It's that time of year again. E3 is about to start and Shadow of the Tomb Raider is finally visible on the horizon! If you've been watching the official Tomb Raider social media accounts, you've probably seen these 30-second teaser spots featuring some of the game's developers offering glimpses of the story, mocap, level and puzzle design, lighting, sound, user interface, and more.
