Tomb Raider stealth-style

I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who was a little dismayed at the killing machine that Tomb Raider Lara Croft had become in a game play trailer from Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of The Tomb Raider released earlier this year.

I can’t remember what the body count was but there was a lot of claret spilled on the ground. Well, perhaps in response to the dismay that I showed [unlikely but I’ll stick with it], Crystal Dynamics has released a new game play trailer showing the exact same sequence – Advancing Storm –  but done without any kills. Not one person was killed in the making of this game play trailer.

OK, you have to suspend disbelief sometimes with guards that don’t have peripheral vision nor wonder where an arrow suddenly appeared from [actually, it’s a video game so we should suspend belief completely], but it’s good to see that sometimes Rise of The Tomb Raider can be played without splattering blood all over the plants.

The game is out on Xbox One on November 10.
