Shadow of the Tomb Raider
WalkthroughNote on Glitches: There are some glitches in the game that might prevent you from achieving 100% Completion. I recommend, that you create savegames on a regular basis, to have something to fall back to in case something goes wrong. Especially upon reaching the point of no return.
Notes on the Walkthrough: Please be advised that this walkthrough was written for the "One with the Jungle" difficulty (hard). If you're playing on another difficulty level, you may have a slightly different experience when it comes to combat, exploration and puzzles and some of the measures I am taking may be unnecessary on easy. For example, if you choose easy combat, feel free to meet enemies head-on.
Choose 100% Completion from the menu above for guides and maps for the different regions of the game.
During the first step of my writing of this walkthrough I will focus on providing you with fast help for every issue arising. (Check out 100% Completion for by-the-region collectible guides.) Thus some bits will be written down, others will be provided as video file or screenshot... When completed, I will offer you a comprehensive text walkthrough, composite maps for all regions and screenshots for all challenge items and collectibles as well as accompanying videos. For now the walkthrough itself will focus on getting you through the story path, focusing on puzzle solutions. The region guides provided will offer map screenshots, and lists of challenges and collectibles and if applicable links back to the walkthrough.
Square Enix provided me with a review code to play the game early.
