“We had an excellent partnership with NVIDIA on Rise of the Tomb Raider,” said Rich Briggs, Senior Brand Director at Crystal Dynamics. “Now, thanks to NVIDIA RTX technology, we are pleased to announce that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will, quite fittingly, feature real-time shadows.”
“An iconic pop culture figure like Lara Croft deserves the cinematic treatment that ray tracing can deliver,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at NVIDIA. “As soon as we first experienced NVIDIA RTX in our lab, it was clear that Square Enix, Eidos-Montréal, and Crystal Dynamics would be ideal partners to debut it with.”
