Today Square Enix is supposed to reveal Shadow of the Tomb Raider, bringing under the spotlight the new adventure of Lara Croft.

Well, looks like we’re getting to see the trailer a bit earlier, thanks to a leak that appears to come directly from Microsoft.

You can watch it here (unfortunately there is no embed code, so you’ll have to click on the link).

Update: The official trailer has been released, and you can check it out below.

The trailer is fully cinematic and shows no gameplay, but provides a look at a rather dark aspect of Lara, that seems to make rather short work of enemies, and as usual, tends to get hurt in all sorts of ways.

If you want to take a look at the game itself, yesterday Amazon leaked quite a few screenshots alongside the box art.

If you’re wondering whether there are any surprises left for the actual reveal, I am too. At least we’ll probably get a permanent trailer since this one is probably gonna get nuked soon. Enjoy it while it’s there.

The game will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 17th. You can you can already pre-order it on Amazon.
