Video game vixen Lara Croft will continue her progression from petite explorer to buxom badass in Rise of the Tomb Raider next year. Announced during Microsoft’s E3 media briefing, the debut trailer showed a distressed protagonist talking to a shrink, who emphatically informed her that “people become who they are meant to be”. It’s a bit like when we were always destined to stay up all night writing about video games, only cooler in the Crystal Dynamics game’s case.

There’s no official word on platforms at the time of typing, but it’s safe to assume that it will be coming to the PlayStation 4 in addition to Microsoft’s next-gen machine. The first footage shows the heroine using her iconic bow, battling with grizzly bears, and clambering through tropical climes. Are you excited to see the legendary star make a comeback so soon? Check out the trailer and let us know in the comments section below.
