Brisbane’s King George Square will be transformed into an immersive activation area to celebrate the launch of Shadow of the Tomb Raider tomorrow, Friday September 14.

Makeup artists will be on site to “Lara-fy guests” along with wigs, bows and arrows, transforming participants into “a fully-fledged action hero”. Complete with an industrial rock climbing wall, with a green screen twist, their endeavours will then be projected onto giant digital billboards surrounding the square.

Live DJs will be on hand throughout the day to provide music while guests try out the game. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara Croft must rappel down cliffs, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour as she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse.

The event kicks off from 9am – 6pm, Friday September 14 and Saturday September 15 at King George Square, Brisbane. Entry is free and no booking is required.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider hits Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 14. The game is also available on PC.

I cut my gaming teeth on a Commodore 64 my siblings and I found stashed under my parents bed. It was the early 90's and the strange computerised images were a novelty for a young kid living in a rural Australian town. It would be some years before I was introduced to a simple word processor powered by a Apple II my grandfather found at the dump but it didn't take much to spark a love of writing and video gaming that would continue through my life. My first "modern" console was, like most people in Australia at the time, a Sega Master System II. In those days you'd hire games from the local video store. I always loved flipping to the back of the game manual to see the cheat codes other players would scribble in the "Notes" section.
