The successful reboot of the Tomb Raider series goes with Shadow of the Tomb Raider meanwhile in the third round and Eidos Monteal puts the finishing touches on yourself. In the video released today, the developers show us the huge city Paititi.
Normally Lara tends to be alone in the tombs and ruins and also in Rise of the Tomb RaideThe largest “city” was a camp with perhaps 6 houses and 20 inhabitants. In any case, you never had the impression of walking through a lively city full of people, that will be different in part 3. Paititi is already fuller and livelier in the short passages of the video with many residents and traders, children playing and everything that goes with it.
According to the developers, the area is so large that several tombs are hiding in it.
We particularly liked the feature of hearing the voices of the residents optionally in the original dialect, which contributes greatly to the atmosphere. Of course you can also listen to everything in your chosen language if you prefer.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider - Tombs and Crypts much more difficult
Towards the end of the video, when it gets down to business, uh Tombs the new levels of difficulty are demonstrated. So you can deactivate the white color markings for climbable walls. If this feature has always been too “hand holding” and would rather rely on your own eyes, you can deactivate this in the menu. This can be the difficulty for Battles, puzzles and exploration can be set individually.
In general, the tombs in Shadow of the Tomb Raider again be a bit more complicated and challenging than in the previous one. The crypts, which were previously rather small, are now as large as challenge tombs with several rooms, puzzles and courses. In return, they also offer significantly more powerful rewards.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be released on September 14, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
