Tomb Raider 11-minute walkthrough video showcases gear, combat and brutal deaths

New, 9 comments

Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics released today an 11-minute-long video walkthrough of a familiar segment from the upcoming reboot, showcasing the game's "gear gating" mechanics and frequent brutality.

The video has everything you'd expect: An injured Lara Croft finding her way through a deadly tropical environment, bow combat with a few clever thugs and a number of navigation sections that go horribly, horribly wrong. One of those moments was first showcased at E3 last year, in which Lara is pulled through rapids, lands on the interior of a wrecked plane, and then must deploy a parachute before falling to her death. This time around, the developer shows what happens when the player's reflexes aren't up to snuff.

Tomb Raider launches on Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC March 5.
