Rise of the Tomb Raider at E3 2015 will fill you in on all the latest news emerging at this years E3. As you might be aware several members of the Tomb Raider community (mainly webmasters) have been invited by Microsoft and Square Enix to attend the event and to get a closer look at Rise of the Tomb Raider.

What we knew before

Rise of the Tomb Raider, often shortened to RotTR or simply Rise, will come exclusively to Xbox. It's been developed for Xbox One and - by a third party - ported to Xbox 360, to allow a wider range of fans to play the game.

The game is scheduled to come out somewhere around the holiday season 2015.

Lara's curiosity brings her to Siberia, to the Lost City of Kitezh, in search of immortality, but a shady organization called Trinity is also interested in the place and its secrets.

You will find more details within the actual Rise of the Tomb Raider article.

Square Enix Press Conference

At the Square Enix Press Conference Brian Horton presented the Rise of the Tomb Raider: Bringing Lara to Life video in which the developers talk about the detail in which Lara and her clothes are seen in the game.


They showcased two more in-game demos behind closed doors.

Siberian Wilderness

The first demo continues shortly after the demo shown in the press conference ended, with Lara still being in a snowy environment. It shows Lara making her way through snow, gathering basic materials for crafting, making fire at and rebuilding an abandoned base camp, fighting enemies (partially with stealth by attacking them from trees above, by shooting Poison Arrows, by distracting them and by throwing burning canisters. In the end Lara is attacked by the bear, an enemy still too powerful for her at this point.
