Shadow of the Tomb Raider Details and Release Date Leaked

Published

UPDATE: Shadow of the Tomb Raider has now been officially confirmed, alongside a teaser trailer.

The first official word on Shadow of the Tomb Raider is expected to arrive tomorrow, but the most pertinent details may have been uncovered early.

The official website for Tomb Raider has received a visual update of a crescent moon, annotated with the date and time 15/03/18, 6AM PDT, suggesting that an announcement will be coming tomorrow regarding the series. However, fans need not be in the dark, as the site’s source code reveals important information regarding the upcoming release news. A cursory analysis of the source code unearths many of the game’s important details, including its release, platforms, and story hints.

The new project is titled Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with the code stating that the next Tomb Raider game will be “the climatic finale in Lara’s origin story.” The sequel will reportedly have a September 14 release on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

These newfound detail follows a substantial leak of cover art for the game in June 2017, along with a hint from the publisher, Square Enix, in December.

Interestingly, the reveal looks to land on the day before the upcoming Tomb Raider film’s US release, so Square Enix may be trying to drive up hype for the blockbuster with the announcement.

Of course, nothing is definite with these sort of hints, but typically when release details are inscribed in code so blatantly, the information is often correct.

Be sure to revisit Nick Calandra’s review of Rise of the Tomb Raiderwhich released in November 2015.

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
