Gamers will soon be able to experience the next thrilling chapter in Lara Croft’s adventurous life once the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider launches. To spearhead the imminent release of Lara’s newest adventure, Square-Enix has released the official  launch trailer for the game.

The official launch trailer for Rise of the Tomb Raider showcases some new gameplay and, more importantly, offers the most comprehensive look at the game’s story thus far, whereby Lara is driven “to the ends of the earth to find the secret of immortality”.

Impressively, the entire trailer consists of actual in-game rendered content [I can attest that the game does indeed look this good on Xbox One because I am playing it at the moment] which is overlaid with a hauntingly beautiful song titled “I Shall Rise”, a song that was composed especially for the game and was written and performed by the Academy Award-nominated musician Karen O.

Rise of the Tomb Raider releases for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10th, 2015, followed by releases for PS4 and PC in 2016.
