Tomb Raider surprised everyone when it was revealed as a reboot, going on to outsell the entire franchise months after its release. Gamers everywhere were excited to hear Crystal Dynamics was working on a new Tomb Raider title, called Rise of the Tomb Raider, although many were left scratching their heads when Microsoft revealed it would be a timed exclusive to the Xbox One. Microsoft released a new trailer just a few weeks prior to the start of E3 2015, and today, it has more of the game to show off during its press conference.

The demo started with Lara Croft lighting a flare and exploring a dark cave before wandering out into a blizzard. The explorer then braved the treacherous conditions, trudging through the deep snow and navigating unstable ledges before climbing up an icy wall. As she reached the top, the cliff became unstable and knocked her off. As she gathered her bearings, it was then time to outrun an incoming avalanche.

The big news came after the demo, with Crystal Dynamics revealing that Rise of the Tomb Raider would release on November 10.
