The 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider was a pretty great game that enjoyed a solid PC port. The sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, was announced last year at E3 as a timed exclusive on Xbox One, but the game will also come to the PC sometime in early 2016. Microsoft showed off thirteen minutes of RotTR gameplay at Gamescom, and now you can watch it in HD on YouTube.
The good news is that the sequel appears to retain much of the first game's survive-by-the-skin-of-your-teeth flavor, and we also get an actual Tomb to Raid. If the Xbone version looks this good, Rise of the Tomb Raider should look fantastic on a fast gaming PC with a high-resolution display. We just wish we didn't have to wait—Microsoft, why do you torment us so?
