The latest, and arguably grittiest, entry in the long-running Tomb Raider series is Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This conclusion to the reboot trilogy has Lara Croft traveling to South America to stop an apocalypse that she has inadvertently set in motion. A recent patch to Shadow of the Tomb Raider on PS5 has enhanced its already stellar presentation.
Patch 2.01 will grant 4K support to Shadow of the Tomb Raider on PS5, even when running at 60fps. This means you can now enjoy Lara’s jungle adventure in stunning high resolution without having to sacrifice your framerates.
You are going to want to experience the game in 4K, because it features some of the most beautiful environments in the series. You can expect lush yet dangerous rainforests, and villages that are bustling with people and cute llamas. There are also plenty of spectacular underwater environments to explore, where you will dodge deadly piranhas while searching for treasures.
Although the scenery is beautiful, the story is quite dark. Lara grapples with feelings of guilt as she considers her role in triggering the apocalypse. Having been hardened by her previous adventures, she is at her most ruthless and you have plenty of options to brutally eliminate enemies in your path.
The game joins a long list of PS4 titles that have been patched to take advantage of the PS5’s greater power. This includes The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, Days Gone and A Plague Tale: Innocence. Thanks to this, older games have had new life breathed into them, and the PS5’s library has never felt bare.
The Tomb Raider reboot trilogy retells the iconic story of gaming’s most recognizable heroine. It retains the most beloved core elements of the series while injecting it with new tricks and surprises to keep even the most die-hard Lara fans on their toes.
