E3 2018 Square Enix Press Conference Roundup:
• Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay trailer shown. Lara Croft tries to avert a plane crash, fails, crashes. She must now survive a dangerous jungle environment, oh and stop the Mayan apocalypse. She can shoot poisonous arrows to turn enemies on each other, she stalks her prey from the trees and bushes. She full-on knifes mercenaries in the neck now and sets them on fire. Grappling, wallrunning, full underwater swimming for new exploration to the hidden city on the island she’s stranded on. “How Lara Croft becomes the Tomb Raider she’s destined to be.” More like how she becomes a psychotic mass-murderer, but ok. 😛 — Coming September 14, 2018.
