Rise of the Tomb Raider release date confirmed alongside gameplay trailer

Square Enix has confirmed Rise of the Tomb Raider will be released on November 10

During the Xbox One E3 2015 press conference, we finally found out the release date for the Rise of the Tomb Raider.

We’ll be able to follow Lara’s adventures later this year on Xbox One, it has been confirmed.

Alongside the release date, Microsoft also treated us to the first gameplay footage of the game, which gives us a quick look at what we’ll be doing in Rise of the Tomb Raider.

We find Lara limbing through a flame-lit corridor in the gameplay premiere of Rise of the Tomb Raider.

But suddenly she emerges at the top of a snow-capped mountain all wrapped up in fur as a storm rages overhead.

As she and her companion attempt to scale the mountain, she must use her grapple hooks to leap across the icy chasms, offering guide ropes to your friend.

She reaches the top, she is pushed back off the mountain by the winds, only to be rescued by the ropes.

She scales the mountain again but only to be raced with an avalanche when she finds her feet land safely once again. The icy winds and snowy landscapes look seriously impressive running on the Xbox One, as Lara leaps and spins her way across the mountain.

From the looks of the E3 demonstration, the game looks to be just as fast paced and beautifully created as the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot.

Of course, in this game Lara is looking for a lost city and is finding the sens of adventure that’s so synonymous with Tomb Raider’s star.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a timed Xbox One exclusive coming on November 10.
