Crystal Dynamics has clearly been playing close attention to Naughty Dog’s Uncharted franchise over the past couple of years. Swap out Lara Croft for Nathan Drake and this brand new Tomb Raider demo would look right at home on Sony’s stage.

In the demo, a fragile Lara is shown picking off foes with a bow-and-arrow, before falling down a waterfall, navigating its rapids, and – eventually – parachuting to safety. It’s breathtaking stuff, if a touch predictable.

Tomb Raider’s set to release on PlayStation 3 in March 2013. Check out the gameplay demo below – and, er, try to ignore all the Xbox branding.
