This PC performance article focuses on Shadow of the Tomb Raider frame rates and will provide us with a graphics card frame rate guide for when the game launches on September 14th. This will be considered an evolving editorial article, that we will continue to update as more Shadow of the Tomb Raider frame rate data is published around the net, as we complete our internal hardware analysis on the game, but especially as you submit your FPS results to Game-Debate.
Only 14 days left until its release and we now have the official Shadow of The Tomb Raider system requirements. Over the past week or so we have seen some interesting early system performance results  for Shadow of The Tomb Raider on the incoming Nvidia RTX 20 Series but we now have the official Shadow of the Tomb Raider system requirements. The official requirements are pretty similar to our predicted PC system specs so lets see how well you can run SOTTR.
It’s early days for Nvidia’s newly announced GeForce RTX 2080 Ti but on the Gamescom 2018 show floor, the first gameplay demonstrations are already taking place. One of these is for the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the finale to the Tomb Raider origins trilogy.
The first few moments of any new game always feel a little special, but if you’re fine with that all being ruined then Eidos Montreal has released uncut footage taken from the entire first 15 minutes of the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Needless to say, SPOILER WARNING.
Square Enix has dropped the briefest of new gameplay trailers for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, showcasing all the various traversal moves at Lara Croft’s disposal. This includes rock climbing, grappling, rope swinging, and that nifty moved they nicked from Prince of Persia where you use a vine to run along a wall.
After a bit of a muted showcase at E3 2018, Eidos Montreal and Square Enix are back with another, arguably stronger look at the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Exploration is the focus of this new 10-minute gameplay trailer, showing off Paititi, a civilization still untouched by modern culture.
Square Enix got its E3 2018 conference with a fairly deep look at the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider. An entire gameplay sequence was shown, demonstrating how Lara Croft has made quite the about turn from tree-hugging adventurer to absolute psycho. She’s a real dab hand at stabbing chaps now, ideally after she’s smothered herself in jungle mud and emerged from the gloom, Arnie style.
Unsurprisingly, Square Enix has announced that it’ll be partnering with Nvidia for the PC release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, a familiar refrain in regards to Square Enix’s more graphically intensive titles.
Right on cue, Square Enix has revealed an all-new trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, along with a whole heap of new info. Sadly, the trailer is entirely cinematics. Boo. Hiss. We've still got those screenshots to pore over, but sadly no in-game footage. This is all about setting up the narrative, which is pitted as the concluding part of the Tomb Raider origins trilogy.
The official site for Tomb Raider has gone dark, teasing a reveal that’s due to take place tomorrow, March 15th, at 6am PDT.
To the surprise of literally nobody, Square Enix has confirmed that development of a new Tomb Raider title is underway. Unlike previous games in the series though, Square Enix is taking a different tack with this one - there will be a very short window between the announcement of the new Tomb Raider game and its release. In short, 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Tomb Raider.
