Today, publisher Square Enix and Eidos Montreal released a brand-new Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer showcasing the game's "treacherous traversal," and the mechanics behind how Lara survives.
As you would expect in such a trailer, there's vine swinging, mountain scaling, climbing on decaying ruins, roof slides, general grappling hook fun, and some gorgeous set pieces.
Unfortunately, the trailer is only a mere 37 seconds long, so it doesn't provide the deep dive into the game's traversal mechanics, but it does at least provide a decent look at all the different environments you'll find yourself exploring on Lara's latest adventure.
