We got some brand new Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay today at Square Enix’s E3 showcase regarding Lara’s panther-like skillset.

Abilities include fear-inducing poison arrows, Molotov cocktails, and of course, all the stealth kills you could hope for. You can find footage of the gameplay preview below.

We also got a preview of one of the game’s opening cutscenes. You can check out the video of that here.

There’s more news from Square Enix’s official E3 showcase and you can find some of it here. You can also check out the recent Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer which was unveiled during Microsoft’s E3 showcase yesterday.

While the previous Tomb Raider games in the series have shown Lara coming to terms with her “Tomb Raider” status, Shadow of the Tomb Raider sees a Lara who has fully realized her potential to not only raid tombs but to kill. It’s clear from the trailer that you play the predator in this game rather than the prey.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set to release on September 14 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You can pre-order the game now over on Amazon now.
