Square Enix has dropped the briefest of new gameplay trailers for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, showcasing all the various traversal moves at Lara Croft’s disposal. This includes rock climbing, grappling, rope swinging, and that nifty moved they nicked from Prince of Persia where you use a vine to run along a wall.

“Swan dive into Shadow of the Tomb Raider with a brand new set of traversal techniques”, says developer Eidos Montreal. You’ll have to correct me if I’m wrong though, but I’m not entirely sure that any of these maneuvers are actually new to Shadow of the Tomb Raider. To the best of my knowledge, all of these moves were in Rise of the Tomb Raider, perhaps with the exception of the air grapple, which I could be getting mixed up with Uncharted 4. The two series are so alike these days it can be easy to gloop them all together. I'd love to be corrected though!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 14th.

From the picture i though it was uncharted until i read it... these games aren't just similar in the treasure searching, but now in how they look...

I know i will play it, enjoy it, but from graphics perspective looks pretty much as rise of the tomb rider. I guess we will need to wait for next gen consoles for a true graphical upgrade.

These trailers actually look worse imo than Rise running on ultra. Definitely not the same amount of ambient occlusion, making for nice and crisp but unrealistic graphics.

yes, i think this is a downgrade, just look at facial expressions of the characters, even in lara´s face .

yeah portions of the environment is ok-ish... but just take one look at lara and you know its a downgrade.. I draw using pencil on occasion (mostly people/characters), and I know how much depth is added by good shadows/shading.. ambient occlusion is usually an expensive option but I always crank it up even back when I only had a GTX960
