The latest Tomb Raider game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is nearly here and we've got everything on the launch you need, including Shadow of the Tomb Raider Release Times, System Requirements, and Preloading Times!
We already know a fair few things about the game, and we're currently playing it now for review. We'll have that up soon, but the game's worth the wait.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider Release Times and Date
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will release on September 14, this Friday - unless you pre-order the Croft Edition, in which case you can play the game on Wednesday September 12.
As for the exact release times when it will be available to play, the Croft Edition will be available to play at 9:00 PT / 12:00 ET / 17:00 BST / 18:00 CEST. We're waiting on confirmation from Square Enix about the Friday regular base game release times and will let you know, but expect it to be the same as the Croft Edition.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider Preloading Times
Shadow of the Tomb Raider on Steam can be preloaded as of today, right now in fact! Obviously you'll need to have pre-ordered the game first. There is some debate on whether all editions of the game can be pre-loaded. The game's Steam page suggests that all versions of the game can be, but other sources say it is only the Croft Edition with the two day early access, and the regular version will be available for pre-loading on Wednesday. It's a little confusing.
