Square Enix recently announced Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this year, Shadow of the Tomb Raider completes Lara Croft’s journey.

While Shadow of the Tomb Raider won’t be officially unveiled until April 27, Square Enis has released a teaser trailer (below). The Tomb Raider website currently features a countdown to the reveal event and an online puzzle.

The trailer only goes for 20-seconds and is entirely pre-rendered. It shows Lara doing what she does best in a rainforest, cave and atop massive pyramids. 

It appears from the footage released thus far that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be set in South America, amongst Mayan ruins. In fact, the puzzle featured on the Shadow of the Tomb Raider website requires you to match ‘Mayan’ glyphs. 

The puzzle is a cumulative effort and as the community solve the puzzle, more clues about Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be unlocked.

Residents of the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and France will also have a chance to win a trip for two to one of three Shadow of the Tomb Raider events in Montreal, LA and London.

Winners will be able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, chat with the developers and enjoy food and drink. A new puzzle will be added to the website every Monday.
