Why Shadow of the Tomb Raider is THE single-player game to watch in 2018

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 hugely from its predecessors, with familiar movement, puzzles, combat, and progression. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as Rise of the Tomb Raider received stellar reviews back in 2015. If you enjoyed the previous trilogy entries, you'll likely find something to love here.

However, with small but significant evolutions across the board, the game is shaping up as the best Tomb Raider so far. After spending five hours in-game since the reveal, we recommend keeping it on your radar this September.
