Rise of the Tomb Raider gets new trailer prior to E3 2015

Microsoft has released a new trailer for its timed-exclusive, Rise of the Tomb Raider, weeks prior to its assumed E3 showing.


Microsoft has released a new trailer for Rise of the Tomb Raider today that offers a glimpse of Lara Croft’s drive and motivation in this new adventure.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara will visit some of the most treacherous and remote regions of the world, although she’ll have help from some of the most well-known explorers around. Her experiences in Rise of the Tomb Raider help her embrace her destiny as the Tomb Raider.

In addition to today’s trailer, Xbox and Crystal Dynamics have revealed the box art for Rise of the Tomb Raider, which you can view below the trailer.

It's still a little surreal to see Microsoft publishing Rise of the Tomb Raider as a timed exclusive, but considering how well the Tomb Raider reboot did for both Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, we're not completely surprised. Microsoft needs more exclusives to help sell the Xbox One, and having a new Tomb Raider game as a timed exclusive should help, as long as they know how to market it.

      Cool trailer, but I'm trying to determine if she's wearing shorts or super tight wrinkle free pants that match her skin color...anyone? Even if pants, how much thermal insulation could be in there?

        Are you watching on your phone or something? They were very clearly pants. As for how warm they are, well she could always pee herself in an emergency.

        super tight wrinkle free Dickies obviously. Absolutely zero thermal insulation.

      I sure hope it looks good. I'm sad that it's going to be an XB1 exclusive, and designed for a machine significantly weaker than my PC, and as a result, end up not looking as good as its predecessor.

      Sweet, thank goodness it's a timed exclusive.
