The New Tomb Raider Launches Next Month

Shadow of the Tomb Raider will have a new game plus mode at launch and, according to an official news post, the mode will add three new skill trees (or “paths”) that each have unique rewards (such as weapons & outfits).

When starting new game plus mode, every skill, equipment upgrade, outfit, weapon and gear that Lara acquired in the previous playthrough will be made available in the NG+ playthrough.

This new mode also unlocks three new skill trees: Path of the Serpent, Path of the Jaguar, and Path of the Eagle.

Here’s a rundown of all three skill trees, per the news post:

“Path of the Serpent: Your gameplay features an emphasis on stealth and subterfuge. Take down your foes one by one, using sound and decoys to sow chaos among their ranks. Mud and camouflage lets you lash out your foes before slipping back into the shadows.

Path of the Jaguar: Your gameplay features an emphasis on hunting and combat. Strike down your enemies with an unrivaled ferocity. Your agility and close-ranged prowess tear through your enemies with knife takedowns.

Path of the Eagle: Your gameplay features an emphasis on traversal and resourcefulness. Observe your enemies from afar, scouting out to plan your next attack. Traverse with ease, attacking enemies from long range.”
