Here’s the First 27 Minutes of Rise of the Tomb Raider

With Rise of the Tomb Raider launching next month on Xbox One and Xbox 360, IGN was able to post the first 27 minutes of the game (full of spoilers), giving you a look at the beginning of Lara’s latest adventure.

If you want to skip the opening narration and short scene, jump ahead to 1:55 for the gameplay to begin, which sees Lara climbing a mountain and learning the controls. Then, at 10:00, things go quite badly and we’re treated to a flashback.

According to Crystal Dynamics, Rise of the Tomb Raider will take 15 – 20 hours to beat, and double that to explore everything, with the Season Pass adding even more content post-launch.

For even more spoilers, be sure to check out the full Achievement list below.

Rise of the Tomb Raider arrives on PC in early 2016, with the PlayStation 4 version scheduled for late 2016.
