Watch 12 minutes of Rise of the Tomb Raider gameplay, with actual tombs this time
Unlike the previous videos that have been released for Square Enix’s “Rise of the Tomb Raider,” this gameplay video has actual tombs in it. The video was released by Square Enix earlier this afternoon, following the game’s popular showing at this year’s Gamescom event.
The developers describe the video stating, “Setting the stage for her Siberian adventure, Lara Croft travels to Syria, following a thread that she believes leads to an immortal Prophet’s Tomb. Filled with deadly traps, puzzles, and a ruthless shadow organization only steps behind, Lara must use all her skills to survive.”
The team goes on to say, “The Prophet’s Tomb is the first of many tombs in Rise of the Tomb Raider, built to be awe-inspiring deadly spaces, celebrating nostalgic elements through a modern lens.”
“Rise of the Tomb Raider” is set to release on November 10th but there are a few DLC bonuses if you pre-order the game early. If you pre-order from authorized retailers, like Amazon, you can get the Hope’s Bastion Outfit. That will have Lara in ancient Byzantine Era chainmail, armor, and tough leather that she has gathered from hidden tombs. This outfit also gives Lara more powerful charged shots with the bow. Players will also get the Wreckoner Battle Axe Skin, which is an ancient weapon from the Byzantine Empire. The axe later becomes one of Lara’s most trusted and powerful weapons in melee combat. You will also get the Juggernaut Journal Pages, which include a “Juggernaut” foil card that gives Lara additional armor with each kill for a limited period of time. This includes four other cards that alter the gameplay experience.
You can checkout all of the DLC details and more information on the game on the amazon.com product page. The game will be an Xbox exclusive for the first year.
