E3 2018: Every High-Profile Video Game Confirmed So Far

14. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

Starting out a little light, it's fair to say the announcement of Lara's "final chapter" was met with nothing but "Mm? Okay".

It's simply the case that despite 2013's release being a solid enough reboot with some great game mechanics, its response was dogged by developer comments portraying Ms. Croft as a more fragile character "you'll want to protect". This only dragged further into "Rise of the Tomb Raider" - a sequel that continued to treat the label of a "Tomb Raider" as some exulted title for Lara to live up to.

Across the board it's been a weird few years for such a popular, recognisable character, though with Eidos now on development and the game's tone looking to match older instalments like The Last Revelation or Underworld, they could finally be onto a winner.
