Most of the footage seen thus far of the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider has shown Lara Croft mowing down dudes like Schwarzenegger in Commando. So it’s good to know that the act of raiding ancient tombs is not a forgotten art in Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Because Rise was built for current-gen consoles from the start, the visual uptick is significant. Dirt, sand, skeletons, and scorpions have never looked more stunning (and have me relieved I’m playing on my couch with access to clean indoor plumbing).
Rise of the Tomb Raider is released on Xbox One on Oct. 26, and for PC and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2016.
