LOS ANGELES, CA (April 27, 2018) – Square Enix®, Eidos®- Montréal, and Crystal Dynamics® today announced they will be working with NVIDIA to develop the PC version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider™, the latest entry in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider® series.

 

NVIDIA will lend its gaming and PC development expertise to help bring the PC platform's advanced gaming features to Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This effort will help maximize the performance benefits of the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 10-series GPUs for PC gamers across the world. This continues the collaboration that began in the series’ previous title, Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Delivering the climactic conclusion to Lara Croft’s origin story in remarkable new detail, developers Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal are also partnering with the talented studio Nixxes Software for the PC version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Long-standing veterans of the Tomb Raider franchise, Nixxes Software will lead development of Lara Croft’s defining moment for PC gamers everywhere. The studio boasts outstanding experience working on past hit Square Enix titles such as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and many others.

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will become the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

Star of the critically acclaimed 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and the award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider, Camilla Luddington makes her return as Lara Croft with yet another stunning performance in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Created by a team of veteran Tomb Raider developers at Eidos-Montréal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, the game will be available for Windows PC/Steam® on September 14, 2018.
