The next Tomb Raider game, made by Square Enix, is continuing the journey of Lara Croft, now thru South America and Mesoamerica. Not much has been said about this game besides some new improvements and some story development. The main improvement is that the trail “white paint” that you’d usually follow to keep you on track, won’t be there anymore. Enix has decided to make the game easier to follow, without making you upset at losing the exploration aspect, using light! They’ve made it so if something is important the light around it and the light on it will look and shine differently. Also, when you are traveling, the light shining through the jungle trees will be different. This is an excellent improvement on Square Enix’s part. Furthermore, Square Enix decided that the main story element will be that Lara Croft will have to dive deep into the dark jungles of South-Mesoamerica and persevere through the temples in order to save the world from a Mayan apocalypse and become the Tomb Raider she was meant to be.

When Square Enix first said that they’d make another Tomb Raider game, I wasn’t too excited for it. Having a third action-survival game in the same series, seemed too much like a cash grab or a fake rumor, though during their new “Shadow of the Cute Raider,” trailer, I realized this might yet be a good game. Though when I initially heard about the first Tomb Raider game, I didn’t really care for it. It was just another game that was available, but when I played it, man it was fun!

Microsoft has released a special, jungle like Xbox One X. Even though it’s just for looks, and that you won’t be able to buy one, it was still a cool design idea from Microsoft, and might be the coolest looking one yet. Though it is being sold for charity, so something better than a design will come from this.

Newly available from Her Universe and Hot Topic, we have a Shadow of the Tomb Raider fashion line. This is Her Universe’s first video game fashion line, inspired by Lara Croft. In this line there’s a puffer jacket and a cosplay jacket for the colder days, and a sports bra with matching leggings for the hotter days, or for some workout time. This fashion line is available at Hot Topic, with a gift! If you purchase $20 of Tomb Raider gear, you can get the White Shadow Band Resource Pack in-game code. These stylish outfits are online exclusives, so go head to the Hot Topic website and grab these today!
I have very high expectations for this game. I can’t wait to see all the improvements and how it compares to the other games in its series, and the other games of its type! The release date is said to be September 14, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and Windows. Square Enix has released some specs for the game, meaning PC gamers with an Intel I3 3220 CPU can play this game with some other requirements. If you own an Xbox One X, you’re also in luck! The game will run at its delicious 4K resolution, but also features a 1080p 60 FPS mode. If only four days could come faster.
