Shadow Of The Tomb Raider gameplay shows Lara's Predator-esque junglemurders

Goodness me, she's a stabby one

When Eidos Montreal say that Shadow Of The Tomb Raider takes us through the journey where Lara Croft "becomes the Tomb Raider that she's destined to be", I think they mean becoming a stone-cold mass murderer. They blasted a few minutes of gameplay footage during Square Enix's E3 press conference today, and it shows Lara's stealthy murdermoves from camouflaging herself in mud to firing rope arrows into mercs so she can swing down as the counterweight hauling them up and hanging them from branches. Goodness me. I reckon she's a real fan of Predator. See the vid below.

Ah, maybe the Tomb Raider she's destined to be is one tied up in tedious conspiracies. What happened to the one who fought dinosaurs, smoked cigars, and had a motorbike?
