Lara braves The Forge with a pal in Shadow Of The Tomb Raider’s first DLC

Available next month separately or as part of the season pass, it's the first of seven monthly releases of new tombs to raid in new…

Shadow of the Tomb Raider challenge tombs: where to find the challenge tombs, how to solve the puzzles

Our guide will take you through where to find the challenge tombs in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and how to solve the puzzles found…

The Tuesday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS Video Department

Have you been checking in on the Rock Paper Shotgun Video Department? It has its very own video corner on the site where everything is collected. But in case you missed it, I'm going to round up our moving picture delights from the last week. From life-consuming RPGs to fish prisons, we covered a lot of bases.

How to save Tomb Raider: A proposal for where the series should go next

With Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Lara has now completed another trilogy, probably by falling through its roof and shooting it in the face. This would be the second set of three games from Crystal Dynamics (with help from other parts of Eidos), following on from the six titles created by Core (if you don't count the Game Boy ones). She's twelve main games old,…

Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics performance: How to get the best settings for your PC

The latest Tomb Raider reboot games have always been big technical showcases on PC, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider is no exception. After a slightly rocky pre-release build that's thankfully been ironed out in time for today's release (have a read of John's newly updated Shadow of the Tomb Raider review if you're still unsure), this is easily one of the most demanding games…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider review

Update: We've made some substantial changes to this review to reflect the dramatic technical improvements made by the day one patch released on the 12th. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider is, we're told, the final entry in the latest trilogy of Lara Croft adventures. And is, I'm pleased to report, by far the best of the three. It remains a muddled affair, never quite sure…

Video: Perilous platforming and jaguar extermination makes Shadow of the Tomb Raider classic Croft

I often wonder what freakish individuals were enlisted into focus testing to give publishers the idea that everyone wants things mean and moody. Had they invited me, there would be more games set in cheery pubs where you win by having the best bit of nostalgia about early noughties television. Also, the health system would be built entirely on the consumption of floral gums. There…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider will let you turn off its hints

If you wish to turn off all the objective markers, glowing item highlights, and even guiding paint splashes in Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, you will be able to. Leap and puzzle without any obvious assistance, if you please. Or if you find those handy and want all the help you can get, hey, the game will let you do that too. The game's makers…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider has a hub city, granular difficulty and a certain complex

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the climbing stuff and stealing stuff and pushing giant stone cogwheels water, here comes another shark with 'EXTREMELY SERIOUS ORIGIN STORY' carved into its hide. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider threatens to complete a birth-of-badass-Lara tale we've already heard twice over, but there's good news for those of us for whom there was never…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider gameplay shows Lara’s Predator-esque junglemurders

When Eidos Montreal say that Shadow Of The Tomb Raider takes us through the journey where Lara Croft "becomes the Tomb Raider that she's destined to be", I think they mean becoming a stone-cold mass murderer. They blasted a few minutes of gameplay footage during Square Enix's E3 press conference today, and it shows Lara's stealthy murdermoves from camouflaging herself in mud to firing rope…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider is fighting the apocalypse

Lara Croft will be sticking her toffee nose into the Mayans' business to prevent their apocalypse in Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Square Enix confirmed today as they started showing more of the game. Typical colonial invaders: thinking they know best, that they can and should solve everything. Hey, pal, that's not your apocalypse. Butt out. And don't think I didn't notice you slip that…

Deus Ex is “waiting its turn” for a new game

The CEO of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, has spoken out about the future of Deus Ex. At the start of this year, Eurogamer reported that we shouldn't expect a new Deus Ex game anytime soon - and they're right, though we should get one eventually. It simply isn't Deus Ex's turn yet, with the studio first focusing on other projects such as the next Tomb…

Square Enix and Marvel, avenging in a tree

Yesterday, Square Enix announced that they'd be announcing something today, as that's how marketing works now. Yesterday, Marvel also announced that they'd be announcing something today, but no-one knew if they meant a film, a comic, a TV series or that Ike Perlmutter had ordered that Captain America was henceforth to be depicted as an outspoken climate change denier. Different companies announce different stuff on…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Criminal Past story DLC announced

Adam Jensen is off to the cyberslammer next month in the second story DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site]. Square Enix yesterday announced the 'Criminal Past' DLC, a prequel mission which will send Adman undercover into a prison for robomen. That's why they call it Criminal Past, see: it's set in the past (of the future), and there are criminals. The marketing droids…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s pre-order mission now free

The pre-order virtuaguff of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site], which includes an extra story mission, is now free for all players. A patch on Friday whopped it in. The 'Desperate Measures' mission isn't big but it does poke into that train station bombing which drives a fair chunk of the game so, er, good that it's finally available to everyone. This blob of freebies…
