With so much going down at E3 2018 already, one might be forgiven for forgetting about the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider game. This latest installment will see Lara Croft try to stop the Mayan apocalypse, which means the predictions about 2012 were wrong.

This iteration in the franchise brings some differences, some of which are clear to see in the trailer below. For one, Lady Croft does not look like she did in previous games, and it appears as if the emphasis is more on exploration than the gun-slinging and fighting that Rise of the Tomb Raider utilised.

Puzzle solving, as well as simply trying to survive the natural threats of the South American rainforest also look like integral parts of the gameplay for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Whether the franchise continues to be successful remains to be seen.
