Earlier this evening Crystal Dynamics took to the stage to reveal the first gameplay footage of its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The demonstration showed Lara Croft trapped in a capitulating cave while being chased by a shady figure.

Clearly Crystal Dynamics has been playing a whole ton of Uncharted, but there's plenty of survival horror mixed into this stunning debut. The whole sequence is a little bit linear, but it's all the more cinematic because of that.

The only disappointing trait is that far-away 2012 release date. Check out the footage after the jump.
