Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s first images have appeared on Amazon a day ahead of the game’s official April 27 reveal. The screenshots show Lara Croft escaping extravagant set pieces, including a heavily guarded campsite, an underwater vehicle and a flooded village.

Alongside the screens, additional information has appeared on the ResetEra forum. The cover story of French gaming magazine JeuxVideo seems to promise the return of Sam and Reyes, popular characters from previous entries in the rebooted series.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s title first leaked in 2016, but information about the project has been relatively slim since then. It will be the third game in the modern Tomb Raider series. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is scheduled for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on Sept. 14.
