Eidos Montreal and Square Enix released a brand new Shadow of the Tomb Raider video starring Gameplay Director Daniel Drapeau.

Drapeau talks about Lara’s ability to swim underwater freely, finding environments like small caverns of massive challenge tombs. She is also able to traverse the canopies of trees, and wall-run.

Interestingly, the video also showcases concept artwork showing Lara in action as she explores the underwater depths.
