Rise of the Tomb Raider gameplay looks like Microsoft's answer to Uncharted 4

Crystal Dynamic demonstrated Rise of the Tomb Raider at Microsoft's E3 2015 event. In the footage, heroine Lara Croft and an ally climb a mountain amidst a snowstorm. Multiple times in the demo she falls from a ledge only to catch herself at the last possible moment. Music and sound effects swell for maximum drama. There's an obvious emphasis on exploration and adventure, rather than shooting.

Later in the demo, Croft builds a camp, hacks her way through a wall, and navigates huge environments. The game looks as much like Sony's Uncharted series as it does its predecessor. The sequel to the recent Tomb Raider reboot will be exclusive to Xbox One for an undisclosed amount of time.
