Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be launching worldwide in September. Though that’s still a fair shot away, the folks at Eidos Montreal and Crystal Dynamics have already completed development. Indeed, the game has gone gold and is now ready for mass production. Perhaps to commemorate this, publisher Square Enix has revealed a new walkthrough video for the game, showcasing the Hidden City of Paititi.
Paititi is described as the largest hub in a Tomb Raider game. As such, it won’t be short of side quests to engage in and ancient tombs to explore. There is also a marketplace, where Lara can barter with the indigenous people for new outfits, weapons, and materials. If you’d like an immersive experience, you can even set so that the these people speak to you in their native language.
The video shows off just how bustling and big the world is. Aside from the environment and crowd, it also gives you an idea of how side quests will look like. We also get to see Lara doing some precarious cliff climbing, as well as a sneak peek of one of the challenge tombs in the game.
A little while after this video went up, Eidos Montreal announced that the game has gone gold. As the game goes over to manufacturing, we can expect the team to begin polishing the game up for a Day 1 patch. Also, there will likely be DLC content in the works similar to Rise of the Tomb Raider’s post-launch releases. If anything, it looks like the team has a good head start on bringing those out.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide on 14th September 2018.
