Rise of the Tomb Raider: become a silent killer

Rise of the Tomb Raider's new game play trailer shows off how to be silent and deadly.

Microsoft and Crystal Dynamics released new gameplay footage of Rise of the Tomb Raider during the Gamescom Xbox One segment.

This gameplay trailer reveals that Rise of the Tomb Raider gives players the ability to be creative in how they progress through the game. It expresses a variety of options such as creating sounds from a distance to lure enemies away from their post. 

The new gameplay footage mainly contains the showing of methods on how to kill people through stealth. The gameplay trailer offers a great deal of insight on the types of stealth tactics one can use to take out enemies. Yet, the gameplay trailer does show an unusual feature in which players can kill multiple enemies at the same time with the bow.

However, that does not mean one cannot go in loud and proud. Near the end of the trailer we get the chance to see a bit of explosive gunplay.

This trailer however, only gives small hints to what non-combat-based gameplay is like. The trailer shows a brief exploration of multiple different environments and gives a glimpse on what kind of environments we can expect to encounter.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will be released on Nov. 10, 2015.


I am a writer who is looking to follow my passions. I love gaming and writing, so one day I hope to write a story that everyone will one day play as a game.

    The AI seems a bit easy in this footage. I know the player is being careful and making the game look good for marketing reasons, but the game looks too easy.

    To be honest, I thought the same thing. Like that one moment she is crouching down right behind the soldier in the ruins of what looks like a wooden cabin. She is out in the open and the soldier is somewhat looking in her direction. Yet, does not notice her at all even as she throws a bottle. It made me wonder if the AI was dumb or not

    That creed jump kill though. I was pretty weirded out by the double kill with the bow – something about it just didn't feel right... but all the stealth knifings were pretty sweet!

    Oh my god I was so tempted to name this article Rise of the Tomb Raider: Assassin Creed Style. I felt like I was watching a trailer for assassin's creed until she got to the point she pulled out all her guns
