Lara Croft may be keeping her signature bow in place of her iconic dual pistols in Shadow of the Tomb Raider but this doesn't mean Crystal Dynamics are not paying homage to classic elements of the series. The studio hopped onto Tomb Raider Forums to clarify their position.

"Hey folks, I wanted to address a statement made in a recent interview with Official Xbox Magazine. When we confirmed that Lara would not receive her dual pistols in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we didn't choose the best language to describe our rationale behind this decision.

"Tomb Raider has a wonderful history, and we always strive to pay respectful homage to classic elements, seen through the survival action lens of our modern reboot. We're grateful for the passion that all of you bring, and can't wait to share more of the game with you."

Shadow of the Tomb Raider sees Lara Croft master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs and persevere through her darkest hour as she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse. Created by a team of veteran Tomb Raider developers at Eidos-Montreal, in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, the game will be available on September 14, 2018.
