The Xbox YouTube account has just posted 13 minutes of footage from Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Gamescom demo. Of course, as we now know, Rise of the Tomb Raider isn’t just coming to Xbox. Lara’s enduring struggle to not be bashed or slashed into oblivion will arrive on PC early next year.
The footage will feel familiar to any who played the last Tomb Raider, albeit this time with an actual tomb. My favourite moment is when, on looking at a painting, Lara’s Greek rating is increased by +15. That is not how learning Greek works.
Last week, during Microsoft’s Gamescom presentation, we saw a more action-oriented slice of the game. Those poor, poor throats.
