The reboot era is about to rise up to a whole new level starting with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, as we can see within a short video series. The more challenging traversal will definitely spice up the simple platforming and the jaw-dropping tombs' puzzles, and all this in a much more colorful, eye-catching environment.

If you don’t mind spoilers you can watch Shadow of the Tomb Raider's first 15 minutes, thanks to IGN! There's not much time left until the release date, September 14th, but this video surely won't be the last tidbit we got, since IGN will show us something new during the whole month.

Let's dive into Shadow of the Tomb Raider's music, which seems fully evolved by the end of the trilogy! Rob Bridgett, the audio and music director talks about how important is to represent Lara's darker emotions and her fight against the jungle at the same time. He and the new composer, Brian D'Oliveira were working hard on implement the South American culture faithfully in every sound.

It’s time to learn more about the Tomb Raider series biggest hub system, filled with people, side missions, and of course challenging tombs which provides us more difficulty than ever before! This untouched civilization gives us a glimpse into a small unique world. We can trade with the locals, but if that’s not what we are looking for, maybe a simple conversation with them can be as rewarding too…

During E3's week we got several gameplay videos of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. These videos here show the tutorial section, and the first major puzzle (spoiler). We can see the new traversal techniques in action, and how the new free swimming looks like. We'd better pay attention, it seems we have to face many, many hidden traps, too.

On June 12th there was an interview on Discord with Shadow of the Tomb Raider's director, Daniel Chayer-Bisson, where fans could ask several questions regarding to the game. Daniel had a lot to discuss about many subjects - new gameplay details, focus on freedom, Lara's evolving, and more. The conversation was quite long and interesting, you can find the transcript here.

The next scene takes us to the middle of the jungle, focusing on the guerrilla combat that we know so well from Rise of the Tomb Raider.
