Lara Goes Hunting In New Tomb Raider Demo

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
If ever you find yourself stranded in hostile grounds with dwindling resources and a setting sun, recall everything that Lara Croft taught you in this new gameplay video for Rise of the Tomb Raider. You don't want to end up unprepared. In this Gamescom demo, we see a lot of stealth gameplay as Lara lurks from above, below, and within the tall grass, stalking her would-be assailants. She's grown up so fast.


A quartet of screens accompany the new demonstration. Crystal Dynamics had previously spoken of finding ways to get the story back on a globetrotting agenda like previous titles and unlike 2012's reboot. These new images show off some varied environments hinting at that.
