Tomb Raider has advanced since its reboot in 2013, and we’ve seen a tougher, and grittier Lara Croft as a result. Deus Ex developer, Eidos-Montreal takes over for this important, and crucial entry. With Eidos-Montreal at the helm, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is nothing short of amazing. As each hour passes, the gameplay and systems work well together to provide a cohesive experience. The entire game is a thrill ride from open to close. While this is the end of Lara’s origin story arc, what’s been occurring during this trilogy is something that will empower her for entries to come. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a refinement of prior games, now perfected.
Today, Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal announced the content of the season pass of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the latest installment in the Deus Ex series.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a darker game to that of Deus Ex: Human Revolution where fear, hatred, and paranoia of augmented humans has reached new heights whereby segregation has returned, and is a low-point in human history once more. The game carefully dilutes this allegory of modern context into something entertaining, and while there’s not much to really gain from what transpires, it does shed some light on how these fears can lead to racial tension. Despite the lessons being taught here, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has some wonderfully slick gameplay that lets you be loud or stealthy, and lethal or non-lethal. This is where the action becomes the vehicle that carries you through this compelling story of “Naturals” vs “Augs”.
