Crystal Dynamics delivered a fantastic teaser for Rise of the Tomb Raider during Microsoft’s press conference earlier today. They also delivered news that the game would be released the same day as another highly anticipated game (but more on that later). For now, let’s get to the game footage.
The teaser began with a young Lara and her companion trekking through a small caver with nothing but the light of a flare to guide them. It’s not long before reach the mountain side on their search for a lost city.
As she latches on to a sheet of ice using her ice axes, she makes her way to the top of the cliff in true tomb raider fashion. Unfortunately, once on top of the cliff she is pushed off dangling only by her rope. She catches a zipline using her ice axe when an avalanche begins. She falls, slides down a chute and runs along a mountainside as it crumbles before ultimately falling to the snow before the scene ends.
The footage finishes with more gameplay including Lara fighting a bear.
Some of you may have a bit of a difficult decision to make because the release date for this title just so happens to be the same as Bethesda’s Fallout 4, November 10, 2015. For many it may be an easy decision, for the rest… sorry. Rise of the Tomb Raider is also available for pre-order on Amazon now.
