These past few days have been busy for the community! Here's a summary of both events that took place this week.
Tomb Raider Suite Composer Buffet Reception - April 28th
This event has been in the works since the Kickstarter for the Tomb Raider Suite ended last May. The team announced that they'd be holding two special events (one in the US and the other in the UK) to celebrate the remastered album. The evening brought together die-hard fans of the series to enjoy an evening of live music, raffles and prizes, and a chance to talk to some special guests, including Shelley Blonde, Meagan Marie, and a real-life Winston!
Fans met up at the Eight Bells Pub and walked in to the courtyard of the iconic Hatfield House (Known best as the filming location of the first two Tomb Raider Films as Lara's manor, and the model for her humble abode in Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld)
Guests got the chance to chat with fellow fans in the gorgeous setting of a ballroom that looked like it was plucked right out of Lara's home. An all-female orchestra performed 45 minutes worth of material from the Tomb Raider Suite with songs hand-picked for them by Nathan McCree.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Announcement Event (England and Los Angeles) - April 26th
Fans were invited to the Shadow of the Tomb Raider announcement party. The interior of the building could definitely be considered the Tomb Raider cosplayer's ultimate dream, with the whole space decorated to replicate a mysterious cave in the jungle. Ambient lighting, plants, and effects provided the perfect space for cosplayers to catch some amazing shots.
The first trailer was revealed to the audience, and the audience had the chance to play a demo for the game. Other things that were announced include the different editions of the game will have upon release.
Standard edition (digital or physical) 59.99$
Croft edition 89.99$
Ultimate edition 199.99$ (Includes a bottle opener shaped like Lara's axe, a stylized flashlight, and a statue starring Lara in her new outfit, vaulting over some stones in a jungle scene) Both Ultimate and Croft versions include a season pass for future DLC as well as a ton of new exclusive content.
All versions of the game will be available on PS4, PC, and Xbox.
