I prefer Season of the Witch over Spore.

But spore was kinda forgettable. Though it now helps to compare how much has Phillip Sevy has evolved as an artist in the last 3 years. You can see that it and Inferno are drawn by the same person, but his art is so much better and consistent now.

Contrary to Ashley A. Wood, which decided she would forget how to draw for Tomb Raider alone, for some reason… -_-

Lara is 23 in Shadow, didn’t they say it takes place in 2016?

They said that +/- one year has passed between each reboot game, so SotTR is actually set in 2015 (which if reboot Lara was born in 1992, would make her 23 years old in that game).

But of course, that newspaper in RotTR says that game is set in 2015, and Inferno #002 says Nadija discovered the temple in 2017. Yet according to the developers that can't be the case, because of the 1-year between each game and Lara being 23 in SotTR, but the newspaper setting RotTR in 2015 and Inferno being set in either 2017 or 2018 and leading to SotTR says otherwise, and this is just a unneeded mess of a chronology.

The only thing in concrete that we have is that reboot chronology is:
  • Tomb Raider: The beginning
  • Tomb Raider
  • Ten Thousand Immortals
  • Season of the Witch
  • Secrets and Lies
  • Queen of Serpents
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Spore
  • Choice and Sacrifice
  • Survivor's Cruzade
  • Inferno
  • Path to the Apocalipse
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I didn't say it was by much . It's been a while since I've read those arcs, but I just felt the magic mushroom cult was a bit too silly. Also, it didn't feel connected to anything. At least SotW felt connected to Yamatai. I'm not familiar with the writer at all, but I got the impression at the time that people were happy with the choice. So I was kinda disappointed with the results. Choice and Sacrifice was much better.

Yeah, it's fascinating to see.

Looks like Lara's going on a DMT trip next issue.

Rise takes place in late 2015. In the time leading up to Shadow Lara was on hiatus for a some amount of months and a whole year making Shadow take place in late 2017 because of El Dia De Las Muertos.

No, although it would make sense for SotTR to be start on late 2017 or 2018, CD and EM have confirmed that there's +/- a one year gap between each game, so Lara is 23 in SotTR, with it taking place on 2015.

Which makes no sense because of both the newspaper in RotTR and now the info from Inferno, but who knows anymore…

This would be much easier if they didn't say anything about Lara's age and the time passed between games...

Regardless of what the devs have said or not... Now I think it's fine to assume, at this point, SotTR takes place in 2018 unless there are dates in the game contradicting otherwise.
