Shadow of the Tomb Raider is only a week away now, so now is a great time to brush up on what’s led Lara to this point. Playing Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of the Tomb Raider would be the ideal way to do this, but unfortunately not everyone has that kind of time. Not to worry though, as Crystal Dynamics has put together a brief summary of the important story beats so far. Put bluntly, Lara’s had a rough time of it.
This version of Lara Croft has already been shipwrecked, suffered the loss her mentor, endured several terrible wounds and become a hardened killer. Oh, she also learned that much of her family life was a lie; one mustn’t forget that. Uncovering lost histories is cool and all but it hardly seems worth it.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 14.
