Following a slew of rumors and leaks, Square Enix has confirmed the next Lara Croft game with be Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and it’s releasing sooner than you would think.

The 23-second video also offers a glimpse at what appear to be Mayan temples, hinting at a Central or Souther American location.
In addition to the teaser trailer, a full game revealed is scheduled for April 27th. The teaser, release date, and full reveal date were all leaked yesterday by fans on Twitter who found the information in the Tomb Raider website’s source code. The source code indicated the reveal event on April 27th will include details on pre-order incentives and more.
