Despite her origins in what many saw as nothing more than a scantily-clad sex symbol, the new Lara Croft earned a spot on our coveted short list of Top 5 Female Protagonists
. As such, it only seems befitting that we cover any and all Lara-related news. Today, that comes in the form of a new video for the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider
In the video, we get to see Lara facing off against man-eating creatures, traverse the environment using nothing but her strength, wits, and a few tools at her disposal, and just generally be the butt-kicking heroine that has been so well re-imagined with the franchise’s revival. Oh, and don’t worry, there are some choice shots of tomb-raiding involved as well, showcasing what looks to be some of the puzzling elements, such as a large clock-like mechanical structure through which she falls. Some interesting bottom-to-top camera flyby work weaves the different gameplay scenes and sequences together, leading to a fiery climax. Check it out for yourself below.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
launches on November 10th on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
