Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have released the 11-minute demo of Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration showcased in their theater at Gamescom 2016 in Germany last week.

The video begins with the “Thin Ice” from the main campaign, as Lara fights to escape Trinity in a frozen Siberian wasteland. Then, we see “Blood Ties,” which features over an hour of new single-player story as Lara’s uncle challenges her ownership of Croft Manor. Lara, determined to prove she’s the rightful heir, must confront the secrets of her past. Finally, the video ends with a look at the new “Lara’s Nightmare” combat mode, in which Lara must protect the Croft Manor from hordes of the undead.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration is due out for PlayStation 4 on October 11. In addition to the above, it includes PlayStation VR support, a co-op Endurance mode, an “Extreme Survivor” difficulty mode, five classic Lara skins, an outfit and weapon inspired by Tomb Raider III, and all previously released downloadable content. Xbox One and PC Season Pass owners will also get the new content.
