Shadow of The Tomb Raider can’t come any sooner and Square Enix is making sure fans have their hype skyrocketing before its launch. Open world games are no strangers containing a new game plus mode, with justified reason. It gives players the opportunity to continue to explore the vastness of their game’s world while also adding the feeling that their journey has not yet ended after the main campaign.
Earlier today, the official Tomb Raider Twitter account shared a link for fans to know more about the announcement. The previous Tomb Raider entry, Rise of The Tomb Raider, did not offer new game plus but like the first installment in the survivor series, it allowed players to traverse the world, complete challenges and collect any remaining treasures. This time, however, the developers have integrated a new game plus mode in which players will be able to retain all their work from their playthrough, including skills, weapons, outfits, upgrades, and gear.

Not only does the mode function like a regular new game plus, but the developers have decided to change things up a bit. The mode offers three new paths that players can choose for their new game plus playthrough. These include the Serpent, the Jaguar, and the Eagle path. The Serpent Path provides a gameplay that emphasizes players to use stealth and submerge. The Jaguar goes more head-on and its gameplay focuses on the hunting and combat aspect. Last, but not least, the Serpent Path takes players to mind the environment by focusing on traversal and resourcefulness. Completing either path will reward the player with unique outfits and abilities that correspond to the one the player has completed.
Shadow of The Tomb Raider is less than a month away and will hit shelves September 14, 2018. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
