Game information said:

Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. 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 ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

KEY FEATURES

- Survive and Thrive In the Deadliest Place on Earth: Master an unforgiving jungle setting in order to survive. Explore underwater environments filled with crevasses and deep tunnel systems.
- Become One With the Jungle: Outgunned and outnumbered, Lara must use the jungle to her advantage. Strike suddenly and disappear like a jaguar, use mud as camouflage, and instill fear in enemies to sow chaos.
- Discover Dark and Brutal Tombs: Tombs are more terrifying than ever before, requiring advanced traversal techniques to reach them, and once inside they are filled with deadly puzzles.
- Uncover Living History: Discover a hidden city and explore the biggest hub space ever found in a Tomb Raider game.

I think this game got lost in the hype of other big fall games, but seems to be great nonetheless. Probably not gonna play it immediately, but surely sometime in the fall/winter.

I'm loving the game, really enjoyable, worse thing I did was start this before finishing Spider-Man because now I am stuck trying to juggle the two of them :p

It's a really gripping game, once I get started just want to keep playing, I'm loving how refined everything else and it's clearly the best of the 3 in the technical departments.

Canceled by Steam pre-order and went with the XBX. Gotta experience this on 4K (also I'll buy Odyssey on Steam because the XBL version is $20 expensive than the PC one for some reason).

DX 12 vs DX 11 is really doing some work here for both GPU manufacturers this time. I'm a bit surprised tbh.
Got the "normal" Steam version though, so it's Friday till I can test myself. The previous game runs beautifully around 80-110 FPS on my setup. Really hope this one performs just as well.

I tend to buy my Xbox points from CDKeys to make that difference much smaller. You don't save lots, but enough to make a difference.

i wish square would say when the steam croft edition unlocks..
Someone in the Steam Community hub said he was told 5pm PT by Squeenix's Twitter account, but I had a look at the tweets/replies section of both Squeenix accounts as well as the official Tomb Raider account and saw no such tweet.

Edit: Err, AM, I mean, not PM.

I live in Turkey mate, buying anything with American dollar or English pound would be financial suicide.

Turkish store is usually the cheapest one out there. But some games tend to be more expensive, although they are still cheaper compared to the other stores. For example, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is $32 but Red Dead Redemption 2 is $57, and Darksiders III is $22.
