
- And of course the Deadpools were Deadpooling
And from the images below, you’ll notice that some cosplayers are acting out of character. That’s because, either last year or the year before, I figured that as much fun as people have creating their outfits and becoming the characters they are also fans too. So to humanize the whole culture of cosplay I’ve been asking them to pose out of character in either wacky poses or making silly derp faces. This series of abnormal poses has created some really fun character moments for both cosplayers and fans alike.
