Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Official Art Book Review

If you’ve been a fan of the new Tomb Raider video game trilogy, and want to learn more about some of the thought processes that went into crafting the look and feel of the third game in the franchise, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, then you should look into Titan Books’ latest video game art book. Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Official Art Book is now available, and it’s loaded with insightful concept art and behind-the-scenes anecdotes that paint a clear picture of the game’s development from start to finish.

The book consists of 192 thick, glossy pages, which break down the game’s development an art design over three major sections. The first section is all about the game’s characters, obviously starting with Lara Croft herself. Each of the game’s characters are then detailed in terms of their designs from concept to final production, as well as insights being written about each one to explain why a character ended up looking a certain way. The next chapter focuses on two of the main artifacts that Lara is seeking out in Shadow, while the final chapter takes a deep dive into the locations featured in the game.

The art book truly is a great companion to the game itself, as well as the entire rebooted Tomb Raider video game franchise, so check out the full review below to get a better idea of the type of content you’ll come across in this book.
