With a PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider confirmed for 2016, we suppose that we should start covering it like any other game. And this latest footage from Gamescom 2015 is worth talking about, as it shows heroine Lara Croft embroiled in a variety of sticky situations. Get your mind out of the gutter, we don't mean like that.

The demo starts with a car chase, and quickly escalates into some Uncharted-esque platforming. The environmental puzzles look pretty simple and we're not keen on the facial animations at all, but as a companion to Naughty Dog's work in the action adventure genre, we must say that this looks pretty darn good.

It's just a shame that we're going to have to wait so long to play it, as we reckon that it would make a great warm-up for the forthcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. To its credit, publisher Square Enix has said that it understands PlayStation fans' frustration, and has hinted that the third entry in the title's current trilogy will not be exclusive to any console.
