Maybe Peeping Toms are actually blessings. A Redditor has spotted what seems to be someone working on a Tomb Raider sequel in a train in Montreal. It appears the next project will be named Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and it’s bound to get dark.
The newest Tomb Raider series of games is a re-imagining of the 20-year-long adventures of Lara Croft. However this time, players will be exploring her origins as the Tomb Raider. Players soon found out her motivation to search for artifacts comes from her father, another archaeologist. And it appears Lara Croft has a penchant for searching super powerful relics.
Tomb Raider Sequel: Raiders on a Train
A Redditor by the name of Tripleh280 stumbled upon this bit of info after seeing someone working on it on a laptop inside a Montreal public transit. While this behavior is generally frowned upon, it appears the person is actually working on a presentation named Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
According to Tripleh280, the title – as seen on the upper-right corner of the image – confirms it’s a Tomb Raider game. While there’s no confirmation from Eidos, according to Kotaku, the name of the game matches with their sources.
However, it’s not very unlikely to meet yet another person working on the industry in Montreal. The place is home to a lot of gaming studios such as Ubisoft. However, it also appears Eidos Montreal is busy formulating a new hit with the series.
It can be remembered that Crystal Dynamics from California developed the first Tomb Raider titles. These are Tomb Raider in 2013 and Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015. The games were critically-acclaimed due to its realistic graphics and survival mechanics. The new titles make use of an easy-to-use interface that doesn’t interfere with the environment. The minimalistic take on HUDs made the game more of a movie-esque experience than an actual video game.
If Eidos is indeed behind everything, it appears the game will have Deus Ex treatment. Regardless, it appears Lara Croft is in for a rough ride.
