First trailer for 'Rise of the Tomb Raider'

Rise and shine, gamers. Lara's back.

As this year's E3 expo comes into view, the first of the summer's major video game trailers has climbed the heights of the internet to whet the appetite of prospective button bashers - but there's not a lot to see. 

The latest cinematic sneak peek at Rise of the Tomb Raider shows Lara searching snow landscapes in search of a tomb (probably), muttering wistfully about the great explorers that inspired her. Following the action of the immensely successful reboot of the series, the new title will focus on Lara's progress from plucky raiding newbie to lethal stealer of artefacts. 

First up, she's got a blizzard and an icy mountain to conquer. Although our paramount concern is that she changes into something a bit more practical than skimpy shorts before she catches a cold.

It's brief, atmospheric and making us wish that a winter of gaming would hurry up already.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is due to arrive on Xbox 360 and Xbox One at the end of 2015
