“Rise of the Tomb Raider" will launch exclusively for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime during the holiday season in 2015, and new screenshots for the action-adventure game were released on Monday by All Games Beta.
The screenshots confirmed some information we already knew -- protagonists Lara Croft will face the rough terrains and frigid temperatures of Siberia as she faces an array of new challenges. “Rise of the Tomb Raider” will also feature a day and night system, as well as dynamic weather. The weather will affect the type of animals available for Lara to hunt.
“Rise of the Tomb Raider” will take place after the events of 2013’s “Tomb Raider” reboot, when series protagonist Lara Croft is somewhat depressed and traumatized. After coming across an immortal being in the reboot, Laura spent a year researching the concept of eternal life to comprehend the encounter. This leads her on a search to find Kitezh, a mythical city lost in Russia’s Siberian tundra.
