SPOILERS: Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Leak Shows Young Lara Roaming Croft Manor

A new leak for the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider suggests players will take control of a young Lara Croft as she explores her huge family home.

Images were posted on the Tomb Raider Subreddit (looks like some lucky bugger got the game early) although they were later removed following backlash.

Of course, this is the Internet and they were quickly snapped up by various media outlets [via wccftech]. There's one at the top of this article and here are the rest:

They depict Lara scaling walls, running across rooftops, roaming the grounds, and standing on an interactive wooden ship. She's got a better back garden than me, anyway, but the big question has got to be: 'Is there a freezer?'

Surely we all remember Croft Manor from early Tomb Raider games, and how satisfying it was to lock your creepy, annoying, ever following butler in the large freezer?

If you don't, get them played now! However, this new Lara Croft story looks like we'll get to explore her family mansion like never before, so don't worry if you're a newcomer - it will still be fun.

But do the images suggest we'll start the game off as a young Lara or flashback throughout the campaign? Who knows. We won't have to wait long to find out, however.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set to release on 14 September for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Will you be playing? What do you think about these screenshots? Let us know.
