First 27 Minutes Of ‘Rise Of The Tomb Raider’ Gameplay


Website IGN has just published the first 27 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming ‘Rise of Tomb Raider’.

In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider. Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced back in June of 2014. Darrell Gallagher, Head of Product Development and Western Studios at Square Enix stated:

“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could achieve before,”

The head of product development added:

“Our digital actors will rival CG quality, and after hearing the cry from our fans loud and clear, we will put the tombs back into Tomb Raider, all in our gritty Survival-Action style.”

Check out the first 27 minutes of IGN gameplay below:

Rise of the Tomb Raider builds upon the formula that made Tomb Raider a success, and features the return of Camilla Luddington as Lara Croft. Camilla will take character performance to new heights as Lara pushes herself beyond human limits and is confronted with what it means to become a hero. Once again, Crystal Dynamics is proud to have the award-winning author Rhianna Pratchett as a key member of the writing team, helping craft a story that delves into Lara’s inner turmoil and motivations in this critical second act of her journey.

The sequel to the 2013 reboot will not only put Lara against enemies from around the world, but also against the world itself. Lara will be able to hunt animals to craft weapons and scavenge for rare resources in densely populated ecosystems. You’ll encounter beautifully hostile environments, full of treacherous conditions and unstable landscapes that will require Lara to push her limits to the very edge.

The game developed by Crystal Dynamics will be released on November 10th for the Xbox One. The PC version will follow early 2016, while PS4 owners will have to wait until next year.
