Rise of the Tomb Raider, the sequel to 2013's Tomb Raider reboot, comes out next week. We've been playing it for review, and today we're sharing two hours of footage from our playthrough.

The video above shows off two early areas from the game: the Prophet's Tomb and the Soviet Installation hub area. Square Enix asked us not to show off any cutscenes in these areas, so you won't get much in the way of story spoilers outside of some incidental dialogue. However, there's plenty of gameplay, including showing off the sequel's new side mission system.

Watch it for yourself above, and stay tuned for our full review of Rise of the Tomb Raider next week.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
