Shadow of the Tomb Raider Will Have a New Game Plus

By Sam Quirke,
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is now less than a month away, but there's still more for us to learn. The third game since the reboot will introduce New Game Plus for the first time, and we also get a look at Lara's weaponry in the below video.

New Game Plus works like most other titles with the feature; you'll start the game over with your skills, equipment, unlocks, weapons and outfits intact from your last completed save. In Lara's case you will also get access to three unique skill paths in which you will unlock further abilities depending on your play style. The Serpent Path focuses on stealth, The Jaguar Path is all about hunting and combat, while the Eagle Path is suited to a player keen on exploration and resourcefulness. Although these additional skills weren't detailed, names like "Jaguar Rage" and "Eagle Sight" have emerged to give us a flavour of what to expect.

Most importantly, this might balance off the perceived difficulty of the trophy list which we speculated on after our interview with lead game designer Heath Smith. Perhaps a potential perma-death related trophy could be softened by attempting it in a second pass at the game?

We'll find out exactly how it all works soon — Shadow of the Tomb Raider arrives on PlayStation 4 on September 14th.

We've got the full list of Shadow of the Tomb Raider trophies - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
