Ready your bow… Last week saw the return of Lara Croft, in the Xbox One exclusive ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’. Already taking fans by storm, the game follows Lara on her first adventure as she is forged into a true survivor. Obsessed by a secret that she has uncovered, Lara is now threatened by a shadow organization intent on killing her for what she knows. She is pushed to her physical and mental limits as she seeks the truth buried deep within the tombs of an ancient world. To unravel the mystery of a Lost City, 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 will have you on the edge of your seat with plenty of close calls, death-defying leaps and exciting escape sequences. You must become resourceful, crafting as much as exploring to ensure Lara stays alive. Lara battles not only enemies from around the world but the world itself, in beautifully hostile environments that will push Lara’s limits.
The extra tombs and caves will keep you plenty busy around the main storyline, and are one of the most exciting improvement to the franchise. Tombs are bigger and better than ever; with ancient, awe-inspiring spaces, complex labyrinths and puzzles galore for you to work your way through.
As you progress through the game you can upgrade Lara’s skills and configure your gear, weapons and ammo to suit to your playstyle. Plus, with an improved stealth mode, you can switch between going into combat all guns a-blazing, and more calculating methods such as using the environment to your full advantage.
