At a Square Enix event in London, Shadow of the Tomb Raider has now been officially revealed to the world. The game is the third and final entry to Lara Croft’s rebooted series.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Editions

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Steelbook, Limited Steelbook & Croft Steelbook Edition

While the digital bonuses are all nice to have, a real Tomb Raider can’t say no to a shiny Steelbook. So if you are interested in those metal cases you should definitely check out the following Editions.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Steelbook Edition (EU) – £54.99 GBP

The Steelbook Edition of Shadow of the Tomb Raider is exclusively sold in Europe and includes, in addition to the Standard Edition of the game a nice looking Steelbook as well as three art cards. Pre-orders can be placed at GAME UK either as a standalone Edition* or as a bundle* with the Lara Croft Totaku.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Limited Steelbook Edition (US) – $69.99 USD

Except for the name the Limited Steelbook Edition offers people from the United States the exact same content  as the European Steelbook Edition above. Pre-orders can be placed at Amazon.com* and of course BestBuy* for those of you who have a Gamers Club membership.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Croft Steelbook Edition (US) – $89.99 USD

The Standard Edition of the game is not enough for you? Well, how about the Croft Steelbook Edition? The Shadow of the Tomb Raider Croft Steelbook Edition gives you the best of both worlds: A physical Steelbook, three art carts and all the digital content mentioned above including the Season Pass. Sounds good? You can place your pre-order right away at Amazon.com* and BestBuy*.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Ultimate Edition

The Ultimate Edition of Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the most comprehensive version of the game, and includes the following:

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider Croft Edition
  • Lara Croft “Terrifying Tombs” Statue
  • Replica Flashlight
  • Climbing Axe Bottle Opener

The Ultimate Edition retails for $199.99 USD / £179.99 GBP and is exclusively sold through the Square Enix Store (US / EU). At the time of writing the Edition appears already as “sold out” but you can still join the online store’s waiting list. I have used it before with the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Edition and got several chances to place an order after all. So just be patient and don’t fall for those scalpers on eBay!
