An all-new trailer for “Rise of the Tomb Raider” debuted this morning, offering a glimpse of Lara Croft’s drive and motivation as she embarks on a new adventure throughout the most treacherous and remote regions of the world and embraces her destiny as the Tomb Raider. The trailer showcases the spirit of adventure and discovery that drives Lara in this next chapter of her journey, launching exclusively on Xbox in 2015.

For some discovering the secrets of the world is the only way to live – Lara Croft

In addition to the debut of the trailer, Xbox and Crystal Dynamics revealed the box art for “Rise of the Tomb Raider.” Featuring Lara Croft holding a flare at the edge of an ancient secret tomb, the artwork draws on the sense of adventure, exploration and discovery that fans have come to expect from the legendary franchise.

Content: Outlast: Bundle of Terror
Check price and availability in your Xbox LIVE region

Game Description: This bundle includes Outlast and the Whistleblower add-on. Outlast is a true survival horror experience which aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind. In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the asylum has been operating in strict secrecy…until now.

In Whistleblower, you play as Waylon Park, a software engineer under contract with Murkoff and the man who emailed journalists around the world at the beginning of Outlast. Although Whistleblower tells the story that led to Outlast, it will actually stretch past the events of the first game to show the final chapter in Mount Massive Asylum’s story.
