They certainly do. Thanks for both being courteous about this. :tmb:

The fact that the logo is not centered is making me anxious! :D

My OCD self agrees with you, but it's so cleverly composed that I think it looks very charming :D

I know! I like how the eclipse incorporates the logo, but you know... OCD are beasts! :D

James_Rutland 15-03-18 13:25

It looks gorgeous. Art style looks perfect and everything I'd want for the conclusion to the reboot trilogy.

MattTR 15-03-18 13:33

Was expecting Egyptian tombs, but this will do. The game looks gorgeous!

Alex Fly 15-03-18 13:35

Looking good! Can't wait to explore those locations. :tmb:

JoelCaesar 15-03-18 13:36

Anyone have any idea what the "puzzle" featured on - https://www.tombraider.com/en-us - will be like? I think it was a competition I heard floating around somewhere?
Guess we will find out Monday!

Daring Do 15-03-18 13:51

I really hope Quetzalcoatl will be in the game. I want Lara to fight and/or ride a dragon! It’d be a great introduction to supernatural monsters too!

I hope so too. But I'll keep my expectations low as most likely we'll get some Oni style undead Aztec warriors to keep it in style with the two previous games.
:o

RWTSB 15-03-18 13:56

Yes, I love the art and the darkness and it has a great atmospheric around Lara and the environments. :jmp::jmp::jmp:

Hoping for an epic final boss battle! Most likely in a round-shaped area and just after battling an extensive horde of human-sized on our way to the top.

RWTSB 15-03-18 13:58

I hope its enhanced for the Xbox x !!!!! :jmp::jmp::jmp::jmp::cln::cln::cln:

I mean, the reboot was originally meant to be in a similar style of Shadow of the Colossus, soooo why not make it a SotC style boss fight? :D

I can't figure out if the pyramids and the setting are Aztec or Mayan... Is there any info about this?

I just screamed a little too loud at this lol

WWETombRaider 15-03-18 14:08

Strong TRU Mexico vibes!! Honestly looks so damn pretty! :jmp:

RWTSB 15-03-18 14:10

I hope the darkness is back, she looks really injured at the end? Right? :D

NoahCrofRaider 15-03-18 14:12

I honestly love every last thing I've seen. :hug: The logo, the teaser, Lara herself, Mexico - just everything looks gorgeous and I am simply dying to play it already. I am particularly fond of the logo, it looks really cool and clever, and the name "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" sounds splendid. Very mysterious.

I have a very strong feeling now that Shadow will be a grand, beautiful, and all together strong finish to the reboot trilogy. :)

Mistrale 15-03-18 14:12

Anyone else happy for a release date they've chosen? With such behemoths as Read Dead Redemption 2, Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V coming in october-november, I think they picked a perfect release window in mid-september so SOTTR won't cross with other major releases (cough, Fallout 4) and get the most out of publicity.

I think the same. :) Also the release date lands right around my birthday, which is a nice bonus.

^ Absolutely. There doesn't seem to be anything right now that can really threaten TR (then again, it's still early). At least Square finally know that Rise being released as an exclusive in November was dumb. :p

Unless some major game announced at E3 or later for a September date....look what happened when Fallout 4 came out on the same day as Rise

Good question :ponder: I'm afraid, until they've enlightened us with more information, we won't decipher much, as there seems to be no indication whatsoever regarding the exact current location Lara's visiting, the time period of structures shown and other details, which might be informative enough to discern between both civilisations.

To me they look like the Mayan pyramid style of the Temple of Kukulcan, in Chichen Itza.

WWETombRaider 15-03-18 14:27

Wasn't Mexico hinted at as a new location in the previous games?

RWTSB 15-03-18 14:38

The last screencap when she is on the pyramid, is that a horde of people?

Hm, it looks like I didn’t miss much. That’s a shame, but I’m pretty hyped for April then.
