New Video For Rise of the Tomb Raider

By Joseph C, 2 years ago
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.

I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U. I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am. I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
