E3 2018: The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Lara Croft in the Stunning Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Reborn in 2012’s seminal Tomb Raider and rebuilt three years later in the spectacular Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara Croft is, at last, ready to become a legend. Due out September 14 for the Xbox One, Shadow of the Tomb Raider drops us back into the adventurous archaeologist’s sturdy boots as she sneaks, swings, and shoots through the jungles of Peru in an effort to outfox the nefarious paramilitary organization Trinity – and possibly save the world. Lucky for us, Lara has leveled up quite a bit since we saw her last. Now a master predator, Lara uses her…

E3 2018: The Division 2 Turns Washington D.C. Into a Watery Wasteland

Urban warfare gets a serious upgrade in The Division 2. Unveiled at E3 2018, the follow-up to Ubisoft’s tactically rich co-operative online shooter expands upon the original, featuring a larger city, more varied environments, and deeper endgame content than its popular forbear.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Forge Your Own Path

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey takes PS4 players all the way back to Ancient Greece during the 5th century BCE, when Athens and Sparta were locked in a war that would shape the course of Western civilization for millennia to come. Your role in the Peloponnesian War, however, isn’t to work in the dark to serve the light as an Assassin. Set hundreds of years before the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Odyssey instead casts you as a mercenary, free to forge your own path and build your own alliances. And that means the introduction of something new to Assassin’s Creed: the freedom to make story-altering choices.
