Lara Croft is set to make her return in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and at its E3 2018 presentation, Microsoft offered a new peek at what she'll be up to when the game launches on September 14.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes place in a South American setting, with Lara once again taking on both the elements and a potential apocalypse. The trailer shows off elements we've come to expect from the Tomb Raider franchise, including solving puzzles and taking stealthily taking out enemies. Oh, and there's a palpable air of impending doom.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third entry in the rebooted series since Crystal Dynamics released Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. The game is expected to release on September 14 and is available for preorder now for $59.99.
